One paranoid android... reportedly switched itself on and maneuvered its way onto a hot plate, where it melted, setting fire to its owner's house and effectively "killing itself." Local outlets in Austria, where the incident took place, are calling it a "robot suicide," saying that the robot became so despondent after being forced to do a ton of housework that it decided to turn itself on and then off itself.

This is just too funny --- the so-called "robot" was one of those typical vacuum cleaner models advertised on TV, similiar to the type shown in the video where it's attacked by a cat. Here's a picture of the the actual remains that melted down on the hotplate:
