“You can guarantee that as an adult, if someone were to tell you to say thank you, you would be defensive because you don’t want to be told what to do. Invite your child to join you in showing appreciation. Don’t just tell them.”

As we all know Destiny is all about repetitious grinding that will consume your time in leveling it up to 20, so one Destiny player devised a clever way to do this without touching the controller.
Yavin247 posted on Reddit that he created a robot that automates pressing the melee button over and over again.
He did it on a mission that started in the Moon called The Dark Beyond where you will face hundreds of enemy waves in the Temple of Crota after you have located a Dead Guardian. The trick in this mission is that you don’t need to kill the big yellow bar Hive knight and kill yourself and restart on the same checkpoint. This is where the robot comes in handy.
While yavin247 was asleep, his robot continued grinding overnight, and in the morning he posted the results saying, “Woke up this morning to a brand new 20! Had about 3600 kills, and 900 deaths (LOL), and like 50 green engrams. I started at level 16.5 yesterday afternoon, and reached 20 sometime while I was asleep. With the armour I had waiting for him he is now a 26.”
“To those just now joining us,” he added, “I had a little fun with a couple of servos taped to an Xbox controller to repeatedly kill hive on Ocean of Storms for me. Background: I am a (semi?) serious player with 300+ hours and a 32, but when I went to level up my titan it felt so joyless. So this popped into my head as a fun little challenge.
“I did it more for the hell of it, and I’ll be the first to admit I could have done it much faster manually. To those saying it’s pathetic, I don’t disagree with you. That’s why my post title shows some confliction [sic]. But it’s much less an exploit (least effective way to level up ever) than a bit of fun, just to see if it could be done, and no one else was negatively affected by it. Some people did get some laughs out of it though.”
