Shakespeare'd kick Chuck right in his Norris if he was alive.

ZOMG SUPERLIMINAL MESSAGING.

Shakespear = crappy

Romeo and Juliet, the real ending:

Romeo: OH NOEZ, SHE IS DEAD. I WILL BE EMO AND KILL MYSELF, FOR REALS THIS TIME.

Juliet: *Waking up*  So, you want some sex?

Romeo: I BLEED TO DEATH ON YOUR WORDS

Juliet: NOOEZ! I TOO WILL KILL MYSELF SO WE CAN HAVE GHOST SEX.

The coolest part about Shakespeare, if you think about it, was that he didn't even have the concept of "looking something up." There was no english dictionary worthy of mention until years after he died, so the stuff that he did write was all gleaned from a huge amount of reading. Like, we all take it for granted, but he likely had very little idea what an elephant was; certainly the others around him were clueless. So the fact that he pulled off so many thousands of references regarding history and foreign lands is amazing. Plus he really did have a way with words, and if you think it requires translating, well then learn your language better!

sometimes i piss myself off. i printed 20 copies of winterstorm, had a neat little spiel, i was even prepared to take over the projecter my teacher doesn't know how to use in order to better illustrate my points with the machinae website. maybe i shouldn't have insulted poetry so much, but he knew i was looking forward to this and he clipped everyone to a one minute - sitting. i wound up talking about the band more than the song, and when it came to examples i found myself using Ghost rather than Winterstorm. It's a very addicting song i find myself singing at the oddest times, but i never thought it would just pop out when i'm shooting from the hip. sigh. i don't suppose you could tell me how many people have visited the site for the first time from my subnet huh? i wonder if i had any shred of success. sigh. i've let you all down....

If they do not take them, use them as shurikens. They will see sense, or plently of blood flying around. Either one is ideal.

i just got a really wierd idea combining a whole bunch of philosophy ideas and conspiracy theories. i just finished the Truman show, i've been talking about star trek, and you probably saw my thread about the matrix. what if humanity has already brought itself to a communal state like star trek where there's a decent size faction devoted to entertainment? if most of society's basic tasks are automated and not everyone can be an explorer on a starship, entertainment would be the best way to kill time - exploring humanity. if you build a massive automated matrix, you could create any "show" you wanted. people could watch and analyze, and use this "show" to become more human. kind of like "the thirteenth floor". if all of this is true though, you don't necessarily have a "edge of the world" you can drive to - it could be like the infinite blackness of space. along this line, all the lightyears between us and any other galaxy would help discourage people trying to break out - especially our lack of space travel.

Think of the implications for porn....

I was always glad that the holodeck didn't actually exist. Remember that episode of TNG where what's-his-name played by Dwight Schulz gets all obsessed with the holodeck and doesn't want to leave? Yeah, that would be like half the population at least. Definitely me.

I'm sure if you also had the option to fly around on a starship exploring and getting into conflicts you may at least think of going outside the holodeck. I know I would.

Sucks what happened when the time came, but Ghost is a brilliant example, although there is a chance that the uneducated may misinterperate it as EMO.

As for the Trek thing... I'd much rather something like Avalon than a Holodeck, that or how the internet is in Ghost in the Shell, it was certainly interesting by the end of the second series.

Explanation of Avalon:

...and if you don't know what Ghost in the Shell is... I'm sure that you all know how to download or rent movies, buying them is the next step, you know, with money.

since i can't download here, i download when i'm home. i've got a torrent and a kazaa file that should be done by time i get home in 2 weeks of Ghost in the Shell. I'm going to have to add Avalon to this list. Are there any other philosophical type anime's?

oh yeah, i just finished the FF7 movie and was very impressed. any more along the FF line worth watching?

i dont know how long you can watch porn, but even the best fuckers in the world can only go for a couple days. at least that's what they say in the kama sutra....
