Given I was once probably amongst those considered 'spammy' back when this place was at it's peak, I find it ironic that my attempts to bring order from chaos are being rebuffed.

We need order McCoy, YOU should appreciate this.

I want to get back on-topic, plus I couldn't resist watching the Guy Pierce movie 'The Time Machine' last night (well 15 minutes of it).

Lightbulb International dog

Perhaps a nice bratwurst with cheese baked inside, a big stadium roll and a stripe each of cheap American yellow mustard and sriracha hot sauce.

I'm definitely having that for lunch.

I prefer to think of it as the Samantha Mumba movie, 'The Time Machine', and as far as I'm concerned 15 minutes of it is all that matters.

If you could cryogenically freeze yourself with a guarantee that you'd be brought back to life in 100 years, leaving all your friends and family behind, would you do it?

Think it would depend on several factors. One of them would have to be having an illness that couldn't currently be cured.

I don't think the lure of seeing the future would be enough for me. What if society has already peaked and the future is bleak and awful?

Do they have phasers yet?

If not, I'm going back to cryosleep because I hear tell there are wookies there.

Cryogenically freeze myself? Na. For one thing, culture shock sucks. For another, I'd have to spend a lifetime making another set of good real-life friends I'd be comfortable with.

But on the plus side, all your current real-life friends would be DEAD and you'd have the last laugh. HAHAHAHA! Like that.

It's possible that the future isn't bleak and awful. More than likely, even. I'd want to be cryogenically frozen until such time as humanity has easy access to flying cars and hoverboards, at least.

Exclamation Urban sprawl

If the future looks like Detroit, I'm heading for the past. Thanks.

(If one isn't familiar with the downfall of American civilization, know that Detroit has been a slow motion dance into Armageddon for about 20 years now, and recently declared bankruptcy. There are no jobs, the infrastructure is failing, most of downtown is boarded up and it is dangerous just walking the streets in broad daylight.)

Now, what the Matrix had to say about AI...

That would be another matter.

Thumbs up Ichi ban

I would move to Japan, for the swords, the zen, the tea, the kabuki theatre and the lovely geishas. Did I mention saki? Or anime?

I'd bring my own clothes, though. I think a kimono looks like a dress.

Oregon is NOTHING like Detroit. Here we have forested mountains, wild elk and unknown parts where white man has not yet set foot. Big Foot lives here, they say.

I stay well away from cities like Detroit. Although I do live in the rough part of town here in the little city of Medford, when one hears gunshots in the night...it usually means someone has a possum in the yard.

Thumbs up Professional

Don't worry, the earth itself serves as the circle.

...Which is why all the demons and devils are safely locked in Hell underground, inside the circle.
