I saw Zombieland last week. Loved it.


My mom made fun of me for wanting to see that, I shouldn't have told her. Some people have no appreciation for the finer things.

My mom used to be into Voodoo way back when we lived in New Orleans, we were into all things occult... until she found Jesus on the Ouijia Board.

I told her the other day I thought Jesus was an alien-human hybrid and that's why he could perform miracles.

She said, "anything's possible."

if the stories are to be taken literally,
there can be no argument that Jesus was
an alien-human hybrid.

that's what the book says,
verbatim. game over.

You're sick. I wouldn't bring condoms, I would bring my baseball bat and my righteous fury to bash in the heads of all those who continue to worship the devil machines. Humanity will self-select with brutal violence towards the computer-sympathizers.

The faithful will be fruitful, of course. Very fruitful. Details in PM.

Just kidding! Or am I?

I like where you're going with this. How will the bear run if it has chainsaws for hands?

And, I've been just about nowhere. Just elsewhere on this big ol' internet of ours.

I caught my little girl licking the inside of a family sized bag of cheese puffs, she had orange dust all over her face.

I said, "Elle, that's gross.' She said, "I like Cheetoes". :lol:

So I decided to make a list of a small bundle of must-have items to keep in a closet or in the trunk of my car, so as to be prepared when the computer-smashing commences.

So far, I have:

-1 baseball bat, for the smashing of all thinking machines in sight.
-1 complete classic Dune series, for guidance, and as notes for religious texts.
-1 bottle of bourbon, because it's always a good idea to have one.
-1 Math textbook, because someone's got to learn to do that shit on paper again.

What else should go in the Butlerian Jihad emergency kit? Any other interesting preparations?

Be ready. The Thinking Machines will be crushed any day now.

It is interesting to note that more of my friends have a plan for the Zombie (or Machine) Apocalypse than plans for retirement.
If there's anything I've learned from working with monkeys, it's that there is no problem which cannot be solved by flinging poo at it.

Step 1: go to grocery store, steal crate of spam.

Step 2: gather large numbers of paperback novels.

Step 3: Become an enlightened rustic mountain man of the people?

Plus most people are idiots and believe old wives' tales as far as pregnancy, birthing, and child-rearing. We can fuck all we want in a post-tech world and most likely still see a decrease in population.


Exactly, something a lot of Ludites/Anarchists/Tribalists don't realize is if their plans were to suceed, a LOT of people would die. I'm also talking about the transition process, social change often comes with violence, but if we had some kind of "ludite uprising" fatalaties would be worse because the tools to treat victims of the violence would not be there.

But ok lets say EVERYONE became a ludite and decided to "down with technology" and there was no violence, without technology we would have to deal with darwinism again, something we don't have to contend with in modern society. I guess thats a double edged sword, as Dune does teach hardships/lack of dependencies= evolution/lack of weaknesses. But is it worth the price in lives?

If any of them dies, that is a required event, no more... It was just that all of them could not die.

A lot of people in history have used that rationale (Leto II having other memory had a lot of inspiration to draw from), and sometimes (in rare) cases it can be true. But is luditeism the right cause?

We'll have to find a balance between technology and nature, of course.

Advanced technology doesn't scare me, it's what happens when we lose it.

Exactly I totally agree.Its all about finding a intermediate (not easy I know). In my opinion people subscribe to the extremes of ideologies because it does all the thinking for them, they allready have a answer written down for them, they don't need to think. I love technology, I don't want it to do a crap for me and wipe my arse, but I don't want to live without it either.

I would have bought an ass wiping machine for kids. :puke:

[I guess that's what a bidet is, though.]

LOL who the hell wants water push up their ass? I'l stick with paper for that. Likewise I don't want to read a book on a computer or i-pad whathave you, I want to be able to take it in the bath and not risk electrocuting myself. Thats for practicallity, but I will eschew technology sometimes for sentimentallity. I don't download music. I prefer so much to have an actual physical CD albulm with artwork and lyrics in my hand.

I'm not sure I like where this is going but what the hell :lol:

Just for the record though, and before I find out for myself by going back in this topic, how did we get from religious war on AI to wiping asses?
Did someone mention the human toilet and poopoo at some point in the discussion?

Or at least have the decency to FLUSH, instead of PUBLISHING. :P
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA
