    This makes no sense. If a tree gave off wifi signals, then the tree would be able to access the internet. What the hell’s a tree going to post on twitter?

    I can only wonder about what snack foods we are missing out on, given that the surviving species of the world are at less than 0.1%.

    So is it a bad sign or a good sign that I actually hear Vincent Price narrating this?

    Define empty life, as it sounds like this guy had a lot going on.

    too many people living empty lives

    Well, when you put it like that, God is apparently your ex-girlfriend.

    These are two videos from one of my favorite Vocaloid (Japanese Music Generation Software) artists Sasakure:

    Never mind the incredibly sad visuals, try to pay attention to the lyrics provided.
    *Hello Planet is actually something I’d like to do someday; Just go up to everything I meet and say “Hello” to it.
    The Heap Princess and Apostrophe would make a pretty good argument toward the gentle sentience of machine life.
    Regardless, try to watch either video and not cry.

    I’ve also heard of a similar story:

    The Zen master Hakuin was praised by his neighbors as one living a pure life.

    A beautiful Japanese girl whose parents owned a food store lived near him. Suddenly, without any warning, her parents discovered she was with child.

    This made her parents very angry. She would not confess who the man was, but after much harassment at last named Hakuin.

    In great anger the parents went to the master. “Is that so?” was all he would say.

    After the child was born it was brought to Hakuin. By this time he had lost his reputation, which did not trouble him, but he took very good care of the child. He obtained milk from his neighbors and everything else the little one needed.

    A year later the girl-mother could stand it no longer. She told her parents the truth – that the real father of the child was a young man who worked in the fishmarket.

    The mother and father of the girl at once went to Hakuin to ask his forgiveness, to apologize at length, and to get the child back again.

    Hakuin was willing. In yielding the child, all he said was: “Is that so?”

    Frankly, I find this to be more in tune with my policy of “Resisting by Non-resistance”, but that may be my opinion.

    Oh, wait…
    I know a good movie that no one’s ever seen: “Enemy at the Gates”
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0215750/
    One of my favorite war movies, this is the story of a Russian sniper in the battle of Stalingrad who, as thanks for save the life of a war correspondent, is made out to be an unstoppable hero in the press who is single handed turning the tide of the war. But this backfires when he not only gets involved in a love triangle with the correspondent and a nurse (I think, it’s been a while), but this also attracts the attention of the Nazi’s best sniper who’s way out of the Soviet’s league. It’s a great cat and mouse fight and really gives you an appreication for the nerve racking toll a sniper must endure.

    Kung Fu Hustle!
    The thing that’s really funny about that (and any Stephen Chow movie) is that even though he plays it as a goof-ball, slapstick, bug-eyed comedy, if you stripped all that away, you’d actually have a very serious, very heart breaking story.
    It’s about a man who tried to be a hero, but when he sucks at it, he realized that only evil ever truly wins. So he dedicates his life to being a criminal. But when he sucks at that too, and realizes that his only good deed had serious positive repercussions, he becomes the hero he was all along.

    Also, I realize these are animes and that this may make them a dirty word, but if you liked Spirited Away (or any Miyazaki film), you’d love the work of director Mamoru Hasoda who made such instant classics as “The Girl who Leapt Through Time” (which will make you realize the true meaning of the phrase “Time waits for no one”) and “Summer Wars” (which is now my favorite movie of all time). I’d also recommend the “Eureka Seven Movie”, but that barely makes sense to anime fans, so I’m not sure what it’d do to a non-fan. Still, it’s holds true as the greatest experssion of pure romance I’ve ever seen.

    I agree that this is a weak mindfuck. Anyone who has seen the first (and only worth watching) matrix has already toyed with this idea.

    Here’s a real mindfuck:
    Say there is a similar situation. where video games have advanced to infinitely expansive levels. Players can immerse themselves in their games with programmed AIs so real you couldn’t tell the difference. But what if you weren’t the player from the real world? What if you were one of the programmed AIs? What if you were an AI so advanced, you were able to convince yourself that you were a real person in a real world when in reality, you never existed outside of digital memory. How could you tell the difference? What could prove that you are in fact a plaything for someone who is real?
