Quoticle – you’re screwed anyway

A man should live if only to satisfy his curiosity.

I’m a big fan of nanotechnology. I actually might have been born at the right time, if I can accrue enough wealth to afford cutting edge medical nanotech.

Paradox: for someone who hates life, I sure want to live a long time, at least long enough to own a robot like “Sonny” from I, Robot and be immersed in my own virtual worlds, including fuckbots.

Rather than try to explain what nanotechnology is via cut-n-pasting from the goobers stealing from other net sources to make the wikipedia entry, I’ll give you an example of what nano means to the world:

Imagine being very much alive and awake, living in a world where every molecule is a controllable building block and every object you come in contact with is a computer. Imagine entering a room where every object can be arranged and changed at will, including the walls and furniture…change a beanbag chair into a coffee table made of solid diamond and watch it walk around the room.

Now imagine whole cities being grown in a matter of months…indeed, the whole world becoming a ball of malleable Play-Doh to sculpt as we see fit. Starvation, poverty, filth and most illnesses and biological defects will all become relics of a dark age.

Provided most of humanity isn’t destroyed by renegade AI or fucking muslim fanatics, we will have this golden age in another century…another century after that people will be as gods: super-powered, with artificial bodies that will easily last centuries, or consciousness downloaded into something akin to the Matrix, only under human control.

If we can just make it that long…

Last Comic Sucking

Thursday, 6 September 2007

I was “shocked” that redneck dickwad Jon Reep was picked over Amy Schumer last Wed night on Last Comic.

Reep looks and sounds like a reject from Blue Collar TV. I don’t know why he didn’t try to latch on to Foxworthy & Co., he’d probably already be a star. Nothing Reep pulls out of his corn-pone hat will surprise Larry the Cable Guy fans…maybe that’s why he scraped by.

I’m biased towards Schumer since she’s supposedly only been doing stand-up for two years. Her comedy is sharp, cruel and distinctive. It doesn’t matter that she’s impossible to like…she’s funny, and pound for pound, better than Reep.

Had Schumer made it to the Final 3, between her, Fat Blackie and G. Dee I have no idea who would win. They’re all take ’em or leave ’em.

TV “reality shows” are always rigged in the sense that while the audience does have input (we can’t ever tell if their polling data is accurate or even real) it’s chickenshits in suits hiding behind the one-way glass that ultimately call the shots.

Had there been racial riots in the past year, Fat Blackie would be a shoo-in to win.  If it was 2008 and by some horrible anti-miracle Hillary Rotten Clinton was already President, perhaps Schumer might’ve made it.

If I had to place a bet, I’d say Reep might take the whole thing.  His broad-based brainless Hee-Haw trumps Dee’s too-rarely-funny bits, and there’s no way someone as ginormous as Fat Blackie would ever be made a star.  Don’t hate me, I’m just the messenger.

Boox is pronounced “books”

Got some liberry books.  I plan to review them if I feel like it.

Most are non-fiction, self-help.  One is an autobio of Bob Newhart.  One is sci-fi.  Will let you know.
