Time Event
I've started playing IWD2 again with a different party, because I'm just not in the mood for action games, I guess. Or maybe it's too much effort to turn on the PS2 (I need to also pick up the TV remote so that I can switch inputs).

Actually, I've been playing a bit of Silpheed. I *love* Silpheed, and I'm not sure why. I can't get past the bit where you have to fight your own carrier, though (the miniboss after you fight the resupply ship, IIRC). Lately I keep getting killed in the warp tunnel, though. Out of practice.

Summoner 2 and Sly Cooper are supposed to be out today, so I'll probably start playing them. Tomorrow. Tonight is Lance's game again. Unless he's sick. He sent mail saying he might be sick. PnP RPG campaigns tend to have a rather high rate of cancellation, I've noticed... that's one reason I'm in so many.

Now, it's time for work. But first... lunch!

Current Mood: hungry
loiosh_de_talto got me thinking... I want a real-life Truman show. I think it was the Truman Show. The one about the person living a sitcom life who didn't know they were in a big reality show... that would be *so cool*.

Of course, it would be unethical to use humans in such an endeavor. Perhaps uplifted rats could be convinced that rodents ruled the world? They'd need to be able to speak (or develop a squeaky language that could be subtitled), and you'd have to make sure they were taught enough human-like morality not to gross people out, although you could accomplish that with electric shocks and food pellets even if you couldn't actually build in morality genetically.

Once you had a population of intelligent rats living in a little rat city working at probably fake little rat jobs, you could start adding disasters, ala Sim City. It'd be the ultimate reality show -- people would get to know the rats, and feel real emotions when they were really injured or maimed or killed, or otherwise tormented. Of course, you wouldn't want to overdo it, but it'd make a good season finale cliffhanger type deal once a year or so.

Or maybe squirrels instead of rats. The research is further along with rats, but squirrels are cuter.

Whatever you do, don't use bunnies. They're EEEVIL.

Current Mood: quixotic
