    But I know real life; it is the present, the past. The future is less defined, more open-ended, and therefore much more exciting, since I still have a chance to control it. SF is just a mental playground in which to test out ideas and have fun at the same time. Far better than conducting real-time human experimentation -- or at least more efficient, and more ethical.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I'm an objective observer as well and don't see as so clear cut. I see both sides. Marm, you did overreact. I think you would agree with this. Jenaphor, you're being completely logical and straightforward. Yet you are being insensitive. You continued to push when it was no longer necessary.

    Maybe the best thing is to recognize when we are pushing each other person's buttons, apologize, and make amends. It's not that hard.

    @Burning Rave, @93JC...thank you for believing.

    This is the best of all the threads.
    And so long as you haven’t experienced this: to die and so to grow,
    you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth

    Way too depressing. Shut it off after the first 30 minutes.
