    Susan, Lemont is talking about different kind of experiences than your dates were talking about.

    Now I understand why Susan never got married.

    I’ve long had a riff about AI-robots. Yes, it will turn out that they’re possible, but.

    It will take 9 months to build one (sometimes you can get two or three from a particularly good production crew)

    They’ll be useless until trained, which will take from 18 to 24 years. And some of them will flunk out and take up residence in the back of the labs.

    And the first thing they’ll do when they join the work force is ask for a raise. And better perqs.

    If you actually think that’s the goal, Big L, then there’s very little hope for you. Susan is wise to keep this whole thing platonic.

    I’ve known guys like that Susan. I never liked them either and I’m a guy.

    Games simulate life, Lamont. You’ve got your causation backwards.

    (Fine. It’s a joke. I get that. The broken logic makes it funny)

    That’s honestly how I live my life. Don’t get me wrong, I can differentiate fantasy from reality, but there’s nothing written that I can’t make it fun. My age is my level and I earn EXP from dealing with people (in person or on the net) and get achievements from completing milestones. I earn points when performing a task and I get a perfect score when I do it right (by MY standards) and bonus points if I do it better. I take damage from sad events, etc. life is a video game and mine is an RPG.

    Just like any other game, it’s just another way of killing time.

    Of course it’s pretty easy to argue that video games are a simplified version of real life. Also, worrying about whether or not we’re living in a simulation is pointless. We experience stuff. Maybe it’s real, maybe not. How can we tell? For extra credit, define “real.”

    If life were really a game, the rules would be a lot more realistic.

    Obviously it’s much more likely that reality is designed after a video game than the reverse.

    This is actually a spot on description of life. Nice, Darrin!

    This is what happens when you let physicists play with math – reality is a simulation.

    STOP WATCHING “The 13th Floor”!
