the adventures of brain in a beaker "telling tales" guy 1: have you seen the sneezing panda? guy 2: dang! why is this computer so slow? guy 1: oh, i guess 'cause it's hooked up to my brain in a beaker. guy 2: huh? guy 1: oh. it's a disembodied brain, stimulated by the computer to believe it's a functioning person, but it's in a virtual reality. guy 2: that's wild! have you ever told it that it's a brain in a beaker? guy 1: that defeats the whole purpose of a brain in a beaker! you want a diet dr. pepper? guy 2: nah. computer: folders: brain in beaker: interface: input message: you are a brain in a beaker. tap tap tap guy 1: hey! what're you doing?! guy 2: oh! nothing! checking out that panda! quit guy 1: hey, you've seen the star wars kid, right? guy 2: um... and so - editor: i don't get it! why on earth would you create a series of comic strips about a brain in a beaker? man: I don't know! the idea just popped into my head!
