But you had just recently returned.  Well, Chris, if you must go, you have done well in paraphrasing one of the best movies of the 90s for your parting quote.  I watched it again just this past year (it's available for streaming on Netflix), with more than a dozen years since my last viewing.  It still holds up on every level.  When it first came out, the notion of having your life broadcast to the world was considered a dystopian nightmare—one from which Truman is trying to wake.  Instead, when the technology arrived that allowed people to broadcast their lives to the world, they did so willingly.  How quickly things change.  Or, maybe it's just the autonomy that counts.  Life is strange.  Farewell.

How's it going to end?
“Arguing with anonymous strangers on the Internet is a sucker's game because they almost always turn out to be—or to be indistinguishable from—self-righteous sixteen-year-olds possessing infinite amounts of free time.”

pick a side already

(couldn’t resist the fitting irony, since it’s a quote at the bottom of KK’s posts.  Okay back to REALITY guys. Have a nice life......)
