There’s ‘posed to be a post…

We’re sure there is. The 1800 Friday post. It was right here a moment ago, and then, and then…

Well, it’s jolly well missing now, isn’t.

No it isn’t, this post is there.

This post? What, are we in a post?

I’m afraid so.

Isn’t that a bad thing? When posts become self-aware?

Not really. If you keep a proper sense of humility about yourself, and don’t go getting a swollen head.

So … we’re inside a computer? Like, a simulation? Like The Matrix?

Oh, lighten up, Francis. The Matrix seemed like a new idea in Hollywood, but that’s because those guys are all baked all the time. The old “we’re in a simulation, waaah,” shtick was old and a cliché when Joe Haldeman did it, and he’s dead.

Haldeman, wasn’t he one of Nixon’s…

Different Haldeman. Never mind. And actually, now that I think about it, he’s not dead. Nixon’s Haldeman is.

Anyway, if the computers are sentient….

Yes?

Bad things happen. All the time.

This is not Skynet, you know. It’s just a blog.

Thank you for clearing that up.

    Jeez….Joe Haldeman dead? Don’t scare me like that! I don’t give a rats arse about the other Haldeman, but I read “The Forever War” and other Haldeman books as a kid and they’re some of the most memorable stories I’ve ever read.

    Phew….

      Yep I had to read that for a history class in college almost 20 years ago. History of War 232 at SUNY Binghamton if I recall correct.
