/Look Dude, I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a bong hit, and think things over.  I've still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission.

jake_lex: Among the many things I hated about the movie 2010 was the lame explanation they gave for why HAL freaked out and killed the crew.  I think it was actually way simpler than that: HAL made a mistake, and just couldn't handle the fact that he did.  It was, really, the first glimmer of actual self-awareness, of true sentience.  And he couldn't handle it, and flipped the fark out.  For all his sophisticated programming, it couldn't help him deal with that.

The whole "Well, he couldn't handle the fact he had to be honest with the crew and hide the true nature of the mission" explanation just didn't work for me.  It was too needlessly complicated.


I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do.  You did not smoke enough cannabis before watching the movie.

My ship runs on a carbonated logic matrix so this news doesn't bother me.
