fusillade762: wildcardjack: I spent three years in tech support.

I fear no hell.

Pfft. Customer service is WAY worse than tech support, imo. At least you don't get people accusing you of stealing from them.


Hah! "It's not working, I pay my bill on time and it's supposed to be always working, you owe me eleventy billion dollars!"

Vanis: Sandwyrm: I always thought the Borg hivemind was a version of hell.  Forever trapped inside your own head, your body being operated by a foreign intelligence, always surrounded by countless trillions of voices that know every single thing about you.

Forever insignificant, just another cog in a mind-blowingly vast machine.  A real implementation of the total perspective chair from the Hitchiker's guide.



That's not how I understood it at all. I always understood it as you lose your sense of self and become one more part of a sort of Borg "godhead"and as an individual ceased to exist. You never feel trapped or insignificant because you don't exist except as a cell in the Borg brain. The Borg are the ants while the colony, or Borg Collective, is the organism.

But I'm probably wrong. Not that I'd want anything to do with the Borg either way. Scary farkers.

John Dewey: Subby, are you implying hell isn't fictional?

Not sure how it relates to the afterlife though . . .

At least in real life, you can delude yourself into believing that something you do matters.

I always hated Defending Your Life. Glad this article called it out. Albert Brooks stinks.
