In our greed we should steal ;

"A Sticky Situation" (1960) by Carl Barks

I like how advertising is literally still exactly as sexist as they’re joking about in this comic from 54 years ago.

If you actually read The Fault In Our Stars, it's one of the most ingenious things ever written.

What a world we live in, where there is a quantum state of a book being either awesome or horrible based solely on whether or not I have read it.

Schrödinger’s novel.

I don’t understand science fiction stories about “the dangers of technology” or bullshit like that, because if you don’t like technology, then why are you writing scifi???

This was, oddly enough, my reaction toward a lot of Pixar movies? Not just anti-technology, but anti-modernism is a theme in a lot of Pixar movies, but they were for a long time unparalleled pioneers in computer animation? 

I can understand that the theme of a lot of anti-technological speculative fiction during the ’50s and ’60s was more a matter of “Look how dangerous this technology can be in the hands of we humans who are cruel and infantile”, like The Day the Earth Stood Still and various Twilight Zone episodes, especially the ones that deal with nuclear power and are veiled references to the Cold War. 

But that’s very different from, for example, the Star Trek Next Generation episode “The Game”, where a Skinner Box game incapacitates and brainwashes the crew, which was inspired by the writer observing his sons playing Nintendo. My favorite twist on this theme is the Futurama episode “Obsoletely Fabulous”, which not only satirizes anti-technology in a sci-fi setting but also doubles as a very clever adaptation of “An Occurrence At Owl Creek Bridge”.
