IBM thinks these five things will happen in the next five years, I have opinions on them:
Sure, why not?
Probably not going to happen for everything, but it’ll certainly be convenient.
That seems a little out there, but I guess it’s possible.
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
ha ha heh, I still can’t get over how stupid number 4 is. Hey IBM, if you’re including wild fantasy why not throw in immortality and world peace?

The way I figure it right now there are two types of people. Those playing Halo Reach, and those waiting for the matchmaking to find them a game of Halo Reach.
But seriously, I’ve been playing through the Halo Reach campaign and it has presented me with an interesting conundrum. TINY SPOILER ALERT: At some point in the campaign your team is sent to burn a science facility that has fallen to the enemy. The thought that immediately occurred to me is what kind of science facility doesn’t have a self-destruct sequence?
The next thought was; has any building ever, in real life, had an actual self-destruct sequence?
Sure it would create some very difficult engineering problems, and some very serious safety concerns, but it’s not like it’d be impossible right?

According to recent satellite imagery the disputed Indian/Bangladeshi territory of South Talpatti/New Moore Island has disappeared into the sea. No word yet on whether dula grubs are responsible, but come on, what else could it be?
Incidentally this is also a lot like the book Jingo, which I just ruined for you.

According to Oliver Sacks there is a part of the brain specifically devoted to cartoons, that when stimulated can produce cartoon hallucinations. But don’t just take my word for it.
Sure there are other brain parts for things like buildings and teeth and stuff. But I don’t think it’d be half as fun trying out those hallucinations.
