I want to believe that The Bechtrev's Brain Institute was literally run by Bechtrev's Brain

Obi-Wan: Vader was seduced by the false class consciousness of the petit-bourgeousie. He betrayed his dialectical materialist ideals and joined the social democratic capitalist-roaders and their primitive superstitions. When that happened, the good man who was your father died. But also he could crush people's windpipes with his brain, which improved productivity on Third Five Year Plan immensely. So it was hard to fire him.

(smiles)

He was a good windpipe-crusher.

I wonder if people volunteered to be the Biological Sensor (Human), or if they were volunteered by others

You can kinda get a sense of where large chunks of Star Wars came from. The 1970s!

An Evil Empire with revolutionary yet bureaucratic ideals that does not officially believe in psi powers but is also using them.

Project managers who don't accept 'no' for an answer

Put both of these together and you get Raspu-Stalin in a robot space suit

They're waiting for you, Gordon, in the tesssst chambbbber

Have you considered..... just going back to selling plain JPG banner ads with no Javascript in them?

Cos I didn't use an ad blocker back when that was the deal.

You could have avoided this, you know. By not, uh, renting your ad space out to the worst skeeze on the planet who are cooking the digital equivalent of nerve gas.

But you didn't, so. A bit awkward for everyone, yes.

Oh! And do you like it? I also changed my hair, what do you think?

No, I'm not going to turn off my antivirus or my firewall. Also not going to give you my banking PIN and my password.

Oh, your popup doesn't go away? Gee, that's awkward for you. Byeeeee.

It's been good to have this talk. We should meet up more often.
