I can't believe I've never read this: I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream
Just read this short story by Harlan Ellison.

It's dark... really dark.

But, and amazing story... character driven... an original premise. Not much else that compares to it.

And, it was written in 1967*.

*I had no idea they called people "douche bags" in 1967.

Anyway, if you haven't read it and want to, follow this link.

I remember reading that when it was published in a sci-fi magazine in the late 60's. It won a Hugo award.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

It was a pretty interesting video game, too.

Oh sure, you young whipper-snappers came up with everything like that. You are all so original and creative...so far beyond we old fogies. Dodgy

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

I was meaning to look into the video game, yeah. Even if it's not good, I'd be interested in it.

In other news, i recently got "The Essential Ellison" collection and have been reading it in doctor's office waiting rooms (short stories are good for this, but this book weighs about 50 fucking pounds).

Claude Rains has a line in Casablanca about catching a girl on the rebound. That one always surprises me...

Sometimes you have to go old school...calling someone Summer's Eve doesn't have quite the same punch as calling them a douche.
