So you also updated your routine that sends all personal conversation to you secretly?

If the world doesn't post anything, I would be replying to ghosts, no? :shrug: Whilst I have been known to talk to myself from time to time (as all good men of conscience do), talking to ghosts is a whole other psychosis which requires far more than the usual drugs to quell. :wink:

I guess I don't even want to know which  drugs are your usual ones.

Haven't had any "real" drugs since I was 16 - so, at 43, I imagine most of it has washed out of the bloodstream by now.  Or, indeed, in nature's own version of replacing resources, more than a few of the cells themselves either were regrown, or just plain died - neurons, et al.  Like most people, I cry not for the death and detritus along the way to the long slow decline into carbon-neutrality.

The long and winding road ( ;) ) to your inevitable death is less hard on drugs, I guess.

Less "hard on" drugs...  Like Viagra?  I don't think scripting can help there. :D  ResHacker is quite useful, but some things are beyond even its existential means.

Indeed, even Viagra couldn't help that ghost.

Viagra makes the road longer, though.

One wonders why it's not mentioned in the manual under "robust" actions, then.  Nikos gets such a kick out of all these other subliminal messages he puts in the programme but leaves that one out.  Strange.

The product is called "robust reproduction", right?

Robust deletion is, after all, about as close as you can get to that road of inevitable death.

Deletion is a passive way to die.

Hence the reason one needs to hold "Shift" for the proper way - it provides community involvement in what would otherwise be a pretty mundane way to die.  Community involvement, by its very definition, cannot be considered passive - so, as the world is out to suicide us anyway, it's a justified philosophical stance to take as a final goal.

Most people want to die in their sleep - not that they get much choice in the matter, thankfully.  That would be boring.

Of course they have. They can choose a more active way.

People usually lack the will required for positive action - they always get tripped up by the emotional inconveniences.  Takes a rare (or desperate) man to overcome those.
