    I think we should have a thread dedicated to the strange, bizarre, unusual, and the provocative. Kinda like the X-files, The Twilight Zone, and The Outer Limits. You know things that'll make you go hmmm or give ya the hebbie jeebies. I'll start off. Check out these two Brain teaser atricles.

    If that doesn't get ya thinking try this one. It's guaranteed to make you squirm.

    Gee thanks VG...now every time I eat ANYTHING, ANYWHERE, I hafta worry about getting a brain worm! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Reading that made me queasy. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

    As for the computer/brain...I guess all the people that read Frankenstein and 2001: A Space Odyssey didn't get past the basic story lines. Until they make a Ziggy from Quantum Leap, I would prefer they not announce their discoveries.
    Don't bark at me...<b>I</b> didn't name ya.

    The computer brain reminds me of the movie Terminator. [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    I like how they say in the article that we want the brain to be our friend not our enemy. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    Why would they bother to create such a thing?

    You know, that makes me thinking about the holodeck on Star Trek.

    You KNOW what most of the people do with their recreation time in there, don't you?

    That's a good point Van Gully. But all I can see is the Androids malfunctioning and taking over the earth. LOL!

    I guess I read too many comic books. [img]smilies/redface.gif[/img] [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Here's a link that I posted as a thread a few months a go. I thought it would fit in perfectly with this thread also. I wonder if they succeeded?
