6/12    Enough people have seen the Matrix 2 already right?  What do you
        think happened near the end?  How was Neo able to destroy those
        sentinels outside of the matrix?  My pet theory is that nobody is
        outside the matrix.  There is a larger matrix that they're all still
        \_ I haven't seen the movie, but that's just the kind of stupid
           sophmoric shit i'd expect from it. -phuqm
           \_ <Keanu voice> WHOA
        \_ wow that's deep.
           \_ Deja vu!
        \_ your pet theory is everyone else's initial theory. seriously,
           \_ if that's everybody's first reaction, then the real reason must
              be something else.  The writer/directors aren't that lame.
              I bet they want a suprise ending for part III.
           everyone i've talked to, that's the first idea that popped in
           their minds
        \_ Read _Flatland_ by Edwin A. Abbott:
           "My Lord, your own wisdom has taught me to aspire to One even
            more great, more beautiful, and more closely approximate to
            Perfection than yourself. As you yourself, superior to all
            Flatland forms, combine many Circles in One, so doubtless
            \_ Platonic Forms?
        \_ It doesn't even have to be that there's a larger matrix.  The
           machines could've just start modifying itself to make them think
           that they left the matrix but never did.
           \_ Deja vu!
        \_ It's kinda lame that the machines put the humans in a virtual world
           with technology. Why not stick them in cavemen times?
           \_ Longer lasting batteries in a "modern" setting.
            there is One above you who combines many Spheres in One Supreme
            Existence, surpassing even the Solids of Spaceland."
            \_ Shut up ilyas.
               \_ Uh... what?  You motd people really don't know me that
                  well... The last 3 or 4 times someone guessed something
                  was from me .. it wasn't.  -- ilyas
                  \_ What's this defamatory, "you motd people" thing?  Who
                     the hell do you think you are to lump us all together
                     under some ugly label?
                     \_ smart
        \_ Yeah like wow!  No one else could possibly have thought of that!
           I'm sure there aren't hundreds of fanboi sites out there saying
           the same thing!  YOU ROCK!  LINUX ROCKS!  BIKING ROCKS!  ED ROCKS!
           ROCKS ROCK!
           \_ do i detect a hint of sarcasm?
           \_ Good old rock. Nothing beats that.
              \_ Paper beats rock.
                 \_ Do you have absolutely zero sense of humor? I thought so.
                    \_ A lot more than you do, apparently.
                       \_ more isn't necessarily better.  -phuqm
        \_ Don't you get it yet? Neo == Jesus + Superman. He can do whatever
           he wants whenever he wants where ever he wants.
           \_ Jesus loves me, yes I know, for the bible tells me so.
           \_ oh yeah?  if he's so super powerful in the matrix then why can't
              he just turn it off, or zap all the fbi-clone guardians guys
              instead of running away, or teleport instead of flying around?
                \_ Just like Jesus could have kicked the ass of
                   romans right? Strange and mysterious are the
                   ways of the lord.
                   \_ Just like God was nowhere to be found when Hitler was
                      exterminating the Jews eh?  The Lord works in mysterious
                      ways indeed.
                      \_ What do you mean God was nowhere to be found?  He
                         sent the mighty American war machine to crush
                         \_ He was just testing their faith, right?
                            \_ God can't intervene in everything.  Otherwise
                               we are but puppets.  When God gave us free
                               will, it includes the free will to commit
                                  \_ speak for your own penis.
                                  \_ But I'm thinking of you.
                               \_ This is why you guys should stop touching
                                  \_ But when I do, I'm thinking of you, baby.
        \_ I love how most of the replies have nothing to do with the Matrix :)
        \_ Matrix == Monsters, Inc.

6/13    What syllable do you accent when you say the word "silicon"?
        first syllable: ..
        last syllable:  .
        \_ now has a feature where you can hear the word.
           \_ What about the special feature where you just look at where
              they place the accent?
        \_ From /usr/local/bin/dict:
              Silicon \Sil"i*con\, n. [See {Silica}.] (Chem.)
        \_ Do you pronounce it "silicon" (rhymes with "cron") or
           "silicun" (rhymes with "bacon")?  I know what dict says, but
           how do real people pronounce it?
           \_ "real" people? get a clue. anyway, both pronunciations are
              used in practice, and both are acceptable.
