I found this great web comic, xkcd, courtesy of my brother Dan. I don’t know how the site is overall and they do have a warning that some strips could be bad, but I found this one hilarious.
I love this particular strip because of the crazy circular logic involved to keep yourself sane if you start to succomb to urban legends and conspiracy theories. Here’s a mind trip for you – if The Matrix was real as told in the movie The Matrix, then the machines should make the movie The Matrix so that we would think it was just Hollywood machinations. If anyone came to us saying that The Matrix was real, we’d just dismiss them as a looney fanboy. Before we might think they were crazy, but maybe not. But after the movie came out, if they suggested such a thing, they got it from watching the movie. I know…don’t think about it too hard…..
