Thoughts . K-PAX
You can find treasures in old movies sold in widescreen DVD formats.
I'm lucky to be dwelling/working in a place not far where humans allow you to 'borrow' DVDs for around P65 - P80 (that would be a little over a dollar) and won't care if you'll return them or not. You'll only be asked to return if the disc is damaged. If you don't like the movie, as long as there are no scratches in the disc and you have enough guts to be abusive... you can even ask for a replacement (I told you i was lucky). No questions asked. (Of course you're three-digit IQ already knows what i'm referring here...)
Anyway... one of yesterday's loot was K-PAX. And... it was good. Good enough that i did scribbled on my EditPad some of the dialogue in that movie.
Doctor: K-Paxians have babies, right?
Prot: Oh, yes, much like on Earth, but unlike you humans, the reproductive process is quite unpleasant for us. It's more like having your nuts in a vise except we feel it all over. And to make matters worse, the sensation is associated with something like your nausea, accompanied by a very bad smell. The moment of climax is like being kicked in the stomach, and then falling into a pool of mod droppings.
Doctor: Mod droppings?
Prot:A mod is a being much like your skunk, only far more potent.
Doctor: Uh, if it's such a terrible experience, uh how do you reproduce?
Prot: As carefully as possible.
Doctor: What about societal structure? Government..?
Prot: No, there's no need for one.
Doctor:You have no laws?
Prot: No laws. No lawyers. (Microsoft won't exists on their planet)
Doctor:How do you know right from wrong?
Prot:Every being in the universe knows right from wrong, Mark.
Doctor:But what if someone did do something wrong-- how would you punish them?
Prot:Let me tell you something Mark. You humans, most of you, subscribe to this policy of 'an eye for an eye, a life for a life,' which is known throughout the universe... for its stupidity. Even your Buddha and your Christ had quite a different vision, but nobody's paid much attention to them, not even Buddhists or the Christians.
Prot:You humans, sometimes it's hard to imagine how you've made it this far.
Do watch if you have some time. You can even watch it even if you're coding and you're DVD is playing in the background.
