    Best Onion piece EVAR — at least since they reported on the fate of the 9/11 hijackers.

    OT:
    There are now videos available of new life-forms being created 😉

    Seriously though, I’m thinking of getting “Spore” for my kid. (I’ll assist him with it, of course). If I understand it correctly, you (the player) become the intelligent designer for life-forms on earth.

    Here’s the wiki game description:

    “Spore is a multi-genre single-player online game..developed by Maxis and designed by Will Wright. It allows a player to control the evolution of a species from its beginnings as a unicellular organism, through development as an intelligent and social creature, to interstellar exploration as a spacefaring culture. It has drawn wide attention for its massive scope, and its use of open-ended gameplay and procedural generation.”

    Oddly enough, the word evolution in the wiki description above links to the wiki evolution page that allows no possibility of design – even though the evolution in the game is clearly guided! 🙂

    Funny, but I wish it didn’t take suicide so lightly

    If life has no meaning or purpose, how else can you take suicide?

    But, of course, life does have purpose, so I see your point.

    It’s just that I know at least three people, two that I graduated with, from my high school that have committed suicide. It’s a sensitive issue for me.

    i think the idea that life can be decided at the toss of a coin is to look at it all like God can change things whenever he wants to. we cant plan on always getting what we want, we have to leave room for God’s work, because we never know when hes gonna flip the coin on us.
