I've had a very long day at work, and I'm exhausted, and watching this has made my day. I'm so happy that I don't have to deal with people like this in my line of work, in my daily life, and that, thus far at least, I'm not like this.

On his sidetable, Luke has a textbook for ancient Greek (the brown book on the bottom), and a copy of Plotinus (the green book on top). He's a classicist! Is that masculine?

God I hate LVT's movies, and I'm deeply suspicious of people who enjoy them. I'll take "Salo" over "Doggville" or "Breaking the Waves" anytime.

Hmmm. Robot paranoia has fallen out of the cultural imaginary? I guess that explains why no one watched B.S.G. Oh wait...
