Telepathy, Facebook and Cloning

Being telepathic would be like being on Facebook all the time. I don't think I would like that. Knowing what's going on in other peoples' heads is not all it's cracked up to be.

What is it with Facebook and people demanding you to "wake up" and think for yourself? As if anybody does that. Nobody is thinking for themselves when they're online. They're reading the thoughts of dozens of others, almost hoping to be persuaded by some of them. It's very strange. And conformity seems to be the rule there. I've never done well with conformity. Not because I'm some great rebel. More because I'm just a misfit anywhere I go. I could probably clone myself and I wouldn't get along with him either.

I wonder how hard t would be to beat up an exact clone of yourself. How long would it take to land that first sucker punch that changes the tide in your favour? Clones are probably assholes. If I hung out with one for an hour I think I'd end up wanting to kick the shit out of him for something or other.


  1. I always thought about beating myself up. Later as my number of regrets in life grew larger, I thought about travelling back in time to beat myself up before I did whatever I was thinking of doing.

  2. I do that all the time. I think about shit I did in the past and wish I could go kick the shit out of myself for it. But the more I think about it, the more I realise it's an ongoing cycle. Ten years from now I'll want to punch out my current self.

  3. That's true, I'd thought something similar but it hadn't formed into words yet. Besides, you are kind-of a prick.
