Orbit1: greedy dumbfucks
Orbit1: dude that's how i think organic organisms *evolve*
Orbit1: eventually we all become machines
Orbit1: we're witnessing the early stages of that now
Orbit1: it will take thousands of years
Orbit1: and then we will manifest ourselves into a type of AI and evolve from there
Orbit1: populate the universe with machinery
Orbit1: we already immerse ourselves into electronica (text messaging, games etc)
Orbit1: eventually we'll upload ourselves into a network
Orbit1: our minds
Orbit1: silicon and carbon baby
Orbit1: there's actually a paradox there
Orbit1: if you upload your *mind* into a computer... who's the real you?
Orbit1: does that create another self aware cloned being of you?

Miklos: Check out what I found by the accounting printer
Matt: A pen?
Miklos: Yeah, it's nice.. Try it..
Matt: I don't want to.
Some time passes, I'd say about 10-15 minutes... Matt goes to the washroom, and after coming back:
Matt: Where did you find that pen?
Miklos: By the accounting printer.. why?
Matt: What were you doing there?
Miklos: I don't know.. oh! Refilling my water bottle. .. Hrm.. where IS my water bottle?
(Matt laughing)
Miklos: Shit! I left it there. Man, I didn't even use the washroom.
Matt: So you just went to get bottle refilled, got distracted by something shiny, put the bottle down on the cooler, forgot about it and came back?
Miklos: Yeah and I guess I just kept working...

Dave: What?
Tom: Well, I'm going to our CIO's Barbeque!
Dave: You have got to be shitting me.
Tom: No, I'm serious, I JUST found out that my wife works with his wife and that is how I got invited.
Dave: Sounds like you finally got a shot at management.
Tom: Yep, I'm going to cook him up a hot dog and maybe he'll be like "wow this guy has potential."
Dave: The only way that a person in his position will see potential in someone for a management would be if you completely screwed up. My advise is to burn the shit out of the hot dog and hand it to him... actually, you said CIO right?
Tom: heh, yeah.
Dave: Then you would get farther handing him a piece of cut up garden hose and calling that a hot dog! Now, that is management material.
