Zarathustra taught that the wold is but a narrow sliver of light and truth menaced by an endless abyss of darkness and falsehood. He taught that insects, lizards and snakes were tiny drops of this darkness sipping into our world through margins creates by lies and lack of light. When the sun disappeared beyond the mountains, terrible things gazed at you from the abyss, waiting for a moment when the veil thinned enough to allow them to drag you screaming into the endless night. There was no light without shadow, no good without evil. Even your own shadow was your enemy. A man must valiantly walk the path of light and truth, to be ever vigilant and honest lest the dark things crept into the world and all was undone. Lies didn't just threaten the fabric of society, they threatened the very fabric of the cosmos. And if you let all the fires die in the night, you would never see the light again...

I'm sure there's a game in there somewhere.

I enter the classroom and a pencil swooshes a few inches from my face.
Me: Hey! Are you trying to kill me?
Kid: Um... yes.
Me: Well, you're not very good at it.
Kid: This is a school. We come here to learn...

Okay, a less contentious question: Which is the coolest century in history?

The heart of Islam is conquest and submission. The heart of Judaism is isolation and anxiety. What is the heart of Christianity?

The Booth at the End is one of the most addictive and original shows I've seen in years. The premise is as simple as it's brilliant: there's a man in a diner who can tell you what you need to do to make your wish come true. Sometimes the missions are innocent "protect a child for five weeks," sometimes they are horrific "kill 22 people in front of witnesses" and sometimes they are unclear "mark 3 people." The whole series takes place in the eponymous diner and progresses through very evocative dialogues and great acting.
So basically, it's a show about people who come to a powerful and mysterious being to ask for quests and the whole affair is played out through words and acting, with the majority of action taking place in our imagination. In case this isn't clear yet, "The Booth in the End" was created by a gamer (one of the writers of Shadowrun). If ever there was a show that demonstrated the power of pure storytelling, this is it.
However, this is hardly a geek only story. Instead, think David Lynch meets Twilight Zone.

Really great stuff!
