In an allegorical satire of sci-fi stories that worry about how technology will change society as well as nostalgia stories that fret about how technology has changed society: A man gains immortality, perfect health, and the ability to fly from a procedure that also involves cutting off his big toe. Rather than be happy for him, all his friends and acquaintances keep urging him to "think of what you've lost"

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well. No sooner do we deem ourselves free from a particularly gross superstition, than we are confronted by some enemy to learning who would plunge us back into the darkness -H.P.Lovecraft

He who fights with monsters must take care lest he thereby become a monster -Nietzsche

A found footage film about a guy who is obsessed with filming himself / observing himself. Nothing supernatural happens; he just gets increasingly disturbingly obsessed with filming himself. Twist ending: everyone else in the world is dead, and he's convinced that if he isn't observed, he will cease to exist.

James Bond as a honeypot-type agent -- he's not physically or mentally capable of normal counterintelligence work, but he successfully seduces, distracts, and thereby extracts information out of enemy agents of all genders.

There is a demon who will trade you fabulous things in exchange for your happiness. The twist is that the fabulous things DO NOT backfire in an ironic way. Instead the loss of happiness manifests as a sort of undifferentiated self-referential buyer's remorse

A couple is the target of a GPS conspiracy by which people are given directions to dead-ends and locations where they are then targetted by rob-assassins. One of the couple appears to die in the incident, and the other makes it their mission to destroy what he uncovers to be Operation GPDeath only to find that the conspiracy was a fake-out as his lover is still alive and faked the conspiracy because she had just found out she was with child and wanted the baby to be a secret as it was not her lovers, but an angels.

While she could have had the baby and just said it was his, which would be undeniable as her lover is far too prideful to deny that a child with the face of an angel was his own, she had the suspicion that the baby would have angelic superpowers due to it being half-angel. As she knew her lover would not approve of her using his child in a cloning experiment but would also not approve of her admitting the child which was not his, she created Operation GPDeath to hide the baby's existence and successfully keep both her lover and the ability to clone her half-angel child.

“Brain Watch”: An alternate history story based on the pilot episode of Widget The World Watcher.

Instead of landing safely in the sea cave, Widget crashes in the Nevada desert and the military covered up the situation. After recovering the wreckage, they’ve successfully reversed engineered the Brain Unit they’ve found (although it was malfunctioning in the first place). Years later, the technology was demilitarized as a new mobile virtual assistant to the population (as the stand-in for Apple Watches in our irl world). The bulk of the story is about the slice of life tribulations of the human users and their Brain Watches.

In a surprising development, eugenics turns on itself by concluding it's own tenants were actually the greatest example feeble-mindedness ever encountered. Ex-proponents are survived by their Darwin Award trophies.
