Is it...wrong...that I would love to see an episode of Mr.Pickles starring David Berkowitz as a guest voice?

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

It occurs to me that one could make a killing in the philosophy game by taking a bunch of existing books on philosophy and running them through a markov chain program. So much of philosophy seems to be people randomly stringing words together and hoping they sound intelligent anyway that the process of writing books in the field could probably be reliably automated through this process

EDIT:
Another idea:

Running on python, NodeBox (httpx://nodebox.net/code/index.php/About) has a Kant Generator built in (used to). Just open it and run. Code can be moded to change rules, and there's an XLM file (I think) from which to draw sentences. Probably just as intelligible as Kant.

The sentient magic sword that decides the chosen hero is, in fact, lecherous, jealous, shallow, and possessive, and chooses heros based on who it thinks is hot. The hero is the only one with a telepathic connection to this sword, and the sword controls his or her destiny.

A game where the protagonist inherits a memex from a distant relative & must navigate the complex structure of interlinked footnotes, shopping lists, and marginal scrawl in order to discover who & why. This being a memex, the primary means of editing is taking screenshots of gameplay and then feeding those screenshots into the machine.

two related idead:

*folkloric Slavic boogeyman Koschei the deathless (who is basically the archetype for things like liches and Lord Voldemort; he's a creature who cannot be permanently killed bexause he has hidden his soul away in a secret box somewhere) has been the true identity of every Russian leader for the past 400 years. Every time a new leader has come to power they have been a revived version of the same leader who just died (or was ousted). All the Tsars, and Stalin, and Putin, and so forth have all been the same person.

*another idea involving Koschei, but this time instead of Putin-Stalin he's a boss in the Russian mafia and is at the center of a combination of Big Trouble in Little China and the Pulp Fiction fan theory where the briefcase contains Marsellus' soul
