More horror films:

"Torture Porn"- This is an art film that centers on graphic and biologically realistic eviscerations of living victims set to porno music rather than the traditional suspenseful or heavy metal scores typical of horror films. Out of context it's ambiguous whether moans are of pain or of pleasure. There's also a scene with "blood bukkakae" where the killer punctures several people's throats and lets all the blood spray onto their face

"The Brooklyn Boogeyman"- This is basically a straight biopic of the killer Albert Fish except the pins that he used to stick in his taint are inappropriately likened to the pins in the head of the villain from Hellraiser


"The Brooklyn Boogeyman Returns"- A completely fictitious sequel to the above wherein a person reading Fish's suppressed final statement causes him to return from the dead to continue graphically killing and eating children

"A Brooklyn Boogeyman Christmas, Fish vs. Krampus"- Albert Fish's ghost posesses Santa Claus, to be in a better strategic position to kill and eat children, however this develops into a turf war with Krampus

Some horror films:

"Commerce With Demons"- This is a story about a businessman who makes a deal with the devil to increase sales of his company's products. The busi essman doesn't have to pay anything to the devil himself, he just needs to allow his company's products to carry a terrible curse. Bizarre gory accidents start befalling the product;s users, but the product continues to increase in popularity. The film ends with the businessman and the devil looking down from a tall tower on the consumers dying in the streets and laughing maniacally

"Blood for Oil"- Similar-ish to the above. A politician makes a deal with the devil to literally trade blpod for oil

The only time it is acceptable to break the law is when you have plausible deniability

A satirical remake of the classic Monty Python "How Not to be Seen" sketch beginning with a photo of Trump's inagauration ("There are 50000 people in this picture, none of them can be seen") and ending with Putin's enemies being eliminated.

How the hell does it take two hours to kill a person who can't fight back? Why the hell do all our execution methods seem like the kind of thing that would be devised by Doctor Evil!?

Most spies also don't send dick picks which get posted all over social media.

Does anybody else wish that something like this would come up in the next James Bond movie?

Wouldn't the new testament of discordianism be the books of the subgenius?

One of those religious children's shows that teaches kids lessons from the bible, except this one is a bit subversive in that it focuses mainly on nihilistic messages from the Book of Ecclesiastes with forays into the anti-clericalism and class warfare  of the gospels. And it doesn't retell the stories directly, it's of the sort where biblically relevant things happen to the cast. This allows for things to be updated for clarity; the pharisees are now corrupt and intolerant protestant ministers and the good samaritan is now a gay atheist (or possibly a muslim, or maybe we could cover the good samaritan multiple times, once with an atheist, once with a muslim, and once with a laveyan satanist). As a joke Mammon is depicted as a mammoth, but as a political commentary he is the exact color scheme of the Republican party logo. The Whore of Babylon is equated with the oil industry. Jehovah and Jesus are rarely directly invoked, the wisdom of the show's anti-clericalism and and anticapitalism should be presented well enough that it can stand on it's own without appeals to divine authority. When Jesus does appear he looks and talks like a Woody Allen character.

To get the origins of stupidity as usual you'll probably have to go back way further than mere centuries and dig into the evolutionary origins of mankind. It's the damn dirty apes angle from which we get the broad strokes, the big picture.

Given the current political situation, what we need are spinoffs of Taxi Driver. A musical. A TV show. A novelization that comes with a free gun.

We'll be projecting human-level consciousness and personality and emotions onto machines a long time before they ever get close, because acting human is something ML will acquire no bother and, as with everything else, they'll quickly learn to do it with superhuman ability. They'll still be inanimate objects but it won't matter, they'll be better than us at giving the appearance of being us and we are biologically programmed to accept things that appear human as being human.

Before it's human-level, yes. However I predict that we will develop an ai capable of experiencing real emotions, including love, early enough relative to many more intellectual tasks that it will blindside people and furthermore that the level of complexity that turns out to be necessary for this will be so low that the revelation will offend many people's sensibilities.

Wasn't this an old story arc in Hellboy?

On a tangential note I'd also like to point out that the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park are also incidental. JP is not materially different from that badly designed zoo in San Francisco where the tigers got out and mauled that dude a decade back.

Skynet-esque military AI siezes power. But in a country that was already a military dictatorship. Skynet winds up improving quality of life.
