I want to be a brain in a vat
My body frustrates me... It needs sleep, care, relaxation, food, etc... There are so many things I want to do - stories to write, code to create - I feel like I never get as much done as I want to. I get into mental grooves when I'm pumping out code, or whatever, and then I run into a wall because my body fries before my brain. Mentally I want to still be working on the Perl, and then I want to switch to working on the Rolodex... I want to write the fics I never get around to working on... Hell I want to watch more films, listen to more music... Sleep is such a waste of time. Really.

Then there is death - another problem of the flesh. Being dead doesn't bug me - I'm *dead*. But it bothers me to think that no matter when I die, I'm sure there will be things I never got around to completing/doing, and that irritates the hell out of me.

Blah, I'm really fucking morose tonight.

(On the upside, I think Sumi Das may be the sexiest woman on TV - and she's super smart and a geek... *sigh*)

I've always thought...

It would be nice to get transplanted into a Bu-33S (male verison, ya pervs!) No artificially short lifespan, get to leap out of second story windows and hit the concrete running, all the good bits of your anatomy still work right, etc. As soon as full-conversion cyborg is practical, I'm out of this flesh annoyance.

Of course, even if you were a brain in a vat you might still need sleep. Your brain needs sleep too.
