Ants don't need milk. They're dying now.

Six Feet Under
The show is five seasons long and is basically a snapshot of the lives of a family that owns a funeral home.
Pretty interesting stuff.
As you can imagine, they have to deal with death daily, but it starts to take a toll on their psyche after a while.

I watched the five seasons over a week and, while interesting, it isn't really the best thing ever.
If there's one message in the show, its that everybody dies. No exceptions. Spend your time here well.
People make terrible decisions in their lives, and end up living unhappy lives because they become stuck in it.
The show kinda says that if you're going to have prolonged unhappiness, you should probably do something about it.

Everything is a Conspiracy

We all joke about crazy people and their paranoia sometimes. 9/11 is one of those things.

In this case, he believes that there's an active person somewhere out there dedicating their life to making his life miserable. Every little instance of something on the computer going wrong can be attributed to this person 'hacking' into the computer.

"Why did the computer shut down by iteself?"
"The spyware scanner says that this registry has been changed."
and so on.

Of course, a novice user of the internet will probably get infected with spyware/virus eventually, but to attribute that to a malicious person out there is a little far gone. It's come to the point where the person would refuse to do anything on the Internet.

Person also asked me if there was something I'd like to say... because he thinks I've been compromised by the hacker as well. That the hacker has somehow coerced me to perpetuate the lie. Yeah.

I guess you can say... UP is a downer.

Pixar seems to be able to make no wrong.
First it was Wall-E (Movie of the Millenium)
Now it is UP.

I have to say that the music in the first fifteen minutes of the film, combined with what's happening on the screen, had forced a strong emotional reaction from me. I couldn't stop crying. All the while little kids were screaming and yelling too. It was sweet watching this couple meet and share a dream. It was intensely sad to find that they were unable to fulfill their lifelong dreams due to different circumstances.
