iOS is telling me that London has transcended the idea of time.

    "It is all hours in the new state of londontopiastan. and the clocks are always and forever striking thirteen. All appointments are cancelled. All appointments are fulfilled. All plans denied. All plans permitted. All get together on hold, all get togethers permanent. All activities banned, all participation mandatory. Shelter in place. Continue as usual. Situation critical. Situation nominal. Obey. And have a pleasant stay in london."

    @3rdWorldPoison Maybe I'll write one of those chapter books or a shortstory.

    I'm flattered that it horrifies you. I hope to horrify you and others more in the future.

    What a disquieting sentiment lol.

    @Wisecrack Maybe work on a subtler version of Orwell. I chucked it after I had way too many on-the-nose allegories.

    Would love to have a thought-cookie rather than "culture-shock dystopia" ;)

    @3rdWorldPoison We live in the age of watching bestgore videos on youtube and cartel headchoppings being shared on discord among 15 year olds. Subtly, while beautiful, is dead.

    The few left to appreciate it, like yourself, now huddle in caves and pockets of civilization that they take with them wherever they go, hiding from the mutant overlords searching out the last humans capable of independent thought, like shittier more obvious versions of meatspace terminators.

    @Wisecrack "Meatspace Terminators" might just be the best phrase I've heard this year.

    I can almost imagine a B-movie with Fleshed Terminators being sent back in time to erode the gene pool of humans because they didn't have enough budget for the machine terminators

    Alternatively an indie-metal band with "SUBTLE" anti-capitalist undertones.

    @SortOfTested bojangles doesnt have a monopoly on pseudo-bigotry. Besides the grim dark culture wars of 2027 saw the gays take back the word stan in the trenches and killing fields of silicon valley.
