I-dosing

Videos of teenagers trying digital drugs are all over YouTube, leaving parents, educators and law enforcement officials with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs concerned.

Again, not satire.

    This evokes one of the central plot points of the original Matrix movie. In the opening scenes–before we know that Mr. Anderson’s reality isn’t really reality–Neo is a dealer for this sort of product. That is, he is selling fabricated worlds from within a fabricated world. It was one of the most interesting plot points to me and really wasn’t explored in any depth.

    “I heard it was like some weird demons and stuff through an iPod and he was like freaking out.”

    That’s what I heard.
