I'm sorry, but dedicating yourself to the prevention of future possible
badness sounds like the plot for the terminator movies. But, I'm afraid
the chances of uber machines destroying the world is far far smaller than
the chances of you just being off your medication. If you're going to
speak for something I'm interested in, please try to not sound crazy, I'd
really appreciate it. Honestly, you're going around telling people they've
got a planet kill on their record.
