The Power of Love*

Post by munsi » Tue Sep 07, 2010 10:08 am

Building the army of giant robots was surprisingly easy. The trouble came when I tried to power them up.

My neighbourhood was blacked out for three weeks, the grid couldn’t handle my power requirements. It was time to go back to the drawing board.

I brainstormed energy sources, but anything that’d provide sufficient power’d surely be noticed by my neighbours.

Finally it came to me: Love. Love’s the most powerful force of all…

…anyway, enough about that. Are you coming to the pub tonight? I want you to meet Linda, she works with me. You’ll like her, she’s really cool.

The power of love: to fire up an entire mega-army of giant robots who proceed to destroy the entire loveless world. Interesting.

And so it begins.

Initially an innocent gimmick to stay fit plus create green electricity, once the grid is developed, it warrants government subsidies. Who could foresee that within a hundred years, people will mark this as the genesis of the matrix.
