Comcast hears your concerns, loyal customer. We have included the usage cap of 300GB for your protection, as our crack research scientists have determined that downloading at gigabit speeds will warp space and time in your vicinity. Sustained downloads of more than 300GB could cause unexpected time travel, catapulting users into the distant future or pulling velociraptors into the present time. We know you don't want that, so we added this feature for your protection.
Overage fees will placate the space-time continuum, allowing for more rapid closure of temporal wormholes. Actually, space-time wanted $20 per 50GB (can you believe the nerve?), but we talked it down to $10. You're welcome.
No, guns are also terrible. In fact, yesterday I watched a pistol walk into an animal shelter and kick puppies for 45 minutes, accompanied by a black forestock grip. It only ended when a federal law entered the room and told the gun it wasn't allowed to be there, at which point the gun promptly apologized and turned itself in to the authorities.
The black forestock grip fled the scene and is still at large.
Soon, every autonomous car rolling off the line will have to make one last stop before leaving the factory. They will be required to take virtual command of the Kobayashi Maru to gauge how they cope with a no-win situation.
The "James Tesla Kirk" models will give the system fits, though...
"I mean, it could be that the great fairyland dragon from the 6th dimension dreamed up the Snowden documents and then gave them to Russia and China."
Well, umm, uhh, we don't want to make conjectures about the fairyland dragon's intentions. All we know is that we leave the offerings of marshmallows and virgins' blood and the stories come to us fully written. I wouldn't know what the fairyland dragon actually did, the government didn't write that bit for us.
Ooh, Worst-Case Scenario, the Home Version, I love this game!! My turn.
What happens when, in case 1 or 2, the cop performing the search is too busy violating his oath and the citizen's rights to notice the bug meteor that is heading their way? His diverted attention allows the meteor to continue unimpeded, and when it strikes the ground it vaporizes 3 million soup kitchen workers and one very unfortunate alpaca named Constance. Sadly, the illegally detained citizen was a super scientist who was seconds from finishing his anti-meteor shield, and had he been able to get to his lab on time we would have been spared this horrible, alpaca-rending fate.
I'll always win this game, because your vision of unreality is too limted.
