I ask myself "Is it easy being clever?", and I stew over that question for hours before finally answering "Maybe, sure." Digital me came up with that brilliant answer as quickly as I just read it, and... yeah... well... cleverness. Something that even I couldn't figure out -- even with all the free time on my hands -- is how people dealt with existence when they didn't have a digital self to live through? I think they just went bat shit insane, and I figured it out.
