I'm 20 minutes into Surrogates, which so far has an interesting story but is so badly directed/edited I can hardly stand it. I watched a trailer for a Chinese movie today that was really funny: Triumph! (shows people cheering) Sadness! (shows people crying) Struggle! (shows preople struggling). This is like that in a very plodding and maudlin way, but a movie, not a trailer. It's like a movie for people who aren't paying attention so every little thing has to be reinforced heavy-handedly. Bludgeoning and soul-deadening.
Maybe it will pick up in a few minutes!
I don't really get why you'd need human scale. That's a lot of junk to build and move around and cycle through after it'd reached the end of its use. If people had pint-sized surrogates then your house and property would instantly be huge. Even at, say, 4 feet tall, all horses would be nice and big, not little things like they are now. Everything would be better :-D
Update: All I can say is, "Dudes, where are your surge suppreessors?"
Further update: Wow, that was really bad.
