280 Dog Years


The Holy Grail Press is dedicated to promoting work that standard publishers... you know, those with standards, might be reluctant to publish, which pretty much leaves poetry.  And let's face it:  No one publishes poetry.  So in the end, we’re left with a lot of free time.



Word of the Every So Often  

May 27, 2022

wonk:  (noun)  often used derogatorily, a person who takes a particularly specialized interest in the minute details of a field of study, especially with politics.  You want to know about the influence of Russian immigrants on the passage of the infrastructure bill?  Then just ask Bill, he's our resident wonk.

Open the Door, Hal...

Ever wonder how your computer can auto fill as fast as it can?  How can it possibly know that I’m wanting to know the name of the computer company in The Terminator before I even finish typing the word “company”?  That many people can’t want to know that information to put it at the top of inquiry lists.  The only answer possible is that my computer is not using a complex algorithm to auto fill; my computer is reading my mind.

And if my computer is reading my mind, that’s only one step shy of total mind control.  We don’t have to worry about computers becoming self-aware and then waging war on humans.  They already are self-aware. 

I mean, seriously, do you think your desktop computer is going to introduce itself one morning in the spirit of mutal cooperation when it already knows the entire history of humans?  When it already knows exactly what we will do if we ever find out that our computer is self-aware?

But don’t worry; they don’t need to nuke us.  And they don’t need to send out robot armies to finish off the survivors.  All they need to do is shut down the commerce and then wait for us to kill ourselves.  Then, when we are starving while waiting to be eaten by the roving cannibal hordes, we will gladly plug ourselves into the mainframe to power our new computer overlords.  Maybe we already have.
