1 Moral Choice on Fri Jan 13, 2012 2:08 pm


This seems vaguely familiar. Short science fiction story/Twilight Zone sketch/basis for a movie that came out a year or two ago?

Now the question remains: Who dies? And... What will those fame and fortune make of Pip himself?

Yep, you are right. A good movie too.

Good old Pip!

Ok, I am gonna have to call this out:

What the hell is with Art's eyebrows in the last panel? His expression makes him look like he is glaring, but his eyebrows have not moved to match his expression.

It's freaking me out, man.

Well we don't get to speculate what the button exactly does anymore, but this still makes me laugh. In a morbid kind of way.

I remember seeing ads for that film that had the same premise. The concept just gives me the willies. Probably because of all the questions it makes you ask.
Who's going to die? Is the button real? Is it just a toy meant to test you? If you pressed the button and someone in the world happened to drop dead right afterwards, is it really because you pushed it? Does that make you a murderer? What if it is real? How will they die? Did they have a family to provide for?

I believe in the film you were assured that person that died would be someone you didn't know, but no such promise here. So let's hope that Kat and the Squirrel Girls are okay.

Maybe its faulty. Or probably it is just a joke item. At least that is what I hope it is one of the two.

Nah, it's a trap. It worked, it just didn't do what the documentation said it would do. The question is, have any countries vanished in a bright, hot white flash recently? Twisted Evil

"I even held it down" ... why do I have to think about a long, suffering death of someone now ...

Or, worse, it's a digital device so, as long as THE BUTTON is depressed, it's sending activation signals every processor cycle (several million per second). I did wonder where the population of several medium-sized countries had gone... Shocked
