Challenge #7, the Judgement

The challenge has been cast. The gauntlet thrown down. Many have been called, few have answered. On the planet Hacknor... On Fire Island D, brave contestants will compete. Who will falter? Who will thrive? Who will be







Before I tell you who's geting the boot, I just wanted to mention how proud I am of everyone who made it this far. We are halfway through Last Gladiator Standing II and the competition is turning out to be as strong and powerful as a Valdorian river anaconda.




Of course, one of you will not be involved in the next round of this stiff competition.




Who couldn't stand up to the challenge?




Synth-Lin, you are not the Last gladiator Standing, goodbye.

If you ask me, I think it's because you're a synthetic humanoid. Personally, I've got nothing against artificial intelligence and yet you have to admit that it must be kind of creepy to have her on your team, right? It's called the Uncanny Valley. Look it up.


Last Gladiator Standing II was brought to you in part by Snake on a Plane.






Snake on a Plane is a thrilling Chilling Roller Coaster of a ride.


Snake on a Plane in theaters now!

Oh well these things happen.

Its all part of playing the game.

Gee I hope Nightwing hasn't hooked up with someone. I gave him a raincheck six months ago. I wonder if he's up for it.

Who am I kidding of course he is.

Love you all

Lin.

Lin's humility in defeat is only a facade.

Acceptance is the first step in the grieving process and I'm not there.

Not even close.

Sore looser. Yeah I'm there alright. Didn't see it coming. Not liking this one bit.

Felt saying all this through Lin would have been out of character. But still felt I needed to say it. So I'm posting this.

I'm not happy. But I only have myself to blame.

Thats where I am.

Great now what am I going to do with my week.

I will miss you!

You never need to miss Lin.

Her blog is an ongoing concern of mine. Mainly because she's so much more popular than Koma. Or even my blog and the nice little mystery that I wrote last year.

Hey Jon I did look up Uncanny Valley. At first I'd say Lin fits at the higher end of the spectrum, cause she moves walks and talks like a real human. Of course the fact that she's a copy of a living human does put her further down into the valley though.

It is a very interesting concept. Now Asimov didn't mention the Uncanny Valley, did he?

NooOOocoooOOO! Not Lin! Anyone but Lin. Why'd it have to be Lin??

I voted for Charles.

corbiscide said...

WTF - you voted for Chuck?

Than that means Henchy voted for Lin.

Wow!

That's a slap in the face. Gee I voted for you Bennet.
