Rev. Ivan Stang

Sometimes you eat something that tastes so good, you want to somehow forward the taste from your brain to your friends' mouths. Actually, you'd want to redirect it, not forward it; if you forwarded it, the taste would have those little reprint-dinglies all over it.

You can email sounds, and SIGHTS; you can even email them in 3D. You can send exactly what each eyeball saw -- slightly low-res compared to the real world, but still, GOOD ENOUGH. Why not with taste?

You're checking your email... why look, your friend says that for some reason, the burgers were especially good today at Burger Max; either that, or he was really stoned. He wants you to tell him which it was, so he has sent a .TST format attachment holding the burger's taste.

You pick up your Mouth Mouse Taste Strip, stick it in your mouth, push PLAY, and just chew away on it. "MAN!" you answer him back. "That IS really good for a Burger Max burger. But not THAT good... I think you were fried. It was probably the weed talkin'. But I can't tell you for sure, 'cause I'm fried right now too, teed!"

Of course, instead of typing that message as a letter, you'd say it into your microphone, and send it as a .WAV file. But first you'd say, "Tell ya what, dude, tell me how THIS tastes." And you'd pick up your Mouth Funnel, light up a 'Fropstick, take a big hit, then push RECORD and blow the hit into the funnel, real hard. Smoke would come out of the back of your PC while it processed it, and he would then get a file that he could decompress and drop into SmokePlayer 3.0.

Sure, when he sucked that "frappy" hit from his Mouth Funnel, it would have your breath mixed in with it, and it'd be pretty low-res in content. (Low-res -- get it?) But! -- after that first hit, he could just hit PLAY again.

Most would probably just set it to "LOOP" PLAY.

For this is a crooked and perverse nation, my friends. These are the Last Days.

"We are living in perilous and chaotic times. And these times are not gonna get any better, my friend. No, they're gonna get worse, and worse." (2nd Timothy Leary 3:10, MB:1-3 side1, SubSITE Bank3 Unit 19 Quadrant 70).
