It was entertaining, if not a little scary.

I was impressed how convinced this guy was that California cold easily whether the storm of having all federal funds and support immediately withdrawn. He claims Jerry Brown has secret been planning for this shit since the first time he was elected.

And he was sure AI will wipe us out, and he was driving about 75 mph in thick traffic on the 405.

I have yet to see Split, but we all agree Unbreakable is his best film, yes?

Yes. And I'm a fervent supporter of The Village, as well.

Cal-Exit (and that plan your Lyft driver outlined) has existed, almost word for word with minor geographical changes appropriate for the time periods, since Aaron Burr's day.

More interesting is his last comment -- the Church of the Singularity. Which is an actual organization, based in Silicon Valley.

I don't know if this is part of the problem, but nobody in L.A. wastes a whole lot of mind power thinking about Trump. They're *all* about Cal-Exit which since I'm reading Civil War story right now, is eerily similar to the succession screaming of the lower south after Lincoln's election. We really have been through all this before. We're just too ignorant of history to know it.

Anyway, our Lyft driver laid out his Cal-Exit prediction (prophecy) that was so mind bogglingly insane, it might actually be genius: California succeeds in tandem with Oregon and Colorado. They convince Washington to go along too and seek assistance from Canada is setting up their new country.  Colorado and California squeeze in Nevada and Utah, and then they make a play for Arizona and New Mexico. Only this guy had all the details worked out, down to tax base and establishing an independent military. (Though it all sounds like we'd end up with a Fort Sumter situation on our hands.)

Then he said none of it really mattered because the robots would overpower us in twenty years anyway.

I played this amazing Holmes based RPG board game while in LA. Will have to but it and bring it up for the next dinner meet.

I never want to watch Prometheus again and it seems the producers of the Alien franchise feel the same so they're wrapping up that story in this little five minute piece.

Unless of course this is just a truncated version of the first half hour of this thing I have to sit thorugh in a few weeks.
