have talked about when I became a Born-Again Singularitarian, right? That was in 2014— March 2014 to be precise, and directly led to the first 'Yuli Banularity' that May. 
The thing that triggered me being Born-Again was actually just a simple recognition, me becoming self-aware of the current state of sci-tech. I was marveling over the fact I had two robots— a robot fan and a Roomba— and that there were other sorts of robots out there, like ASIMO. In fact, this image burned into my brain back then. Hence why I tend to defend ASIMO so much; like a newborn bird first viewing its mother. It didn't help that ASIMO was having a bit of a world tour circa 2014 (hence why there are so many videos about ASIMO that can be dated to 2014), meaning I had a lot of material to work with.

Last Thursday I was watching football with my dad for a bit and one of the commercials was advertising a VR headset. That did it for me. I said as much at the time.

The South Korean President has been under the control of a Shadow Cabal of 8 oligarchs known as the "Eight Heavenly Fairies", including pseudo-Christian cultists and megacorp CEOs

This cyberpunk-ass headline sounds like it's been ripped from a Shadowrun novel. Consider that this is South Korea we're talking about— possibly the only nation more technophilic than Japan— and you can understand my continued exasperation.

People born before the year 2000. What was you "what the actual fuck" when technology advanced?
