Off the cuff comic item

I'm watching the latest Totally Rad Show, which is a best of the past year episode, and they mentioned a comic called The Surrogates. Might be of interest to you BCIers out there, since it revolves around the idea of neurally interfacing with robots that go out and live the person's life while the controller remains at home. It brings up interesting topics, like if you 'kill' a surrogate is it murder?

We just saw Surrogates here at TUG. To answer your question: If you kill a Surrogate, is it murder? No. According to the movie, it is "extreme vandalism".

'Course, the movie also said it was set in San Diego, but it wasn't. Said it was about BCIs, but wasn't. Couple big minuses there.
