LOL that was awesome, thanks !
"Correspondence Cinema" stood out the most...do we actually have that sort of technology now?
Imagine watching a movie and being able to change the turn of events by being involved in that movie as one of the characters...sort of like virtual reality. Niiiiice
I liked "Heating with Radium"
