personhood initiative

so, personhood initiatives have failed quite miserably a couple of times now.  i'm pretty grateful for that.  except there is one thing nagging me on this black friday, when we most put things over people.  those hunks of silicon, plastic and magnetic stuff are behaving with more humanity than the humans nowadays.  collectively, they're giving better directions, recommending better music and providing more videos of cats farting than any group of what we currently consider "persons."  it appears someone on the train agrees with me.

not to be outdone, across the aisle, another hunk of metal tries to elevate itself into personhood.  awwww, they're holding hands.

and, of course, who wouldn't treat their bottle of soda as a person?

  1. This is hugely rampant on the commuter rail. Purses, backpacks, occasional shopping bags of day-trippers, you name it.

    The worst part is, you can't ask "can you move your bag so I can sit here?" because if you do, you're a jerk.
