”9 “I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. 10 When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. 11 I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow! 12 This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. 13 There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me. 16 You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. 17 This is my command: Love each other.”
Happy Valentines Day.
This was once brought up in a screenwriting class I took before, and the question began to built up into what could be a good movie idea. Consider this a brain fart, and if you happen to be a screenwriter and get millions from this idea (though I doubt it), I and the Rutgers screenwriting class of spring 2010 would probably appreciate credit to atleast some degree…
So the premise first established was this: There is a world-renowned heart surgeon, who’s wife leaves him. He questions all the times she said that she loved him, and eventually invents a machine that measures the heart whenever an individual says “I love you” and determines what the person is really saying. For instance, it could read “I love your money” or “I want protection”, etc, etc. The person didn’t offer any story after establishing the premise.
A lot could definitely happen from this point on. He would obviously begin an epic journey looking for “true love”. Maybe he’ll find it, maybe he won’t. Maybe he’ll give up on using the machine, realizing human love will always be conditional, and give the “I love you”s the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he’ll finally find the true “I love you” he was looking for, but it was from his ex-wife to him - so she did in fact love him genuinely… plot twist.
My question to anyone that might read this is this: if you had the chance to own such a machine, would you want to have it/use it?
Just finished editing a video for friend David Toth of JKToth Productions. The video is a summary of a Band Wars event combined with the Premiere of his film in Utica, New York. It was a fun, long weekend with lots of snow, but the bands were cool and the reception of the film - well watch for yourself… :D
So basically, nothing is more appealing to a gamer than the disapproval of his mother lol.
If this theory is true, then maybe reverse psychology would work…. Mothers, tell your children you love the game they’re playing - then they’ll stop. xD

8 When the king of Aram was at war with Israel, he would confer with his officers and say, “We will mobilize our forces at such and such a place.”
9 But immediately Elisha, the man of God, would warn the king of Israel, “Do not go near that place, for the Arameans are planning to mobilize their troops there.” 10 So the king of Israel would send word to the place indicated by the man of God. Time and again Elisha warned the king, so that he would be on the alert there.
11 The king of Aram became very upset over this. He called his officers together and demanded, “Which of you is the traitor? Who has been informing the king of Israel of my plans?”
12 “It’s not us, my lord the king,” one of the officers replied. “Elisha, the prophet in Israel, tells the king of Israel even the words you speak in the privacy of your bedroom!”
13 “Go and find out where he is,” the king commanded, “so I can send troops to seize him.”
And the report came back: “Elisha is at Dothan.” 14 So one night the king of Aram sent a great army with many chariots and horses to surround the city.
15 When the servant of the man of God got up early the next morning and went outside, there were troops, horses, and chariots everywhere. “Oh, sir, what will we do now?” the young man cried to Elisha.
16 “Don’t be afraid!” Elisha told him. “For there are more on our side than on theirs!” 17 Then Elisha prayed, “O Lord, open his eyes and let him see!” The Lord opened the young man’s eyes, and when he looked up, he saw that the hillside around Elisha was filled with horses and chariots of fire.
18 As the Aramean army advanced toward him, Elisha prayed, “O Lord, please make them blind.” So the Lord struck them with blindness as Elisha had asked.
19 Then Elisha went out and told them, “You have come the wrong way! This isn’t the right city! Follow me, and I will take you to the man you are looking for.” And he led them to the city of Samaria.
20 As soon as they had entered Samaria, Elisha prayed, “O Lord, now open their eyes and let them see.” So the Lord opened their eyes, and they discovered that they were in the middle of Samaria.
21 When the king of Israel saw them, he shouted to Elisha, “My father, should I kill them? Should I kill them?”
22 “Of course not!” Elisha replied. “Do we kill prisoners of war? Give them food and drink and send them home again to their master.”
23 So the king made a great feast for them and then sent them home to their master. After that, the Aramean raiders stayed away from the land of Israel.

The hottest place in the world and the coldest place in the world, to decide once and for all whether I prefer the winter or the summer.
