It feels like this comic has creepy-pasta potential.

Really liked this comic. But, to be fair, this is basically just the distilled essence of Inception, right?

Inception? Not quite.

Very reminiscent of Phillip K. Dick stories, though. Science fiction is always best when it's full of mindfuckery!

This was definitely one of my favorite, and also one of the saddest, comics I've read here in a long time. Enough so that I created a forum account just to post this.

Stupid chip can't even simulate blood splatter. She must've gotten a Chinese knockoff happiness chip.

Nice and creepy. But yeah for a moment it seemed that the happiness chip was malfunctioning - thanks for the hidden comic - phew.

Maybe more like Vanilla Sky, but at least in this comic the woman knows exactly what's going on, since in theory she decided on the chip's implantation whilst still 'alive' whereas Tom Cruise learns the 'details' of his dream from within it, and since he has no external confirmation of the details provided by his 'tech support', he is unable to determine whether or not the 'I died but was cryogenically preserved" story is true. Until he wakes up.

I was just reading Fans!, and moping about the oncoming end of that series, so I came here for some lighthearted, possibly sadistic fun.

You cruel, cruel bastard.

Had never heard of this movie but just got done watching it. Very nice. Any other mind bending movie suggestions?

It's a great feeling to know that I've helped someone achieve 2 hours, 4 minutes, and 19 seconds of joy--if only they would last a lifetime where blood didn't get on your son.

Besides the previously mentioned 'Inception' (which I personally found quite stale) there are--stop me if you've heard these--Memento, Primer (A bit TOO mind bendy; see http://xkcd.com/657/large/ ), Repo Man (it may not seem mind bendy at first), The 13th Floor, The Game, The Jacket (not too bendy, but a nice movie), The Prestige, Cypher, and some classics like Fight Club, Usual Suspects, Sixth Sense, The Butterfly Effect, and who knows how many I forgot.

Ugh, if the mods would confirm my account, I could have edited my last post. Anyway, here are some more I remembered:

The Illusionist, 12 Monkeys, Being John Malkovich, Identity. Honorable mentions: Lucky Number Slevin, Donnie Darko.
