War Games Quote

"A strange game. The only winning move is not to play."


- Joshua, War Games




If you've never seen the movie War Games, then I suggest you dig through a discount department store DVD bin and try to find it.  While it's rather dated from a technology perspective (it takes place in 1983, hence cutting edge technology such as dial-up modem is prominently displayed), it's still well worth watching.  


Now for some reason I woke up with this movie, and specifically this quote running through my head. The "game" referenced by Joshua isn't anything philosophical; rather, it's called Global Thermonuclear War (well that and Tic-Tac-Toe...but you have to watch the movie to understand the comparison).  Deeper meaning at work here?  Not especially, although it is 7:14am and I got about 4 hours worth of sleep, so maybe it's just me being overly tired.


Great movie though.
