In one hand there’s a red pill, in the other a blue pill. Take the blue pill and life carries on, you go to work, maybe eat a steak — it’s not bad, really. The only catch is living under the suspicion that something’s amiss, and you’ll never know the answer to that nagging question: “What is The Matrix?” That’s a question that can only be answered by taking the red pill. Your life will change forever, your perception of reality will be upended, and life… well, you’ll find out.

So. What’s it going to be? Are you going to sit at home and peck away at your computer, or are you going to do something with your life?
