Prove thou art not a robot

Here’s a theological puzzler for you: will our software, data and gadgets pass along with our souls to the next world?

I’m especially concerned about password utilities. It can be awkward if your admission to the kingdom of heaven is riding on your defence of a tweet that looks pretty awful, except you know there’s a little context that could explain why it’s actually really funny — if only you could log into your Evernote notebooks to refresh your memory.

So, 1Password, get on that. It could be the feature that lets you survive the Mavericks upgrade.

(Alex suggested this cartoon. And as luck would have it, she’s also the person who got me using 1Password, a program that saves my fanny on a regular basis. If you need to juggle passwords for a number of accounts and websites, 1Password may save yours too. Check them out.)


I’m surprised at how few souls going to heaven are casually dressed. Do you ascend in the clothes you were wearing when you died, that you wore most often during life, or that you wore to your funeral? Or do you get to pick something from off the racks where the line starts?

I’m going to run with “You appear dressed in the clothing closest to your self-image.”

But if it’s “what you were wearing at the moment of death,” I figure there’d be a lot of hospital gowns and a certain amount of nudity.

And if it’s “what you wore most often during life,” then PJs probably win. Eight hours a night, an hour or so on either side, plus in my case, all that blogging time.
