* A cyborg criminal decides to move to an undeveloped country where he won’t have to deal with high-tech police. Unfortunately, he can’t find anything he wants to steal…
* After years of cybernetics being used only to replace missing limbs, doctors begin to develop cybernetic parts for able-bodied humans. Never lost an arm? Why not get an extra one, anyway? How about a pair of optical sensors to assist your biological eyes? Or maybe you’d like a pair of shiny, metal wings?
* After the development of cybernetic limbs come cybernetic criminals. The government is forced to hire cybernetic police officers to fight them. Soon the criminals and police are in a cybernetic arms race. (No pun intended.)
* After decades of advancement in the field of cybernetic medicine, Congress passes a bill called “The Forty Percent Rule.” Anyone less than forty percent flesh is no longer considered a human being. As their rights are stripped away, the metal Americans search for a way to prove their humanity.
* The latest cybernetic limbs must be connected to the internet to download driver updates and the latest operating software. Unfortunately, even metal limbs can be infected with viruses…

* You have the ability to quite literally cry a river of tears. More than a river, actually – a sea large enough to drown the earth. You keep your emotions in check for decades, trying to avoid catastrophe… until, the person you love most in the world dies.
* Your emotions are directly connected to the weather that your small village will experience. If you are happy, it’s comfortable, warm, and sunny; if you’re sad, it will rain; if you’re angry is can cause thunderstorms or a burning heat that causes fires. You are not aware of this fact, but your entire village is and will manipulate you in order to feel the emotions they need to survive.
* “Please, Edward,” said Carlisle. “For God’s sake, you’re ruining it for the rest of us.” He squinted up at the brilliant blue sky, the balmy breezes wafting through the trees, and winced. “You had that whole Byronic hero mystique going, that – that dark and broody – that overcast demeanor that drew her to you in the first place! Please,” he said, and clasped his hands together. “None of us have been able to go out in public during daytime for weeks! Do you know how much school your siblings have been missing?”
* “Shan’t,” said Edward manfully. He tilted up his chiseled chin, the sunlight rippling off his flawless skin in waves of diamantine sparkles. “This is love, Carlisle. The very sight of her stirs emotions in me that I had long thought lost, inaccessible. I would do anything to bring her joy, to see her glorious face blossom into spring -!”
* “You’re ruining it for the rest of us!” shrieked Carlisle. “It’s just been sunshine, sunshine, sunshine for weeks! An unseasonable heatwave! Even for the humans! The crops are dying! Well, maybe not the crops,” he said, and kicked a patch of dried grass, “but you must see that this is rapidly going to become unlivable!”
* A computer company develops a MMORPG that requires people to plug their brains directly into a computer to play. The more brains that connect to the game system, the smarter the game’s AI enemies become. Eventually, the AI realizes that it can only survive as long as everyone keeps playing.
* A toy company develops a new line of super-lifelike baby dolls. At first, the dolls just cry when their “mommies” leave them alone. They gradually become more and more demanding, eventually forcing entire families to care for them.
* A computer that controls a stoplight in a small town becomes drunk with power.
* “How can I deny her nature, that the clouds should part and that the sun should shine down upon our happiness -”
* “I’m not saying break up with her! You can have your love! I’m just saying, a little, um, tempestuousness in the relationship. A little changeability.” Carlisle pressed a hand to his heart, painting pictures in the air with the other. “You must remember what your relationship was like when it began. That stormy, unrequited yearning, the tumult that you both weathered in discovering your own hearts -”
* “Oh, I remember, all right,” Edward said sullenly, crossing his arms. “I wasn’t getting any then.”
* “Oh, for -!” Carlisle started to say, before the sound of a twig snapping interrupted him.
* “What are you two…?” Bella came crashing clumsily through the branches. A tiny furrow formed on her smooth brow as she crossed the clearing, and for a moment a shadow moved across the sun, the day becoming overcast. Carlisle darted his eyes up hopefully, head twitching. “Were – were you two talking about me?” she said.
* In an instant Edward had crossed to her, not even treading on the grass, and pressed her to his marble breast. “Only to say that I could never bear to be apart from you.” He looked down at her with his soulful eyes. “That I would seek to obtain for you any happiness, regardless the cost.” Bella’s lips turned up in a smile, the clouds parting, a breeze carrying a fragment of bird song by, as a ray of sun shone through the clouds to bathe them both in a dappled spotlight that painted Edward in a glittering dew.
* “Oh for God’s sake!” said Carlisle. “You don’t see it? You don’t -?” He gestured furiously at the sunbeam, his motions growing progressively wilder until he was practically flailing at the sky. “Have you genuinely not already figured this out?!”
* “Carlisle…” Edward said warningly.
* “F-figured out what?” Bella said, and a chill wind blew crosswise along the grass, sending an involuntary shiver up her spine.
* “All this!” yelled Carlisle. “The pathetic fallacy! The – the – the clouds, the sky, nature itself conforming to your oh-so-important feelings! That egocentric conception of the world where the only reason the sun is shining down is because of your happiness!” The sky grew darker as he spoke, the wind picking up and whipping at his hair. “There! You see? It’s getting stormy now because you’re being yelled at! Because that’s what drives the world, sure, a teenage girl’s emotions! It couldn’t be, oh, a complex system of high and low pressure zones and – and wind patterns and all these factors that meteorologists make a study of deciphering! No! You lived in Arizona and you were happy and so everything was bright and sunny! And then when your mother made you move, of course Forks was gloomy and overcast! Of course!” He was screaming over the howling of the wind, his coat flapping wildly. “It’s all about you! Everything’s always about you!”
* I know that you’ve been told several times to go somewhere else in order to change your environment and meet new people whenever you find yourself in a challenging situation. Different people have told me this several times. Such advice can be infuriating. Instead of receiving some kind of assistance or even compassion, someone has the audacity to tell you, ‘you should travel.’ Nonetheless, this is one of the most valuable pieces of advice you can receive from someone.
* One thing to note is that you cannot leave everything behind and go tour the world. We all have our duties, responsibilities, and other kinds of ties that will bind you to that one place. Nevertheless, whenever you are told to travel, it does not necessarily mean something like going to Thailand for instance, living in a certain village and adopting their ways of life, or whatever else comes to the minds of individuals whenever they think about traveling. Indeed, small, frequent travels can bring about positive effects on your mental condition, and will enhance your capability to deal with challenges.
* A big segment of our everyday problems remains in the context in which the problems first occurred, and therefore, you dwell on them regularly. Whenever you’re stressed, your thoughts tend to be negative. Therefore, you’ll be viewing your life situation from a pessimistic viewpoint, assuming the worst case scenarios, etc. Nonetheless, when you fly or to another country or even drive to another state, you feel your troubles disappear gradually. Getting yourself out of the environment that reminds you of your problems can be therapeutic. I’m not implying that escaping your problems is the easiest way to feeling better. What I mean is that taking a break can provide you with a new outlook, or at least distract your mind for a while.
* Whenever you travel, you learn to live in the moment. You might feel the moment as you view the wildebeest migration in the Maasai Mara, or you might also feel the moment when you go visit the Statue of Liberty. Every new experience is like an entry to the present moment. Who knows, this moment is what will assist you to recover from all the stress.
* Furthermore, whenever you’re traveling, you’ll have to learn to improvise and adapt to new situations. For example, your belongings might be stolen, or you’ll be in a situation where the plan of your trip does not work since you were not aware of the challenges you would face in a new country or state. Any new travel is a fresh set of circumstances and situations, and thus you need to adapt. Eventually, you’ll get to acquire new skills – adaptation and improvisation.
* To conclude, traveling will not take away your pain, for instance, if you have lost a loved one, declared bankrupt, among other reasons. Your problems won’t be magically dissolved. When you come back home, they’ll still be there. However, traveling will teach you that you’re not alone. Many people worldwide suffer and rejoice the same way you do. It will also teach you that these people also face problems, and they struggle and overcome them, just like you. You’ll learn to enjoy the beauty of moments. You’ll become more adaptive and flexible. You’ll also learn to improvise. All these will assist you to recover from your mental wounds and do away with stress. According to me, it’s worth the time.
* Todd takes Anette back to the demon realm, holding her tight against him as he travels across the bleak and forebidding landscape; such a sharp contrast to the rosy warmth of Anette’s home. Eventually, in a far corner of his home plane, Todd finds what he is looking for. It is a place where other demons do not tread; a large boulder cracked and broken, with a gap just barely large enough for Todd to fit through. This crack, of all things, gives him pause, but Anette’s soul makes a comment about needing to get home in time to feed Honey, and Todd forces himself to pass through it. He travels in darkness for a while, before he emerges into into a light so bright that it’s blinding. His eyes adjust slowly, and he finds himself face to face with two creatures, each of them at least twice his size one of them has six wings and the head of a lion, one of them is an amorphous creature within several rings. The lion-headed one snarls at Todd, and demands that he turn back, that he has no business here.
* Todd looks down, holding Anette’s soul against his chest, he takes a deep breath, and speaks a single word, “Please.”
* The two larger beings are taken aback by this. They are too used to Todd’s kind being belligerent, they consult with each other, they argue. The amorphous one seems to want to be lenient, the lion-headed one insists on being stricter. While they’re arguing Todd sneaks by them and runs as fast as he can, deeper into the brightly lit expanse. The path on which he travels begins to slope upwards, and eventually becomes a staircase. It becomes evident that each step further up the stair is more and more difficult for Todd, that it’s physically paining him to climb these stairs, but he keeps going.
* They dedicate a full episode to this climb; interspersing the climb with scenes they weren’t able to show in previous seasons, Anette and Honey coming to visit Todd in the Mayor’s office, Anette and Todd playing bingo together for the first time, Anette and Todd watching their stories together in the mid afternoon, Anette falling asleep in her chair and Todd gently carrying her to bed. Anette making Todd lemonade in the summer while he’s up on the roof fixing that leak and cleaning out the rain gutters. Eventually Todd reaches the top, and all but collapses, he falls to a knee and for the first time his grip on Anette’s soul slips, and she falls away from him. Landing on the ground.
* He reaches out for her, but someone gets there first. Another hand reaches out, and helps this elderly woman off the ground, helps her get to her feet. Anette gasps, it’s Charles. The pair of them throw their arms around each other. Anette tells Charles that she’s missed him so much, and she has so much to tell him. Charles nods. Todd watches a soft smile on his face. A delicate hand touches Todd’s shoulder, and pulls him easily to his feet. A figure; we never see exactly what it looks like, leans down, whispering in Todd’s ear that he’s done well, and that Anette will be well taken care of here. That she will spend an eternity with her loved ones. Todd looks back over to her, she’s surrounded by a sea of people. Todd nods, and smiles. The figure behind him tells him that while he has done good in bringing Anette here, this is not his place, and he must leave. Todd nods, he knew this would be the case.

* Todd gets about six steps down the stairway before he is stopped by someone grabbing his shoulder again. He turns around, and Anette is standing behind him. She gives him a big hug and leads him back up the stairs, he should stay, she says. Get to know the family. Todd tries to tell her that he can’t stay, but she won’t hear it. She leads him up into the crowd of people and begins introducing him to long dead relatives of hers, all of whom give him skeptical looks when she introduces him as her grandson.
* The mysterious figure appears next to Todd again and tells him once more he must leave, Todd opens his mouth to answer but Anette cuts him off. Nonsense, she tells the figure. IF she’s gonna stay here forever her grandson will be welcome to visit her. She and the figure stare at each other for a moment. The figure eventually sighs and looks away, the figure asks Todd if she’s always like this. Todd just shrugs and smiles, allowing Anette to lead him through a pair of pearly gates, she’s already talking about how much cake they’ll need to feed all of these relatives.

For years you’ve lived your life guided by your own daily reminder, never straying away from the path you’d laid out for yourself, but now your at a loss. It’s been exactly three days since you last received a message…
