"What is the difference between a realist and a dreamer? The realist thinks that someday a UFO will come down and hover over the UN building, and that the aliens will come out of the UFO and offer to share their technology and solve all our world's problems.

The dreamer thinks maybe we can get our act together and do it ourselves."

Russian joke [It's a joke?] cited in William K. Hartmann, A Traveler's Guide to Mars.

This reminds me of the highly amusing concept in David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest where one of his characters, a filmmaker, begins making "reality" films in which the art is that there is no artistry in the portrayal.
He picks his subjects at random and then asks to film them. The next step in his "art" is to just pick the person's name out of the phone book. The end. Because filming them changed their nature. So not filming them is the true art film.
I probably didnt explain this well. I understand the concept of your post but I probably cant explain that either :)

Girl, if you understand that post, please explain it to me. Really.

(I like the "reality filming" concept. Not sure I'd spend time watching the movie. ;-}
