Isn't there a scene in Brave New World like this?

If they are all listening to the same classical music, why do they need headphones? Seems like more trouble than it's worth.

Silly ... you can't have passers-by hearing the *actual* programming ... I am an alpha. I love being an alpha. I will make the lives of gammas a living hell every chance I get. I love Microsoft.

Wagner for babies....they'd be wanting their first gun at age 3. I approve.

The first thought I had was that someone needs to photoshop little tiny 9 mils into their cute pudgy little hands.....

All uniformly tied down in the bottom right corner so they don't strangle on cords I guess.
BigV Wednesday Jul 6 03:21 PM
Second, seriously, are you just toying with us gammas (or omegas or deltas)? Just exactly how are you familiar with the programming? Are you a lapsed alpha? Gone off the reservation? Slumming? (probably). Maybe one of your customers let it slip in a moment of weakness.

The epsilons listen to Britney Spears and Celine Dion.

But they look so sweet, and all are quiet.

They are listening to the Bureaux of Propaganda by Synthetic Voice.

Maybe spending some time with their mommies instead of in the nursery all alone with a HUGE pair of headphones wuold do 'em some good. Sheesh. They make blood pressure cuffs for preemies, you think they could come up with some smaller 'phones.

Here's an interesting statistic... Headphones make your ear canals warmer, darker, and moister. After one hour wearing headphones, the bacteria in your ears has multiplied 600 times.

They probably had crates of these headphones lying around from their final failed five year plan.
The kids are all getting iPods off ebay, so the monster headphones (I swear I had a pair of those in high school that I got from radio shack) were available cheap.
Consider ... you're dealing with the same kind of cultural logic that lead to the spread of HIV in Eastern Block countries ... If you have a ward of babies (or adults) that all need the same med, you load one syringe and shoot the whole ward. Also, cold sterilizing of disposables (think dunking in alcohol) was not uncommon practice.
The proletariat are an expendable resource.

They all seem to be in sync like they were choreographed. The one on the far left looks like a waterhead to me.
chrisinhouston Thursday Jul 7 10:39 AM
Seems like it would be more appropriate for them to listen to the compositions of Bela Bartok!

Jolly good. Lets get some good capitalist fervor going, shall we?

I prefer the term "Petite bourgeoisie".

cool song - "...The Queen of the Ry-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-yche!!!!"

I don't get what the big deal is. I listen to music *now* to help me adapt to life after birth. Not immediately after birth, but still...

All I can say is that the picture would make a great album cover.
