drunken scripting

a little piece of software which will run programs, open webpages, and play mp3s at random, just like it had been going shot for shot with Gary Busey. not at all a useful thing, more like a game with no rules or a virus that you would give to your computer illiterate friends, or for you to run yourself when you are drunk (to make sure you are on the same level with your system). possible add-ons: options to set how much your computer has had and what variety of alcohol it has been indulging in: the wine setting makes it open french webpages and play mellow music; the beer setting brings up playboy online and plays Jock-Jams, the tequila setting plays loud latin music for a few minutes before crashing the operating system for the night.

       What about a sort of SimIllness software where your computer could act as though it had various annoying but not too serious illnesses (colds, cough, 24 intestinal flu, etc.). I would also like to see the original idea with a "morning-after" module that functions at half speed, cringes if you hit the keyboard too hard or too quickly, dims all the color settings, and tries to figure out where the lampshade wallpaper came from.

       Doesn't any MS-based machine do this already?

       Another wicked little add-on: have it send annoying, incomprehensible emails to your friends and coworkers at 4 AM.   

       Or, allow you to enable this feature on the computers of your enemies.
