JoeMyGod posted this really cool video, with a voice-over from Agent Smith (the bad computer program in "The Matrix"), that tracks the growth of Wal-Mart across the United States.
The combination is a little bit too perfect and kinda creepy...
To quote Morpheus from the film:
"The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work... when you go to church... when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth."
