I voted for 'Perception of reality'.
Several times had happened to me that, while I was reading some computer paper (!) magazine, I would automatically try to click on some printed URI with my finger :-)
Urghh..

    That is the coolest thing I've heard all day.

      Really? Then that is the saddest thing I've heard all day.

    Every once in a while I stand around, totally confused. Because I can't find my keys (for example) and can't figure out why I can't grep for my keys.

    When I first got a mouse in 1991 or thereabouts I instinctively tried to put out a candle in my room by dragging the mouse off the screen. Took me a second or so to realize it wasn't going to work.

    (That thing was cool, logitech 3 button bus mouse, came with it's own programming language and TSR you could use to give any dos program mouse support by turning movements/buttons/chords into key strokes and you could even program your own text pop up select windows for more macros. I think the thing came with a 300 page manual. Can you imagine a mouse coming with that now?)
      I had such a Logitech mouse too. Today, I have a (tv-style) remote control that does the same!
