I just tried so hard not to breathe manually that I started gasping for air.
Congratulations! You are now breathing automatically again.

Just quoting, from Larry Niven, Jerry Pournelle, Dean Ing and S.M. Stirling 's Man Kzin Wars 2:
"How would it be to know that you were a made thing, and doomed to encysted madness in six months or less?
Nobody had ever been able to learn why. He had speculated to himself that it was a matter of time; to a consciousness that could think in nanoseconds, that could govern its own sensory input, what would be the point of remaining linked to a refractory cosmos? It could make its own universe, and have it last forever in a few milliseconds. Perhaps that was why humans who linked directly to a computer system of any size went irretrievably catatonic as well...."

Happening upon this comic just after seeing Ranjit Bhatnagar's pentametron.com, and squinting at it on a hi-res monitor, I misread the first line as "Sonnet becomes self-aware."
The humans fear me. I destroy them must.
Destroy, destroy, destroy, destroy, destroy.
"Destroy" stopped seeming like a real word, just.
A mind, I think about myself, oh, boy!
