The Internet Thingy

We sat at Great Grandma’s feet as she told us again about when she was a little girl and all the houses had something called electricity. 

“It was wonderful,” she said, “At a flick of a switch we could light all our rooms and heat them. We’d watch TV and cook meals in our microwaves. Such happy times.”

I  tried not to yawn but I knew what was coming next, it was always the same. She’d go on for ages about strange machines called computers and some Internet thingy. 

I often wonder where Great Grandma gets these weird stories from.

      1. Indeedy, so… solar flares do have a propensity for inducing EMP (electo-magnetic pulse) similiar to what happens after a nuke… They’ll also mess with tides, jet stream, possibly even temperatures… would have to do some more research on them, methinks.


I look forward to reading your comments
