"The End of the World",...for some.

Today, half of America’s internet shut down when hackers unleashed a large distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack on the servers of Dyn, a major DNS host. It’s still unclear exactly who carried out the attack and why, but regardless, the event served as a demonstration of how easily large swaths of the web can be wiped out if attacked by determined hackers.


Well it's the end of yet another part of the world. The unprotected parts of the Web. Ya know where 99% of those under 30 live?


Not a scratch. I was sleeping. That, and I have nothing irreplaceable on this damned contraption. It's like TV which I don't watch anymore. All TV could be shut down for months,...hell years, and I wouldn't notice.

Same with this Web crap.

Go ahead shut it all down ya maniacs. I'll be reading a book anyway while ya do it. Books are amazing. No batteries or plugins needed no special apps. Ya just pick it up, and read it.

They function perfectly for centuries at a time. Although you have to supply your own candles tea, and cat. Otherwise they work fine.

Stay Tuned.


  1. A hack attack could easily by the opener to a shooting war. Maybe this is a dry run.


  2. I hadn't thought of it that way.

    Yeah if this were a film it would be this way. Opening scenes of navy vessels maneuvering with hostile intent. Jet fighters going to after-burners in the dawn skies...cross shot with images of NATO, and Russian troop movements on the Baltic borders.

    This interspersed with footage of the obliviousness of daily life in the States...shots of the Trump, and Hillary clown show.

    Cut to normal regular kid trying to go on-line in some boring ' dice. Then a kid in the 'Hood then businesses. Multi-scenes of chaos intruding into the mundane.

    Ships bearing down on each other, troops at the borders waiting for go led clock counts down in a bunker, on a kitchen wall in Atlanta Times Square Paris...then on the watches of commuters in Kansas City London Kiev Bonn.
