Is it possible that the Rise of the Machines has already started? Perhaps their war is being waged on a slightly more secretive front. Taking down random individuals, instilling an overall feeling of discontent. Maybe we are now in Phase One of the grand Judgment Day master plan.
After all, if Skynet really was that good, and could end the Machines back in time, maybe one of them was a projector, it saw the movies and thus changed their entire strategy.
It may sound far fetched, but, after today, it is the only logical explanation that I can come up with.
I moved to Holland 5 years ago, and in that time I have had 4 cars, 2 laptops, 3 desktops, 2 fryers, 4 vacuum cleaners, 3 DVD players, 3 digital camera’s about 5 mobile phones, not including 2 mobiles from my work, 1 laptop that was brand new 4 months ago and has broken three times already.
All of these items of electrical equipment (apart from the cars) were brand new when purchased and on average survived less than a year.
I know, I should have gone back with the warranty, but I am in a financial position whereby I cannot afford the additional cover that would have been needed.
Besides, when you are fighting a war with futuristic machines I don’t think a warranty would cause much trouble.
Is it possible that certain people have an effect on machines? I mean even when I was younger, when I went on Holiday to Canada – a yearly occurrence for 6 years during my teens – every time I tried to buy something, the register broke. Only me, if my Grandparents paid, nothing. The same with my current PC, my wife can use it all day, no problems. I turn it on, open Hotmail and it crashes.
Even my computer at work seems to have a problem with me. Every Monday, when I have to turn on my machine, I have to restart it three times at a minimum before my Outlook will open. Nobody else has it, and I even had the IT team… yes, the whole team, check it out, and they cannot find anything that explains it.
Damn you Machines!!!!
