Episode 248: Modern Technology

First | Previous Episode Index Next | Latest

Hail friends,

Every now and then (seemingly once a year), new advancements in technology appear on our shores to our doorsteps. The Gods decree and we (the hypnotized masses) rejoice! And with each new advancements come shortcomings, hardships, and bugs that need to be tinkered with. For example: A particular piece of technology may have an intended use by design but ultimately... may fall short of those intentions.

With four new fangled Crystal Portals now secure in my tower (one for each floor), I look to my house steps and take advantage of the shiney new mailboxes that we've been bestowed. I finally toss out the antiquated red & blue Barter Town event chests and replace them with a new fangled mailbox designed for ease, comfort, and security. With it I now have a proper container which finds the right balance between form and function.

*skips outside and checks for mail*

*squints eyes*

(You son of a bitch.)

::Two Days Pass::

Sure, set-backs are to be expected with fancy new wha-cha-ma-thingies and how-do-we-wuts-its. Not only are these set-backs anticipated, but they are embraced, noted, and built upon for the next iteration of similar design. For example: With these new mailboxes, the act of impersonating a would-be sender would actually be quite easy to accomplish. If one were to leave dog poop in a mailbox, one would never really know who sent it. The home owner would open the box -- and to his horror -- would have already taken a big wiff before identifying the unwanted item.

(The real Enkil Visigoth would never do that to me.)


*notices the flag on the mailbox is up*

*skips outside and checks for mail*

"I do have mail!"

*cracks open book*

These are very troubling times. These are times when impersonators impersonating a thief's best good friends are surrounding him constantly. Times when a thief can't open a mailbox without finding poop or advertisements for the latest breakthroughs in penis enlargement.

(Modern technology, indeed.)

'Til next time!
