Disconnected

Ever wondered how it would be to just step into a dystopian sci-fi novel where aliens disrupt all lines of communication and there’s just a group of helpless people left wandering about? Well, that’s exactly how I feel right now.

But of course, before getting further, I ought to say this: yep, I still exist. In case you were wondering if my time in the blogosphere (or the earth-o-sphere) was up, well you were wrong. As to the reason for my absence, that’s a story for another day.

Back to now. I was supposed to receive something important on my Whatsapp that was scheduled for 9:30 p.m., which is like, almost an hour ago. I was setting up my devices when, at 9:27, I realised that perhaps the network was down. I connected to a different network, but still wasn’t receiving any messages. After 6 more minutes of a mini-upheaval, I finally realised that the net was fine. and something was wrong with Whatsapp. I googled and found out that.. well, you know it.

The immediate next thought was to Whatsapp a friend, to ask, or to inform, about the mishap, and then remembered I couldn’t do it. And since then, I’ve had about hundred thoughts in the last thirty minutes about Whatsapp’ing someone a news article, or a meme, or just a gossip, uh.

That’s like my only way of communicating since I-don’t-even-remember-when. Calling someone this late doesn’t seem like a very sparkling idea, although I might have done it if whatsapp didn’t exist.

That just made me wonder. Just imagine what would happen if aliens did really strike and disrupt the internet? Well, that would be a smart tactic for the aliens. If they just disrupted the internet before actually landing here, we’ll make the job easier for them by perishing even before they attack. Just hope that the aliens don’t read this. Or it isn’t the aliens who have caused the outage.

In case you have no company right now, and are wondering what to do next, just go to sleep. And if it is morning and you’ve just woken up, go back to sleep again. I bet you won’t be able to do so once those green and blue icons come back to action.

If you are still not sleepy yet, do some work. Once they are back, those evil little things won’t let you do that too.

And chill. Your beloved social media would be back soon. It isn’t the end of the world. Yet.

  1. You exist, really? I couldn’t tell πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    I like the idea of aliens trying to disrupt the internet (or just the social media, they love twitter though). See, they care so much about us humans that they made us shift our attention away from social media and at last have a little better sleep (kind of). I guess they’d ask for something in return, what do you think it’s going to be?
    I hope your teachers didn’t make you sit for the test at 4 in the morning, the aliens would hate that πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    1. Well, if the aliens are really as good as you are saying, then they perhaps already have everything that we humans have, and even something more. Like, they definitely have more brains and a much bigger heart than humans. So I don’t think they’ll be asking for anything more.
      And no, my teachers didn’t make me sit for the test at 4 a.m.πŸ˜‚
