Ask Harry Seldon!
So they're implementing a Solid State Society?
Totally. My Eee PC with the 900Mhz Celeron M (Family 6 Model 13) can't stop won't stop.
For a customer service phone drone, asking someone to turn their ethernet cables around the other way is actually a brilliant tactic. Of course we all know the cables are bidirectional, but most lusers don't have a clue. By asking them them to flip the ends around you're really asking them to reseat the connections at either end, but it's seemingly strange and arcane enough that they'll actually do it, instead of just making some fake noises into the phone and saying "There, I've done it." You might be surprised how many bad connections get fixed by "flipping the ends around."
Have you noticed that the pattern of lightning is quite similar to the pattern of cracks in a stone or fault lines inside Terra? Lightning isn't a sparky thing that shoots across a gap. It's actually more like an earthquake along a fault line. The phenomenon we call lightning is what occurs when regions of magnetelectrospacetime have drifted and contorted apart far enough that they can no longer maintain congruity. The separate regions shift and the gaps between them close up an the speed of light. The sound and light is a result of that magnetoelectrospacetime fault line between the differing regions.
tl;dr: Lightning isn't a thing, it's a manifestation of fractures in reality.
But for every one of us there's 100 or more people who call CS at the drop of a hat 'cause their compooter don't work or their screen won't come on or their Facebook won't come up.
Why do you hate The Free Market?
Why don't you go help, then? Oh right, it's easier to just sit on the sideline and throw bricks at people trying to actually do something.
Is it a Toyota rocket? Be fine.
Even greasy Yoda dolls get a taste for some strange from time to time.
Dogs eat poop.
Eh, probably typed that on a phone.
Fuck all reboots. Make something new.
I'm having grilled pork, fried apples, and a baked potato for dinner.
