God has rebooted the world a total of 17 times. There have been 4 BSODs (Blue Skies of Death). Only 3 species were accidently deleted, though there are several billion empty folders where some species used to reside. There are currently only 3 life forms on planet earth: MS engineers, U.N. workers, and viruses. (there are no bugs.. never have been , never will be.)
The world is slowing down as more data accumulates. Currently it takes about 10 minutes of processing per 1 sec of real-time, but once the algorithms are fully engaged we expect this figure to rise exponentially. Since it is impossible to achieve real-time performance, our engineers are guaranteed lifetime salaries.
On a side note: As a result of these studies, MS now holds the patent on breathing. Pay up MFs!
