the y2k bug has six legs and eats computers
the y2k bug is my friend and it will protect me from the computers
[sneezes] i think i got the y2k bug :(
THE Y2K BUG, OUR LORD AND SAVIOR, WHOSE COMING HAS BEEN DELAYED TO 2038
THE Y2K BUG, WITH SIX LEGS, BORN OF GOLD AND SILICON AND RARE EARTH METALS, WITH A HEART OF LIGHTNING, EATER OF COMPUTERS AND DESTROYER OF CYBERSPACES
THE Y2K BUG, THE DELAYED APOCALYPSE, THE GROWING WORRY OF UNSUSTAINABILITY, THE BET AGAINST INFINITE TIME, THE EATER OF VITAL SYSTEMS, THE SPECTER OF MAINTENANCE, THE EVER-RESOUNDING HOWL OF "GOOD ENOUGH FOR NOW"
ITS GOLDEN JAWS GENTLY LIFT A DATABASE. IT CONSIDERS FOR A MOMENT, THEN BITES RIGHT THROUGH IT
ITS GLASS EYE SOCKETS SEE NOTHING, BUT ITS NEODYNIUM HEART RESONATES TO NEARBY SYSTEMS. IT WILL FIND THEM AND RETURN THINGS TO WHAT IT BELIEVES TO BE THE NATURAL STATE
ASH TO ASH
DUST TO DUST
METAL TO METAL
ELECTRICITY TO GROUND
AT ANY GIVEN TIME A COMPUTER MAY ONLY SURVIVE SEVERAL DECADES WITHOUT MAINTENANCE, DUE TO THE EVER-PRESENT GODLY SPECTER OF THE Y2K BUG
STONE MONUMENTS IN THE DESERT, UNCOMFORTABLE PASSAGEWAYS, OBSIDIAN SPEARS FROM THE GROUND
WITH A SINGLE MESSAGE TO FUTURE GENERATIONS
"ALL WILL FADE
DESIGN WITH FADING IN MIND
ALL HAIL Y2K"
"what is moving will be still
what is gathered will disperse
what is built up will collapse
all of your dreams
they're all fulfilled"
i'm so out of it
