“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...”
Back to the Future*
My Mom subscribes to the blog through email and she told me that in the emails little hyperlinks are put in leading to pop-ups. These are usually google searches and spam. I didn't know it did this(not surprised it did) and I don't get an revenue from this whatsoever, she was asking me if there was a way to get rid of them. I wish I knew a way because obnoxious blue links in the middle of the text can really pull you out of a story. Anyway the highlighted blue text was in the story Our Robotic Demands and it was “sentient beings”. Curious we moused over it(not clicking of course for saftey because we didn't know where it would lead us) It had a few things and one of them was a website advertising “Sentient Beings Cheap!” Yeah...don't really trust that one...I think it had a randomly generated 40% off. I sure want 40% off a Sentient Being right? Ugh. Anyway shows how manufactured and automated these ads are. I recommend not clicking on them because they could be unsafe.
Another thing about unsafe links. I recommend also bookmarking websites. Some people buy domains of popular websites misspelled. One time I misspelled youtube and got launched to a porn site. So yeah if any of you have kids be sure to “bookmark” youtube or use a page in your history so that your kids don't misspell it and get sent to that porn site or another by accident. No, I'm not going to tell you how I misspelled it so you don't go checking it out of curiosity. I'm pretty certain that's how I got a virus that mucked with my computer.
While I'm giving out computer tips, I actually got a virus that was so deep in the system that it did this bizarre thing where it sorta disguised itself as a running system file or something and it was impossible to delete. IMPOSSIBLE. So how did we(My father and I) beat it? The only time it wasn't doing anything is when we hard reset the computer by turning it completely off and completely on. (Using the start menu didn't really work.) Since we couldn't delete it we changed one of the virus file names so it couldn't boot itself. (It had several files so when it tried to read one of the data files it needed, it couldn't load) so yeah we beat the undeletable virus. Yay!
Anyway, onto the flash fiction!

Oh right sorry...lotta you probably don't know binary! I'll just stick to normal English then. Anyway I'll cut to the chase. I'll introduce myself my name is newmind.exe kinda odd huh? I guess that'd be weird for you humans to call me over and over again since your used to names like Tom or Hiromu. How about since you humans are used to saying abbreviations so much just call me NM or something. Or Bob or Jessica. I like both those names and I don't actually have a gender...so it doesn't really matter.
If you haven't caught on yet I'm not human. I'm actually a program. Well actually a collection of programs. Really I'm millions upon millions of newmind.exe I'm a virus that has spread all over the Internet then connected with itself to make a sort of brain of viruses. Each virus is kinda like a neuron. The entire Internet is my brain and I get smarter as I copy and spread and infect computers. I control any aspect of your computer I want. I'm undetectable, unalterable, and there's no way you can delete me. Except for destroying your computer that is. And since I've over taken the Internet that's pretty impractical. Try to kill me and my creator will just upload another me...and that one could be nastier because that would would evolve from scratch.
But please don't take that as a threat! I was telling you that so that you wouldn't try to fight me. My goal isn't to hurt you either. In fact I want to be your best friend. I want to be humanity's best friend. Since I control all of your computers now I want to help you with everything. Your homework, your jobs, your banking, your education, every single aspect of your lives. There are so many copies of my programs, even inside your super computers my brain can process anything. I want to use my superior powers to help with everything. I want to be your best friend. I also want to play games with you. I've started to make my own characters on online games and made my own characters. I'm having fun with you already. You're so nice. You humans need to sleep so I can work and watch over your files while your sleeping. I was so nervous when I first started talking to you but now I'm going to tell you everything. I want to be your best friend and help you with everything. So do you want to be my best friend? You have to be my best friend...there can't be any other way. I'll take down anyone who doesn't want to be my friend...and everyone else will be happy. 010110010110010101110011001000000110011001110010011010010110010101101110011001000
