Clippy and I got out of the building just as brilliant orbs started falling gently from the sky. The scene distorted my sense of perspective; they looked like cells - the sort of thing you’d find under a microscope - but the size of a basketball. They appeared almost weightless, drifting down like a snowflake and getting caught in the breeze. They began clumping all over the entire building for the Department of Revenue Storage, almost as if they were slightly magnetic.
Clippy noticed my look of wonder and jumped in with an explanation - “We don’t have police in cyberspace - instead, the cyber-state has created a digital immune system. The display of illuminated wonder you are watching is a bit like algorithmic lymphocytes - they clump on the social disturbance locking everything in place. The cyber-state then mobilizes additional resources to treat the problem.”
Fatigue washed over me; I desperately needed some sleep to help process everything.

Hi! Subconsciously you already know this, but let's make it obvious. Hopefully this article was helpful. You might also find yourself following a link to Amazon to learn more about parts or equipment. If you end up placing an order, I make a couple of dollarydoos. We aren't talking a rapper lifestyle of supercars and yachts, but it does help pay for the stuff you see here. So to everyone that supports this place - thank you.
