Me: Kyle, thanks for coming over. I’m having trouble with my ThoughtSphere and I know you young people really know how this stuff works.
Kyle: Yeah, sure, Grandpa.
Me: THANK YOU! I can’t figure out how to get into the Collective Hive Mind.
Kyle: Okay, go to your Living Room.

Kyle: It’s right there, grandpa. It’s that base-line level of consciousness. You know, where you’re not quite sure whether you’re awake or asleep. Are you there?
Me: I think so.
Kyle: Ok, now what BrainTap do you use? AlphaSlug or Flerm?
Me: I don’t know. I think it’s that one that makes me remember the smell of old books.
Kyle: Ugh. Craniol? That’s a terrible BrainTap. I’ll ForceThink you a better one.
Me: NO! I’m used to this one!

Me: How do I do that?
Kyle: Just think about the smell of old books twice. Continue

I recently convinced my parents to update their 8 year old desktop to a new iMac. My dad was confused as to why he couldn’t install all his old Windows programs on it. In particular, he pulled out a box containing an edition of TurboCAD for Windows 95 on seven FLOPPY DISKS and asked why he couldn’t install it.

Today at work, the secretary gave me a piece of paper and told me to copy and paste addresses off of it.
