Ramen: A 100 Word Story of The Near Future (VIDEO)

Like the monk in a fable appreciating a flower's beauty as he hangs from the edge of a cliff, I cook my last pack of Ramen savoring each steaming mouthful with rapt attention. Not full attention. Obviously.

I don't know why I'm even bothering to write this down. No one's going to ever read this pitiful story. The new three strike policy got me banned from the Net for good. I'm dead in the virtual. And unless I can figure out a way to make some offline credits, I'm going to be dead in meatspace as well before too long.

Very SnowCrash! Well done. As I read the comments all over the internet of people self righteously proclaiming. "If you have something to hide, you must be a criminal", I think of all the lessons of history that prove that statement to be absolutely false.
