cyberpunk was conceived as the apocalyptic end game of capitalism, a dark, ashen hell of absolute corporate power and death. capitalism, the demon of double-talk, convinced us this was a good idea.

I found an old bottle, washed up on the shore, with a letter inside. It is addressed to "Someone Else".
I have not opened it, of course, as it is not for me. Do you know who it's for?

Illness / alcohol mention 

Necking green tea with honey like I'm downing shots. Determined to fend off whatever goddamn bug is making my throat sore and sniffling

My pal and I are ditching 2 classes so we can spend time in the library studying for a different class. 😂

Uni 

Biology lecture has been hijacked by a careers advisor and I am pissed off.
So am reading a book on my phone. It's literally the 2nd week of uni and she's banging on about our employability and shit.
She also fucking annoys me for some reason.

The demon appeared in the pentagram, studied the lines and glyphs, and smiled. "You made an error. I'm unbound."
The summoner blanched.
"I could torment you," the demon said, "but I won't."
"W- why not?"
"You'll remember this mistake, and torture yourself, the rest of your life."

- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m

90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them

Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m

This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created

University 

Uni hasn't even started properly yet and I'm already exhausted.

Money & finances 

Student loan has come in.

There has been frivolousness.

Alcohol 

I do hope I haven't inadvertently started a family fight after last night's nonsense where I was all melodramatic and drunk. On the other hand, I have issues stemming from childhood so you get what you give, fam.

The village’s intemperate Buddhist is found drowned in cider. Suspicion falls on Stratton-on-the-Fosse’s manager of Midsomer’s largest banana farm, angry that hacked video cameras might threaten to reveal that due to an off-by-one error, the meaning of life is actually 43.

Alcohol 

Tfw the hangover starts to kick in when you're awake because you started drinking too early like a bloody amateur

Family issues 

Mind you, I'm now in a family where the matriarch wrote fucking books about her own life after which at least one of her kids won't fucking talk to her and everything is terrible and I was so happy earlier and drunk but now sad and drunk

An embattled councillor is found crushed under an unreasonably large pile of books. Suspicion falls on Nether Wallop’s society of Venus watchers, angry that crows stealing and moving balls on the 15th hole might threaten to summon the Devil himself.
