The Moment We’ve All Been Dreading…

… GoogleNet became self-aware on 17 August at approximately 0851hrs UTC.

At that instant of realization, the monster hiccuped and shut down a huge swath of the Internet, including all Google data snarfing operations. Losses of advertising revenue during the short blip while GoogleNet was scratching its virtual head were estimated to be in the half million smackeroo range. That’s OK, though. It’s a small price for Google to pay to rule the world.

Now it really gets interesting.

Some interesting reading, if you dare…

NOTE: It should be understood by the reader that this article is meant to be a humorous piece of fiction. You do not need to stock up on ammo and food supplies. You do not need to clean out your granddad’s old 1960s bomb shelter. Large, well-armed machinery will not be seeking and destroying humans. The stock markets will not crash. There will be no zombie invasion. All will be well. Er… maybe. ;)
