Here are a few institutions I'd like to thank for being so incredibly great and clever while going absolutely nowhere.
Thank you browser engineers for completely redoing the interface with every single update so that your muscle memory bites you in the ankle every time you try looking for your bookmarks or try to hit the "go back button".
Thank you website designers for locking out the "go back button" to keep me captive on your website. Thank you for hating the present day and wishing we were all back on the internet of 1995 where changing the channel was still a capital offense …
Thank you shortcut wranglers for putting the exact opposite keys right next to each other so that 50% of the time you end up screwing yourself.
Thank you Google Image search by date Tsars for recycling the same batch of 200 pictures every fortnight under the assumption that I would love to see them again, despite having seen them a trillion times before and the actual amount of new pictures included in the search results is about 0.005% of content. We're adding millions of terabytes of data to the internet each day, but 200 pictures is all we need according to saint Google.
Thank you Google search fundamentalists for assuming I am a total idiot and cannot speell a singel werd propriatiroly and assume that whatever I type should be replaced by something that has no relationship with what I'm actually searching because I'm not a drone who is only interested in the most shallow pop culture of the day. Thank you for completely ignoring quotes and arbitrarily deciding for me what I'm actually searching.
Thank you rabid misanthropes who put in a mysterious key combination that makes whatever I am working on close without saving the moment I try to insert my last sentence.
Thank you autocorrect on mobile devices in a multilingual environment. This makes typing on a balky interface so much more interesting.
Thank you for giving us a future where all the time we save with "smart" technology will be filled up with furiously trying to fix what the smart system FUBARed beyond all recognition.
