I am the anti-matter of the Internet

Waaay back in the 1920s and 30s, scientists discovered the existence of anti-particles. An anti-particle is the dark shadow particle of the regular particles we all know and love. These anti-particles have the same mass (which is how you distinquish the 'flavour' of sub-atomic particle--electron, neutron, etc.) but the opposite charge of their workaday counterparts. And when a particle and its anti-particle come into contact, they annihilate each other in a blast of energy.

The anti-particle of an electron is a positron. The anti-particle of hydrogen is antihydrogen. The anti-matter of the Internet is me. When it and I collide, the result is annihilation, accompanied by a loud blast of energy emanating from the vicinity of my mouth. Just in the last 3 days, my computer has been completely frozen by my security software--which, ironically, I use to protect me from the predatory menaces of the Internet that can get into my system and freeze it--my e-mail host is down again (it happens at least once a month), and for some reason I seem to cause time to slow down for Mozilla Firefox, because every Web page takes at least 2 minutes to load, which as we all know is just a hair shy of eternity when you're surfing.

I don't blame my security software, e-mail host, or Mozilla. I know it's just physics--me, coming into contact with the Internet = annihilation. The regular laws of the universe no longer hold. Really, it's a miracle that I'm able to blog at all.

I am the black hole of the internet, hello!

If you want to send me your hotel address, I'll send you some from this week's batch. Gots to take advantage!

Being the anti-matter of the Internet is still better than being the doesn't-matter of the Internet.
