Amongst all the stuff humans created in their short story on Earth, this particular object was the crucial mark on our history, the one that drove things to completely different shores.
Yes, something as simple as the light bulb (courtesy of Mr. Thomas Edison), the inauguration of an era where electricity is EVERYTHING. I don’t want to sound harsh but it truly means EVERYTHING! (lol now it sounds funny but I wouldn’t be typing this without electricity, and without it: no TV, no radio, no lamps, no nothing mainly… back to the sone age) Indeed, don’t you feel the silence when there is a blackout. Practically everything around us requires a power source, hence, my tribute to this very beginning, irony included. That lightbulb died yesterday, but now shone again thanks to that king of the skies known as the Sun. It might also be a premonition of what might happen at the current rate of resources consumption… Dozens of useless lightbulbs.
Yay for taking common stuff and twist it into something weird! =)
