Chip Monks

PHOTO PROMPT © Björn Rudberg

How uncomplicated would life be if all we have to do is to follow signs that control our actions.  No time spent in making decisions; instead you get extra time that you can spend with friends or family.  

More time to pursue leisure activities, take up those hobbies that you have always wanted to.

Eliminate danger from your life.  No more hiking up perilous mountain roads by yourself, our stop signs instantly flash before your eyes.

All this when you install our Decisive Ultimate Microchip Broadcast ™ (DUMB), based on our patented nano technology, in your brain.

This is a light hearted take on the prompt, but you would be very surprised to find out how many conspiracy theories exist about human implants for mind control.

This is another two for one week, You can read my other entry here -> Yudhishthira's Companion





I'd love read what you think about this post...

    1. Absolutely no side effect. You've got to trust the company, they say they are ethical ;-0

  3. Ha ha ha, I'm sure the technology will have many takers, at least the same number as those who believe in the conspiracy theory.
