I think I got hit by an EMP
EMP= electro-magnetic pulse. Capable of wiping out all electronically transmitted everything. As explained by me.
I think I broke the internet today. Or maybe I got hit by an
Let me explain.
I went to the store today for some fun summer clothes. At the check out my card couldn't be read. At all. I tried a different card. Nothing. I left (a little embarrassed) and went to an ATM. "Account cannot be accessed at this time." Huh?
Got in my car. Suddenly it won't start.
I grab my phone to twitter/call/facebook/vent to the world. It won't work.
Suddenly the car does work.
I drive up the road, go to another ATM. It doesn't work period. Can't even put my card in.
Got home, and suddenly couldn't access my email account.
I screamed and ate some ice cream, and everything was okay. Phone worked, bank worked, email worked.
Obviously, I was just walking around in my own extra powerful magnetic force today. I call it the Erin Magnetic Pulse.
