2050: Cloud computing took over the world ... until someone let the clouds out!

Testing the first time machine, Sam went back a hundred years. Well, what d'you know? he thought. Everything really was in black and white!

"Mist!" Joe said.
Hank rolled his eyes.
"Should've aimed better."

  3. The first one made me laugh, Dom.
    Re second one - I thought it was a black and white photo until I realized the area they're standing on is beige.

  21. LOL Love the "black and white" one. My son (now 28) actually asked me once (when he was 4) if everything in the world was in black and white when I was a little kid and how old was I before it all turned to color? :)

  22. Being a BIG fan of the Black-and-White (Thank you ahead of time for having a look-see at my this week's microfiction intro, in order to catch my drift.), your "Everything really was in black and white!" truly resonates well with me! Thanks!
