I have a story that a small group of students and I made up about Apple and Macintosh. Here it is, and please, leave a comment.
Macintosh creation myth
Once upon a time, in the land of computer hardware and knowledge, on the planet of Macintosh, there was a great explosion. The mainframe of the universe’s computer knowledge had grown to such a size that it could no longer hold all the teraquads of information. The Supreme Being, had appointed Mac to oversee all of the knowledge from the great knowledge tree. Unfortunately, Mac was slowing down, sometimes crashing from information overload. Viruses and two very nasty newcomer hackers plagued him.
Then there came great storms throughout the universe and it engulfed the planet of Macintosh. All of the knowledge was blown and sucked out, into the winds of the dark planets of the hackers, Ibmen and Gates. The fallen angel Gates snickered, as he said to Ibmen, “Let us precede with the downfall of the almighty Mac and the true believers.
that's pretty good!
...then, away in a manger, the IntelMac was born...
I missed the part where the supreme being ate his own children. I like the Miltonian Gates. I can actually picture horns, and maybe even a third eye under those boyish bangs. I'm not sure about "Mac fell into a deep sleep beneath the roots, and all became dark and cold on the planet of Macintosh." When was that? During the Scullian Captivity? Ho hum, but Mac has given up it's colorful ways. No rainbows in the Apple Stores that I've noticed--only the power colors--grays, blacks, and whites, and all so heavenly.
Great writing! Who will star in the movie?
Once upon a time, in Boca Raton, Florida...
Thanks for everyone's input. We really had a fun time writing the story, and to tell the truth, we actually acted it out a little in english class. It was fun, Thanks everyone!
I have to give you credit, Mr. Goodbytes, this sounds quite intriguing, Seems to take cues from greek mythology and the Bible. Truly inventive and likely the result of a late night and massive amounts of caffeene-induced creativity. Quite funny and definitely the brainchild of a hard core mac person.
Kudos, definately WOOT-worthy.
