*****WATTYS 2015 WINNER!*****


In the end, the robots win. 

But you already knew that.

"Everyone Died + My iPhone Stopped Working" is a collection of short interviews with some of the survivors. People who have tremendous insight into the rise of Artificially Intelligent machines or, more often, don't.

Why did the robots rise up? What did they want? Why couldn't they be stopped? Can they be stopped now? Is humanity doomed? And what the f--k is going on with the squirrels?

You will get the answers to all of these questions. Or some of these questions. Or none of these questions. We'll see.

I will be updating this once a week until I run out of stuff that I find funny. Then I'm done.

To those in 2018—this is set in the very near future instead of the past and/or the present. If the author chooses to change the date when the time rolls around, then it's all good. (:
