Humans have devolved in the past two centuries. First, with everything so loud all the time, we lost our hearing. To communicate with each other, we came to rely on handheld devices, but the effort overstimulated our thumbs. Since no one could think of a solution, we grew giant thumbs we dragged along the ground until we became too tired to gesture or send text messages to anyone. Someone a while back experimented with "smart" sidewalks made of touch screens, but our feet kept getting in the way. So we stopped walking. We can't hear, we can't communicate. Everything is silent and still. For some unexplained reason, I was immune to these mutations. I am the last person on earth with normal thumbs and ears. I blog into the void.
