Also known as: “I wish I could have taken a screenshot, but windows phones are lame. I will mourn the loss of this image forever.”
(I’m taking a break from writing about China because I like to live dangerously) This weekend I was at a coffee shop waiting to meet a friend. The friend was running late and I was bored, so I decided to explore their WiFi while I waited. It was free, but it required its users to make an account before granting them internet access. The required information was: username, real name, and password. It explicitly stated that users were to enter their REAL name, as opposed to a fake, made up name.
So when I successfully logged in to the network, the screen read, “Welcome, Almighty Cthulhu.”
That’s officially the proudest I have been for this entire week.
