When someone pointed out this hardship hack on Twitter, everyone got on board to add some fire to the joke
And the trolls started pouring in
Young people just couldn’t wrap their heads around it
The artist believes that this case isn’t really about a clash between generations, but rather it shows the gap of knowledge. “Of course, back in the day, one had to invest a lot of time to get a computer to work or just to connect to the internet. There is all this weird old technology which is hard to get a grasp on today,” he explained. “Yes, you had to clean your mouse ball once in a while, it was always dirty and dusty.” In this sense, the prank does really sound a lot like truth.
Social media is so prominent and fast today that all the seemingly nonsensical ideas spread real fast. “All you need is a good picture and a good story.” Aram gave us an example: “I have one for you. Back in the day, the computer’s CPU was cooled with coffee! All you had to do was place your cup on the CPU and start up the computer. Always hot coffee!”
But everyone kept on trolling like there’s no tomorrow
After all these comments, youngsters were left baffled by whether it’s all a meme or not
