Imagine,Just Imagine! Articles just for a minute that the real world started operating
like the Internet does.

First, we'd have a choice of two brands of everything. Instead of
dozens or even hundreds as we do now. Want soup, it's either brand
A. or brand B. Need a new car, again, A. or B. (feel free to
substitute IE for brand A. and N for brand B.)

Sure sounds like things would be simpler, and if things went as they
should, both A. and B. brands would be doing everything in their
power to make their product/services better and less expensive then
the other guy. WOW! Can you imagine, a gas war over everything. (For
those readers who have never experienced a gas war, it was when 1
gas station dropped it's price to 40 cents per gallon which was 2
cents less than the station across the street. The station across
the street then went to 38 cents. This went on until we were buying
gas for 20 cents per gallon)

Some other very interesting side effects would also occur.

1. If you received a phone call you hadn't requested, you could
notify the phone spam police and they would disconnect the offending
callers telephone.

2. If you opened your snail mail box to find anything addressed to
occupant you would be entitled to $50.00 per piece of offending mail
to be paid by your postal delivery person.

3. If your electric utility company decided they weren't making
enough money or they just got tired of being, your utility company,
they could, without warning, close there doors and shut off all
their customers leaving them totally in the dark, and without

4. There would be people on every street corner giving away just
about anything you can name, homes, cars, groceries, medical
insurance, swimming pools, and on and on and on. Of course, if you
want to live in the house you'll need to purchase the "Pro Version"
that actually includes the lot to put it on. If you really want to
enjoy living in that house you might consider the "Super Pro
Package" that includes your choice of 12 different furniture
packages. And then there's the Mega Super Pro Package that will
locate your house, your lot and the furnishings outside, of Siberia.

How about that great sounding health insurance that guy in the clown
suit is hollering about, it really sounds like something we could
use. Well, it sounded good until I needed to use it for something
besides ingrown toe nail surgery. After I got the above the neck
plugin, the below the neck upgrade and the respiratory package I was
paying $100 a month more for my "free insurance" than I was for the
insurance I had to buy.

Yup, just Imagine!
