Bill looked at the computer screen. He double-clicked on the icon anxiously. It was a 32x32 image of a void. He blinked nervously. He had decided to download the program after
realising that he had spent 22.675 years in his dull, dead-end job with nothing to work to or up from. He had seen it mentioned in one of the 7543 blogs he read every day, and it played on his mind. 'Watch this presentation!' it said. 'You will find the truth! You were right after all!'. He had downloaded it after thinking about it for 43.6 minutes. That was 5.354 days ago. As Powerpoint loaded, he realised how sad it was that he had memorised all these numbers to three decimal places. The first page loaded. It was solid black. With some aprehention, he clicked to load the next page. He prepared for his life to have meaning, for a purpose to jump out at him. The letters faded into view. 'Everything is worthless...'
He passed out.
EDIT: Changed 'Rowland' to 'Bill'.
