Those of us who were paying attention at least. I pulled out my Samsung Galaxy S7 and downloaded hentai movies in 1080 resolution so fast that within minutes I had enough to last me a lifetime.

An emergency alert went out not long after, to every cell phone in the country.

"We've uploaded all the dogs to the cloud. They will never age, they will never die. Forever they will look over us mortals from the heavens with pity. May god have mercy on our souls."

I realized at that moment the $69,000 I had recently invested into my new dog manicure business was doomed.
