Remember the time...
Back in the day, 1942. We used to have these slow moving telecommunication systems that would pin point another user of this fine technological break through. It usually took 9 hours to send a message even as short as LOL! Well these were crazy times and we also had to deal with this military presence, the jihad. Those silly wonkas thought it would be funny to disrupt our communications right when a message was being sent so it would take twice if not longer to send. Thanks to Hitler's UFO presence we made clear that we did not like what they were doing.
Now, we can communicate with the power of two tiberium power cells!!! Boy was it hard back then. You new beings have no idea.
