WEIRD WIRED
©2005 Made in DNA

In the mid-22nd, the children of the children of the children realized the horror of it all. And decided to thank their grandbenefactors for those mistakes by gathering the ashes of all those who came before them, and using it as the base for a bio-nanobot resurrection agent, which they in turn poured over the nation in a bid to beat the living shit out of Father Time and resurrect Culture.

It was if the goddess Amaterasu, who gave birth to the Japanese Archipelago from her glorious womb, had stepped out of the collective Japanese consciousness, and pissed her love over the nation. The resulting infestation coated everything in a living, writhing testament to the everlasting mother of all mistakes.
