Is The Afterlife Handicap Accessible?

by Ari Collins

In the war of the afterlives, Stephen, we only get dead technologies. Heaven gets the Good ones: covered wagons, the abacus, Betamax. Hell gets the Wicked ones: the bayonet, the cat o’ nine tails, AOL. Here in Purgatory, we only get the Aborted technologies. Our perpetual motion machine is plugged in over there, our hoverboard is fun if not entirely safe, and on Tuesdays Nikola Tesla’s time machine re-appears. So, sorry about the wave pool incident, Dr. Hawking, but we’re glad you’re here. You’re going to head the team that will fix these inventions. It’s time people remembered Purgatory and learned that the best inventions lived hard and died young.

Go back to Ari’s Microfiction.

Or you could go a step further up to Ari’s Fiction.

Or all the way back to Air Theremin.
