My living room is a computer case. I just realized this while I was working at home with earplugs in, due to the noise of various fans and equipment. No, I don't have a heatstroke - hear me out:
- I am the CPU.
- My desk fan is the CPU fan.
- The mechanical ventilation on the roof is the case fan.
- The windows are the ventilation grids.
- The kitchen sink is a water-cooling system.
- The other side of the kitchen (fridge, stove and pantry) is the power-supply unit. (This works better in Dutch.)
- My furniture is the motherboard.
- Cables are cables.
- My books are the hard drive.
- My notebooks are flash drives.
- My computers (desktop, laptop and phone) are RAM.
- The desktop keyboard is the bus.
- The desktop monitor is the GPU. (Don't think too hard about this one.)
- The stuff to be sold or donated on a table in the corner is the unused DVD drive.
It's uncanny how well this fits. I listed almost everything present in this room, besides some tools, games, flowers and clothes. Well, my computer case actually has shoes. I taped 4 pieces of carpet under it to stop it from trembling. And I have an excellent random number generator:
It's just a metaphor. I'm not making a point. On the contrary, this reminds me I should read an article called The Human Brain Is Not A Computer. The world computer tells me it was probably this one.
A long time ago, my desk fan literally was the CPU fan
