I can hear the sound as I watch this and it makes me want to scream.
It IS screaming, can’t you hear it?! Its unbearable wailing!?
Once in 2008, I was using my dads old (97) laptop to write a paper. I didn’t have anyway to send it to a printer other than maybe putting it on a floppy disk. I decided I would plug in the ethernet cable and try to email it to myself. Of corse the only Internet browser was AOL. This screen started up and started dialing. It started ringing and someone answered! It dialed someone’s number! MY COMPUTER CALLED SOMEONE AND THEY SAID HELLO!
