Sea Of Tranquillity

Nokia have signed a deal with NASA to set up a mobile phone network on the moon…

********************************************************************************

“HELLO!? …. yeah … I’m on the moon… yeah, I’m in the shuttle bus from the base to our hut…so, any craic? … nah, me neither, there’s no atmosphere here, ha, ha…..so…………..so no news?….nah, me neither… no, wait, listen, Sarah’s breaking up with Dave…yeah, Sarah from PrePay and Dave from Sim-free, yeah, apparently Dave’s been doing the dirt with Kate from Lying About What Counts As Unlimited Data…. no, nobody knows that yet… what, yeah, there are, but they’re not listening, all staring at their phones like morons… so, anyway – oh wait, I’m gonna lose signal…………………………….. HELLO!?… yeah, we went round the dark side of the moon….. you’re right, it’s mad, they can put a man on the moon, you’d think they could organize decent phone reception, like, they’re sending out signals trying to contact aliens, and they’re, like, miles away, I mean, what are they going to think of us when we keep breaking up and there’s an echo all through the call? They’ll block us, that’s what they’ll do….anyway, I’m at my stop now, so I’ll let you go… yep, home in a minute, love, put the kettle on… yeah, bye, byebyebyebyebye…bye.

      Was this conversation perhaps overheard on the rosslare evening train? Back in the day when people still commuted.
