Seven Days and Counting » Mayan Computer Repair

We see what we expect to see – or what our knowledge and experience prepares us to see. In the above stone tablet, I see an ancient meso-american struggling to carry his broken computer to the local geek to have it repaired. The images on the screen reveal he was using Word and it’s crashed with some kind of virus. You can clearly make out Clippy the Paperclip on the computer screen, but he is no longer offering helpful advice.

(I have know idea if this image is from a legitimate carving or if it’s a mockup someone did as a laugh.)
