Did Someone Just Hack My Thermometer? (standard:humor, 904 words)

I do not like to complain (except on certain occasions when nobody is listening) but I am not too happy with the weather these days. I have never felt so cold before.
 



I do not like to complain (except on certain occasions when nobody is
listening) but I am not too happy with the weather these days. I have 
never felt so cold before. 

Is it true that the older you get, the less cold temperature you can
stand? 

If it is not true, it sure is true with me. The older I get, the colder
I get and there is absolutely nothing I can do about it. After all, how 
many sweaters can you wear at one time? 

The other day as I looked at my thermometer I saw it had dipped below my
meteorological expectation. I tried breathing on the thermometer to see 
if I could get the temperature to rise a little bit. And, because I 
have such hot breath, I was able to raise the temperature quite a bit, 
but as soon as I stop breathing, it plunged back to its depth. 

It seems that when I look at the thermometer and the temperature is low
I feel cold. On the other hand, when the temperature is high, I feel 
warm. I almost said hot, but the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage 
corrected me on that once. I may feel hot, but, according to her, I 
sure do not look hot and the mirror in my bathroom collaborates with 
her opinion. 

So, I am wondering if the temperature has anything to do with my
thermometer. If someone, perchance, could manipulate my thermometer 
they could manipulate whether I am hot or cold. 

Then a thought hit me square in the face. 

All during last year, I heard how the Russians allegedly hacked into
emails. I never really paid that much attention to the stories, but 
now, I am thinking a little bit different about that. 

Anybody who wants to can hack into my emails because I have such a
boring life that they probably would shoot themselves. However, what if 
they were able to hack into my thermometer? That is the $64,000 
question! 

I confess that I am not very savvy when it comes to technology. I can
barely manage my emails; so, when it comes to technology I am as 
vulnerable as anybody else. 

I am certainly not afraid of somebody hacking into my banking account
because they would find it completely empty. Thinking about that, maybe 
somebody is hacking into my banking account and taking out all my 
money. If somebody is, I do not imagine it is I. Maybe I should have a 
talk with my banker just to see if anything fishy is going on. 

A couple of weeks ago when my wife wanted to use her bank credit card it
was declined. She contacted her bank and found out someone did hack 
into her account and bought something for $2500 out on the West Coast. 

What bothered me was, I did not know she had that much money in her
account. Maybe I ought to look into what it takes to hack into 
somebody's banking account! 

Anyway, the bank took care of it and she was not on the hook for that
money. 

This only proves if anybody wants to hack into somebody's bank account,
they would pick her over me for certain. 

However, what if these Russians, or whoever they are, are able to hack
into my thermometer? What if they are able to hack in and manipulate my 
thermometer to make it look colder than it really is? 

If this is true, where do I go to report it? 

What sorry soul would do something like this? 

This has been worrying me for over a week now and I am as chilly today
as I was when I first started worrying about this. Why can't they hack 
into my thermometer and raise the temperature so that I feel warmer?
