Lab Horse: Redux - TheMajorTechie

A filly lives on Earth with a jobless physicist. She's just figuring out life, while he's going broke. She has no idea what she's doing.

Log 4: Hacking the systems... ALL THE SYSTEMS. Actually, we didn't do any hacking but the teacher was showing My Little Pony in class today and--

Author's Note:

Sorry for the long wait. Updates will hopefully become a bit more consistent again! :raritywink:

I scampered alongside Ranell as we made our way down the hall.

"So... what kinda stuff do you wanna do on the school computers, anyway?"

Ranell shrugged. "'Dunno, what do you feel like doing?"

I thought for a moment.

"Maybe... we could see if we could get past the firewall and play some games on them!"

Ranell shook his head. "That's too easy. All we'd need for that is a VPN. How about snooping around to see what other students have in their accounts?"

This time, I shook my head.

"No, sounds too creepy. We might get in trouble too."

"Yeah, I was thinking that too."

"So what's the point of hacking into the school's systems anyway then?" I snorted, "If everything is too easy or might get us in trouble, then we probably shouldn't do it at all!"

Ranell stopped in front of our class's open door. I bumped into the back of his wheelchair with my face.


"What?" I asked, rubbing my muzzle, "Something interesting in class?"

Ranell wheeled himself through the door. I followed behind, being careful not to smoosh my face again.

"Look, Gadget! The teacher's playing your show!"

I peeked out from behind his wheelchair. Sure enough, I saw Twilight Sparkle on-screen, talking about something to Rainbow Dash. I didn't really pay very much attention to the show though. I was reading a book about outer space for most of that time.

I'm still kinda wondering why our teacher was just playing TV shows all day today in class. We watched Sesame Street afterward, too. It's only the third day of school! Aren't we supposed to be doing stuff like introducing ourselves to the class or something? Maybe a beginning-of-school project? C'mon, we're not kindergarteners anymore! We don't need to be plopped down in front of a TV and babysat by-- oh hey, Bill Nye the Science Guy's on!
