#yeah basically what wepon said #(the part of me that tried to read Neuromancer too young and bounced off of it #is glad to know that it actually *is* possible for the sky to look like that) #(*googling* …wait are you telling me he *meant* static?) #(my whole adulthood I’ve figured he must have been thinking of one of the other ways dead channels can look) #((given that blue and black would both be much easier for a sky to pull off)) #which ~11-year-old me in her inexperience was unaware of) #birds #fun with loopholes #overly literal interpretations #just-literal-enough interpretations
