I used to use the computer a lot. I would stay up late just surfing the web, playing games I’d beaten long ago. I guess it became an obsession. It got so bad that I would stay up till midnight just doing nothing. I tried to stop. Sometimes I could manage to go to sleep early, but lately I’ve never been in bed before eleven.

It’s weird, I never feel like this during the day. I can handle not being on the computer in the morning. I get lots of stuff done; cleaning up, studying, pretty much being a productive person.
But now things have gotten worse.

I started feeling really bad after going to sleep. It would hit me while I was on the computer that my eyes were really burning. Only when they started tearing up would my gaze be broken from the screen and realize I hadn’t been blinking. Weirder things started happening when I blinked too.

It started out harmless. Web pages would load real slowly. My mouse would freeze. Programs would start ending randomly. Nothing actually out of the ordinary. I would just refresh the page, reconnect the mouse, and press end now.

But it got worse.

I got on the computer one night to find it was completely shut down. I always suspend the computer when I log off, so this struck me as odd. When it started up again, it entered safe mode. After fiddling with the settings, I finally got it working again. For maybe two weeks things went on without a fuss.
I was browsing a blog, just slowly reading and scrolling down when a picture showed up. It was one of those awful pictures of a dead body, like, someone who had been in a car crash or explosion. It wasn’t a pop-up or anything. It was part of the blog. I was a bit concerned, the blog made no mention of this and had never used pictures before. I scrolled down so the picture was gone, and the blog continued like nothing strange was up.

I stopped going on the blog eventually. More and more gruesome pictures were showing up. I commented on one entry about it and was met with confusion. No one else was complaining. I wrote it off as some in joke to get rid of all the noobs.

Other sites I frequent are taking up this shock picture trick. It’s becoming a real pain. I’m starting to fear clicking on every link.

I closed internet explorer today to find my background had been changed to another horrible photo. I couldn’t help but recognize this one. It was one I saw in drivers’ ed of a particularly gruesome drunk driving incident. After resetting my background, deleting the picture I had apparently saved to my hard drive, cleaning up and defragging my hard drive, I opened the recycling bin to get rid of it once and for all.

I was a bit stunned. My bin was full of all sorts of random things I knew I never saved. There were porn sites, illegal downloads, pictures, e-mails, and other files with extensions I wasn’t familiar with. I cleared them all and decided I get some outside help.

I started looking online for any similar incidents. With no results I called Geek Squad, my Dad, and even brought the computer in to major dealers for a check-up. One large bill later, no problems were detected. Most even commented on how well kept the computer was.

The pictures stopped appearing, but I almost wish they were still the problem. My computer now displays everything almost as it should be. But now, whenever a person is displayed, their eyes are gouged out. It looked like a crappy Paint job at first, but they became more and more real. I tried showing it to a friend, but the computer worked fine when he was around.

I finally let my friend have the computer. He always commented on what a great machine it was when he was over. I’m glad to be done with it. I had just bought a much more updated one and after starting it up, I was very happy to see everything working normally. I decided not transfer all the data from my old computer to the new one.

Happy to be done with it, I close the brand new model. It’s only nine thirty and I turn on the television, knowing that I can get a good night sleep after Futurama. I lay back and turn up the volume to hear the opening theme. I recognize the unique little blurb they have, like what they do with the Simpsons; this is the infamous “dog” episode. I get ready to feel sad when my heart jumps.

Fry’s eyes are missing.

    This reminds me of a time when a cartoon network aired all their episodes with little moustaches drawn on everyone.
    I actually laughed at this Creepypasta.

    cautionary tales ftw.
    i actually like this one, kind of alot, but it’s not exactly what i’d call creepy. stories like this get creepy when characterguy goes off his rocker, which it kind of alludes to happening, but it doesn’t actually show. oh well, still a nice story :]
    my heart smiled when i saw creepy pasta had a new story up though.

    At first, I thought it was going to be a joke pasta. Then the pictures of the dead people came along.

    Eh. The story was completely underwhelming.

    Didn’t we have one really similar to this one? Like with creepy horrible images kept showing up on the computer?

    Either way man this went nowhere. Really boring and the “twist” was incredibly obvious.

    Good pasta, but surely it could have been something other than Futurama?
    Also, I think I’ve been reading too much pasta, when I read “press end now” I pressed end o_o

    uh…..what now?

    Not trying to say the whole “eye” thing isn’t a bit weird, but this pasta seems to lack a definitive punch to the kidneys, if you know what I mean. Basically what I’m getting is that the guy is suffering from some sort of delusion, psychosis, or haunting of some kind that is causing his computer to do strange and gruesome things. These things get worse, and he can find no cause, so he junks the computer. He turns on the tv and a similar event occurs…..

    ….seems like this started out as a good idea, but it feels unfinished. On top of that, for an unfinished pasta, it’s very long. I’m going to say 4/10 on this one.
