The Weekly Update: 11/20/16

I am 100% convinced my old laptop is sentient. The robot uprising is starting, guys. No, but really, here's the deal. When I first got my grandma's old computer hooked up and turned it on to give it a try, my laptop went nuts and started making the worst noises it's ever made, as if it got jealous I was using another computer and threw a tantrum.
