The world is nothing but a big stream! Of all the conspiracies I've stumbled upon, this one is my favourite. Not only it's the least grim but it also gives us a sense of control we may not have in other artifice tales. My eccentric analogies aside, this comes as no news that our life is now a "green dot" on the internet. In just a matter of a few clicks, we can watch everything that's happening around the globe and in far-away lands (including fiction & reality). From connecting with people to reading books and newspapers to planning a trip, watching movies, studying and more... there's no limit to what we can do online. There are all kinds of services "available" to make our hectic lives easier. Neat, right?
Now, all you need to do is subscribe to one (or tens) of them and let it do all the work. If this sounds like a (subscription) plan, here's a list of 8 such subscription services you won't regret.
