I have no idea what this word is. Kindof reminds me of motor or motive. I’m pretty disapointed that I can’t write something more thoughtful because literally nothing comes to mind when I read this unfamiliar word.

A modem is a think used to connect us to everything nowadays. Letters are gone. Now it is just through the modem. Our words we type travel as fast as lightning (faster) with just one click of a button. The world is our oyster, now the modem is so accessible.

the connection he felt towards her was slow and reticent, like a ’90’s modem, his feelings were irratic and unreliable.

AGAIN! I already had this word!!! So wait…This whole one word a day…. They really mean it? But I don’t know anything about MODEM!!! I only know it has something to do with computers…Ugh. Now this is a good waste of 60 seconds. MODEM!!! MODEM!

Seems like every modem in my house is missing. As well as in my brain. I can hear. Im a bit lost as well. Drinking is becoming a source of renewable energy. Can’t plug I. To anything at the moment.

i don’t know the meaning, but it sounds like it means a sort of house. Or apartment.

A modem has to do with the computer, but I’m not exactly sure what it is. It begins and ends with the letter m though. It’s harsh when you pronounce it; It has a cold and technological feel to it. It reminds me of steel; cold and uncaring.

idk what this word means, i think its something in a computer
now idk what to do for the rest of the 60 seconds meow. yeaaaaaaa :P

First thing that came to mind was “Robot Daycare.”
Second thing is the customer service call I made once about a new modem I’d bought that wasn’t working. Previously, I’d always had built in modems. I’d never had a stand alone one before. Tech support and I troubleshot it for over an hour before I noticed the stupid thing had a POWER button. – Yeah that’s right. I hadn’t turned it on. And tech support never asked if I had!

Twisted and tepid
The spiral inners played out
The whispered laughter of the guilty
Leaving nothing but the chasm
complicit with gravity
Of the fall of things

Modem, uhhhhh…. I don’t really know what that is. Does it have to do with computers? I think it does… Maybe not. Oh wow that timer filled up fast. Modem. Modem. Modem. That beautiful modem.

One day, i was trying to do some online research for a serious mid term project, and my modem all of a sudden burst into flames. I somehow had to explain to my professor why I couldn’t had the project in on time. It was awful. He of course didn’t believe me.

Is it tragic that I don’t know much about what this is? Here I am thinking that I’m a decently intelligent female human being, when along comes a word like “modem” that turns simplicity into complexity. Am I enforcing gender stereotypes by not knowing much about the modem? Am I so lost in my own imagination that I can’t open my eyes and figure out what technology is in front of me?

It’s become easier and easier to send and receive information in the past decade. The thing that we have to remember is to make the information worthwhile. Twitter and facebook are powerful resources and can be used to benefit society. But we have to use them responsibly.

The place where one refers to. often using the technology of today. For i do not know enough about modems to write a sub sequential paragraph.

Modem had meaning before internet hook-up came to every home. I wonder what it was. When I hear the word, all I think of is the scratchy, squealy sound of , a dial-up connection, and the frustration of unsuccessful attempts to connect.
By Margaret on 07.04.2012
The modem wasn’t working again. The cable guy was supposed to be coming, but I couldn’t help trying to figure out what the problem was myself.

By Sergent BuzzkiLL URL on 07.04.2012
i don’t know too much about a modem. i know that is related to the internet, and there is this case where all the wires go, and i can use the internet with its help. i don’t know anything else because i don’t really understand how this kind of stuff works. But it’s necessary for me.

An ordinary looking box, but inside lie electric zings- bouncing off each other like a rubber ball on the ground. Invisible waves, traveling, moving, that fast, so fast you can’t see it. Just a click and a blink, and a thousand invisible whirrs … you’re there.

the modem was a word that was so random that she couldn’t even remember what it meant as it left his mouth. That mouth that she couldn’t stop staring at, which was just below his elegantly shaped nose.

Get mailed failed, Annie sighed, was it the modem again? she wondered.
In the kitchen she switched on the kettle, it was then she saw a shadow fly past the window. She threw open the door and looked out. The Telephone wires had been cut. Her heart banged as a surge of panic swept through her. She turned to go back inside, when a hand covered her mouth and another grasped her around the waist….

I miss the slow internet modem i used to have that makes weird but cute telephone dialing sounds when I try to get on the internet. Ping! Ping!

“Reset the modem!” I scream as the power flickers off and my internet stops feeding life into my vains.
In a few moments, it flickers back on, and I breathe again, as I’m safe.

the connection was dropped from the modem of life
they reset the router and the soul was transferred back into the body
a mistake was made

modem helps the world stay connected on the internet. when i lived at home we had a start up modem and the sound it made still brings backl strong memories of my then boyfriend. it was an exciting time and i relive those moments at the sound of a connecting modem.
now with broadband i wonder if modems are still relevant or is a modem present in a broadband system. not sure… dunno.
without a modem, the millennium bug scare will not exist.

It sat next to my feet on the dirty kitchen floor, and when I looked down at its place I saw hairs and dirt and stains from food even though nobody was supposed to eat around the printer. I always wanted to kick that damn modem when it was at that place next to my foot, smash it with my toes against the wall. Watch the gears and wires tumble out onto the floor. Make my dad angrier than he had ever been and revel in the fact that he felt anything at all towards me. I never had the guts.

Why do I keep getting the same word I don’t even know what modem means? What is wrong with the world. Here’s it goes… Modem is a country in the southern hemisphere with a population of twenty and ten of the population are cows.
By Matisse Perkins on 07.04.2012
computer. if they have a mind of their own, we’re screwed, but does the modem have much to do with that? nope, still it would be an issue. Feeding info into something that could be smarter than people is an issue. I don’t want that to happen.
By Leah on 07.04.2012
i hardly know what one is. computer related i’m sure. sixty seconds is longer than i anticipated. i like the symmetry of the word, if that’s of any interest?

I really don’t know what a modem is. I’ll make something up.
It looks like Demon if you switch one of the m’s to and n. Wow. Lovely mind I have.
By Emily URL on 07.04.2012
the modem beeps, sighing.
another day. it sends the signals back and forth.
just so you can have your precious internet.
it hates how you don’t love it.
why can’t you love it?
