It is no secret that I am a big fan of technology. I recently had a conversation with a friend where she was recounting to me an incident where she left her phone at the gym, walking away for a good 20-minutes before she realized what she had left behind.

That is also the complete opposite reaction you would get when a giant monstrous creature from the depths of the sea the size of a building is stomping towards you.
