Internet Tubes

Senator Ted Stevens, chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, heading decisions made on, among other things, net neutrality, demonstrates his complete and utter lack of understanding anything at all.

There's one company now you can sign up and you can get a movie delivered to your house daily by delivery service. Okay. And currently it comes to your house, it gets put in the mail box when you get home and you change your order but you pay for that, right.

But this service isn't going to go through the interent and what you do is you just go to a place on the internet and you order your movie and guess what you can order ten of them delivered to you and the delivery charge is free.

Ten of them streaming across that internet and what happens to your own personal internet?

I just the other day got, an internet was sent by my staff at 10 o'clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why?

Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the internet commercially.


They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck.

It's a series of tubes.

[emphasis mine]

If you're feeling guilty and need to punish yourself, you can read the rest of it here.

Often when i send an internet, it gets held up in the tubes. If only i could pay more money so that i could get access to bigger tubes that wouldn't get filled up so quickly.

Just to add a visual to this so that you realize how net neutrality would bog the system down, a photo of an actual internet (that i lifted from Kos):

bahahahahaha. oh that's funny. where do you find this stupid stuff?

Yeah. Where do you dig up these crazy stories about the people in charge of the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT?

This is even more ridiculous when you actually hear him rather than just read. He clearly has not a clue. "Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the internet commercially." It seems he wants to slow down commerical enterprises though with the previous quote. We need to speed up business on the internet because business is slowing down the internet. Even within his parameters (where he doesn't understand any facts), he can't make a logical argument. He's also 82 years old, been in the Senate for 37, and needs a nap.

ooh! ooh! can i get a nap? can i, please?

Yeah, you can have a nap when you're 82.
