A Year of No Net Neutrality


It’s been a year since the FCC put an end to the so-called “net neutrality” regulations. IIRC, ending those regulations was supposed to kill either all of us or the Internet or, maybe, both, depending on which Progressive was warning us.

I have to admit that I’m a bit bored with that form of being dead. However, some of the tax silliness being proposed may create new opportunities to be be dead for tax reasons.

Quote of the Day


For Children:  You will need to know the difference between Friday and a fried egg.  It’s quite a simpledifference, but an important one.  Friday comes at the end of the week, whereas a fried egg comes out of a chicken.  Like most things, of course, it isn’t quite that simple.  The fried egg isn’t properly a fried egg until it’s been put in a frying pan and fried.  This is something you wouldn’t do to a Friday, of course, though you might do it on a Friday.  You can also fry eggs on a Thursday, if you like, or on a cooker.  It’s all rather complicated, but it makes a kind of sense if you think about it for a while.

Quote of the Day


It is known that there is an infinite number of worlds, but that not every one is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so if every planet in the Universe has a population of zero then the entire population of the Universe must also be zero, and any people you may actually meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.

The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas-covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think that this to be the normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.
