So the story for today dear friends is the whole internet blackout thing in protest of some legislation that is both being pushed bi-partisanly and being rejected bi-partisanly. Which is sort of historic if you think about it. Dig it. We’ve been tossing the story around at work and I’m pretty sure that the whole rotten deal is just a way to float the proverbial trial balloon to see just what the public will digest because God knows we can’t keep the internet free and unfettered when there’s some money to be made. Glad to see Paul Ryan is no fan. And the Coach had some words of advice:
“While it warms my icy libertarian heart to see so many people opposing government regulation of the internet, I would just like to point out: The same people that you don’t trust to regulate the internet are the same people in charge of our education system, our energy policy, a significant portion of our health care system, our military, our tax laws, and various other things that impact our daily lives. Just something to keep in mind.”
Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for today. I’m thinking I might go hang out and have a beer with a bunch of libertarians at Redline in Chinatown after work. It’ll be a total nerd hangout. With beer. And when I have a little more time I’m going to write about critical thinking versus getting help with your homework and how I think that’s the true cause of the brain drain. But not today lovelies. Instead, I give you some new music I’ve just been exposed to via Ali P., an amazing video where animals sound like cockney barkeeps, and an apology to my Twitter peeps. I was haxored. I just got this in an email:

Done. Screw you and your magic weight loss program Power Slim.
