US Senator Ted Steven's brilliant comments

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.

And if you don't understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and its going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material.

Now we have a separate Department of Defense internet now, did you know that?
To appreciate it, one must read the entire transcript. Those bumbling words come from the Chairman of the US Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. At the bottom of the home page when I visited, the "Did you Know" blurb reads: "During World War II, Committee Chairman Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) piloted the C-46 and C47 with the 14th Army Air Corps Transport Section, which supported the Flying Tigers." Good thing federal tax money is being spent to highlight this idiot's military career!! Really freakin' relevant to Americans, and way more important than any other information that could have been chosen for that spot.

Hahaha, a humorous investigation of/response to the alleged sent "internet" in Stevens' stories. Ryan Singel from 27 BStroke 6 blog @ Wired

"Little Mr. Apricot Flips Off Crowd, Loses Title" - cbs13

Ah, how I love human interest stories that are engineered to draw in media consumers with the bizarre. This news report is ridiculous. The 4yr old pageant winner thought he was showing the crowd that he was number one. Though he never intended to flick/flip the crowd off, none of the interviews (+ disgusting flashy local reporting) mention that it was a misunderstanding, to preserve the drama.

The female anchor gushy bubbles over the boy's cute smile just after a clip of the FOUR year old planted in front of his Xbox. He looks like a zombie, no cute smile at all. He has an Xbox directly in front of the bed in his room, and the walls are blank. [*rehab for video games?] There's a close up of his little fingers clenching his controller. Really sad. I'd like to slap his mother.

"Experts Debate Labeling Children Obese"

Obese "sounds mean. It doesn't sound good," said Trisha Leu, 17, who thinks the proposed change [to use more direct terminology in diagnosing children] is a bad idea.

The Wheeling, Ill., teen has lost 60 pounds since March as part of an adolescent obesity surgery study at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

"When you're young, you don't understand what obese means," Leu said. "I still don't understand it."

"Tibetan dissident to accuse Chinese of torture and genocide"

"Many European countries speak of peace and human rights and harmony. But on business they all cosy up to China, it's hypocritical. Through asking for justice in an international court I hope they will have second thoughts," Mr Tsundue said.

"Over three months I was beaten, starved, became infested with lice and had a red-hot poker brandished in front of my eyes. For me, those long sessions of interrogation were so intimidating, humiliating, and disturbing that many times I found myself crying in the middle of night in my dark prison cell," he said.
