Through the Prism

After passing through the prism, each refraction contains some pure essence of the light, but only an incomplete part. We will always experience some aspect of reality, of the Truth, but only from our perspectives as they are colored by who and where we are. Others will know a different color and none will see the whole, complete light. These are my musings from my particular refraction.

The Internet Is a Series of Tubes

The Senator is an intelligent man, and knows that "bandwidth" refers to the size of the straps used to hold the tubes together.

He also fully understands that clogs can occur in the tubes, in which case, one must use a router to clear them out. He knows that data is launched into the tubes much as a golf ball is struck. The point of data launch is tee one, and for net neutrality to work, those with the most money should have first crack at the tee, also just as in golf. This sort of knowledge is instinctual among Republicans.

Data is delivered to people on the net by young men and women, usually college students, called servers. They all work in large, rural compounds in Iowa and Wisconsin called server farms, so we never see them.

Once in a while the tubes will break, allowing all the data to gush out. You can then surf on this.

Refractions from the Al Gore movie?

Glad you're back. Love the writing style.

You obviously don't know what the hell you're talking about. Everyone knows "Internets" is plural.
Dumbass.

Thanks, but I can't take credit. It's from one of those emails that's being forwarded around through all the Internets.
