How the interent works

I know this has been doing the blog rounds already, but hey! I like it!

US Senator Ted Stevens explains how the Internet works and why net neutrality is a bad thing:

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.

    “And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It’s not a truck.

    It’s a series of tubes.”

    That had me giggling like a schoolgirl.

    I’d imagine it would take me a few days to receive an internet, too.

    To be honest you shouldn’t even think of complaining until 28 days after you first ordered your internet.

    Yes, go on, laugh at the poor Senator; how is he supposed to make sense of these things, with only about 50 staffers to help him keep up? Unlike you guys, who probably work on your own. It’s a lot easier without all that miscommunication going on, you know.

    He didn’t say that he had his own internet though – he said that one was delivered to his office. It might not have been for him. It might’ve been a bribe or something and he had to send it back.

    Did you download the MP3? He sounds even less coherent. The “tubes” bit made me laugh even more!
