Lazyweb Calling

quote [ The common theme of all Lazyweb requests is a tacit acknowledgement that none of us is as dumb as all of us. ]

Stumbled upon this recently – a quite appealing description.

Say goodnight to net neutrality as AT&T just rolled out 'internet fast lanes'

quote [ AT&T spent the better part of last year pretending to shake its fist along with the majority of Americans in support of net neutrality rules being kept. This protesting included CEO Randall Stephenson doing some damage control by slyly asking the... ]

Y do you hate ATTs freedoms though?

The Polyphonic Screed

West Virginia Judge Dismisses Murray Energy's Case Against HBO, John Oliver

quote [ Coal magnate Bob Murray, along with his company, Murray Energy, and other associated coal companies, filed the suit alleging defamation stemming from an episode that aired on June 18, 2017, that examined and exposed the coal companies’ misdeeds. Murray and his company were revealed in the episode to have harassed the families of mine cave-in victims, creating unsafe working environments and ignoring the environmental impact of the coal industry with some clever funnies thrown in. ]

I'm liking this John Oliver fellow more and more every episode I watch. Labeled NSFW for thumb.

NRA gives Ajit Pai “courage award” and gun for “saving the Internet”

quote [ "Ajit Pai, as you probably already know, saved the Internet," American Conservative Union (ACU) Executive Director Dan Schneider told the audience.

"As soon as President Trump came into office, President Trump asked Ajit Pai to liberate the Internet and give it back to you," Schneider added. "Ajit Pai is the most courageous, heroic person that I know." ]

A primary skill of the new information age, in my mind, is flipping a narrative, and investigating if the inverse is true. Let's see, Ajit Pai ruined the internet (probably, lets hope not), is a coward and a tool. Yep, checks out.

Venezuela says its cryptocurrency raised $735 million—but it’s a farce

quote [ Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro claims a new state-sponsored cryptocurrency called the petro raised $735 million on Tuesday—its first day on sale. But the government hasn't provided any way to independently verify that $735 million figure. And there's reason to doubt almost everything the Venezuelan government has said about the project. ]

Still time to get in on the ground floor here, all you need is your money plus a lot of faith in the Venezuelan government.

Vibrator Orders Post-Schlick Pizza

I dunno - I thought the pizza guy with the 10" pepperoni was supposed to show up before, not after.

How the NRA Rewrote the Second Amendment

quote [ The Founders never intended to create an unregulated individual right to a gun. Today, millions believe they did. Here’s how it happened. ]

This has come up a lot this week. Thought it should be posted here. Most people who think this can not be dissuaded in their views no matter what evidence you show them....which to me means you have to make the point.

Darwin's Polar Bear

quote [ Musings upon the whys and wherefores of polar bears, particularly in relation to their forest-dwelling cousins, played an important but often overlooked role in the development of evolutionary theory. Michael Engelhard explores. ]

You can really whip a polar bear's ass
