Net Neutrality for Dummies 

Jon Stewart from The Daily Show lets Sen. Ted Stevens explain the Internet:

"It is not a truck, it is a series of tubes, and if you do not understand how these tubes can be filled, and if they are filled when you put your message in, it gets in line, its gonna be delayed by anyone who puts in in that tube enourmous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material!"

And the result:

"Ten movies streaming across that, that, Internet, and what happens to your own personal Internet? I ... just the other day, got Internet, was sent by my staff at 10 0'clock in the morning on Friday. I got it yesterday. Why?"

He also lets Sen. Frank Wolf explain why gambling on the Internet is so dangerous (I reported on this here):

"With on-line gambling you can do it in your bath room!"

And finally Jon Stewart also finds an explanation why betting on horses and state lotteries are not banned: They are not clogging and even cleaning up the clogged tubes from Sen. Ted Stevens

So one sees, this is really all well co-ordinated and thought through.

IMO no one can invent such things - they MUST be real.
