Save the Internet with Milk

Quite possibly the most important rule of the internet, Net Neutrality, is in danger. If you haven't already heard, congress is pushing to allow ISPs to route packets at two different speeds depending on where those packets originated giving big corporations, which can afford the faster speed, an edge over the little guy. This could mean that sites like assassindrake.com would loose visitors tired of waiting for lower-tier web pages to load.

Please visit SaveTheInternet.com and sign the petition if you haven't yet.

Chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, Senator Ted Stevens is against Net Neutrality...
"And again, the Internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a big truck. It's a series of tubes." Hear Ted Stevens talk about the Internet.

While Ted Stevens is funny enough (though very disturbing for the man in charge of regulating E-commerce) I found the reviews for Tuscan milk even funnier. When amazon.com started selling milk, people started reviewing. Here's one such review:

"11 of 20 people found the following review helpful:
This milk comes from mammals., July 20, 2006
Reviewer: Ted Stevens "Ted" (Washington, DC) - See all my reviews
Tuscan Whole Milk does not come from a truck. It comes from a series of tubes from the the mammal ut utters.

And what heppens to you you, own personal milk? I just the the other day whole milk was sent from my staff at 10 oclock on friday and I got it yesterday. WHY? Because it got tangled up with all these things that going on shopping market commercially!"

I found this review at this page but if its not still there try looking for a review with this title: This milk comes from mammals., July 20, 2006.

Edit: I found out that Amazon is only showing the most recent 750 reviews so the above link may not work much longer.
