Sen. Stevens reminds us that The Intarwebs are serious business!

You've probably heard about Senator Steven's hilariously clueless speech about The Internets at the Senate Net Neutrality bill hearings. But if not:

But this service isn't going to go through the internet 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.

So you want to talk about the consumer? Let's talk about you and me. We use this internet to communicate and we aren't using it for commercial purposes. We aren't earning anything by going on that internet. Now I'm not saying you have to or you want to discriminate against those people.

I think someone needs to explain to Senator Stevens (in small words, plz!) that The Interwebs Are Actually For Porn. ;]
