The Internet Is Not a Truck

Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska recently voted against an ammendment that would have regulated how much telecommunications companies can charge to move traffic. In defending his vote, he explained how the internet works:

They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the Internet. And again, the Internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck. It's a series of tubes.

And if you don't understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and it's going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material.

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.

All this might make you wonder which tube is right for your Internets:

If you're sending a brief impersonal Internet to office staff, by all means use the straw-like tube shown in #1, open at both ends. Never use the tubes pictured in #2; the lids can easily get stuck and your Internet can be held up for days. The waxy liquid-filled tubes pictured in #3 are good if your Internet contains juicy gossip.
