The public-facing Internet became popular due to little things called “Internet Service Providers”, which grew out of three schools, all of whom had access to a higher level of capital that the average worker. Academics, business men, and entres.

Never-you-mind-that, it was just an unscripted, unedited rant anyhow, and I’ve spent all of my free time for the week, so I will just leave it unfinished and rhetorical for now. Sometime between now and 2016, I will update it one way or another.)
Until then, enjoy everything, and rest well and often.
