First up, a pigeon is faster then the internet at sending data! In South Africa a pigeon beat the countries leading internet service provider in a time of 2 hours and 6 minutes, half of which was flight time for the pigeon and the other half downloading the data from the hard drive it carried. Meanwhile the ISP only transmitted 4% of the data during that period.
Next up, last night President Obama gave his speech about health care on TV. Regardless of what side of the fence you sit on for this issue, I found something quite amusing about the whole deal. Before his speech began last night a reporter on CNN commented on how he'd face a tough crowd and how our legislation is not like the British legislation where they got hecklers and whatever else going on in there. In a sense they said we were more polite and respectful. I have to admit, it was quite an amusing build up to this.
