Senator on Internet Policy Subcommittee Has "Never Sent an Email". To quote Charlie Brown, Good Grief. This really shouldn't surprise anybody but obviously it has. There are all sorts of simple everyday tasks that you and I might do that politicians (especially life time ones like Graham) will never have to deal with. And this isn't a Left vs Right thing. Just today Hillary Clinton says she used a personal e-mail server for work because she didn't want to have to carry two phones. Because smart phones can only handle one e-mail address. Because it's still 2003.

Good Jorb America, way to democracy well.

Why America's Internet Is So Shitty and Slow. Speaking of the internet, here's another good read by Gizmodo that lays out (in real basic, basic terms) why US internet is so awful compared to oh I don't know pick a country. Japan, Korea, Finland, Ireland... wait? Ireland. Jeez that's kinda depressing.

Taurus First 24 Kit. What do you guys think? Is a kit like this a good idea to have just in case you need it or is it nonsense marketed to people who've seen too many episodes of Z Nation? Personally, I have a really terrible emergency kit in the house that's filled with food that probably expired 2 years ago. Is adding a gun insane or practical?

Eight Of The Strangest Animated TV Shows From The 1980s. Oh man, Kid Video was my jam. I LOVED that show. I wish it would show up on Netflix so I can torment my kids with it.

Celebrating gaming at PAX East 2015. PAX East was this last weekend, you know what that means? It's officially convention season! ECCC is right around the corner. This year things get serious. I've taken the day before the convention off just so I can prepare for Friday. Plus I've been ebaying my budget up the last few weeks. If things work out I'm going to walk out with a lot of cool swag on Sunday.
