The Republican senator from Alaska Ted Stevens gives an amazing overview of how the internet works. I learnt so much.

The internet got stuck?:
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?

Maybe it was his workmate sending him 'the internet' that clogged up the lines.
He must have some huge pipes to recieve it in just a few days.

Who'd have thought? The US Navy has planned a destroyer with his name.

 

Also:

 

 

 

Stevens, who died in a 2010 plane crash, was the longest continuously serving U.S. Senator at the time of his death. For 40 years and 10 days between 1968 and 2009, he held one of Alaska’s two U.S. Senate seats.

 

 

 

Stevens served in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II and flew cargo missions over the Himalaya Mountains. He practiced law and became an advocate for Alaska statehood while serving in a variety of roles for the federal government. He served in the Alaska House of Representatives before becoming a U.S. senator. He was an almost ubiquitous figure in the state’s political life and was declared “Alaskan of the Century” by the Alaska Legislature in 2000. In 2008, he was convicted of federal charges of failing to report gifts. That conviction was overturned after Stevens' defeat in the 2008 U.S. Senate

And therein lies the problem. Lawyers.

 

They become politicians.

What a shock. Let me guess, he reported them on the internets, but they didn't get there in time? /s
