Dude, Revenge Porn is probably the greatest porn innovation of all time.

fisker: Russia has better porn than we do.



Not from what I've seen.  The exposed wires & pipes, crappy wallpapers, and horrid makeup & haircuts are way too distracting.


And why is there a movement to "relinquish authority" of the internet?  It was basically developed in America, and no matter who "runs" it, in time of a large-scale war it will be shut down or restricted in whatever way various governments deem important.

This is like complaining that someone else is going to help you take out the garbage.

It always looks like it was filmed on a VHS circa 1990 and nobody looks like they're having any fun. It's quite frankly just depressing.

Ugh. Eastern European women seem hard-faced and angry, and they look like they smell like Pall Malls. And do they have any other scenarios besides "young couple in crappy apartment needs money so they rent the girl out to guy's friend, and the girl and her boyfriend's friend have sex while the boyfriend watches disinterestedly"?

They're using dash-cams to get the shot.

Internet access is power

CSB: I rent out my internet to a few people. One of the people I used to do it to had a fine looking lady. I decided to hit on her and he got pissed and decided to cancel our deal. Sure enough, two days later, cap in hand asking me to restore it.

Porn has scenarios? I just fast forward to where the beej starts.

Because the US has no real power over the internet. It's all run by ICANN, very independently. The US had a contract with them that required a certain approach, but that approach is almost certainly not going to change. But the perception that the US was trying to control the internet (think suspicion of NSA backdoors) was actively hurting the US in international negotiations.

This isn't a relinquishing of any real authority. It's really just formally recognizing a situation that already exists in order to combat a harmful perception.
