ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOMOUSE!

I feel like there's a PornHub joke in here somewhere but I'm too tired and sticky to come through to completion.

I get most of my news from European and science sites and for entertainment, it's FARK and imgur.

That hand is also doing the majority of the entertaining.

PBS
NHK
Fark
Pandora

...huh.

Fark that. You can count on two hands the sources for the majority of most everything in your local super market. Hundreds of brands and products consolidated into a very small number of global conglomerates.

More than I thought, I was pretty sure Disney or Amazon was behind everything.

See, this is why I don't read anything or watch the news. Nothing you learn is real, the truth is what your masters already decided and there is nobody to tell you different.

Unless.

In my new book, Human Intelligence: Hacking The Quantum Library I delve into how to tap into the quantum entanglement that exists between all people who have or shall exist and interpret the results into meaningful ways to guide your way through life.

When you purchase my book, you'll find out how to access my lecture series at a fraction of the price of a lifetime of ignorance. In that series I'll bring your attention to products and services that will enhance your growth toward the realization of your goals and share with you how to discover their unique benefits for yourself. You'll also get an invitation to join the exclusive Humanity Club, where self-actuated patrons of the Quantum Library welcome new members.

Also, I'll throw in a Power Bracelet, keyed individually to you through unique arrangement of the Power Stones. We tailor the arrangement through a proprietary algorithm that uses the geospatial coordinates of your birth along with certain other identifiers to create a pattern that encodes your ultimate public True Name and proclaims your search for the Truth Beyond Truth.

Who else are you going to listen to? Comcast's web of evil?

And most of that is by choice, not from lack of options. Especially nowadays.

Are we longing for glory days that never existed? At what point in history did most people routinely get information and/or entertainment from more than a handful of sources? Even as recently as 40 years ago, most people had access to one newspaper or perhaps two in bigger cities (that received their information from one or two wire services), plus three TV networks and maybe a couple of radio stations (most of which were pulling from the same TV networks or wire services) or magazines.

/Also, they should be labeling it "American media". There are a hell of a lot of other sources out there now that you can access just as easily as those cited in TFA.

I expect Amazon will buy a couple of those small green dots

The graph shows about 84 million broadband subscribers, but shows 139 million Netflix subscribers. Any idea for the discrepancy? Does the number of Netflix subscribers include subscribers outside the USA?  Or are there another 55 million people in the USA using smaller ISPs or cellular for Netflix?

Soooo....is the writer a brain damaged monkey who doesnt consider video games to be entertainment? Or were those "accidently" ignored because they would have destroyed the narritive they were pushing

Cellular is possible but they probably aren't counting all people within one broadband connection (e.g., college dorms) individually, whereas Netflix is counting accounts.

Economy of scale inevitably leads to monopoly. It's up to the government to break up large conglomerates and to prevent them from happening in the first place. Unfortunately most of the government is bought by the corporations.

I only need one finger!

Fark!

I count on one hand to provide me with the majority of my entertainment, but I have a backup hand just in case.
