The Internet is not very bright
Yesterday in this space I mentioned that the Internet isn't very bright. This is why books came first, graduating super early, being something of a prodigy. Then finally photography and radio made it out about on time. TV, notoriously dim and hulking, was held back for a few years, but eventually had to be given a real job, and then last, after ages of remedial education and long stints in Reform School, the Internet was dribbled into the world where it now stands around breathing heavily.
Yes, that's it, right now, lurking back behind you, looking over your shoulder.
"This one sucks." It says in a thick, bored, irritated voice.
If it's right in this case, it is purely by accident.
