The beginning of an epic quest . . .

 . . . in futility.

China to internet: 'Get rid of all your porn!'

Yeah, um, good luck with that one, fellas.

People always point out how China is turning into an economic superpower, but their failure to grasp the basic essence of the internet seems to contradict this.

I can only imagine how this decision came about: some elder statesman sitting at his computer clicks a bad link. "Dear God . . . the internet is full of porn! How did this happen!? We must stop this before our children see it! Quickly, fetch me my messenger hawk so that I may send a handwritten letter to the Emperor of Google and request his aid in eliminating this menace!"

You're like a fountain of information that noone cares to know. XP

Re: The beginning of an epic quest . . .

these type of quests never fail to amuse for their futility. like twhit said, the chinese authorities seem to have the same lack of conceptual knowledge of the internet like their right wing conservative Christian counterparts have here in the states. it's kind of funny that they would practically use this as a ruse to justify censorship.
