Influencers

When Netflix* just started rolling out their Internet streaming service I used a VPN service, and streamed a wonderful movie called “Human Centipede”. It’s a surprising accurate portrayal of how things work in my industry, except the labia tua to sphincter connection is entirely voluntary, whereas the victims in the movie were not given an option.

I wonder if the toilet paper industry celebrates “influencers“?

Because, frankly, most people need IP video like they need toilet paper, and it should be just as simple to use. I’ve been to many places on God’s green earth and not once did I encounter toilet paper that wasn’t compatible, or was complicated to work with.

Yet, we “celebrate” leaders that take something that ought to be just as simple, and turn it into a nightmarish ordeal to install and maintain. If you are influential, then you must share some of the blame for the pile of shit that this industry is serving up again and again.

* It’s hard to fathom that a mail-a-DVD-business would be a major driver of the entire US economy, but there you go)
