Let's tax our bandwidth next.

For every 100 kb transfered to your computer through the internet, you pay 25 cents.

Morons...

This is the stupidest thing evar. Well, not really.... but its pretty close.

So what are they gonna do? Send a letter to every internet user in the state asking, "How many downloads did you make last month?" Well, I would say around a hundred, but then mark none, cause its voluntary!!! :p

Well, I do save lots of money off the web. I saved like, $30 in taxes when I got my X-Terminator (http://www.hobbypeople.net/gallery/145601.asp). And I only payed a $10 shipping charge :D

whats ironic about this is that the white folk left Europe to escape taxes, but in return they ended up taxing the hell out of everything else. they saw the benefits and taxed everything in sight. they became what they wanted to escape from...stupid settlers..

What bugs me more is that stupid advertisement you are forced to watch before viewing the page. Its only a matter of time before pop-ups become full fledged comercials like on TV. stupid.
