Now it has been a while since I was in the mood to muse as it were but when the muse mood strikes it is best to be by a keyboard so you can ponder the ramifications of world events.
In Turkey — a world away from where I am today, it seems YouTube has been blocked because a video contained on the site is defamatory to the founder of modern Turkey. In the interest of keeping my loyal readers in the country I will refrain from mentioning his name in any fashion at all.
Unfortunately the court probably is not aware there is something new and interesting called the internet where the video can be downloaded from millions or even billions of other sites. Perhaps the thing to do is emulate neighboring Iran and just slow internet access so video is not even able to be seen.
It seems some countries are enamored to be thought of as third world countries by everyone else.
Again this gets us back to a blog entry I wrote back in December of last year titled YouTube as Political Barometer which discusses how we can gain valuable insight about a country depending on how they view YouTube.
If you made it this far you are probably in disbelief or laughing which brings us to the next topic of today’s musings – emotions. It seems technology has advanced to the point where you can now use your brain to play games with your emotions. This is great for people who enjoy the mind games but don’t feel like dating.
