All the Abbott/Turnbull gov's assertions saying that Australians would be happy with a slower internet, that we didn't want fast internet anyway, that all the internet was was a video playback device, all came back to haunt them last night. They tried to do something with it other than playing YouTube, and the result was an abysmal failure.
It was more than just a failure though, it was a complete and utter catastrophe. Australians united in mockery and laughter! At Turnbull and Abbott's internet that they'd fucked up. "Copper! we need more copper!" came the cries of derision! It was a clusterfuck of national proportions.

Twitter became mocking central. So many of us laughing that Twitter seemed almost at breaking point too; I myself had trouble retweeting at one point. "Copper! More copper into the boiler!" the cry went out!
Most deliciously, the guy in the Lieberal Turnbull gov responsible for it all is a raving lunatic gay hater bigot.
Fortunately for David and I we didn't have to suffer the frustration and were simply able to laugh. You see we never got the hallowed census letter with the details of how to log in to the census anyway, so we simply couldn't do it. Thank you Australia Post for that, finally I feel happy with you.
You can look at my Twitter feed to the right for all my retweets last night, but below are some of the best of them :)
Expensive TV ads still running during the Olympics, as the website remains switched off. Sad. pic.twitter.com/IgjHdBNqNO— Mark:Di-Stefano (@MarkDiStef) August 9, 2016
