Joseph Robinette Biden: What’s Your Website Number?

Technically, forgetting your “website number” can be true. Each domain name is actually a number. But the numbers are converted via a Domain Name Server (DNS) so we mortals can remember GoingLikeSixty.com as opposed to trying to recall http://69.89.31.XXX. (I removed the last three numbers for pseudo-security.)

But on CBS Morning Show when Joe Biden said he forgot the number, he really didn’t know what he was talking about.
So Joseph Robinette Biden joins Ted Stevens discussing the series of tubes and Dubya who talked about the “internets” and “the Google.”

How many people do you know that would confuse a web address with web number?

These people scare me a lot.

Joseph Robinette Biden: What’s Your Website Number? — 8 Comments

  1. The scary thing is that these guys don’t understand how the internet works but have the power to pass laws trying to control it. They can’t control it, but they may very well be able to fuck it up.

  2. Brings to mind a motorcycle instructor that never road a motorcycle before. I have long been tired of having geriatrics running our country that are still living somewhere far their own past.

    Not saying that someone in their 40’s can do any better but at least the chances of them living in the present are a hell of a lot better.

  3. I thought about bringing the camera but decided against it. This guy is rather obsessive about his privacy.

    And Laurie was there from 6:00 PM on to help with the hauling (using Shop-Vac in wet mode to suck water out) when my back finally gave out. Can’t say enough good things about that woman.
