I’m sick of playing weekly whack-a-mole with nasty trackers on popular sites. If a site is trying this hard to invade our privacy & extract our personal information, we should stop visiting them, regulate them as malware, shut them down, and fire everyone responsible into the sun.

Douglas Adams Quotes I Can Remember:

"The ships hung in the sky in exactly the way that bricks don't."

"Let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all."

"I love deadlines. I love the whooshing sound they make as they go by."

"For a moment, nothing happened. Then, after a few seconds, nothing continued to happen."

"Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job."
