What happened to Cowboy TV?

  • What happened to Cowboy TV?

  • He was a wolf skulking among the folds, making a quick end to promising young stories. But a brave user cried "wolf" calling the folding posse together to hunt Cowboy TV.

  • "Come and get me, SlimWhitman," said Cowboy TV. "You and all your pitiful folding idiots." Cowboy TV transformed then into a literal wolf and bought a 1-way ticket to Switzerland.

  • But SlimWhitman was momentarily detained from responding to Cowboy TV's dare. Cowboy TV sought the best Swiss doctor to cute its lupus, but wolf doctors deal more with dentistry.

  • There was a red wolf who did take on lupus cases, named Dr. George. Slim Whitman called Dr. George and made an appointment.

  • He watched Slim, typing furiously on his phone & mumbling what sounded like "4-minutes-180-only-180-fold-pass-fold-pass" and something about a manatee. "Mr. Whitman", the Dr. said,

  • "I believe you may be suffering from foldimania." "Don't be ridiculous, Doc," Slim snorted derisively, "I can quit any time I want," but his fingers were a blur above the keyboard.

  • Slim's folds were spamming the homepage. Each minute the homepage gained 100 more folds. His addiction was serious. The doc had to get a nurse help drag Slim away from the computer

  • but they were connected by a cord that came out of the back of Slim's head and into the back of the computer. Slim was mainlining the internet straight to his brain. Low bandwidth

  • was not a problem with his quantum connection. "Spooky action at a distance" allowed downloading the entire internet at femtosecond speeds. Asynchronous upload rate was 300 baud.

    Indeed, the upload rate is the problem - even with a direct neural interface.

    Another problem is that, according to Eric Schmidt the CEO of Google, the internet is about 5 million terabytes, and the human brain can store only about 10 terabytes.

    Arguably, there are things on the internet one can probably do very well without. I wonder what a word cloud of the internet's content would look like?

    There would be to many Kardashians on it. Damn, I just added to it!
