I recently discovered that the concept of democracy is rapidly evolving... I was under the impression that democracy consists in discussing various ideas, voting, and deciding according to the results of the vote. But now I discover that today democracy seems to be something like "If I cannot win, I refuse to discuss and to vote".
To me, this looks like a modern reimplementation of the old "I don't play unless I am sure I will win" idea.

According to some reliable data (that I obviously forget to reference in details),
- 70% of the internet traffic is due to video downloading/streaming/something;
- 60% of the internet traffic is P2P
- 30% of the internet traffic is due to spam
- 20% of the internet traffic is generated by people trying to understand how many cups of tea they can boil with a google query
- 15% of the internet traffic is generated by people boiling a cup of tea
- 30% of the internet traffic is generated by people trying to brew some coffee... But for some reason google only works with tea (the ICFM - Internet Coffee Freedom Movement - is working on this)
- 5% of the internet traffic is generated by people who wanted to microwave some food by pressed the wrong button
- 3% of the internet traffic does not have an opinion (do not know if this is relevant here, but "does not have an opinion" always sounds good in all kinds of statistics)
