MY TWO SATANGS
What do licking your own elbow and policing the internet have in common? They are both impossible. However, they are both things that certain groups of people wish they could do.
I am sure that after this week, Thai authorities are particularly interested in licking their elbows. Sorry, I mean policing the internet. If it were truly possible to regulate all cyber content, then we wouldn't have the embarrassing situation of hacked government websites, videos of police accepting bribes and prostitutes selling their services over the worldwide web.
In a country where bad things never happen because "the truth" upsets too many people, the internet poses quite a problem for people with power. Thank God for the internet.
