Al Gore said, “During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet.”
And that’s true and accurate. As a member of congress means that he didn’t wire up the transistors or write the code but expanded the budget of ARPANET and worked to make it public, and that was the beginning of the internet. No one in Congress did more for it. And the actual experts that did create the infrastructure of the Internet had no problem with Al’s comment as they found it accurate, and you can google that if you so desire!
The half life of plutonium is 24,100 years, but that pales in comparison to the half life of BS in the mind of a rightie!
