Not silly at all - it is important to slow down the legislative process. We have enough bad laws as it is, if you go and make the process efficient we'd have several orders of magnitude more bad laws.

"why in the blue blazes would a supermarket have its own date format?"

Can't answer that but I once worked at an electronic component distributor where the IT "guru" wrote an inventory control program in RPG II that lacked units of measure. So when you saw that you had 647 of something you had no idea if it was pieces, feet, spools, gallons, pallets or some other weird measure.

Re: But then who will protect the internet from the US government?

Ted Cruz. Once he get control of the internets, everyone outside of Texas will make an even better replacement that routes around the old one. You can do things like that when you're a superhero that flys around on the back of a yuuuge eagle. Unless the new Ted Cruz coloring book is full of lies...
