+ - Google announces free home internet with TiSP.

Submitted by freyyr890
freyyr890 (1019088) writes "Google Inc announced today the launch of TiSP, or Toilet ISP. The system works by connecting through the municipal toilet maintenance network. The physical wiring must be flushed down your toilet where it will automatically search out and link with the nearest TiSP node. If this installation task is to daunting, you may choose installation by an automated army of nanorobots. Says Larry Page, "What's interesting, though, is how many different modalities there are for actually getting that information to you — not to mention from you."
Interested parties should check out Google's installation guide for more information."
