not clickbait. I was just playing around again with ipv6, as I do every year or two, and noticed tunnelbroker's countdown timer rapidly approaching zero. I thought it would be fun to celebrate it, like watching the silly countdowns on new year's eve. and in my experience, on Sunday there usually aren't any bosses around to squelch merrymaking.

Submission + - ARIN IPv4 addresses run out tomorrow

Of course you can't flap your arms and fly to the moon. After a while you'd run out of air to push against.
