If you made a list of internets, it would be a short list. Hard to claim that "internets" have become generic when there's only the one.
More correctly internet (small 'i') has always referred to any network, such as your local LAN or maybe a multi-site network. Small 'i' internets are countless. The Internet (capital 'I') refers to all of the interconnected internets.

And the turn-around time from original post to dupe was a mere 2 hours and 10 minutes, possibly a new record. Color me impressed.
In high school (early 70s) we had use of a computer timesharing service (Leasco Response Inc utilizing HP 2000A computers) via a TTY Model 33KSR and an acoustical coupler, but a dial lock was placed on the phone outside of normal class hours. A small bunch of us would frequently stay after classes and dial up using the pulse method on the hook button.
Does UPS have a problem with people following their big brown trucks around and grabbing packages? I don't think so.
Actually exactly that has been happening, according to some recent reports in my section of Philadelphia.
Did someone say classic?

They certainly don't work for the government!
In Soviet Philadelphia, the government works for Comcast. Seriously. That's how we avoided having that pesky RCN build a competing system here.
Seriously. RoknrolZombie makes a ridiculous point. If justice meant every citizen had to read every court transcript then justice would be impossible.
Instead, we hire professionals to do that work for us. We call them "judges".
Or we hire jurors and pay them each $9 per diem.
Popup without ANY indication what was installed or why.
No mention of anything in AppStore Update history either.
They do that already for regular security updates.
Why not for the auto-pushed one ?
At least I would have expected to see a "Security update automatically installed on December 23. Click here for more info." message.
I agree. You can find the install info, but not in the App Store where you'd expect to see it.
About this Mac -> More Info (opens System Info) - under Software, click on Installations, then click on the Install Date header to sort.
What you assume is incorrect. Automatic updates are not enabled on my Mac, and this update was the first ever that installed all by itself, merely notifying me after it had done so.
It installed automatically on my Mavericks machine with a notification afterwards. The option I have checked that allowed it is: System Preferences -> App Store -> and checkbox "Install system data files and security updates"
No. Bezos bought the Washington Post newspaper and online version, but he did not buy the Washington Post Company, which owns slate.
First, Slate is a property of the Washington Post Company but is not part of the Washington Post. Neither it nor Foreign Policy nor the Root have been sold. In fact, Bezos isn't even buying the building in which the Post is currently located.
You use that phrase a lot, blissfully unaware that there's no such legal device as imminent domain. Maybe you're referring to eminent domain? Not being able to spell the term, you probably know very little about what it entails.
