If you wait a minute, you can see J-Lo's breast

Last week, The Iranian Telecommunications Ministry banned all Internet connections faster than 128 kilobytes per second.

No reason was given, but most experts believe Iran's broadband ban is aimed at hindering the work of Iranian journalists, students and academics, who tend to be critical of the government.

As someone who's worked in an office with a slow Internet connection before, not only I'm I sure this plan won't work but it will quickly backfire because government critics will continue doing whatever they were doing before -- only now it will take them four times longer. Their anger and frustration will drive them into a regime-toppling stupor the Islamic Republic has never seen before.

Once the Iranian government figures this out they will have to ban the Internet all together.

And indoor plumbing just because.
