This has just got to be a milestone for Internet historians:


When I saw this report, the final scene of the recent Hobbit movie flashed
into my brain -- where the hero (Bilbo) laments "What have we done!!!?"

Excuse me, I have to go configure my router so that my refrigerator can't
talk to the outside world.  I'm assuming of course that my router is still
actually doing what I tell it to do.
