Slow internet. Slow internet. Sllllooooooowwwwww innterrnettttt.

How slow?

Slower than the doldrums.

Slower than siesta in the south of Spain.

Slower than a tortoise towing a glacier.

That slow.

Since the beginning of time…

Inspired by Garth George I finally found this quote:

Smithers: Well, Sir, you've certainly vanquished all your enemies: the
          Elementary School, the local tavern, the old age home...you
          must be very proud.
   Burns: [stuffing money into his wallet] No, not while my greatest
          nemesis still provides our customers with free light, heat and
          energy.  I call this enemy...the sun.
           [throws a switch; a control panel appears at his desk]
           [another button slides the floor off a model of Springfield]
          Since the beginning of time man has yearned to destroy the
          sun.  I will do the next best thing...block it out!
           [another button raises a shield over the model town]
Smithers: Good God!
