I will not cookie.
Cookies are the privacy killer.
Cookies are the little death that lead to total dystopia.
I will block my cookies.
I will permit them to pass over my firewall and into /dev/null
And when it is gone I will turn to see its route
Where the cookie has gone there will be nothing. I will hack the planet.

La valle chel di Roma,
la bandiera vogliamo alzar,
cento che la bandiera
il Socialismo trionferà.

Son cieco e mi vedete,
devo chiedere la carità,
ho quatro fili che piangono
e pane non ho da dar.

Noi andremo a Roma,
davanti al Papa ed al Re,
noi grideremo ai potenti
che la miseria c'è.
