America is Slow on the Uptake

We're lagging behind dozens of nations in everything from life expectancy to -- this is shocking -- internet speed.

The United States as a whole lags in speed, coming in 25th behind South Korea, which has the fastest speeds in the world. Even Romania clocks in ahead.

I'm not exaggerating when I say this is an effing outrage. We ought to be kicking ass with all things digital. After all, we're getting destroyed on manufacturing, healthcare and infrastructure (high speed rail, etc) and now we can't even compete online? The future of America is here: we're a continental shopping mall. Good morning!
