A South Carolina politician is hoping to stop computer owners in his state from viewing pornography.

State Rep. Bill Chumley, a Republican from Spartanburg, told his hometown newspaper that his Human Trafficking Prevention Act would require manufacturers or sellers of computers or other devices that access the Internet to install digital blocks to prevent the viewing of obscene content. Blocking websites that facilitate prostitution would also be required, he said.

If a purchaser wants the filter lifted, he or she has to pay $20 to have it taken out—provided the person is over the age of 18.

    Now, just stop that. I'm sure that Aristarchus has a real mother. She might even be a nice lady. I doubt it, but maybe she is. I mean - I have three sons, and they are all very different. You can't judge me by my sons - one of them is a lot smarter than I am, and the other two - well - they are different. Just stop picking on Aristarchus mom.

    Unless you can share the videos, anyway.

      With a child like Aristarchus, you can be sure that she's the kind of mother that enjoyed drinking rubbing alcohol and sniffing glue between sessions of anonymous sex with random barnyard animals.
