"This Whole Thing Smacks Of Spyware," i holler as i overturn my uncle's wireless-enabled barbeque grill and turn the internet of things into the internet of shit

@dankwraith I had to keep myself from cackling in the middle of class at "the internet of shit"

@dankwraith i hate that that is going to be a thing if it isnt already

@ItsJenNotGabby @dankwraith It is a thing. I bought a new grill last year and it is indeed 'wireless-ready'. Not fully 'wireless-enabled' - you have to buy an extra gee-gaw to attach to the grill, after which you can connect to it from your phone, to do something internetty with it.

Luckily, you can still make it hot and put food on it without all that.
