Do you accept cookies?

There is something incredibly silly happening on the Internet out there.

Apparently several countries (the European union?) are forcing sites to ask their users if they accept cookies. The result is that we are now forced to see yet another irrelevant message when accessing Europeans sites warning that if we keep seeing the site we would be agreeing with a clause we know nothing about regarding an uninteresting complex issue that we don't want to understand now. This create a habit of ignoring the stupidity we are forced to see, and to accept any stupid deal. The problem is that it opens the doors for the creation of new clauses in these tacit agreements that will benefit certainly those who write them. With the manifest intention of trying to protect us from cookies (come on!!) governments worldwide are making our lives a little worse. This seems to be the main function of government: make our lives a hell a regulation at a time.
