Tunneling through paywalls

Here's how I use quantum theory IRL, step-by-step:

1) Copy and paste the blocked URL into outline.com

2) Open an Incognito window on Google and see if the blocked URL works

3) Put the blocked URL into Google Search and when it appears, click on the little inverted triangle at the end of the result: a window saying Cached (top) will open — click on it

4) Put the blocked URL into the archive.org search box: the unblocked article may well appear in its entirety
