The false inventor of the internet and inventor of false information for which he won a nobel prize. Interesting.
"Did you hear about Al Gore's nobel prize?"

"Yeah, well he really did deserve one. I mean, the man invented the internet!"

Just to clarify, he did not invent the internet. It was Tim Berners-Lee. TBL, born 1955, is currently a senior researcher and holder of the 3Com Founders Chair at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). He is also a Knight Commander (second-highest rank in the Order of the British Empire). Wiki him. While you're at it, look up Philo T. Farnsworth. He invented the television. These are good guys to know about.
Al Gore probably made that claim because he, like most people, does not know who actually invented the Internet. And continues to make sure it stays royalty-free. We (should) all owe him a lot. But he chose not to profit from it. Thanks Tim!

Shorthand for an e-mail joke, urban myth, web link or other oft-forwarded material that is so old and tired, it is likely one of the first things Al Gore put on the internet after he invented it.
"Hey Homes, check out this vid my grandma sent me. Some fat kid lip-syncing this whack song about numa numa. Is that funny or WHAT?!"

"I ain't studyin' that Al Gore shit, ese."

Former vice president of the United States and former congressman. He is best known for his claim of having been a mind behind the internet, as spoken by himself: "During my service in the United States Congress I took the initiative in creating the Internet."

Gore was elected to congress in 1976, seven years after the first internet transmission occurred at UCLA in 1969.

Though not claiming to have "invented" the internet, his claim is similar to that of anyone adding something so minorly substantial to something and claiming to have helped invent it.
Al Gore, who believes himself to have helped create the internet, is in fact only lying. One can see further examples of this by watching his new movie, An Inconvenient Truth.

vice president to the Clinton administration and star in the documentary An inconvenient Truth , family man, whom wife Tipper has totally whipped. Although he never became president, point which has been in debate between democrats and republicans, there is no denying he is a brilliant man, although, uh yeah, he has the charisma of a teacup.
Well, to be honest, I think Al Gore is awesome, he actually got a college degree without daddy pulling any strings... jaja not that i`m implying anything about anyone else.
