The world's largest network of computers. The Internet used to be a very valuable source of information; but is now full of scammers, advertisements, harmful software, idiots, trolls, domain squatters, advertisements, pornography and a lack of coherent sentences.

There are a set of rules of being on the Internet, follow them and you'll be fine. If you don't, you're going to hate the Internet. The two most important rules are:

1. Don't make yourself look like an idiot, it leaves you open to flames.

2. Don't trust ANYONE, whether it has to do with giving someone your Hotmail password or your credit card number. You can't really trust a stranger, can you?
Josh posted a thread on a forum he often visits about how much he thinks Halo sucks. After seeing the post, several members flamed Josh and he was eventually banned for posting threads about those members. Josh became angry and decided to edit/add Wikipedia articles about the members and the forums and his IP address was subsequently banned from Wikipedia. After seeing the articles about them, the members in question distributed Josh's e-mail address through the forums, instructing all the users to send him hate e-mails for being an asshole. Josh's e-mail inbox was flooded with hate e-mails and spam and Josh suffered a panic attack and later terminated his Internet account.

Moral of the story: No one cares if you hate something or like one thing more than another, so shut up.

A wonderfully intended invention which connects people all across the world and reminds us how alike we all are. A sea of applicable and totally non-applicable knowledge, the internet has possibilities sprouting out of its possibilities. It is a revolutionary tool for enhancing the every day lives of the lazy, the stoned, the crackpots, the insonmiacs, the anti-social and the procrastinators.
The internet is a modern day outlet for shopping, knowledge, communication, grass-root movements, information, personal expression, school, media sharing and organizations. The internet has probably had the biggest affect on all people of any technological advance in the past 30 years.

A web site mocking President Bush's gaffe in a CNBC interview, calling Google, "the Google". In the 2000 Presidential Primary debates he refers to the Internet as "Internets" saying, "There's rumors on the Internets" in response to a question. Video here: youtube.com/watch?v=fezjR zAWa2Q. The web site is: thegoogleontheinternets.com.

a place on the computer where one can pretend to be researching for their history paper when one is actually checking for new comments on one's myspace.
Mother says to son "Timmy, what are you doing on our personal computer?"

Timmy responds with "Well golly, I was just researching for my history paper, of course on the good ol' world wide web, or as some like to call it, the internet."
