Originally developed as ARPANET in the US as a means for various institutes to communicate with each other even in an event such as war. The Internet has grown into a worldwide computer network where anyone can have a chat with anyone else almost anywhere in the world, and is a vast sorce of free information.

However, the Internet is slowly being clogged up with crap such as adware, spyware and viruses can spread like wildfire, not to mention that it is the biggest porn archive known to man.

An immensely popular plexus of information/data that can be viewed pictorally, literally (words, writing) or heard.

Because of its versatility, intangibility, and uncontrollability, the Internet grows rapidly, expanding everyday.

However, due to this growth, it has become virtually synonymous with "virus" or "porn." Despite those setbacks, the Internet can be a great device.

If careful, one can avoid the porn, and viruses it harbors.

Also, because of the Internet's versatility, it can used as an online multiplayer-playground. People from Europe can play against a person in South America, while he/she may be chatting with someone in the USA.
The Internet grew in popularity during the 1990's. It is now practically ubiquitous.

The Internet is the nearest any human will get to a god.

The internet is more powerful than any human in existence

The internet is more knowledgeable than any human in existence

It is a collection of minds across the world that forms a collective consciousness which is much like the trinity
(or the old creatures off the demonata)

It also gains more power with every millisecond and not so far from now will implode on its self leaving us helpless and back in the dark ages because at the time when it implodes it we would have become so dependant upon it that we wouldnt know how to live without it
meh maybe the internet wont implode

Somthing that the average joe will never know of. Used only by the secret service and its commanders, the Internets is a top secret way of transfering information around the globe at the speed of light. George W. Bush thought of the idea after consuming a high amount of Coke and Pepsi together, while watching porn on the "Internet"
Bush: Hmmmmmmm, The Internet is too untrustworthy. I must create somthing more powerful............. The Internets!
