I mean, think about it: with the internet, we have instant access to the largest library of information that humanity has ever created. We have the power to talk to people clear across the globe whenever we want to. We can buy things without leaving our bedrooms.

I just realised, this is really, really amazing.

Being connected with the REST OF THE WORLD via a single cable is mindblowing, and yet we treat the internet as something we're entitled to (i.e. complaining about low connectiong speeds).

We waste so much time just doing nonsense on the internet, which is arguably the greatest technology ever invented, shouldn't we feel guilty for not using it better?

discuss and comment about the internet, on the internet.

now with correct title.

If you really think about it, it has turned parts of humanity into a collective intelligence.

Need to know something? Google/wiki it. Not to sure about something? Use the internet. The more info on the internet the more info those that use it regular have access to.

Yeah dude. If you think about it, the stuff we have now would be the subject of a sci-fi novel back then. And a really crazy one at that.

the internet really is pretty ridiculous when you think about it. without the internet, i couldn't be interacting with other people i don't know right now (or people at all, as it's 5:30 am here). makes you wonder how people learned to play guitar back in the days before the internet.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Too bad he was Irish, and just got drunk instead.


Are you kidding? This is totally a drunk guy's idea. What with the porn.

he was probably drunk when he pitched the idea, then sobered up and went on to make billions.

"If only there was a way to see people naked at any time of the day, no matter what"


Yea, I can see that. Reminds me of that Family Guy skit where the Irish were super advanced until discovering booze TBH...

heh. I remember that one.

Disclaimer: all jokes on the Irish here are based on stereotypes. Nobody actually believes them, and nobody means any harm. All you guys from the "politically correct police" can procede to fuck off now.

All the drink stereotypes are true about us, even if not to the same extent. The Eastern Europeans and Russians drink a hell of lot more than us though!
#23
the technology is amazing, but the internet has created alot of bad stuff aswell.
The stuff is full of porn, and childporn.
Sites filled with hate and video's of murder and torture.
viruses, spam
sites like 4chan, ogrish..
I'm sure Bill Gates never saw that coming
#24
I don't really stop and think about the Internet.
I do, however, look at the calendar and go "Holy crap, it's the 21st century" every 2 months.
Ceci n'est pas une signature.

Well we don't exactly have our runways covered in beer bottles like in Family Guy... but we enjoy our drink! The same as most cultures though I'd say, just that little bit more. We don't mind the stereotype/joke at all, I myself think it's quite funny.
#28
yeah I've done this...

the whole concept of it though still amazes me.

all the ideas that were created because of it.

like just today I searched for a loud alarm clock online and found one, turned up the vol on my computer and went to sleep...an hour and a half later I was up again...

thank you internet.
yo.

I BELIEVE

Hey, I'm from germany, our "drinkers stereotype" is third in line after you guys and the russians

but still, idiots get worked up about jokes based on ethnic and cultural stereotypes. stupid people they are.

irishmen aren't drunks...irishmen are terrorists.

they created the whole alcoholic thing themselves as a facade to mask their true nature.

I suggest learning to properly make nonsensical claims everyone.

I don't stop and think about it, but I do still have to stop and think "The year 2000 isn't that recent anymore."

You're such a fool!

Irishmen are secretly the spawn of satan and have been sent to earth to corrupt everyone with their drinking and violence, so that Satan may become the ruler of the planet!

Everyone knows that!
