We can find answers in 0.6 milliseconds, if not faster, if we so choose. The internet has become a portable library (in the right places of course) and offers education to those that want it.

So, has having access to the internet made you smarter? How often do you use the internet to further yourself in comparison to using it to look at pornography or stupid youtube videos?

...It doesn't make you smarter. You just gain more knowledge depending on how you choose to look at it or do it. You'll most likely forget what you read yesterday because you know you can look it up at any time.

It has. I use the internet for knowledge more than social networking. There are people who use the internet solely for checking their Facebook. But without spending my lonely childhood in front of a monitor, I don't think I'd be as intelligent and, I guess you can say, "street smart" as I am now.

You wiseasses know what TS means.

TS - Yes and no. In general/academic areas, I have used teh internet to waste time with lolcat videos or something similar.

But in regards to my musical endeavors, it has done loads for me. Without UG itself I'd still be so clueless as to guitar technique.

General language in post was to make the question accessible from many angles, 'smarter' is a general term that can encompass knowledge, intelligence or wiseness.

And we all know SKArface is a dick.

id say it was withouth the nternet i probably would not haveacces to dictionaries,music theory,books and random information that i enjoy and like

it has also made me lazier as before we had internet i would go to our shitty library for such things(which usually didnt really have it)

what the ****? I was answering the question with a real answer. My answer is 1 of 2 real answers.

It clearly hasn't done anything for you TS. Literature is literature because words are literal and have a definite meaning..Jesus christ.

I bet you answered as "above average" in the intellect thread.

Internet has given me plenty of opportunite for conversation, reading and discussion. That leads to wisdom and maybe some intelligence.

Pornography has definitely made me smarter. I now know how to cum on a woman's face when there are 8 other guys in the room and not feel awkward about it. Just grunt a lot and say things like "yeah, lick it all up" or "URRRRRGGGGGHHHHNNGGGGHHHNGH".
Catch me,

the internet puts quite a vast amount of information at the fingertips of its users. that being said, just because it's there doesn't mean it's making me any smarter. sure, i know of more things than i would had i not had internet, but that really doesn't make me any smarter. is like reading a cliff's notes vs actually reading the book. sure, you know what happens, but you don't really understand it.

Probably smarter, but it hasn't made me motivated.

To be smart, you have to be knowledgeable, dumbass

Do you have any understanding of the evolution of language?

I bet you answered in a fashion that tired to downplay the DS effect. I made that thread, remember? ^^

Just gtfo my threads, your idiocy and general manner is so disgusting to the extent that i rank you as bad as Eric_Fail, now gtfo.

Not true. Being smart can mean you learn very quickly and retain knowledge well. Why are you being such a prick to that guy?

Haha, youre so cute. Dumbass smart has a definition. It doesn't branch out to words that are related to each other.

Maybe try titling it "Has the internet given you more knowledge?" How the **** is the internet going to make you smart if you're in below basic math and literature classes because your brain just can't work as efficiently as others'?

I also find it arousing that you think making threads about intellect gives you some supreme power over whoever posts in it, and makes you that much better for clicking the "New Post" button and spouting out a bullshit question.
Dumbass.

The internet for me in a few words...
Trolling
Lolcats
Wanking into a Coma
On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:
"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"

That would mean having the knowledge of being able to learn quickly, the knowledge of how you learn well.

Because he's a prick You only have to read a few of his posts and you'll pick that up relatively quickly.

Read my first post again dumb ass. The reason I come off as a prick is because you conveyed me as a prick in your omniscient mind.

maybe we should all just chill out. getting heated at people over the internet is a waste of time. usually getting heated in general is a waste of time. and don't say you guys aren't, because that would be a lie.

If you say so

I'm actually just posting questions and threads because i know people like these type of threads, there has been an influx of philosophy questions and threads of late, i felt like adding to it. It is also part of my research. The question allows for the reader to define it, which is the whole point. Giving me power? Hardly. I just think you're a total idiot. Your mass generalization only considers you, no one else. Therefore it doesn't give me power does it?

The internet gives the option to catch up and surpass on basic math and literature. Some countries or towns don't have very good teachers, the internet (in the right places) can really help there. Also, alot of people like to teach themselves, the internet allows them that option.

I prefer to learn a language online rather than going down to a community center once a week because i can immerse myself more readily daily, instead of only being immersed in it once a week.

Education gives the option to better yourself, if your behind in a class or topic, how can you punish someone who is trying to improve on it? The internet gives them more options to improve and seek out new ways of understanding, that is how the internet gives anyone the option to become 'smarter'.

YOU JUST DEFINED KNOWLEDGE YOU ****ING TWAT.

How can you not understand the point I was trying to get across since the start?

Seriously man... Go make your brain work better by learning some history on the internet.

I defined knowledge through your understanding of 'smart'. ^^ You asked how one would be smarter when they are already behind, i answered it using your definition of the word.
