Five witticisms about the Internet

I culled these tidbits (any many more that you don't want to read) from various places on the 'net.
  1. Dave Barry wrote that the basic problem with the Internet is that the information was created by people and therefore was suspect. "In other words, the Internet is a lot like CB radio, only with a lot more typing."
  2. The Internet is so large and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
  3. The Internet is like Tetris for people who still remember how to read.
  4. Reading from the Internet is like trying to drink from a fire hose. Posting to the Internet is like trying to shout at people as they go past on a roller coaster. Archiving the Internet is like trying to wash toilet paper.
  5. Finally, there is the classic New Yorker magazine cartoon showing a dog at the keyboard, with the caption "On the Internet, no one knows you're a dog."
