Common criticism of the Internet is that it is dominated by
the crude, the
uninformed, the immature, the smug, the untalented, the
repetitious, the
pathetic, the hostile, the deluded, the self-righteous, and
the shrill.
This criticism overlooks the fact that the Internet also
offers - for the
savvy individual who knows where to look - the tasteless and
borderline
insane. -
 ~ Dave Barry

Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some
people it is a
complete substitute for life. 
 ~ Andrew Brown

 ~ Arsenio Hall

My favorite thing about the Internet is that you get to go
into the private
world of real creeps without having to smell them. 
 ~ Penn Jillette

Teach him to use the internet and he won't bother you for
weeks. 
 ~ Les King

Information on the Internet is subject to the same rules and
regulations as
conversation at a bar. - George Lundberg, MD
