History of the internet

Heres a very educational and humourous graph, from left to right, on how the internet has come to being so far. I should also warn those of you who copy stuff off the internet and use them as your papers for school projects, NOT to copy this. Because you will fail and you will fail miserably!

1981: "Bill Gates embarks on heroic and lifelong quest to piss off every person in America."

1995-1996:"Real Audio released, allowing users to listen to halting bursts of static in real time."

1996:"Instant messaging created as a way for people all over the world to interrupt each other."

1997:"Internet introduced to businesses. Worker productivity up 35%"
"Internet Porn introduced to businesses. Worker productivity down 97%"

2001:"Napster collapses. Music industry suddenly profitable again, and able to meet insatiable public demand for more boy bands"

These things are so funny and most of them are true ... nice find Alucard! :cool guy:
