Before the day I found the internet, before january 2002, I really was pathetic. I didnt know about anything, I was an anorexic, pasty geek who got 4 hours of sleep every night, got up at 5 to go to school, came home and had ramen and root beer and watched some Dragonball Z and then played videogames for the afternoon and night. Everyday and all day.

You know, I didnt even know about sex, music, movies, people, politics; I didnt know jack. Then when I found the internet halfway through grade 8, I discovered so much. I finally found out what politics, what sex was, how to really communicate with people. I developed many enemies, as I was not quite fit for a world where the only way of expression is wit. But it changed everything, suddenly I was communicating with (supposed) girls, and understanding how just about everything works. Obviously school never improved until I got pulled out for homeschooling, heck spending 9 hours a day online made me fail just about everything, But hey, it's been worth it. Finally found new games, found out that music could be good even if it wasnt from an RTS game soundtrack.

Without you guys, I dont know what I'd be doing now. I'd have no sense of the world, no understanding, no knowledge o f sex, or the dark side of life.

Thanks internet, it's been a life changing 3 years. Perhaps, to put this thread to use, you can explain what you might be like if you never found the internet, or how you would turn out.

i first discovered the internet in 7th grade or something, in middle school. it wasnt untill a year or two later when i learned that the internet was more than just a ceaseless busy signal.

Hey, in this shitty world filled with people who should never have been parents and people who barely know what vegetation feels like under their feet save for their own manicured lawns or the scraggy weeds that grow beside their trailer..it's inevitable children will find any damn way they can to have their questions answered and to see more of what life has to offer via any means necessary.

I am, purportedlly, female.

The Internet exposed me to atheism and certainly helped sculpt many of my philosophic and political leanings, but it's gotten more and more boring the older I've gotten.

That's because you've gotten taller and can now see around the sides of your computer to the green pastures beyond. Plus most people are just shitfuck boring these days, and all the slick websites get on my nerves.

I think, if I remember correctly, that my parents got the internet when I was twelve. From then, until I was around fifteen all it really did was supply pornography and dirty jokes.

Then I met a guy who did web design and funnt articles (His site here) made me want to start doing web design for myself.(I knew people from my parents church (Troy, Bj and Pete) Who helped me in so many ways.) So basically the internet taught me a lot of coding languages, some of which I am still learning and some I plan on learning later on.

I built websites and what not from around the age of fifteen to now. The one thing I've learned from that is You cant appease or appeal to everyone.

I also met some amazing people over the years. Made some friends, not so much enemies. Just people that don't give a shit about me.

I can truely say this website motivated me to become more concerned with my grammar, as well as my spelling. Which has only bettered my vocabulary both on and off-line.

I currently operate a website. If you'd like to check it out just visit my profile.kekeke u give soj???

"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed - Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, 'It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.'"

The internet has hastened my downward spiral into debauchery and depravity.

It's also good for news, recipes, and sports recaps.
