WELCOME TO THE INTERNET
You are on the internet looking up internet. gafl.
The internet is a large
computer network collection of porn, advertisements, and advertisements of porn. It's history runs all the way back to a military project in the 60's. It is a common misconception that Al Gore "created" the internet, but anyone with a brain knows this is impossible to the fact that Al Gore is UNCOOL. The idea for internet was originally commissioned by DARPA as way to gain a technical advantage over the ruskies. It was headed by Lawrence Roberts and the first real form of a connected computer network emerged between UCLA and SRI International, dubbed ARPANET. The first few decades in the life of the internet weren't too exciting for the general public. It was, however, during this time that most of the infrastructure and protocols were hammered out.
 The Internet Today
The internet reached adolescence and opened up beyond the realm of neckbeards. This evolution brought the world wide web, or what everyone today knows as the internet. You access this with a web browser. This important change makes the internet what it is today. It became possible to share great amounts of information and make it easily accessible anywhere. This was adopted early on by the geeks, which were likely the children of neckbeards.
The web itself evolved, it became more accessible and further accepted by general society beyond geeks and neckbeards. The current height of this general acceptance is social networking.
Aside that, it is the birthplace of trolls, a place where people have died, kingdoms have been lost, a place that knows not of pride and ethics, an unforgiving beast in disguise sent from hell, it strikes when least expected and will cause eternal torment and horror; don't fuck with the internet.
