The Fail Whale. Peanut-Butter Jelly Time. Charlie Bit Me. What do these have in common? They’re all really stupid!!!!
The internet is possibly one of Man’s greatest inventions. It allows us to transmit almost anything to family, friends, acquaintances, and even enemies in a matter of SECONDS. Isn’t that incredible? Tell me, when in history was this possible?
And Possible means Possibilities, and naturally, some people exploit these.
We see it all the time, and one of the greatest venues for exploitation of this is Youtube. Stupid videos pervade this website, such as the notorious Charlie Bit Me.
The internet would not only be safer, but would also be more enjoyable, if the vastness of it was concentrated. Perhaps we could delete extraneous sites…the outdated, the poorly-crafted, and the downright offensive. Should there be some sort of standard that goes up? Should we raise the bar on the web?
