Normally, I just nod my head in agreement with xkcd, but in this case, I must take exception. Before the Internet, life was much more exciting. There were things to do — the hard way — and much to accomplish. Not to mention all the challenging people and situations we faced before the Internet was created. For example:
- pirates (the eye-patchy kind)
- C.H.U.Ds (though to be fair we’re still plagued by these in certain areas)
- dinosaur-riding ninja Nazis (I would really like to see a cartoon of that one, if any budding artist are out there)
On the other hand, the Internet does deliver on the awesome. It wouldn’t take much to add a Nazi armband to the ninja, plus: robot pirate!
