Why the internet is like a penis...




Why the Internet Is Like a Penis
================================
* It can be up or down.  It's more fun when it's up, but that makes it
  difficult to get any real work done.

* In the long-distant past, its only purpose was to transmit information
  considered vital to the survival of the species.  Some people still
  think that's the only thing it should be used for, but most folks
  today use it for fun most of the time.

* It has no conscience and no memory.  Left to its own devices, it will
  just do the same damn dumb things it did before.

* It provides a way to interact with other people.  Some people take
  this interaction very seriously, others treat it as a lark.  Sometimes
  it's hard to tell what kind of person you're dealing with until it's
  too late.

* If you don't apply the appropriate protective measures, it can spread
  viruses.

* It has no brain of its own.  Instead, it uses yours.  If you use it
  too much, you'll find it becomes more and more difficult to think
  coherently.

* We attach an importance to it that is far greater than its actual size
  and influence warrant.

* If you're not careful what you do with it, it can get you in big
  trouble.

* It has its own agenda.  Somehow, no matter how good your intentions,
  it will warp your behavior.  Later you may ask yourself "why on earth
  did I do that?"

Some folks have it, some don't.

Those who have it would be devastated if it were ever cut off.  They
think that those who don't have it are somehow inferior.  They think
it gives them power.  They are wrong.

Those who don't have it may agree that it's a nifty toy, but think
it's not worth the fuss that those who do have it make about it.
Still, many of those who don't have it would like to try it.

* Once you've started playing with it, it's hard to stop.  Some people
  would just play with it all day if they didn't have work to do.
