    My water softener broke the other day and I decided to sit down on the computer to find out if I look up any repair information.

    This got me thinking, I really have learned a lot of things from the internet. For example:

    A smattering of HTML.

    How to build loudspeakers from scratch.

    How to build a wind-powered generator from an old car alternator. (I've never done it, but it's fascinating)

    All sorts of facts about quasi-crystals, c30 molecules, and penrose tilings.

    How to replace the drive gear in my garage door opener.

    All sorts of home remodelling tips/ideas.

    Not to mention all of the HT related knowledge I've gained from these very forums.

    And that's just the tip of the iceberg... I've probably forgotten more stuff from the internet than I ever learned in school. [​IMG]

    So, what have you learned from the internet?

    That the hottest babes are at the Mall of America.

    What I have not learnt from the internet is WTF those little silica packets do.

    I've learned that I spend more time on this web site forum, than I do most anything else. [​IMG]

    I joined this forum to improve my appreciation for DVD's, yet I no longer have time to watch DVD's because I am always on this site [​IMG]

    -You CAN have a killer projector-based home theater for much less than you think [​IMG]

    -You can have all the porn you want, for free :b

    -Never tape yourself doing embarrassing things, or it WILL end up on the net.

    I learned that you almost never, ever need to pay full price for anything. We even found my wife's new (at the time obviously [​IMG]) wedding dress online for 25% of the store asking price, that's crazy.

    Does she know her engagement ring was bought at 70% discount from an unauthorized dealer?

    What the f**k is the Internet?

    A vanity press for the deranged.
