Why You Can’t Believe What You Read On The Web

When you read in this fashion, you fail to see how seriously the people involved meant what they wrote; you fail to see why people would write in this way at all; and you miss the point of each other’s texts (e.g. the purpose of the original text in a book like, say, Life of Pi). If you’re looking for a sense of the truth — and a good sense of humor along the way — don’t worry about such things and just read it.

You’ve done a couple of quick searches on Google looking for the purpose of the Internet. Instead, you get the same thing everybody in this city gets every day — the same story about some kind of Internet conspiracy and the government getting everyone else’s information. You’re convinced that the Internet is somehow out of control and that Google is somehow spying on you.

You have a strong feeling that everybody on this Internet site is secretly an American government agent, so you go out into the real world and try to discover for yourself that people on this site truly are Americans. You do that by asking questions… such as whether the people who are talking about what they’re doing are the ones who are doing it, or if there’s somebody else who’s helping them or just being obtuse about all of this.

How Did You Ever Get Here?

What is it about these people that you’re so suspicious of? Why must they always get you? You don’t understand them, and it’s not your fault. They were chosen as the leaders of this great Internet culture. What you’ve been given is only what they told you. And you know the real, honest, hard reality — because you’ve lived it.

How do you get off Internet Culture? Here are two ideas about how to escape it: 1. You can’t. This thing needs you. If you’ve been using the Internet too much for a while, it’ll catch you at some point if you don’t find a way to get it back — and a lot can go wrong. It takes hard work to overcome this. You must spend time on the Internet. Find it not in a friend’s email or on facebook (where the conversations are usually about whatever topic is coming up — you never know the context), but in something that will truly be different — like a real discussion forum and a discussion about your problems — rather than the chat rooms. It only hurts, when the Internet’s all you talk about, that you’re doing the same thing everybody else is doing. 2. You’ll be the last person left standing. You’ll be the one that’s left standing when the Internet dies and the real world comes back. When you quit the Internet, you might not be prepared for what you’re going to get next. The Internet is a very powerful device. It can keep us going for years. If you really need help, talk to the Internet Community (see here ). If you’re having problems with the internet, you’ll probably find answers there.
