    Confused about the internet, Circa 1994

    If not for on line trading and porn, the internet would have floundered in the basements of geeks for decades......

    Re: Confused about the internet, Circa 1994

    I was a freshman in high school in 94 and the funny thing is I remember feeling the same way when we first started using the internet and email that year in some classes.

    Also that video reminded me of just how much I hated Bryant Gumbel.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    17 years later and Katie Couric is still just as clueless...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Hah, I remember the internet before browsers. Gopher, and email were about the only apps you could use. I still have my first email printed out from 1991.
