Why the Internet Is Like a Vagina

  • The more people use it the bigger it gets.
  • If you play with it too much you can go blind.
  • You wouldn't *believe* the things people put in there!
  • Some people think they know how to move around in it, but they really can't interface.
  • In the long-distant past, its only purpose was to recieve 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.
  • You think you're just playing around, but you can get involved in something that takes nine months to finish.
  • The part you see is actually just the front end of a very complicated system.
  • 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 think that those who don't have it are somehow inferior.
  • 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 G of those who don't have it spend all their time trying to access 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.
  • Some people believe in security and avoiding penetration but others believe it should be open to all comers.
  • Both are subject to hardware dongles.
