2011 marks my 10th Anniversary of being online. Looking back here are a few observations that surprised and stunned me over the years:

~ Anime, mangas, cartoons, comics and video games are highly appreciated by most males no matter what age.

~ MST3K, Rifftrax and The Onion are a religion.

~ I've met more Vegans and people with ADHD online than I ever did in real life.

Anything you want to add to the list?

The first film I ever saw advertised on the Internet was Event Horizon and that was in 1997 ~ that evening was also the first time I ever used the Internet.

If you want to get into actual heated arguments over the most unimportant minutia imaginable, the internet is definitely the place to do it.

The 1st website I think I added to my favorites was Barry's Temple of Godzilla. I was using Web TV.

Barry's Temple Of Godzilla. That was one hell of a website, wasn't it? That place was loaded with pictures, vital stats, anything and everyhting you wanted to know about Godzilla and his friends. It's a dirty crying shame it's not around anymore.

My fave article was how to treat your new pet Godzillasaurus. A fake owners manual for anyone who had Godzilla for a pet. Barry had one great sense of humor!   BounceGiggle

Most movie message boards burn bright for a time but once they get more popular tend to get infested with trolls and morons who ruin the fun. Hasn't really happened here yet though.

I tend to have a lot more in common with people online than I do anybody I know personally.

Something I noticed is how a lot of people can't spell or display a shred of grammar to save their lives.

I got my first computer in 1998/99 and boy was it an eye opener.  I thought ICQ was the best thing I'd ever seen and it was full of amazing interesting people who wanted to talk to me.  Now I realise they were probably all freaks but I have a few years of hindsight from this vantage point today.

An online game Acrophobia was fantastic.  A random collection of letters would be generated by the computer and everyone then had to make up a sentence from it and then everyone voted on whose was the best.

I also saw my very first beastiality video.  Rest assured, I wasn't specifically looking for that subject, I was just fascinated by the fact that porn was so readily available I went on a "fact finding" mission.  I saw some truly amazing and truly sicko things, including that one Japanese girl with the large dog with an even larger tongue *yikes*.  Still, she appeared to be enoying it, so who am I to judge?

By and large the internet has gotten better and more interesting as the years go by.  I love the fact we are connected to disasters around the world the instant they happen (earthquake in Japan) but I'm saddened and sickened  by the fact that creeps like paedophiles can find each other so quickly and easily and disseminate their filth all across the world.

Oh please, people were doing that with movies.

So what have I learned?  People have the weirdest interests and will all come together in one place no matter what silly thing it is.

People can unleash their inner a*****e without fear of being identified by people they know.

We live in quite an interesting age. You can tell someone's sexual orientation and level of education from just their interests.

Most internet cynics are extremely lazy. Everyone knows the world sucks in a lot of ways, but unlike internet cynics, most people realize that there's a lot of good; some people even get off their a**es and try to at least do something to make the world at least a little bit better instead of complaining that the world sucks. There's always something you can do to change things, after all.
