A Day in the Internet is Absolutely Staggering

Amazing, this makes me feel about as small as when I think about how big and vast the universe is...

Imagine how many of those massive amounts of files, texts, emails, etc. are simply "lol" or "wtf" or "rofl" ...

ah remember the days where you had to ask before using the Internet, i had a cool mom because she let me use it one hour a day.

but fun facts, chocked by the "Whats Changed This Decade" fact list, only 80.000 gay marriages in America in 10 years, i think Denmark with its 5 million citizens had more, and theres still one of 3 people who don't have a mobile.

The Internet is big. How big, do you ask? Really, really big.

You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind boggling big it is. I mean you may think it's a long way down the street to the chemist's but that's peanuts compared to the Internet, listen...

I'm surprised at you Funk for not slipping that one in. ;)

What really surprises me is the incredible difference between the number of Blu-Ray disks compared to the number of DVD's. It really is quite staggering, and I didn't really think Blu-Ray was much of an improvement over DVD's, but now I sure as heck do.

now imagine if we could get a computer powerful enough to sift through all that data and track everything happening in the world!
