    Can you really call it "privacy" if you are intentionally broadcasting it to everyone you`ve befriended online? I, personally, don`t miss that kind of "privacy" as I don`t post private details to a public account. I do miss enjoying porn and Tom Cruise, though. In that order.

    That`s it, I`m done using the internet. Right after I click some more links here, check my bank balance, order a pizza, and surf for some porn.

    I would agree with "jumper4saken". My first thought was knowledge. Nothing spreads misinformation faster than the Internet. All those 25 weird fact was that go around with only one real fact on them. And don`t get me started on Wikipedia.

    I have one:common sense. Goes along with misinformation. People take what they hear online or even on t.v. for that matter as pure, unadultrated truth. This is true sometimes, unless your watching FOX (hahahahaha). For instance, that whole 2012 crap is ridiculous. I watched a documentry on how it is 100% false, or mostly. The poles are shifting, but it takes awhile. We do eventually line up with the middle of the milky way; every 30 million years. Do some research from valid, unbiased sources before you believe what you see/hear. This world is full of enough bad stuff and stuff to fear. We need to just live.

    I clicked on this, hoping it would be from Cracked.com - instead I got some unfunny article without any good jokes in it. Cracked.com is great - their writers are so funny I literally laugh out loud (I don`t just say "LOL" I actually do it). This article had comedy potential but poor execution. Needed a writer who had some good jokes up his or her sleeve

    Especially the privacy one.

    I`ve only ever had 3 or 4 of my co-workers added to MySpace, and those co-workers were more of people I also hung out with outside of work.

    My manager tried to add me and I politely declined. Haha. The hell she`s gonna know why I`m calling in Sunday mornings.

    This list is wrong. The internet did ruin 1, 2, 3, and 9, but the other 5 are actually just in a new media. These guys were just filling space by adding them to this list.

    9 The "phenomenon" was huge 10 years ago
    8 Yeah and good luck finding friends that share your exact preferences in show, volume and choice of snacks
    7 And yet they still spend all day doing sweet eff all
    6 They have always been dorky
    5 I see what you did there but it still wasn`t funny
    4 Any kind of porn you can dream of is now available right in front of you (so I`ve heard anyway)
    3 Tom Cruise dug his own grave
    2 Internet allows near instant transfer of news
    1 See number 4

    It seems like one of those "Back in my day..." type old people wrote this list
