now thats a lot of paper. damn, 1 in 3 human beings in all of the world have access to the internet. that means if youre reading this, youre a hell of a lot better off then the majority of the world. (that is to say you have more and easier access to the internet then the majority of the people in the world, maybe thats not "better off" to all, but its pretty damn good in my book.)

Never type "Google" into Google. You might blow up the Internet.

The only point I was making was, that they`re entirely different things. Number of pages on the internet vs dollars in US debt (under Obama specifically). There`s enough political debate on IAB and elsewhere, no need to inject partisan politics in threads where it doesn`t belong. Sorry, when I say "inject", I really mean "jemmy it the f*ck in there". If it was a post about the number of species of Amazonian Tree Frogs that exist, and the first comment was "Well, that`s still 15 times the number of days George W Bush spent golfing when he should have been running the country", then I assure you, it would have been met with the same vitriol and ridicule. Not just by me, but by the whole community.

Like I said, let`s stay on topic wherever possible.

Yes let`s turn interesting data into things that don`t mean anything...

My turn :

Internet has about 1 trillion pages, if each page was a cell in your body it would fill only about 2% of your body !

The internet will eventually turn on us and either kill us all or enslave us. It`s all just a matter of time, folks. Once it grows enough to become sentient, humanity will be rendered useless. Enjoy your porn while you still have time. The clock is ticking.

yes, about 1/3 of the *world`s* population uses the internet. With numbers like that how can any logical person still practice organized religion.

I have ADD and was really bored tonight so I kept thinking about how the statement by davymid makes no sense what so ever...

I don`t know why it bugs me but I guess it`s cause he`s a mod on this site that I come to all the time... My gf hates it when we`re waiting for something to load and I come here while were waiting, but I find this site somewhat informative most of the time...

So, davymid, you`re saying that the number of atoms that make up your balls is higher than her IQ? Are your balls that small, or is her IQ that high?

Just wondering

Not so big compared to our vast planet. It`s only .0142% the surface area of the planet. Still think the measly, tiny, insignificant, powerless human race could cause global warming? Get a clue.

Printing out all web pages as a measure of internet size is stupid.

So the internet is only 1/16 the size of our debt in the U.S. This should help you understand how much Obama has added to our national debt. More than any other president in history. And dems want to vote for him again because he`s done a good job.

While we`re equating *completely* different things, let me point out that the number of atoms that make up my balls is higher than your IQ.

See how that works?

Let`s stay on topic, people.

[quote]Somehow... I thought it would be bigger.[/quote]

depends on how they define a `page` here...dynamic generation and all that...for instance, every single comment page here is one single file (forums.asp) but the data inside is different based on the url parameters

a lot of sites can seem to have a lot of pages when it`s really just one (a lot of blogs are in that format)

Hey Patticakes! Hurry up and take something *completely* unrelated to politics, and try to somehow twist it there!

I would almost swear you were 5Cats in drag.

What a twat.
