How I love the internet
There are those that say there is too much electronic surfing going on and that it's ruining the fabric of society with kids left to fend for themselves with violence avaialble 24/7, less face-to-face interaction, etc. Instead, I've met people, learned things, enjoyed opera... I could list a million things...but my very most favoritest thing ever about the internet is that it levels the playing field when buying things. I can find things that were from my childhood. I can buy things that were formed or grown in other countries. I can even buy car parts cheaper and get them faster than the parts guys. It was to be over $200 (and probably a core charge) and a 2-3 week waiting period. I bought it for $56 total and it'll be here today, after 2 days. It's nice to have several sources and be able to shop worldwide. I love the internet!
