So off he went.
He came back a few minutes later. Another nerd asked him, "Do they even have the internet here?". "No" was his dejected reply. "No modem or is there just nothing hooked up?" "They don't have anything."
This girl thought that the internet was a free thing that you can hack into using an Apple II. It's pretty much what the films of the era suggested.
This was 1996. By 1998 is when I first used the internet. Almost 20 years of interneting. I suppose half of my life was internet free and the other half internet rich.
Which era do I prefer? Well, I'm trying to think of negatives for the internet. It's not like before the internet, I was out riding my bike and pushing a hoop with a stick and whatever. I was just at home, bored, playing single-player computer games and watching tv.
I have to go with the internet era.
I recently re-installed Tinder. Let's see how many hot babes I matched with so far.
Ashley. She's 29, lives about 10 miles away, and says, "If you have a fear of tall people, swipe left." Looks somewhat monsterous but if she's really tall, that's not unusual.
Yeah. I'm surprised that I don't get any interest from these sort of women more often. I mean tall women. Tall women are looking for tall men. I suppose all women are but it's particularly difficult for tall women to find somebody taller than they are. So...you know...fewer men to choose from.
