    Whether cut and paste or not, great post. That was hilarious to listen to. They had no idea! Too funny. And you can talk to people through this thing?

    Gumbel the Dumbell still hasn't figured out what the internet is.

    I still remember the first email address I looked up and it was for Martha Stewart. It was the only one I had heard about. It took me forever to figure out how to get it to pop up!

    Regardless if the morning talking heads knew about it or not it was around then. Maybe not in the form we know of now but AOL, Prodigy and other providers had internet service. I had Prodigy in 1992. It was best described as self contained as I could only email people only on Prodigy and if you were on AOL you could only email other AOL users and so on. The message boards on Prodigy were pretty fun on it though.

    Haha, I remember not knowing how to send an email! I wasn't sure what to put in the "CC" section lol. The first person I knew who had "internet" was Ricki Lake…they used to say at the end of the show, "AOL users can contact the Ricki Lake show at RickiLake@AOL.com" or some shit and I was like "WOW, what's that all about!?" Then my friend got AOL and showed me how you could chat with other people live in the chat rooms and it blew my motherfucking mind!!!
