The Porn & I

I'm taking college courses online at the University of Maryland. I have to take a one-credit course in how to look up things on the internet. I suppose this sort of research course is required at any college, but really, I can't help seeing it as a waste of time & money. I took PSYC 100 before taking this course, and I got a 98% on my research paper. There should be some way of CLEPing out of this one. Hell, I should teach this course. Who can't search for items on the internet? The only problem is filtering out the porn (if, of course, that's what you want to do) as any web search somehow always leads back to porn.



Mind you, I'm not complaining! I understand that the internet would not exist without porn. Porn, and people looking for inside information about Star Wars Episode III. Or combining the two, searching for those paparazzi pictures of Natalie Portman nude on the beach… hypothetically speaking, of course.



Anyhoo, maybe that would make a good thesis statement for this basket-weaving course: "Although many consider porn the bane of the internet, it is so integral to the world wide web that if the porn were to disappear, the internet would collapse and suck itself out of existence like a black hole."



(If you notice, I used the word "porn" eight times in this blog. Any boost in my Google rating because of this is purely circumstantial.)
