Hitler is really angry about everything.

He's always reacting to every little thing.

Rule 34, sometimes good when used for certain topics.. and then there's the weird stuff, I'm looking at you deviant art (which I still love despite its flaws..)

The escapist is about the only place on the internet when flaming/abusing is moderated and trolling and being annoying are not tolerated. Even sites like the online newspapers have comments sections full of adverts, trolls, plain old idiots and just people with their heads so far up their asses it creates a paradox..

Also, Halo vs. Star Wars vs. 40K vs. Pointless other universes and settings..

Yosharian:

Shanicus:
That there are actually three different kinds of responses to a piece of work as opposed to the usual 2 - Praise, Criticism and 'DERP RAGE'.

Also, googling anything child-like (My Little Pony: FiM, Pokemon, Digimon, etc.) with Safe-search off is just asking for a bottle of bleach to the eyeballs. Seriously, that shit is just NASTY.

Uhhh just did that and got nothing weird at all?

Maybe your internet is broken.

You haven't looked far enough. I just went down the image search three times, hitting the show more pictures, and I have to say. The Internet can ruin anything. It is very disturbing.

My truth about the internet?

No matter how big of a troll you think you are, theres someone out there who overshadows you in every LoLzy respect.

Oh, also, I learned that Sturgeon's Law is in full effect at all times. Specially on DeviantArt... if there is anyone place I would want to be made into a physical object, it would be DeviantArt, so I could firebomb the shit out of that place.

Some people have way too much time on thier hands.
also, that there is much im missing i need 72 hours in a day.
That somone actually made a scientific essay about laws of stupidity (http://www.searchlores.org/realicra/basiclawsofhumanstupidity.htm) which does seem to apply.

I also thank internet for converting me from a naive optimist to a realist.

Manji187:
The Greater Internet Fuckwad Theory and Sturgeon's Law are constants.

This. And that on the internet, men are men, women are men, and children are the FBI.

Soviet Heavy:
University Professors are jealous that Wikipedia knows more than they do.

I hope your joking.... Since Wiki caters only to the lowest denominator.....

And Univercity professors are trying to teach the next top denomination.

pffft Univercity professors barely even reaching the lowest denominator now a days... why learn anything when magical google phones can just give you the answers

Whatever you want, you can find it.

Be it plans for a full auto submachinegun, a nuclear bomb that has such a crude design it probably puts Little Boy to shame, or chloroform.

Or just lyrics for that Nirvana song that you have a hard time understanding.

Soviet Heavy:

No, they are just mad because it takes the effort away.

"Do this work without Wikipedia"

Big boys go to wikipedia, go to the external links, and carry on from there.

It's more "to the point" than google and you can actually quote scientific work instead of putting up with Wikipedia's "weasel words"

No matter what fetish you may have, there is a type of porn for it.
You will always find SOMEONE who can agree with you, no matter how unpopular your opinion may seem.
You can convince anyone of anything as long as you use the "Loose Change" method of "documentary" film making.
There are truly terrible people out there and they look as normal as anyone.
If you dig deep enough into the internet you will find you are a truly terrible person with terrible thoughts in your head.
But most of all, I have learned that the internet is the most wonderful and disgusting invention humanity has ever conceived...

What have I learned from the grim truth of the internet?

We're all going to hell.

Very quickly.

In a handbasket.

Made of needles.

I'll see y'all there.

And it will be creepy and hilarious.

I've had profs say not to cite wikipedia itself but use the links on there instead.

The weird part of Youtube is where all the good videos are.

See for example:

Oh wow. I was gonna type something, but this. This is it.

there are more ninja's on the internet then Japaneses history (see above for example)

spelling and grammar are optional

'if it exists, there is porn of it' is both true and depressing at the same time

if your opinion differs from the groups, your wrong

the things that deserve praise the least will get it the most

If you need it, then:
5) If you click the first non-italicised link on Wikipedia, and repeat, you will reach philosophy

Tried it for about 5 minutes using "rabbits" and ended up getting stuck in a loop involving various bits of Wikipedia policy.

Edit: I'm assuming you meant from any article in Wikipedia.

DeadSp8s:
9 times out of 10 Wikipedia is correct.

also, if you have a question, why are you asking human beings? Google it.

I ask questions to a human being because human communication is better than the sterile, lifeless and sometimes misleading solution you can get from Googling it. Especially if it's a bloated topic.

The last time a friend told me to google something, I did, and it took me two pages of searching to get to the definition that he was intending. It would have been far more practical if he took the extra 10 seconds to type out a short explanation of what he meant, as opposed to myself having to bounce back wrong answers and wait for replies.

Here's a truth about the internet: You can find a tutorial on Youtube on how to do just about anything. The problem is, only a small percentage of the tutors are well-informed and will likely give you inaccurate advice or amateur methods. If you want to learn how to do something professionally, buy books, take a course, or learn from a mentor. Don't chance it to the internet.

If you've seen, played, read, or consumed an obscure/obsolete form of media in your life, there's a good chance you can find it on the internet again... that is, if you don't run into the porn of it first. (Thanks rule 34.)

I disagree with you. Maybe you're not doing it right.

Rule 34 has absolutely no exceptions. None at all, whatsoever.

Well to quote ChipCheezum: "What I have learned from these people is that anything can be made sexual [...] You know what my fetish is? My fetish is for still photos of bored women. Nothing gets me going like a bored woman, you know like their eyes start to sort of glaze over..."

So yeah, that's pretty much it along with if you hit rock bottom it isn't the end, people somehow grab a shovel and dig themselves an even bigger hole.

People enjoy sweeping generalizations.

GenericAmerican:

Critical Miss. Don't ask how I know.

PS: I know 'cause I looked. No reason.

PPS: There was a reason.

That I am not the best at anything. Any time I thought I got good enough at anything to beat everyone I knew, someone on the internet would be better.

That there is no argument to inane for people to argue it.

GenericAmerican:
Rule 34 has absolutely no exceptions. None at all, whatsoever.

Pie charts

- Sturgeon's Law where 90% of everything is crap and the remaining 10% is great seems fairly constant.

- Greater Internet Fuckward Theory where people are asshole just because they can get away with it over the anonymity of the Internet.

- Rule 34, if it exists there is porn of it. No exceptions. This can be both a blessing and a curse depending on the subject matter.

- Godwin's Law, the longer a controversial topic goes on the more likely people will get emotional and will call someone a demeaning name like comparisons to Hitler.

FelixG:
I learned that humanity is beyond all redemption

Thank you Escapist forums!

On this note, I've learned that people have no perspective.

Or tact.

Now, just apply a dirtier part of your imagination.

That a lot of people really don't know how to use apostrophes, and that the sum of human knowledge really is broad but shallow.

Oh and you are never the only one.

And I have learned that people take things far too seriously and or lack a sense of humor

EDIT: I will admit though, I do lack tact, I have never seen a reason to pussyfoot around an issue

Salvador Dali would love it, Picasso would regret saying "Computers are useless. They can only give you answers.", I have seen things of that sole existence cannot be answered, only questioned.

BENZOOKA:
There are a lot of people willing to do good for others and share information, just for the sake of it.

Amen brother!

OT: Everything you know is wrong. Seriously. Everything you know is wrong.

...that is the point of view of some people you encounter will have. You'll just have to learn to deal with that.

I just tried this and I am shocked how often this works. The only exception I found is Biology.

apparently if you use the word logic you are smarter than everyone and right about everything without proof.

also rule 34 is evil

That you can not and never will be able to reason with a fan boy...
