Having the internet in our home has had a great impact on our lives. Oh, okay. Rick keeps up with the stock market and our investments, and Im able to pay the bills in half the time it used to take me. Is this a commercial for the internet?

This isnt supposed to be funny! Dont worry, though, its still cool and its not just for boys either. – Youre goin surfin on the internet! – What? – That theme. – girl Hi guys! Dads just leaving and mom said we can have – the computer all to ourselves. – This is such bad acting. …have done some of their school reports and not all of that cybernet stuff, okay? – See ya later, kids. Ill be home early. – Bye! I cant…just cant. laughs Its so cheesy!

Whats a web page? Something ducks walk on? What the f–?! laughter Lets start with the basics first. – There are three important– – Hold on.

Let me just go shoot myself real quick. Surfing the World Wide Web. Surfing?! That sounds pretty cool already!

Andrew, dont interrupt. – Then there are– – laughter What a b. And then theres e-mail. E-mail? I heard thats really neat. My cousin has a penpal in Sweden and they write back and forth and it transmits right away and doesnt cost anything. – Yeah– – Thats neato. You can even talk with people all over the world on chatlines!

Little did they know of the pedophiles behind the screen. – And all web addresses start with http:– – Now, you dont have to do that anymore. You just type it in. You dont need it anymore. You type in w-w-w. Does your computer have a modem?

I think so. My grandpa bought it for us. – girl It has all the latest– – She looks like shes reading lines. – boy It sounds like– – I think so, my grandpa bought it for us! But you might get your folks to help just to make sure everythings working okay. Now we need to open our browser. – girl Whats a browser? – Jeez. – girl Its an application– – My three year old cousin has an iPad.

If he watches this, hed be like, What are they talking about? Microsoft Internet Explorer came with our computer. Dont use Internet Explorer! – girl Netscape Navigator– – Oh, apparently that went out of business. – What is downloading? – Thats simple!

It means to transfer a file of information from a main computer or server to your computer. So thats how you get connected to the internet. How long is this? How long? I need to do a school project on ancient Egypt. – What kid looks up Egypt? – girl Do you have anything on it… ..under countries?

Lets see… – First we check Around the World– – Oy. boy Next, countries… and there it is! Egypt. soundtrack plays vaguely Arabic riff I cant believe how easy it is to surf the net! boy grows a double chin The typical abbreviations go like this: .com for commercial– – Did not know that, actually. – .gov for Government – and .org for organization– – Ugggh, I cant even take it!! I cant believe how easy it is to get onto the internet. When you hear my parents talking about it, it sounds like itd be so hard.

Oh, more! Great. Well lets say I wanna use e-mail. Ooh, whats an e-mail? Ive never heard of that! – www.juno.com– – Never heard of it. – And www.mailzone.com. – Never heard of it.

I used to have AOL and I thought that was old. I cant go another day without the internet! – Call me the minute you get an e-mail address. – Okay! And Andrew, we can play interactive games on the net together! – Oh wow, boyee! – girl Bye. together Surfs up, see you on the Net! FBE snickers That was the worst article I have ever seen.

See you on the Net. Ha! punk rock music FBE So can you explain what you just watched? It was, like, ugh..it was an instructional article. A tutorial on how to surf the Net. That I had no use for cause its extremely outdated and I already know what to do.

FBE How would you describe the articles production? It was SO old. That was terrible.

The music is so cheesy and the lines are so cheesy. Surfing sounds fun already! Who comes up with the lines for this? If that kid was standing right here in front of me and he said that I would be so tempted to punch him directly in the face.

FBE Why is it funny to see a article treating the internet like its something that needs to be explained and taught? Cause I guess…I was kinda born into the internet age. Ive always known the internet. Its like a joke to you because youre like, I know this. This is pathetic.

How do you not know any of this? The internet is self-explanatory. You can hand a five year old an iPad and theyll already be sending e-mails. – This is a terrible article. Just so bad! – FBE laugh I doubt anyone learned anything from this. The puns were awful.

But in reality back then that article was probably really helpful. Like, Oh! Internet provider, I should go there.

FBE Be honest. Did you learn something in the article that you didnt know? No. I knew everything. I learned that there were older browsers and stuff Ive never heard of.

I learned that .com is commercial. I never knew what .com was for. Its really, really useful stuff, you know?

I always needed to know that it meant commercial. FBE Do you find it interesting that theres something like the internet that you use all the time, but you dont actually know how it fully works? – You just use it? – Uh…wow. God, youre gonna ffff– Ugggh, I dont like thinking about this type of stuff! Why should I spend the time when there are people who get paid to do that? I dont get paid to do that!

I dont know how anything works. I dont even know how a camera works or a fridge or like a sink, but theyre just there. You just know how to use them. FBE Do you remember the first time you used the internet? I actually dont cause Ive been using it my whole life.

I cant remember a time where I havent touched a keyboard. Probably World of Warcraft. Websites like Nickelodeon, stuff like that. Before YouTube even existed.

It was this site called stupid articles. singing Stupid articles. I went on Barbie.com. Barbie.com. My older sister, she went on Barbie. She would get off and Id sneak on and be like, This is amazing!

FBE Lets test some of your internet knowledge. Oh, gee–dang it! – Finebros Do you know what a modem is? – No. No. No. A modem is something in the computer?

I dont know what it does, but its something that connects me to the internet! Its the thing your internet goes from, comes from, right? Uh…is it basically what it is? FBE So right now, if I said, Hey!

Lets go on the internet, what would you have to do? I turn on the computer and I go on the internet. Turn on my computer and then click Google Chrome or Internet Explorer or Firefox and then Id be on the internet. FBE Well, it used to be Id turn on the computer, Id go to the internet, and Id have to dial. Im gonna play for you the noises that youd hear every time youd connect to the internet. high pitched beeping noises It sounds like a fax machine.

It sounds like youre trying like to talk to aliens. static See, we put this in our music. This is like some of the dubstep I listen to. Trap.

Thats annoying. And youd have to wait with that? Oh my gosh, no. That would drive me crazy.

I would give up. And now youre online. Oh. Look, Ive made it to Google! – FBE There was no Google. – Oh. Ill stick to my phone. – FBE There was no cellphone then! – God dang it.

Finebros And you had to connect it to your landline, so no one could use the phone if you were on the internet and you couldnt go on the internet if someone was on the phone. What?! Why? The struggle! laughter Bad, bad memories.

My mom was on the phone with someone a solid two hours! mimics mom Ethan, get off the internet! Get off the computer, I need the phone! – No, mom! Im trying to play Barbie. – Finebros cracks up FBE Have you ever heard of services called Minitel, – Prodigy, or America Online? – No. Nope.

Never. America Online? No, Ive never heard of any of those. – FBE Have you heard of AOL? – Yeah! – Yeah, yeah. – FBE America Online, thats AOL.

Really? Thats what it means? I-I-I didnt know that!

FBE Before there was easy access to the internet we know today, there were services that youd use to go online and have access to things like e-mail and news, but only a select amount of things were available. You even had to pay for it by the month, sometimes even by the hour. Dang! Hell no, Im not paying for e-mail.

Its so weird that you just didnt have everything. You had to actually sign up for stuff and if they werent on AOL, if they were on, what was it, Prodigy or something, you couldnt interact? We take the things we have for granted nowadays. YouTube and Google is like my life! Im nothing without those things!

What would I be doing in the 90s? Its hard to wrap your mind around how far weve gotten since then. FBE So last question: When you see something made not that long ago, that is talking about how the brand new internet and how it works, what do you think 15-20 years from now people are gonna think about todays technology? Probably gonna laugh and be like, Oh my god, the internet was so slow back then! Theyre probably glad theyre not living in this generation.

Its gonna be the same reaction. I think were gonna laugh at it. How could our computers be this thick, like thats so big!

Theyre on their holograms… like, Hey, Julie! Remember Google? Yeah, I remember Google.

Theyre like touching the air and already knowing everything. Oh god, someones probably gonna like… if someone sees this article, theyre gonna be like, Man, I want to punch that kid right in the face. Theyre gonna be able to teleport into the article! And theyre literally gonna be able to punch me in the face.
