Sometimes you surf the internet and you see an ad or reef or something like that. You often realise without a doubt you must click on it. They just call you in - Click me! Click me! more like porn, a mermaid or those annoying flashing ads that tell you that you'll get free stuff but you know that you'll never get anything or have you?. Especially when you cruising around a website for no reason, waiting for a wave, exactly before your about to fall a sleep (or drown) and a popup window comes up because you are using internet explorer but your glad that this popup window choose to appear at that very exact moment in time.
Often times I have a specific reason to be on the internet. Sometimes I read other peoples weblogs so that I can see what they chatting about today, steal their ideas, wave statistics or news. The news on the web has gotten pretty good even for a small island like jamaica, i.e. if you know where to find it. Well I look at it as of more like the beginning of an exploration. What the sky looks like. what the stars look like, do they still twinkle or are they a steady light when you get outside the atmosphere. The science and space newsletter arrives from cnn every week and I usually read a few of the stories though cnn is biased as hell. But I've always been interested in space and vastness of it. It's kinda like the internet before google. Back in the day when email was the only way to get cool and useless links to website. I miss those days, now all you have to do in type it in and it appears like magic, all this information is getting me nauseous.
