Life Before the Internet Was Just Plain Boring

Before the internet? Don't kid yourself. It wasn't more fulfilling or engaging; you didn't have more time to read and think and play. You just sat around in your underwear watching daytime TV instead.

As Randall Munroe wonderfully reminisces: "Do you realize how soul-crushing it was? I'd rather eat an iPad than go back to watching daytime TV." [XKCD]
