You can Learn Anything on the Internet

After seeing the Matrix, we all wish that we could plug a cable into our heads and instantly learn Kung-Fu or how to fly a helicopter. The truth is that our technology is not so far off.

Most people don't use the Internet to it's full potential. It can be great to check email, see pictures of you friends, or even settle debates over who played the villain in the latest block buster hit. But, the Internet is also arguably the most encompassing learning tool the world will ever see.

Learning to skillfully obtain information on the Internet is as simple as "Googling" any topic. If you want to learn how to make sushi, try Sushifan. If you want to learn how to install a tile back splash, see this Lowes instructional. You can also learn how to drive a Russian T-34 tank. You can learn to speak Mongolian. You can learn how to hypnotize people.You can learn how to perform open heart surgery. Anything you could ever want to know can be found on the internet, usually for free. Instead of finding out who is getting kicked off celebrity rehab, you might want to spend a little time improving your life by simply learning about the things that interest you.

Be creative and learn something, instead of just rotting your brain watching the latest garbage on T.V. What will you learn about?

Great post! It is really so true.
The internet is part of our evolution as humans. When in history have we had access to all the information we could possibly our fingertips?!?!

Quite amazing.
