The Internet

***********************************************************************

Note 1

Do you think it's a waste of time to "surf the internet"?

It is not certain that the term, "surf the internet" is used in this question.

If it is used, it means to rather randomly move from one internet site to another. This is what people do when they first start using the internet and it is a form of exploration.
