    Computer myth ideas.

    Hey all. I have to write a paper about some kind of myth. I was just wondering if anyone here knows of any decent sized, good myths relating to computers I'm all ears. Thanks.
    From far away, everyone looks cute.

    shouldnt this be in another forum? like generalchitchat for instance. anyway, i believe that there was a thread about how the internet began on here, you could call that a myth, search for How the internet began, i cant remember who posted it, i believe it was sumdumguy. haha that sounds funny.
