Does the Internet make us stupid or smart?

Yes, kids, it's time for another installment of are we the butt of technology's cruel joke?

What's worse: that there's a chain e-mail making the rounds, falsely claiming that Al Gore gave Oliver North a hard time when he tried to warn the world about (wrong again) Osama bin Laden?

'Threatened? By whom?' the senator questioned.


'By a terrorist, sir' Ollie answered.


'Terrorist? What terrorist could possibly scare you that much?'


'His name is Osama bin Laden, sir' Ollie replied.

Or that none of the people sending this along this nonsense spent the few seconds needed to find a bevy of sites debunking it?

What's better: that a viral video of an assault by young girls is the rage of the Internet, or that, thanks to the wonder of hypertext, we can see the changes made by the founders as they were working on the Constitution?

You be the judge, dear readers.
