The good ol' days of the internet

One day when I was in college in the mid to late 90's, there was some presentation of some sort.  Before it started there were a couple of students and some professors talking about random things, and at one point the internet came up.  One guy said that you could search (this was before Google) for "volcanoes" and that the first two results would be about volcanoes, but that the third would be porn.

I remembered that today and I realized that now you could Google "volcanoes" and it's more likely that the third result would be some blog post about how volcanoes are some sort of alien mindgame to trick us into not thinking the Earth is flat, or some other such conspiracy bullshit.

I'm starting to miss the good ol' days when the internet was just some information and porn.
