The Championship

(For best results, click play, and then read on.)

This is it. The one you've all been waiting for. We've seen upsets and we've seen close matches, but we have not yet seen a champion. One click of your mouse for all the marbles. Internet-Telephone. Let's do this.

But before we start, let's clarify some things. Yes, you can get internet on your telephones, and you can make telephone calls over the internet. But for this matchup to work, we're going to have to distinguish the two. Therefore, for the sake of this matchup, you're going to have to choose one or the other -- for which invention would it be harder for you to live without?

Let's define telephones as any phone, landline, cell, satellite, etc. -- but on these phones, there's no internet. You can call, and you can text.

Let's define internet as complete use of the web, except that you can't make any sort of audio or video calls. Instant messaging is okay.

One click of the mouse. It's all up to you.


  1. amazing use of the bulls music!

  2. I dunno, nothing gets me pumped up quite like:

  3. Well, it was between the Bulls Intro, and "Right Now" by Van Halen. But I think Crystal Pepsi ruined that song forever.

  4. to those of us who actually don't like talking to people the internet has allowed us to talk without talking....hands down the winner!!

  5. Biegs, as someone who writes these things so I can talk to lots of people without actually talking, I completely agree.
