I Don't Understand The Internet, And These Viral Cat Videos Prove Why
Oh I am NOT meowing
NEW DELHI: “I am Rahul and I do not understand the internet.” On reading that you probably think I am pot-bellied sixty five year old who still insists on reading my news a day late via hard copy. Well, sorry to disappoint you, but I am rather “with-it” young lad. My internet usage probably exceeds yours and I am very well versed with the medium. Yet, and perhaps even because of, I do not understand the darn internet.
I do not understand why the articles I enjoy reading are rarely shared, but thing slike “Ten Things That Prove He’s The Perfect Man” appear on my newsfeed repeatedly. I do not understand why statuses that I like on Facebook are hardly liked, but that one superficial post on how today is a bad day garners hundreds of concerned comments. Most of all, I do not understand why the videos that I think are hilarious amass only a few hundred views, whereas the most annoyingly vapid material on YouTube generates million and millions of hits.
If you’re thinking, “psshhht Rahul, this just proves that you’re not as ‘with-it’ as you claim you are,” hold up. See these ten most viral cat videos on YouTube and then try and tell me that you understand the doggone internet.
