WEB, World Wide. (Werld-WYDE-Webb.) 1. n.
"The World Wide Web is a demonically large textbook with a million pages,
each plastered with a variety of useful and useless information. The pages
don't number from 1 to 100, but in some twisted Escheresque formation that
would probably look cool on a t-shirt if plotted in two dimensions. As
a result, you could set foot on a safe looking homepage for some research
facility, then five pages later be stuck in 'Eddie's Page for Pain Enthusiasts'
or 'The Joy of Cooking with Cat Meat'. It's a wacky zany funzone with very
few rules and lots of packets zooming around at speeds your mother would go
pale hearing about. All you need is a Mosaicish viewer, a link to the net,
and nerves of steel. As a safety precaution, never try webbing while stoned."
