Ho boy. There are a lot of ways in which a pretty solid argument could be made that the Internet has made the world a worse place. At the very least, it certainly seems to have coarsened the culture, and it’s not like the culture wasn’t already uncomfortably coarse to begin with. Everyone says whatever the fuck they want on this thing, and it’s a real nightmare! People post videos of people having sex who didn’t want those videos posted duh. Everything, and I mean everything, is a gay retard. And do not even get me started on Perez Hilton. And yet, every once in awhile, something comes along that also reminds you that the Internet is kind of ah-tha-best. Today that thing just happens to be a collection of photographs of Luke Perry posing with superfans at Dragon Con (whatever THAT is), and they are so incredible. What a strange and delightful place the world can sometimes be. (Speaking of strange and delightful, there is also an amazing collection of superfans posing with the stars of Firefly here, via @timheidecker.) Well played, Internet. Perhaps we will hold off on pulling the plug on you and dumping your dead body in the Swamp of Sadness for one more day. Oh, and caption it.
