Christian's and Scott's Interactive Top Ten List

Top Ten Signs Your 5 Year Old Knows More About the Internet Than You Do

(submitted by TRHeady)

10. You just discovered that the screen name you wanted to use on AOL belongs to your 5-year old. (Oops I did it again.)
9. When you call tech support they ask you to put your 5 year old on the phone so they can get things working again. (Sarah)
8. You connect to AOL on a 3-year old Presario you bought at CompUSA. He's running Linux, owns space at a server farm, and sub-lets internet service to the 4 year olds he met at swim class. (Laffman)
7. You're teaching her to tie her shoes. She's teaching you how intellectual property works. (Laffman)
6. The net filter that you installed now only keeps you from accessing your work site. (Just a fad)
5. When you told her she misspelled 'pearl', she pointed out that she was spelling the programming language, not the jewelery.... (Oops I did it again.)
4. is now your homepage....and you can't figure out how to change it. (srp)
3. Your kid erases all those "naughty" sites you visited last night so mommy won't see them. (LittleOne)
2. He installs parental controls on your computer to protect you from inappropriate content. (Geoduck)
1. While the little tyke has accumulated many MP3 files, you still wonder how that little guy who lives in your computer knows that "you've got mail!" (some guy in MI)
