Describe the internet as a physical location.

An open sewer in Russia.

Take the self-conception of the land of the free - home of the brave - mix it with the open minded stance of North Korea, stir a pinch of russian liberalism, subjoin the simplicity of german tax laws and some seasoning with japanese moe...

Sometimes I dream of a group called "Viet-web" that fights for not being occupied by all the freedom the net offers...

An enormous high school/middle school the size of Russia, but with Skyrim/WoW/Digimon races and scenery. Literal trolls are the largest population, but they're also the most despised. Life there is about as chaotic as the most crowded WoW and DC Universe domain imaginable.

I found a clip that was assuming. Its where WWE (wrestling) fans take over the show. This is how I describe the internet.

My mode of transportation would be Nyan-cat. I wouldn't have to pump gas or anything, all I'd have to do to get it going would be to feed it a rainbow pop tart or something, and up-up-'n-away I go.

I'd probably travel to YouTube first, which I imagine being a lot like Times Square in New York. I'd get to fly around on my Nyan-cat and meet my favorite YouTube'ers like dcigs, Ray William Johnson (I'd also have to thank him for once following me on Twitter, and backhand him for unfollowing me afterwards), Nigahiga, and some others.

After YouTube, I'd travel to this site which I imagine being all kawaii-desu 'n stuff. I see this place more like a gigantic theatre filled with anime and dramas, there being a gigantic arcade room within the theatre for everyone to mingle around and such when not watching anything.

After this place, I'd probably fly around Tumblr, DeviantART, and some other sites that I can't think of from the top of my head.

I'd stay clear of 4CHAN, 9GAG, and GaiaOnline.

Oh, I'd probably fly to Neopets just to reminisce over old memories.

Facebook. Arguments on there are useless.

The Internet would an absurdly huge city split into various districts. There's your entertainment, business, shopping districts, the libraries like Wikipedia/various Wiki powered websites, fanfiction.net, Parks that consist of the social networking sites, art museums that are photo and art themed. I'm probably missing others but oh well.

Right outside the Entertainment district lies the gaming district that itself is split into two cities: The land of consoles that suffer from constant power struggles and the PC utopia with Steam and Origin having a peace treaty to keep order. I'd travel around using the Steam Powered Gabe Newell train which offers an express train straight to your bank or PayPal to feed your Steam purchasing habits.


Then there's that shady part of town. You're told to never go there but the idea of exotic goods of questionable nature, pawned off good that may or may not have been stolen, and the insanity contained within tempts you. Whether you return as the same person you were before or if you even leave is another question.

I'd avoid Gaia Online, most of 4chan, Runescape. Oh and what would be the physical version of the comments section on YouTube

I would avoid YouTube most of all along with Facebook. People just get plain stupid and vicious there for no apparent reason.

It would look like Mega-City 1 from Judge Dredd. That is to say, not a nice place.

I find the Internet is a universe. It is, as we know right now, infinite. Each galaxy is a search result, each world a website. A part of a world is a link. I think XD

So random websites are planets and stars?

I would travel via links. I'd say the internet is like a giant, very colorful and diverse city filled with buildings from all different cultures, including more fantasy or alien like places as well. It even has a red light district.
