Ah yes, the Internet. Where would we be today without it? Who knows. But thank you to the people who did (if you’re interested in knowing who invented the internet take a look here) because now we have endless cat videos, instant contact with our friends, up to date news and sports scores and last but not least.. people’s *cough cough* free Game of Thrones fix.

But the internet is a crazy place where people are free to do whatever they wish. The other week we posted a blog on the crazy things people search for on Google  and some of the answers were rather bizarre and surprising. So to continue this trend, we decided to find an infographic that highlights some crazy facts and stats from around the web. But before we do, let’s give you a few to warm you up on.

  1. The first ever website is still online. Check it out here.
  2. The internet is 10,050 days old. You can find the up to date count here HowOldIsTheInterent
  3. If the Internet went down for a day, 196 billion emails and 3 billion Google searches would have to wait.
  4. China has treatment camps for internet addicts.
  5. The internet requires 50 Million horsepower to keep running in the current state.

So thanks to the team over at Unboxing Deals, we were able to find such an infographic. Check it out below and learn a few more crazy facts and stats about the internet.
