Exclamation Secret underground internet makes up 80% of the internet data

I never even heard of the the term hidden internet until last night. Apparently the internet that we all know and use only makes up 20% of data that exists out there. The hidden or deep web makes up the vast majority of the internet and is not indexed by conventional search engines or accessible through regular internet browsers.

I've been reading up on it and it is really intriguing me and scaring me at the same time. I am sure most of it is just useless complied information that no one cares about. But I feel like Alice who just tumbled down the rabbit's hole. You could read more about it on here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invisible_Web

Wow, now I'm curious what's on the deep web!!! I wonder if part of it is things like medical records, or top secret government information, I see what you mean about the rabbit hole feeling, it also kinda makes me think about the matrix. As if our reality of what the internet is, is what someone else wants us to know. Hmmm I wonder....."red pill, or blue pill?"(movie reference)

failure is an event, not a person. You are not a failure.

My feelings exactly. Apparently all the recent stuff on wikileaks was available for months or even years prior on the 'deep web'. I read some posts saying basically the hidden web consists of everything from old university findings to government cache and even international human trafficking rings. Some crazy ****.

Well you can surf it. I haven't tried yet but I am tempted. You can easily find out how just by googling hidden or deep web for starters. I wish never even found out about it. The curiosity is killing me. They advise it is not for novices since it can be less secure and if you don't know what you are doing you could be a target for attack sites or hackers.

I've heard of this before and have considered using tor but I wasn't sure it was worth it. Seems like the deep web is filled with either child porn or purchasing illegal drugs and firearms. Since most of us, I assume are not in china, where everything is censored and require the use of tor to access parts of the Internet we all take for granted, is there any reason the average Joe would need to use tor for?

I've also heard of silkroad (eBay of drugs) allowed you to purchase drugs in an anonymous way through use of bitcoins. Anyone ever heard of this or tried it out?

I've also read that through using bitcoins you could purchase anything with anonymity such as hits on people. Seems interesting but once again not sure of the usefulness for the everyday person.

Yeah the same thing happened when all of a sudden 4chan was suddenly popular. Even if you do go in, you wouldn't really do much...unless you actually do order a human off a human trafficking site? I don't know there doesn't seem much point in trying to go into it unless you want something illegal, wake up man you're not going to be Neo, it's just a bunch of criminals making money the wrong way.

I am a bit of a conspiracy theory nut. I love reading about it and crazy government experiments like project mkultra where the CIA kidnapped a bunched of people and experimented on them while megadosing them on lsd. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_MKULTRA

I heard that you could find 100x more information on the government in the deep web than on sites like wikipedia or wikileaks. That's what I want to use it for. I don't need to buy drugs, set up assassinations or watch illegal porn. I just want to read up on crazy ****.

Yeah, I know... but they say curiosity kills the cat. I downloaded Tor awhile ago but I'm not versed enough to know how to protect myself, so I resisted that urge. What I don't know won't kill me, I guess... except the light of an oncoming freight train.

But I'd still like to see...

I fly the beast made of steel,
Thick knives that cut the night,
Gas tank is filled with vengeance,
Machine guns shooting spite,
Can't find the thing that makes this,
Thing take a hard turn right,
I follow where it leads me,
Blind bats with wings of might,

You, will most likely die,
From the hands of my arm,
When I come and fly and,
Take off your face,
With the front of my hatredcopter.

How intriguing... I thought I had actually found something when I found a drug selling/bombmaking/general criminal activity forum. Guess not, since I found it through Google.

Now I want to know what's there as well...

50mg Sertraline has made me a decently capable person again. Meds...

Comics I'm reading:
Lazarus 2/2
Nowhere Men 4/4
Jupiter's Legacy 2/2
East of West 4/4
Saga 7/12

Huge Image and Brian K. Vaughan fan. Hmu with recs if you want

The deepweb is pretty much filled with child porn and drug sellers. You will occasionally find scientific articles being disseminated and distributed by teams of scientists, and also alot of goverment dissidents (like from Iran and China) organize their political activities there because its do difficult to trace them. So it's sort of a double edged blade....used for both good and evil. Also alot of the Lulsec guys and 4chan raids are organized there like before a DDoS operation on a certain target, etc.

Waste not fresh tears over old griefs. ~Euripides

Not being judgemental, or giving advice.

But this is so easy for me, I'm not touching it with a ten foot pole.

Is that the saying?


Anyways, it's interesting, but I will leave it to somebody else.

You really don't want to know that unless you want to lose nights of sleep. Apparently **** gets real the deeper you go.

I think just idea that there was a whole another world that you never even knew existed which was right under your nose is what is so intriguing about it. In reality it's probably not that exciting or mysterious. I've been thinking about this all day.
