Al Gore claims he did- LOL :) and he discovered global warming, and he got a Nobel peace prize for a slide show! YEA!

No. Al Gore didn’t claim to “invent” the Internet. That was more likely a tactic to make him out to be a nutcase during the election. He also has never claimed to “discover” global warming, but he has taken it upon himself to champion the cause.

Although, the internet isn’t exactly a discovery. It’s in invention. We wouldn’t say that Thomas Edison discovered the lightbulb. (“What’s this round glowing thing I found‽”)

No, Tim Berners-Lee created the world wide web, which is one pat of the internet. The internet was started as ARPAnet in the 70’s. Bob Kahn and Vint Cerf designed the protocol that runs the internet currently. It was briefly called NSFNet before it became the internet.

The Internet was created by America’s defense department as a way to keep information safe in the event of a nuclear disaster. Also, it was created as an offensive tactic. See:
