Guardian called Tim Berners Lee the "founder of the internet". 🤦‍♂️

1. The internet isn't an establishment to be founded. One doesn't found the electricity grid for example.
2. Tim Berners Lee invented the World Wide Web, not the internet. Lookup Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn who invented TCP/IP. Though that's more important, it doesn't qualify as inventing the entire internet either.

@js290 Al Gore invented global warming and is causing all the hurricanes. 😂

@njoseph Al Gore has always been "well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed..." Herman Melville: "Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed." https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/19119
