There I was a few weekends ago, with a few friends, gathered around the souvlaki trough, when one of my buddies remembered reading something about a really nasty means of revenge. It seemed to involve something about taking a dump in the tank of the offending person's toilet. With a quick jaunt to the computer, in mere seconds we were able to uncover the official title and technique:
Just think, if this was 20 years ago, what would we have done to find the answer? There were probably no reference books at home for that sort of thing. I suppose we could have tried to return to the source of the information (if my buddy could have remembered where he read it). Maybe we could have called someone who knew someone, who knew someone, who knew someone that may have engaged in THE POOPTANK. The conversation probably would have sputtered and died, rooted firmly in the realm of the urban legend.
But no... thanks to the internet the conversation was granted a new set of legs and we were able to milk another half an hour out of it. Think of how many millions and millions of inane (important) guy conversations that have been salvaged by the instant information available on the internet (isn't that why it was invented).
