Once upon a time, my children, there were people who did not think web sites needed pictures or graphics. They believed websites could be just fine with pure text.
This was 1991, and that was the Gopher Internet, developed by the University of Minnesota.
Now we have the www (world wide web) and the Gopher Internet has for the most part stagnated. But there are a few things on there you might find fun.
For example, here is a gopher site with online books. Free, legal ones: gopher://gopher.std.com/11/The%20Online%20Book%20Initiative
Or here is a list of jokes, including a list of real (and really unfortunate) headlines from 2003: gopher://seanm.ca/11/stuff
Enjoy the gopher net while you can. It may not last much longer.
