It’s quite simple really.  Get the picture and follow along.

Stores sell “ethernet” or “CAT-5” cables, to “hook up” to the internet.  In reality, these cables contain raw, unprocessed Internet within a plastic sheath.

You plug one end of these cables into your computer, and the other end into an “ethernet socket,” and a current flows through the cable, ionizing the internet atoms and making them move in the direction of the current–straight into your computer.

The internet ions then pour into the empty space in your computer.  (tip: if you lift your computer up and shake it really hard, you might be able to hear the internet sloshing around)

Once inside, a chemical reaction takes place between the internet ions and a compound called Hydrogen DiComputate Motherboard Fluid, which is included in all contemporary laptop batteries.  Facilitated by electric charges, the HDCMF catalyzes the internet ions and converts them into their neutrally-charged state as the intricate Internet molecule, which consists of twelve internet atoms arranged in the shape of a badger.

These atoms then slowly fill up the tiny space between the back of your monitor and the clear plastic part, and the resulting patterns are interpreted by your computer.

AND THAT’S HOW THE INTERNET WORKS.
