Mom: When I was little all we had was TV.
Child: TV what's that?
Mom: Think of a type of electromagnetic waves used to transmit web sites.
Child: Sounds quaint.
Mom: Shows started at a certain time and stopped at a certain time. If you weren't watching at the right time, you missed the show.
Child: Like at the movie theater.
Child: Was there one show at a time?
Mom: No, there were four shows on at once. But at night they shut down.
Child: Like the internet but with only four websites.
