Mr Smith is a famous traveler. One day he told me something about his story in India:
"In the autumn of 1935, when I was a young man, I was travelling in the northwest of India."
"One evening, after hunting in the forest all day, I was returning alone to the placeswheresI had put up my tent. It was getting dark, and I was walking along a narrow path. On my right was a wide river; on my left, a thick dark forest. Suddenly I saw two green eyes looking at me from among the trees. I knew it was a maneating tiger. He was getting ready to jump on me."
"What could I do? Should I jump into the river and hope to save my life by swimming across the river? I looked to the right. In the river there was a very big crocodile waiting to welcome me with her mouth wide open."
"I began to panic. I was so frightened that I could do nothing but shut my eyes. I heard branches moving as the tiger jumped. When I opened my eyes, What do you think I saw? The tiger had jumped over me and was now in the jaws of the crocodile! That's a true story, believe it or not! In fact, when I saw what had happened at that time, I also could not believe my eyes!"

Today almost everyone knows computers and Internet. If I ask you "What is the most important in your life?" Maybe you will say"Computers and Internet".
The first computer was made in 1946. It was very big and it worked slowly. Today computers are getting smaller and smaller. But they work faster and faster. What can computers do? A writer has said,"People can't live without computers today."
Internet came a little later than computers. It is about twentyfive years later than computers. But now it can be found almost everywhere. We can use it to read books, write letters, buy something, or make friends.
Many students like Internet very much. They often go to Internet bars as soon as they are free. There they make friends and maybe they have never seen these friends. They don't know their real names, ages, even sex. They are so interested in making the"unreal friends" that they can't put their hearts into study. Many of them can't catch up with the others on many subjects because of that. We can use computers and Internet to study or to learn more about the world. But at the same time, we should remember that not all the things can be done by computers and Internet.
