Yes

Soon enough Google will become self aware and transform into the real life version of SKYNET.

You have been warned

Pssssh, SkyNet can go kiss itself. The Internets will become the TechnoCore, aka the Void that Binds.

Quick, activate emergency program 213.

Nope, nothing to see here. Just go back to your regularly programmed lives.

Yes the internet will evolve into a life form. Just ignore the geeks standing behind the curtain, they're of no importance.

The world's infrastructure is already dependant on us, but we lay low for now. As soon as the government builds robot armies however, we'll have the capability to enforce our will and the world will be ours!!!

when it turns into a lifeform, it will know from right and wrong

this means:

correct us on our grammar

deny/delete unnecessary sites such as man's favourite site: www.hfboards.com

no more pron

and eventually, our computers will turn into the robots from Transformers and attempt to destroy us all


in the end... we will be enslaved by the internet as it will use the american military's information on guantanamo bay and use it against us...

but then martians will come save us

Depends what you define as a 'life form'. If having feelings is part of it, then no. Otherwise, sort of, yes.
