W is for Wheaton's Law

Well, okay, it's probably more formally referred to as Wil Wheaton's First Rule of the Internet, but it counts for W either way, with it.

If you don't know who Wil Wheaton is, you have got some 'splainin' to do, Lucy.  Surely you remember this:

Or this:

Wil is not just a self-proclaimed nerd, he actually is one.  But the best kind.  I'd highly recommend following him on Twitter.

Wil's First Rule of the Internet applies not only to life on-line, but to life in general.  And it's not just writer-specific, it's good for everyone.

And so now, I bestow on you, some true words to live by.  Wil Wheaton's First Rule of the Internet:

Don't be a dick.

'Nuff said.

I loved him on the Big Bang Theory and recently saw him on an episode of Criminal Minds. He makes a creepy serial killer!!!!

Is the internet aware of this rule? Someone needs to inform it. ;)

I watched the guy from the Big Bang Theory and I agree with his first rule but I think it applies to more than just being online.
Thanks for sharing, I'll be anticipatingyour next posts.
