But THAT'S not going to happen.
And you're right. The Nobel Peace Prize has lost all credibility. All it is is a bunch of liberals, recognizing other liberals for their...well whatever it is they are doing.
I also just took a look at the past winners and LOL Jimmy Carter HAHAHAHA.
Edit: Lets forget about Reagan having a huge impact on ending the Cold War...shall we?

And in the same vein, the Nobel money can be divided between everyone with an internet connection... About $1million...divided between...about 1.4 billion people...
More info about Vicente Ferrer:
Vicente Ferrer is a true Saint.

If the Internet itself won a Nobel Peace Prize, it would prove that the Decider has no ****ing idea about all the trash, hate, bigotry, violence, and destructiveness there is on the internet and by how much it outnumbers the productive/peaceful minority.
An example. I cannot post a comment on youtube without being called dozens of nasty names by various people.
The internet, and its assumed and expected shield of anonymity, has lead people to harass others to the point of their victims' suicides (Which, within the U.S. is a Federal inter-state crime classed as Manslaughter if I remember right. Not so peaceful, eh?), the psychological torture can make psychopaths out of previously normal people (Again, leading to murders and/or suicides), the internet is a common aid in illegal activities from child pornography to human slave-trade and murder-for-hire, not to mention rape and murder, and is a very common outlet for various political and social extremists whom hold views from Nazi origins all the way to people who justify torture and molestation of children.
If anything should ever be completely excluded from any running in the Nobel Peace Prize, it's the internet. The evils within it do NOT allow room for any real good to come of it.
And Dhampy, you've got great points for all of those examples. They pretty much assist my argument due to all their cases being similar.
