Ever wonder why the Internet was invented? Well, we've got an answer for you.

Recently on "Jeopardy," it was said that the contestants eliminated during the week would be given $5,000. That's a pretty sweet deal for the two people who don't win the game.

Babu Srinivasan, a contestant and history teacher from Texas, spent most of his money in advance.

On what, you ask? A $4,400 camera.

And what is his reason for spending that kind of money on a nice camera? To take pictures of his cat and put them on the Internet, of course! After all, according to Srinivasan, THAT is why the Internet was invented.
