If the world lost the Internet for an entire year, how would you feel?

This is a board made especially for all you online gamers. MMORPGs and FPS titles are the most popular and are being played online as I type this.

Think about it: no emails, just pen and paper sent to the mailbox; no Skype, Twitter, or Facebook, just phone calls; no FAQs or videos to look up answers on a game, just a gaming magazine, asking someone for help, or playing the game on your own. Of course, for those "online only" titles that you love, you're out of luck for a year. It's like the 1980's all over again!

So.....can you cope with that?

Great! All the lost productivity the internet has caused that without it we would have been on mars by now.

I would feel satisfied in the fact that my game installer hoarding has paid off.

That and I'd be super stoked for lan parties

I'd be forced to be a console gamer for most of that year. The horror ;_;

I actually think it would improve my life. Of course, it would a hard blow to take, but I'd see quite a few opportunities in that, actually.

It really would not be that bad a thing.

I was thinking about this earlier.... a friend and I were discussing hackers and how frequently after they do jail time they get a restriction where they can't ever use a computer again. I said that's probably worse than jail...I mean jail is bad and would suck, but at least in jail nobody would be using the internet. You get out of jail and you see people using their phones and stuff to get on the net and then you'd have to stay off... that would blow.

But anyway, if the internet died, I'd probably focus as much as I could on learning Japanese and guitar, except that most of the reason I was able to start learning these things in the first place was because of the internet, so it'd actually be much harder. :I
