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

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

I'd probably spend more time gaming and less on forums and watching the same **** on youtube for one, bad habits are hard to break.

I might actually get something done. The downside is both my companies are online so.....Yea that would suck.

I'd be more annoyed that I couldn't do non-gaming stuff to be quite honest.

If bright colours and a sense of fun make you afraid that something is childish, then the biggest child around is you.

I'd feel broke, just like the rest of the world.

Can I get a show of hands who have more than a few hundred dollars of physical currency in their possession?

I think that me not having access to the internet would be completely insignificant to the loss of connection for all the banks, corporations and other stuff.

Oh, and suddenly the files on the cloud services are locked away.

LOL I do love FPS and MMORPGs, so my gaming habits would take a huge kick in the nuts. I'd probably just take a break and do something more productive, get a dog, or go back and play some old SNES and N64 games.

I'd be pretty upset I don't store my porn locally.
