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

I'd feel pretty bad, but I'd probably take it as an opportunity to catch up on my backlog of console games I hadn't gotten around to. That and probably replay Red Dead Redemption and GTA 5, just taking my sweet time and screwing around in free roam quite a bit. That would probably get me through the year, easy.

Well, the first few days would be rough, I tend to spend a fair amount of time on my web browsing. I'd be thankful for Steam offline mode and my consoles though. I would be concerned that Netflix may still charge me, unless they were cool about it the world having no internet.

Overall, I think I'd even get more local co-op time, because most of my friends wouldn't have entertainment at home. I think it would be a good thing more than a bad thing.

I'd probably start cultivating a lot of my other hobbies again - photography, spending time in nature, writing, etc. More time in nature would be a big one.

I wouldn't like it. I'd feel lost, but I think it would be a good thing overall.

Well, as a web developer, I'd be worried more about eating than playing video games.

Bad.
Million of people would lose their jobs.
Prices of items would skyrocket since companies would have to rely on slower, inefficient and much more expensive means of doing various things.
Millions more would become homeless and/or possibly die as they could no longer afford basic necessities.
Rioting and looting would destroy many businesses, putting even more people out of work and costing businesses billions, further raising the prices of items.

It very well could cause society to crumble.

Considering the entire thing I'm learning at the moment is networking, it could go one of two ways for me.
1. It would be a disaster and I wouldn't be able to get a job in my field for another year.
2. It would be a huge boon to me in that I and several other IT professionals would have solid work all that year getting things back up and running. Probably a payraise too.
