Well, I would have absolutely no social life. You people are the only people I socialise with, and instead of going to parties/whatever, I'd sit in a dark corner and cry all day.
Well the Internet has allowed us to communicate around the world and a lot more easily. We'd survive without it but it make a lot of things in the world take longer :)
Damn would it be ever boring or what???? I would have to watch more TV I guess, damn that would just suck.....

That's what I was saying. I would miss the internet. But hopefully someone would start a large-scale LAN.
I am reluctant to answer this question as if there was no Internet, you wouldn't be asking me this...
But seriously, i would get a little bored and miss chatting to people on MSN and forums. But i think it would be a benifit i guess....
The world would MAYBE be a little more active.
All in all....DON'T LEAVE ME GAMING FORUMS! :bows:
PenguinousNo internet = no porn. No porn = an insane penguin.
Amen bro. No porn = An insane *SW3D3* who wants to commit sucide:eek: :moon:
lol most of you guys are hooked on the porn :rolleyes:
Id really hate it if it just STOPED and you were told, "No internet from now, in one morning" i would get pissed. I think stopping it would never benifit us, except it would make people more sociable. And internet gives everyone knowlege i know many people who have turned around their whole lives when they started going online and changing their lives :)
Without the net, you might have spent the holidays with your family. In the absence of adequate WWII video at the library (or wherever), you might read a book and rely upon your mind to provide your own images.
When I was a kid, we would open up our Christmas presents, quickly explore the toys - some fancy and very wished for, others total surprises, some of them very basic. I might have spent an hour with some fancy, battery-powered remote control gizzmo, then, spend days inventing my own games with a set of marbles - one of my favorites was to take a cheap old metal tray, invert it, and tilt it to maneuver marbles around the rim, held on the track by the rolled metal bead that was part of the tray's design. That's just one example, there were many others.
Computers, in general, as well as the internet, by rights, offer mind-expanding opportunities for all of us, but, they also limit us in certain ways. I'm an old guy, but my written language skills are probably better than most of you younger folks - not because I'm smarter or better educated, just because I had to rely on those skills more when I was your age. You are all probably better suited to succeed in today's world because your skill set is more contemporary than mine.
I love the internet - am just as addicted as any of you. If the interent were not here, then we would all focus on something else and get addicted to that.
In my mind, the 'net's redeeming aspects include it's use as a tool to keep the truth from being hidden. In the current geo-political climate, it seems, we have simply lowered the acceptable threshold for truth to accommodate the 'net's exposing power. It amazes me how politicians try to overcome the consequences of their actions by going on a media blitz to simply justify what they know is wrong. Before the 'net, that wouldn't be so necessary, because the average person wouldn't have found out about their less than honorable actions. In the end, without the 'net, we would all still be human and venting our 'net centered energies in some other human effort.
Sorry to rant. Caruso
