I would just be really bored for 12 hours.
Posted 1/17/12
wait does that mean i actually have to physically interact with my friends?
Posted 1/17/12
It goes to show how lame some people are that they think they can't live without Facebook for 12 hours. Maybe you can re-connect with a life in those 12 hours and go out to find a hobby and get some fresh air.

Never used Facebook before so not worried about this. I know wikipedia is participating in this thou so that's the only thing I care about. I don't watch much animes on Wednesdays tbh so this blackout will barely affect me

Eventually we will enter the internet with our minds, like the Matrix, and there will be no real difference between reality and virtual reality. People will probably stay online in the virtual world because it can be created into something much more enjoyable than the real thing.

Bah, "more enjoyable". Only until some dicks decide it's a good idea to implement "laws" and "politics".
Also, imagine the trolls! D; The horror!

That list is a mess but I don't any paid site is going down.

I like the idea. Would be hilarious to see facebook down for like 24-48 hours, but I suppose only 12 is better than nothing.

doesn't mean that this won't happen again and succeed like obama care did. doing this is telling em to not even think about it.
