Sometimes I wonder if the absence of internet would make me less socially awkward.
But personaly, I would keep the internet like it is, but just eliminate smartphone, so people can do whatever they want with it at home without being zombies in public.

I somewhat fall in the category of someone whose income depends on the internet. Somewhat. I only really depend on the internet for learning new information and skills, which I'm sure is possible without it, but many times more difficult. Perhaps if work wasn't a problem, I could get by until I ran out books to read.

Many people would revert back to their Idiot form without access to google.

I'd invest heavily into porn magazine companies, If the earth lost all interwebs.

I've gone two months without it because of an ice storm. (Hooray for living in the middle of nowhere!) It's manageable but man it can get boring.

Lol. I was actually six years old in 1990. It was when I was first online through a Commodore64 via an old baud modem.
I do think that people have a different perspective as to what "the Internet" consists of now, compared to then. Back then, I'd be lucky to pull up a BBS (Bulletin Board System) - which is basically a forum like this - after looking around for 3-5 days. Most of those that I could communicate through on the baud modem were text-based websites (sorry, no GIFs or image sites back then) that were hosted on someone's own machine (so I would be dialing/calling their computer to get this information). I was a bit outdated until 1994, then I upgraded to Windows 3.11 and had AOL/Quantum Link.

Good times... Oh yeah, you're a millennial too. Velcome to ze club, brethren.


No I not. Don't place me with this filth. I didn't have internet until I was 16 or 18.

I can probably go without the internet for a few months. I'd just read books and draw to cure my boredom.

You do realize that it doesn't matter when you gained access to the Internet - it's a "generational title". You're a millennial whether you like it or not (so am I, even though I'm 11 years older than you).
