TEOTWAWKI....what do you think will happen if the Net goes down????
Here lately I have been thinking of this more and more as the doom gets worse and worse. Older folks like me will be devastated that there will be no instant communication but after a time of adjustment we will go back to what we knew before the computer age.
What do you think?????

Maybe, if the net were to go down, it wouldn't be such a bad thing.

Some people might actually develop a life. You know, actually leave your basement and go outside into the real world. Interact with real people face to face.

What a concept.

This would be a good thing for some, but for some of us it would be financially crippling. Everything I do lately is online...many sites, programs, money, poker, aaahhHH?!

 Quoting: refugee13



It was the same when I grew up.

If the net has done one thing for us, or to us, while it may have opened the world to us, it's also made us much more socially isolated, and has taken the "human" element out of our lives.

So, if the net ever does go down, it might be a good thing socially. Especially now when the country is being plunged into another depression where we're going to have to depend on each other to get by.

If the Net goes down..?

I think Omega will then kill the postman, the dog catcher, 3 hitchhikers, a meter reader, the delivery man and 6 out of the 10 agents sent to arrest him before blowing up his own house.

i would probably switch back to real dishes instead of paper plates.i would be forced to get out more just for social interaction..and woild do more intensive cleaning and buy less throwaways..use real mop instead of fast swiffer sweepers omg my life would be ruined..life as i currently know it would be ruined....

So true. All you folks here who mention more social interaction the way it used to be are right. I love e-cards, sending the paper ones was such a drag. I love e-mail, it was so boring to receive letters, and keep putting off writing back. I spend more time here with virtual ppl than real live ones. I would miss the "instant" aspect of the net. When I think off all the things we have now that we didn't have 30 years ago before the computer age, I will absolutely miss the easy social way out. But you know our world will shrink so much. Here I am typing this reply to folks who are probably scattered around the world, all that will disappear and we will have to look ppl in the face again.
I don't know about you but I will really mourn for the net if it ever goes down. In addition to what I said above, it will be very hard to go back to reading, writing (by hand!) and we older folks will have to teach the younger ones how to cope. All they've ever known is the computer age. They will be in for a very rude awakening if it isn't there anymore 8-[

Interact with real people?

*gasp*... I'd have to go out and hear the neighbours complain about dogs, cats, leaves, noise, kids, cars, etc.

There's more doom out there than in here.
