We all use the internet, apparently because it has been helpful to us in many ways. It teached us a lot of things, it has been helpful in work and school. We meet new people through the internet, and I do not know, maybe love has been formed. But had it ever occured to you, what if there is no internet or it was never been dicovered nor invented, what would and should be doing right now? My answer to that is maybe sitting in the couch infront of the television watching all day. hahahaha! Or maybe reading a book. or even eating a lot of food and sleeping. I mean, I could do a lot of things right now. How about you? What do you think? Share some of your answers.

That is a good question. With the convenience that the internet has provided us, using a computer without the internet would make it more like a type writer or multi-media device that can only be used at work. If that happened, I guess I'd just be doing my other interests (^_^") Drawing, Writing, Reading, and sports probably.. I'd be writing letters to my friends who live in other countries.. I wouldn't mind that though

I have met some friends i got from internet.If we did not have internet i would use other ways to communicate with other such as telephone or letter.I would write my diary on paper instead of on my blog.I would meet my friends outside instead of chat with them through internet. If there is no internet in the world, i think i would also live well and happy.

I would be reading, watching TV, or possibly at the beach ... which sounds a lot better than the internet actually. But the beach isn't going to get me money!! Unless I figured out something to sell. Which is not a bad idea. But I love the internet! It's like having access to the world at your finger tips! Maybe I'd be writing letters if there was no internet ... that would be exciting, but you have to wait so long to get an answer! Email is so much easier. And it's so great to go on a facebook and see someone's photos. If that wasn't available to us, it would cost so much money to reprint photos to send people so they can see what we've been up to. I'm so grateful for the internet!!!

Oh my god. That's a thought I don't even want to think about. I don't know what I would do without the Internet. Up to now anyway... I can't live without it. If the Internet dissappear today or tomorrow, I would be like a fish out of water... I would suffer withdrawal....I would have to go into rehab.....

Life would have been a difficult one if internet didnt exist. It has now become the center of our lives. From research, games, guides, infos, education, shopping, social involvement, etc. you name it, all is in the internet. If it didnt exist, I think everyone would have difficult time in everything they do. I can't think of anything specific that I would have been doing if internet was not invented but one thing is for sure, I would not have a lot of knowledge and information right now.

Well if internet was not discovered or invented then i would have been sitting in my room and doing my work or playing with my neighbours daughter , must be doing something to pass my time or yeah i must have been attending kitchen classes , really there would have been so many things i would have been doing if internet was not invented or discovered. I am glad that internet is invented so that i got the opportunity to earn money and chatting with my friends and a special thanks to taki_takaishi for making such a wonderful discussion.:)

You are right that I would be doing something like reading my novels, listening to my tape-recorder or cd, staying more with my friends and sleeping earlier on winter nights if there is nothing that makes me feel interested in. Watching TV is a good way to spend the time though. The Internet has really changed so much of our life.

As for me, if there is no internet around, i will be busy with my cross-stitches, as i likes to do it when i am free and boring. Besides that, i will be busy with my child and perhaps attending some courses to build-up my knowledge in my chosen field. And perhaps, i will spend more time watching television with my child, as well. By the way, with the internet around, i am now exploring ways to earn more online, so can help to supplement to my household expenses.

I would be reading. Especially since I just got Stephen King's Under the Dome! I have read up to page 93, which is okay I suppose, but I used to read a lot! And by now I would usually be half way through it at least.

Given the time of day I guess my answer would be sleeping. It is the middle of the night here after all so the logical reply would be to be sleep wouldn't? Of course I haven't been one to do things very logically. So of course I'd either be watching tv, or nothing. Might take a bath too. Listen to radio, something productive that's for sure.
