Of course six months without internet is possible. Internet is not a part of our life right? We can survive without internet. But the only thing is, that internet and gadget became already an everyday activity of most people. Banning children from internet and other gadgets have a great advantage. Students can concentrate to their studies. Also, it can help children to avoid early vision problems. I see most of the students in a school where I worked last year wearing corrective eyeglasses. I might cannot do it honestly. The reason why I am using the internet is to socialize with other people which I cannot do from here. I am not going outdoors frequently. I will just continue working, watch television, read some books and the bible. I think I won't buy the book because I already know what its contents.

Just yesterday my ADSL modem went done. My home phone and my cable TV is linked to it. Guess what? I just had to reach for my mobile. That's like less than 5 minutes. So if you tell me six months? LOL, I really don't know if I can take it....can you?

Hi singup, To answer your question in one word , yes it is possible. Till few years back my village had none of it and yet we survived and survived happily. Though as of today i wouldnt want to live without my phone and my computer but if i have to live without them because of some compelling reason then i would. It would be difficult but then i am sure i would develop hobbies that dont include computer. But surely i would miss my online friends.

Shakespeare's winter of discontent? Yes, that is possible? In fact, my children never knew the techie stuff till they needed it in school matters later on. My daughters were given abridged classics for children, the piano, monopoly, I-spy, Boggle, chess etcetera... even culinary gadgets for toys. And the afternoon walks were a joy to behold... The badminton racket still holds a place on our wall... And we did meet a lot of people in the neighborhood.

my god, i have to admit that I could live even one day without Internet, TV etc. also admit this is bad since I rely on the electronic products and maybe ignore the real world.

I loved the story and felt guilty at the same time. I donĀ“t really belong to the technology era yet I have let myself get hooked with almost alll of the gadgets that technology has given us to scape reality. I will not buy the book ( though I apreciated the title simil with SteinbeckĀ“s book). But I might start going other part time things instead of watching so many CSIs and being so long in front of the computer. To begin with, I cancelled my subscription to an online game site. I cna use that money for a lunch in Aruba next March!

Wow, that will be tough, but not impossible. See like everything in life we either adapt or drown. It would be tough for me as I had an experience few months ago where as I did not have my internet for four days straight. I managed to do a great many household chores, but I was so fidgety as without it I was going bonkers. So to say six months, I would be like a recovered junkie by then.

Yeah it's possible but it's hard. Everyone will have a hard time adapting to an environment without the modern technology. I can't live without my Playstation 2, TV, cable, computer, and cellphone. Although if that happens, I'd be sticking with my guitar often.

I think it's possible, but I don't want to do it. The internet is all we have now...it's our entertainment. We have access to internet pretty much where ever we go...McD's, the cafe, etc...We have a little television...the free previews that is offered by direct tv every month. The kids watch movies if they want to see something. It's a bad idea to go without some form of social outlet...we're also social creatures. No...I am not going to buy the book..my budget does not allow it.
