Just think about your life if there was NO internet? How would your life change? Or maybe no changes at all? So tell us on what you think how your life would of turned out if you had no internet in your life today.. Would you have less friends? Maybe you would be doing some other job because there is no internet? Maybe doing more shopping out doors? Whatever it is think about it and get back to us and leave a comment below because I am sure that would be interesting and maybe you never thought about that because your life is so intergrated with the online world.

It is hard to think what my life would be like without the Internet! I use it everyday! I think I would a little bit lost without it! I also agree with others when I say, I would be BORED too! I use the Internet for almost everything. It is kind of amazing how the computer is a big part of all of our lives. My mom doesn't have a computer at her house and sometimes it baffles me on how someone doesn't have a computer! I would be lost! lol ;-)

hmmm without the internet? well, nothing much will change except that i will miss my online friends as well as mylot! hehe but i used to live for a long time without the internet and my life is something like...doing all the households, watching tv to kill the boredom, chatting with my friends/neighbors if there's any...watching movies on dvd with my husband...playing video games? hehe and texting day & night with my friends and my parents who are living far from me...

Yea I would miss my online friends too if I didnt have the internet.. Well I wouldnt lose communication, but just the fact of connecting right away online will be different communicating through the phone or postage mail.

yes true... communication online is really more convenient and better especially with cam coz it seems like they are just near you... thus it lessen the feeling of homesickness...

Life without an internet is like living in the 80's watching tv and playing nintendo instead of watching movies on the computer and playing pc games :)

Maybe go back to basic like read and hold a book, do some photo album updates, read magazines, gardening and do something productive in the kitchen. Computer is sometimes addictive that you forget to do some basics.

I know what you mean, it gets very addictive.. Especially when I visit youtube and start with one video and end up watching videos for over an hour.. =_= Maybe I am just a youtube addict. But time flys when your enjoying what your doing online.. especially when your playing games.

hello smsky2009, I rely much on computer, to tell the truth, I spend so much time on Internet, and Internet convenients me a lot, and help me save a lot of money. I do business rely on Internet, if there's no internet, i am not able to Email them, I have to call them, fax documents to them, that way my business cost will become very high! But with Internet, those cost is not exist! I communicate with my family and friends rely on Internet, if no Internet, my bill will be high! I read news from Internet too, that broaden my horizon, if no Internet, I will have to buy a lot of books, and newspapers, that will add up my living cost. I attend E-course, if no Internet, I will have to join the class somewhere, that is really expensive!!! See, I can not go without Internet...

unless my income is very very high, high enough to cover those cost, or I prefer to pay for Internet, than others.

Without the internet life would be a little boring because nowadays, most of the entertainment is in the internet. Well, without it, maybe I'll learn to love going out again like travelling.

I also want to travel.. I want to go to Disneyworld, sounds corny but thats only because I never been there.. I have been to Disneyland, but it doesnt compare to disney world. lol

=] I said something like "Please God, don't take the internet too!" on your article about what would you do without your computer. Idk what I would do without the internet. The computer (I assume I still have that) has minesweeper, so that is fun. But I would loose my income from the internet (about $20.00). I probably could manage without the internet, but the urge to play online games would kill me.

Yea I remember that.. That was helarious! I would probably join you if I couldnt play online games too.

without the internet i would be spending more of my time reading new books and doing more crafts. also i would be doing alot more chores around the house and watching more movies and thing that that. i would be doing things that i enjoy doing more often because i wouldnt be on the internet anymore. but i think without the internet it would make it hard to stay in touch with people. Happy Mylotting!

Without internet... Hmm... AS long as there's quality information in our libraries, entertainment in television and cheap air fares then it's okay... But this things already or won't happen so it would also be impossible for internet to be gone... Good thing we're alive in this digital era! haha!

well, internet is my life... If theres no internet, I think my life not comfort, because I cant get any latest information... ^^

Yea with the internet these days.. Thats where alot of people get there information. So many people use to read the news paper for the new information long time ago, but with the internet that has become useless. Why pay monthly for news papers when you can get it for free online.. and right when you want it too.

Housework and crochet. Not neccessarily in that order. I'd have a cleaner house and more crochet projects done.

The usual things before the advent of the internet will be the answer. I will be watching movies. I will be out with friends at the pubs. I will be out in the discos. I will be traveling. I will possibly be watching TV. Also I would not lose many hours of sleep.

if there was no internet, i would probably be reading a lot of books to kill time. i would talk to my friends less often because phone calls are expensive, and sending letters via mail too. i would probably die of boredom. lol.

if i had no internet or no computer i would be making arrangements to get a new computer or new internet service. i have to have a computer because it makes my life easier in so many ways. if for some reason there was no internet at all anymore then i would have to deal with it but i prefer to not even think about that.

Maybe read books and magazines and write manuscripts. I will just do my research in the library. Internet is very valuable and a great help but then if it did not exist at all, then it's okay.
