Can you function without the Internet?
If you’re on Fluther, chances are, you have access to the Internet whenever you want it, either by computer or handheld devices such as smartphones or tablets. (or both, and more)
So many things get done online these days. Banking, some shopping, contact with friends and family, recreation…dope dealing, prolly. Quickly googling information, finding phone numbers and addresses.
My point is, we rely on the Internet for so many things. It’s a common element of modern society, and a big part of how a lot of people function. Even a lot of entertainment is done online now; music, movies, video games. I see movie rental places drop like flies. (at least all the ones that aren’t big chains) It wasn’t always like this, but in the passed decade, it has changed drastically.
Of course, not everyone uses the Internet, or even cares to, but it cannot be denied for a second that many people now use it in their every day lives.
If all of a sudden you no longer had your own Internet access, could you live without it? Would you feel detached from the world? I suppose it’s easy to say, yeah, I’d do just FINE. But remember that you would be giving this answer on an online website. :)
