I stream my workouts from you tube and Pinterest. So I would have to figure out something else to do for exercise.

I could figure out something though.

I'd probably be forced to do something drastic like reading a book, watching any of the DVDs I always mean to watch but never do, playing an offline video game, or working on my dance practice.

Oh my gosh, I have a list. Everything in moderation is the healthy lifestyle credo...and that includes the internet.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Krisua, I think they meant they would go to the coffee shop to use its internet if absolutely necessary to get something done. emoticon I agree that no coffee would be the bigger tragedy!

As for me, I would probably actually have to go into my office to work as I currently telecommute and that is based on my having internet at home. If it was during the weekend, I have plenty of other things I can do. I have a ton of stuff to go through in my garage that's been there gathering dust since I moved in.

Otherwise, I could work out, take the dog for a walk, visit friends and family, run errands.

I have a month's worth of house clean-out to do. Internet just isn't important. - But I would probably be at work anyway.

I'm not that dependent on Internet that my life would collapse if there was none.

As Danny said, if I really needed it I'd go to a coffee shop. There are more access points than ever these days.

If it was some theoretical apocalyptic Internet outage where nobody had it ever again - then we'd all be in the same boat and collectively learn to cope and realize there is a big world out there that keeps on moving along.

No wifi and no mobile internet either? I guess I'd just sleep until it gets fixed lol... or if I needed to work I guess I'd go to a coffee shop or something.

Actually there were many days last summer we didn't have wifi while camping. If necessary we'd visit a business for free wifi. Actually it was hard and taught us how dependent we've become on internet. Now we no longer have a tv service and just stream anything we want to watch; however that's internet dependent.

I think I am actually more dependent upon my smart phone and it's data.

Under normal circumstances, the internet could be out for days and I would not miss it.
Seriously.
Read, clean, walk, visit friends, binge watch TV, rake leaves, so much to do!


But right now, with a broken bone in my foot, it is a nice time killer.

We had been without a microwave for two weeks and did not miss it either. We replaced it only because our young granddaughters will be visiting quite a bit in the coming weeks. It helps with their meals.

at night, read a book. If I was trying to fall asleep, I'd watch a DVD.

day time - get outside! Bike ride, walk, run, take care of errands or yard work, etc.

If your internet was out ?

The news, this morning, said there was a local outage that left thousands without internet access. So, what would you do if you had no internet ?

I'd read a book. I'll admit it, I need to do more reading and stay away from the computer and my game apps.
