But do you go through withdrawl, similar to what Beavis and Butthead went through in the movie when their TV got stolen?

We are approaching 7 Billion.

Some Rich dude somewhere is getting upset about this... I can just picture it.

He's thinking to himself... "How can I reduce that number drastically?"

Now, you don't even need a computer for the internet.

I was dialing up local BBS's on my 286 in '93, posting on message boards telling people they were idiots and playing word games. OG forum poster.

I read an article in the Economist recently that talked about this. It discussed how the population growth rate is actually slowing down from the past couple of decades because the momentum from the baby boomers is dying down. The projection is that the human population will be stable at something like 8.4 billion by 2050.

Yeah, it really is amazing. I really doubt anyone goes more than a few hours at a time without staring at some sort of screen.
Now you will make me feel old.
I work in the IT industry , working right now.
But hate to live in the town I work , so I have always commuted.
I preached stay away from work when I am at home.
Problem is work has followed me home , and now have 3 pc's at home/
I could go cold turkey , but I have to many avenues , finding a chick , watching games as well as this forum.
5 years ago , null , 10 years ago zip , 15 years ago (no way)

Problem is even in a rural environment as I am , the net helps in many ways .
Problem is the company I work for , will eventually put alot out there , and I am afraid all money transactions and accounts will lead to it's use.
Needless to say I am old school and don't trust my money and accounts on the super dubber highway.
