Most would lose their jobs without it. I don't think that was the point.

As for life outside my job? No problem, though I'd lose a lot of money because of not changing rosters in some fantasy leagues.

Internet no. Any kind of social networking, absolutely.

I'm an info/news junkie, so it would be painful. I also have a couple bills I pay online, but I suppose I could just pay those over the phone.

Somebody didn't brother to read the thread, work and school is fine. More about Forums, social media, gaming, ect. Although with smart phones it's even harder to ignore.

Already did when I was out of country, it sucked at first and felt like I had no connection to the rest of the world (little access to global news, 0 sports news), but I was really busy at the time so it went by fast.

I can't go more than a few hours without the internet. Well I suppose I could, but it would be pretty hard to what I do.

Yes I could go a month with no internet service. The only reason I have internet is because of school. (ISH not # 1). I'd have to go to the library almost every day but yeah, I suppose I could go a month without internet.

Easily. I could quit anything cold turkey right on the spot. I don't have an addictive personality at all. When my Xbox broke, I simply threw it out. After a couple days, I just forgot it existed. And I played video games more than I went on the web. Still haven't replaced it and its been months.

No. Too much of a communication and news source for me, though I wish I had the self discipline to do it. Would be an amazing social experiment, and I'm sure I'd find out a lot about myself.
