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 went without one for around 2.5 weeks when I was on vacation. That was before I went on the internet a lot.

I believe I can still achieve this as long as I can still use the computer for offline purposes. Given that I download tons of Doom mods beforehand, I could survive a month without internet. I would also need to download tons of SNES roms and GBA roms just in case. This time must be when NBA has its offseason.

Then I'll have a lineup:
Doom (edit and play)/Starcraft (singleplayer)/SNES/GBA/N64 (at home)/downloaded TV shows to entertain myself without internet. I would say that's enough to keep me going.

I bet I could go a month without anything... Other than oxygen and water.

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.
