    If the entire internet and mobile networks went down, How would you handle it

    So if the entire internet and mobile networks went down, lets say for a single full week

    How would you handle this and would you panic or just get on with your lives as if it is nothing new or worrying assume

    Or would you ?

    I realized something when I had no internet for a week. A pc is almost useless. The games I play are all online so that turned my pc into a paper weight.

    With so much online now a week is long enough for people to start paniking and anarchy break out. I wouldnt care much about no online because got my consoles for that. Sure no multiplayer but lived with out it before and can do it again.

    I'd be fine. My instructors would make all the necessary announcements in class and I'd get all my news on tv.

    Only a week?

    I'm too ridiculously stocked in entertainment to fear just a week of "darkness".

    Now cut mobile networks and the internet down indefinitely and I'm off to learn make arrows and hunt rats.

    When I was young, like in elementary school.. I used to get bullied on that $#@!ing thing lol. Some kids held me on it, while they catapulted my ass in the air. I then became a hermit gamer.

    We didn't have seesaws on our playground, just regular crap and then the death dome:



    ...we had so many injuries on this damn thing! I mainly just ran around with the other nerdy kids with my transformers.

    Right now, as everyone I know at work is streaming the Americas cup, everyone one would be $#@!ing at me, and everyone would be highly pissed off.

    I imagine internet usage has never been higher in NZ than it is right now.

    Sometimes its good to disconnect for a while and reevaluate your life and time spent online. More than likely you all spend an hour at least on 9gag.com and hardly laugh, how much time is wasted on YouTube with complete utter drivel.I think I would do ok with no internet or phone for a week, I work alot (6 days / 38hrs) and try to be social where possible.I'd likely watch more TV, finish my back catalogue of games, books and buy a few dirty mags.

    I'd most likely try to find out why the internet isn't work, majoring in Networking/Security and all haha.

    I download and save all my adult films directly to my hard drive. I'm fine.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    Oh god, this reminds me of Super Logging from South Park.

    I'll have a lot of ectoplasm.

    But in reality, I would immediately stock up on supplies like food, water and weapons plus ammo. Let's say I get one strobe on that wi-fi signal. People are gonna see that and gonna wanna come and kill me for it. Actually, I'd also do this if the power grids went out, even more so.

    I've gone for weeks at a time without ever touching my computer and not even going online on my mobile or console. Believe me when they say...
