Would I Survive No Internet for a Whole Month?

[I’m trying out this Plinky thing…so let’s see how it goes! It’s supposed to “cure” writer’s block by giving you a different topic/question/assignment everyday.]

Of course, I would be the one to answer this question with a deep answer. Naturally my answer would be no, but for everyone who would say yes, I’d like for you to think about what that really means. The Internet is more than just a means to blog, check Facebook, email, bank balance, and pay bills. That’s only the tip of the iceberg! The Internet is EVERYWHERE! There are certain things you do everyday (or at least very often) that involve the Internet that are not so apparent. Using your credit card involves the Internet. Did you think of that? Yeah! Whether you buy gas at the pump or inside, groceries, or purchase whatever, you are using the Internet. How do you think the information gets linked back to your account? You may pay with cash, but using your Kroger Plus Card (or whatever supermarket you frequent) involves the Internet. Even buying a meal a restaurant involves the Internet if they have an updated system ran by computers. The point is that there is almost no place you can go that the Internet does not exist and is not being used for something. Everything these days is ran on or originates from a network. And what is the Internet? A network of networks! So, unless you plan to use cash at the gas station (meaning you would have to go to the ATM before the month starts…he he he), shop at an open air market, cook at home,only shop at stores that have old, non-computer based cash registers, and finding places where the Internet does not exist, then the odds of you not being able to use the Internet for a month are extremely slim!
