    Yesterday the internet was down at work for like 2 hours and I nearly had a panic attack.
    If a natural disaster somehow knocked out the internet for an extended period of time (like a week), what would you do all day? This means no playing games, streaming videos, porn, shopping, etc.

    I rarely use the internet on the weekends. Maybe read a few things when I wake up, but I can sure do without that. Actually, I rarely use it at all when I'm at home. Got way too much shit to do.

    I would stream from my media center. All the media is downloaded onto a server in the kitchen. I have over 1000+ movies and 80+ TV shows. Also yes it has a bunch of porn downloaded onto it. I don't need the internet as long as my home networking equipment is working I'm fine.

    I have a lot of single player games and don't need the internet for that either.

    Spend quality time in nature, if you can get fully involved in nature and be totally present, you'll come to realize that the internet t's not a necessity, but nature is.

    I spend most of my internet time on Sherdog, but I can go a long time without internet. My favourite vacations are when i can be out of cell phone and internet coverage for a few weeks.

    Do chores outside. Take kids to the park/field. Play guitar. Take a nap. Play games.

    Sometimes I purposely shutdown my Internet at home. But then the kids just play iPad games that don't use Internet :(
