Ok, so I've gone through one of the toughest times of my life recently, as the title says I've had no internet for 3 weeks and just got it back around an hour ago, this ordeal has taught me some valuable things about life and how not to take things for granted, we only live for a short time and need to appreciate what we have and saviour what time we have. I can tell you now, this has changed my perspective.

I've only gone as much as a week straight without internet. Because I was out on a cruise. To the Bahamas.
Having a good time. Doing different activities. And exploritoring.

...You know.... getting some actual fresh air and what not.

It's not that bad, If I actually had something to do with my life I probably wouldn't be on the internet nearly as much as I am

I had to go without internet for 5 weeks two summers ago, and I was too busy working even to fap.

So once I got internet it was on.

I remember a time in my early teenage years when we didn't have internet for nearly a year because my dad couldn't be arsed signing up to a new provider. It was good though because before I was seriously addicted to bebo and msn and it definitely kicked my addiction to them. Although having to use an encyclopedia discs for assignments was grim.

I went for about half a year without internet when I first moved into my current flat. Wasn't really a big deal, I think the thing that bothered me the most was not having the date on my Xbox achievements...

Pretty much everything you need from t'internet just so happens to be available IRL funnily enough, most of the time better. Instead of playing games with racist twelve-year olds online, I played split-screen games with my friends. Not that it isn't cool having internet now and everything, but if it disconnected tomorrow it wouldn't be a big deal really.

I went over a year without internet aside from my shitty phone internet (i live in a rural area and get throttled super quick so i couldn't use it much) and all it taught me was how boring and awful life is without quick access to everything the internet has to offer

I gave up the internet for 5 months during my senior year. But my parents have dial-up, so I basically had a very limited experience with the internet until I went to college.

Also: Porn is so difficult with dial-up, its not even funny.

I think someone here mentioned that they've been homeless in the past. That made me wonder, how many years could you go without a toilet? How many years could you stand to technically live outside at all times?

It sucks that people in such situations are many times more likely to develop serious diseases, but hopefully they at least have access to free medication/treatment.

I went over a year without internet. I don't know how 3 weeks is such a 'dark time'. I really didn't care after about a week.

You just gotta learn to do other stuff. Go get a girlfriend or learn some songs by ear on the ol' six string. Play some N64. Go on walks. Have in depth conversations with yourself.

The internet's fun and addicting but there's other stuff out there. In fact, there's better stuff... like drugs...

Quote by metaldud536
When there's no internet you must have a backup of your favorite porn on your drive.


either that or that creepy cum-stained copy of Playboy your Dad bought you when you were 13 to embarrass you at your birthday party.

Don't know if I've mentioned it here, but I've been homeless. Most gas stations will let you use the john as long as you don't look like complete hell (bring a razor and a pair of scissors if you ever end up being homeless). Also, as long as it's above about 60 degrees, it's not impossible to sleep outside for long periods of time (anything below and you're going to be shivering all night and not get a wink of sleep). You just wake up at the crack of dawn and feel soar as hell. I had a bag of weed with me (about a half ounce when I went hitchhiking) and that helped, but it's no wonder so many homeless end up on crack. There are homeless shelters, but I never got into that. Also, if you're hitchhiking, and yes, beggars can't be choosers, but try your best to get an overnight ride with one of those extended cab trucks. They have bunk beds...with mattresses. Although you kinda get used to sleeping on the ground after awhile. I slept on my bedroom floor for about 2 months when I moved in with my mom after hitchhiking.

I thought this thread was gonna be about preparing for three weeks without internet, not the epiphany afterwards. I was gonna recommend picking up an external harddrive and putting all your porn on it and hooking it up to your tv

Never been homeless but did go without internet for about a year in 2004-2005 (unless you count school/library, which you probably do so never mind).

I don't think anyone needs to go 3 weeks without internet in order to appreciate life. If you can't use the internet and have a life outside of that there's something wrong :/

That said, I would never give up my internet access (at the moment) because most of my uni work is online.
