“Things to do when the Internet is down” [Comic]

The justification behind Google’s browser-based Chrome OS is that out of all the things people do on the computer, most of it is on the Internet. I don’t know about everyone else, but it is true; most (99.999999999%) of my time spent on my computer requires an active Internet connection. Indeed, I cannot live without the Internet. I’m sure most dotTechie are the same way. So what happens when Internet connection is lost? What to do? Check it out:

    You left out “Camping out at Starbucks”. Which was something I had to do for about 2 weeks when my internet went down.

    [@Tom] FINALLY! Someone I can relate to. I get much better distance using a soccer kick as opposed to the American-football kick I used to use. Do you find the same to be true? Of course, with kittens it hardly matters… negligible air resistance, you know.

    You’re obviously a sharp, cool guy and probably already know this but, just in case: If you’re within 4 ft (1.2m) of an Little Old Lady (68 years old, minimum) when you zip past at 70mph (113 kmph) while she’s pushing her week’s worth of groceries home in a shopping cart, you’re guaranteed to get a soul-satisying minimum 3ft (1 m) vertical jump out of the Old Girl. To feel even better, I blow my horn loudly as I pass and KNOW there’ll be an adult-diaper change in her near future.

    Nice making your acquaintance. They let me out on February 10th. When were you released?

    Done all these things… they don’t help. Instead I kick the cat, jump in the car, and commit road rage atrocities.

    I feel better already just getting this off my chest…

    [@Ashraf] You really take care of your readers, don’t you, Ashraf? I see that, just in case a meteor strikes us, you’ve tested the Emergency dotTech Broadcasting System. If the Interent is also down, can I assume you will be snail-mailing us individually?

    What I will do while I wait for the postman is to tune into my Country’s governmental channel, CSPAN, and let the politicians make me laugh myself to sleep.

    I skip all the middle parts and go straight to the fetal position.

    One thing to do when there is no Internet …read a paper bound book. Books like War and Peace, and Moby Dick will ease your mind of withdrawal symptoms…

    They forgot Clean the House, and Work in the Yard :D

    I only spend about 10% of my computer time on the internet (unless you count Pandora, which I can do without just fine). BUT – the few times I’ve had the computer in the fixit shop – Horrible.
