    What would you do if the internet crashed for good? Would you get used to life with less communication and less "being connected" or would you be pretty bummed for the rest of your life?

    This is assuming it was not fixed. Perhaps some largescale EMP attack or something that crippled it for the next 50+ years or so.

    Hi,

    Weird but interesting thought!

    I think for initial few days it will be a problem but as humans are made to adapt so they will quickly learn how to live without effective communication and after some time it will be the default way of living as we use to live a decade or 2 back.

    Cheers,

    If the internet went down for good, I would at first be dissapointed that I will have lost conntact with some very good online friends.
    However I wouldnt cease to live because there is no internet, as I am able to live without it. Yes it may take some time to adjust, but I would.

    I would maybe even feel relieved! Sometimes I think life must have been simpler before we all had to worry about everything across the entire world everyday.
