    Is anyone else´s lives rules by the internet?

    A storm knocked out out electricity yesterday and I couldn´t do anything..work, banking, research, catch up with friends,etc..I felt disfunctional.

    I know the feeling.  I don't have internet on my phone and my computer is a desktop, so I don't use the internet unless I'm at home.  However one of the first things I do when I get home is switch on the computer, so that every now and then I can check in to see if I've had any new readers on my Hubs.

    A human being can go for three days without water, about a month without food and only 666 hours without the internet...if that's not evidence that human beings  are still evolving I dont know what is, however there are sill those religious people who say it is not proof of evolution but something else! smile

    I work on the internet and I have a hard time shutting it off. I never did get involved with the e-readers, though. Not because I haven't tried them, but because I like to read real books instead of screens. When I'm offline or manage to pull myself away I like to read. smile

    Unfortunately, my life is definitely ruled by the internet. I work solely online, I use it for recipes, creative writing, keeping up with friends and family since I moved across the country, etc.. My fiancee and I really want to move to a cabin in the woods someday where we can just completely unplug for days at a time and live the simple life!
