    All the things I do when I'm not on the Internet.  Surprising, eh?   You might be of an age when there was no such thing as the Internet, such as I am.  If so, it will be easier for you.

    We need to remember there is a great, big, material-filled universe out there!    Wonderful place.  You can go outside, let some sunshine or rain or falling leaves fall on you.  You can walk, run, dance, or simply idle life away on a park bench wondering what life is all about.  You can find romance.

    Oh, and you can read, write, do math, study geology, geography and meterology.  You can become an expert or a master in any field you wish to become.   You can even start to understand yourself and your place in the universe and how you relate to and are part of it.

    Then again, you could become bored, irritated because you can't, at this moment, lose yourself in social media and escape from yourself.   It's all up to you.   Are you an Internet junky who cannot live without it.   Or are you something else again.

      Thank you for your comment Mr. Tom Ware. Nah, I'm not an Internet junky, I'm a 90's baby, You're right about the age without an internet connection in our country. I'm just curious about internet junkies that can't live without internet connections.

    An interesting and maybe a question presenting humor as well :-) Usually a lack of connecting to the internet that affects me most is with email more than the internet itself. Sometimes the provider simply does not connect, is slow, or incomplete. That is frustrating since I interact with an intimate friend through email. I feel like the person is not there any longer and that causes anxiety. One may ponder a portion of learning called object permanence for toddlers.

    Quite possibly object permanence regarding the internet is something more second nature with younger generations than with older generations. I say this as some of the older generation do not trust the internet, cell / smart phones, and their conveniences. There possibly could be the lack of understanding object permanence. One could ponder assuredly.

    That of course does not answer your question. Regarding that I ponder also the occurrence of not having use of one's cell / smart phone too. I know I have a land line, so could communicate. I am wandering . . . ooppps!

    Okay, I have cable. Generally speaking if I do not have an internet connection I can make the leap I also do not have access to my land line phone or the television. Firstly, even though I will be frustrated I realize it is not of my control. I do have a cell, although I do not really use it, so I check the battery level. Next, I poke my head outside to see. What I know not, yet I am looking to discover if I am alone with this dilemma. I just am seeking comfort.

    Next, I look about usually then ponder what can I do? Well more often than not I read, garden a little, or go for walk. And, yes that affirms life goes on and there is life going on.

    Of course if I am actively using the internet and it simply disappears then I stomp a lot, cuss out loud, and maybe storm off fuming with disgust and contempt. I wanted to post that hub, send that email, or read that article and some unknown power has presented cause I 'cannot'! How dare that power have the audacity to change my life without asking first!!! giggle + giggle . . . again a toddler comes to mind with object permanence. One may ponder . . .

      That's a very interesting insight Mr. Tim Mitch, we should really go out and connect with the world if we don't have any internet connection. Thank you for the insight Mr. Time. noted.

    I can still do most of my hobbies when the internet isn't working. I can read a book, make some artwork, play a video game, and even watch dvds. Now, if the power goes out, that is much more limiting. I'm more dependent on power than I am the internet.
