What do you think would happen if... there was an internet pandemic

Post by Mona Lisa »

What do you think would happen if we have an internet pandemic?
If, suddenly, worldwide, the internet disappears.

Do you think that instant news and videos have an effect on our lives?

I think that some things would be clearer,
some unnecessary emotions would make life easier,
but also some other things would suddenly become so hard.......Communication, mostly.
Our lives would be more hard, I think, just because it would be a shock, it would bring some chaos, probably.

But.... do you think that such thing is possible, that there could be one day an "internet pandemic"?
We take it for granted, the access to internet, but that could just disappear, with some disaster burning all the data, for example....
I mean, if some crazy dictator wants to bring chaos, he will throw a bomb on the internet central and that's it.
I don't wish anything like that to happen!!

Speaker's Corner would get really crowded as all the keyboard blowhards desperately try and find a platform to impose their solutions on the rest of us.

Ahaha I think I understand what you mean...
Do you mean, suddenly people have nowhere to put their angry tweets and so they'll come out and protest outside? (Speaker's corner is a public place to speak, right?)

I think sales of porn mags would skyrocket!

Actually, sales of all mags and newspapers would take off and I bet responsible journalism would return.

Definitely for both answers :lol: ... and responsible journalism..... That would be a miracle if it returned without internet having to disappear...
