Could you survive a week with no internet?
t’s nuts thinking that going 120 hours without the internet is an achievement, isn’t it? Five working days? Big deal.

But let me explain. On a good day my internet use involves some practical assistance, some funny and interesting social interaction, some great analytics action for my work website, maybe a fans' football report. And ideally some time spent doing things in the real world.

On a bad day I spend more time on it than off, am stuck in a fog of aimless social media scrolling, poring over boring Facebook posts from people I don't know, distracted by email links from mailing lists I never signed up for and rotating between sports pages, newspapers, NewsNow, card games, social interaction notifications, six Twitter accounts (for personal and work) and five email accounts. I’m chained to the digital world. ...

"Could you survive a week with no internet?"

Our terms and conditions define that residential customers are a low priority. If you subscribe to our services please understand that week long outages are, if not compulsory, at least the norm.

If you cannot last a week without internet, get a business account. You will still be without internet for a week or more, but until that day happens you will feel better about paying extra.

He was right. If you're going to hunt, you ought to learn to shoot straight. But I don't know of AK47 hunters. They allow that in Nebraska?

The Alaskan article I mentioned has people targeting an Internet/telephone cable. I believe 60% of the people of Alaska own guns, and many drink too much. I don't know if there are laws against shooting a gun when your drunk in Alaska, Nebraska, or Texas, such as not being able to drive when you're drunk. I guess that would be an interesting subject to find some information about.

Yeah, a lot of those pesky stop signs and mailboxes are blown to pieces by those big game hunters. :-7

But actually, no I'm not against hunting. I have friends who are responsible hunters. I had family who hunted. One of my grandfathers probably wouldn't have much use for some of these people who have to take an AK-47 to mow down a deer. He thought if you couldn't nail your game with one shot, you were looked down upon.

Who needs the Internet when you got guns to play with!

Hunting, shooting in competitions, or just for recreation is far more constructive than wasting time on the internet. Its more fun too.

JSC: look big sister you've encouraged me several times in the past, now it's my turn. So you want to race? I say go for it! Look, you only live once right? And there's nothing inherently sinful in racing! I mean if you're a good driver, people take notice & BOOM! Big platform to share the gospel! If you have a dream, then go for it! Just keep to glorify God as you do. For instance my dream is to be a naturopath (that's a doctor that instead of "healing" you with drugs & surgeries that half the time don't work, I heal you with herbs & a natural diet) When I'm out there teaching people how to overcome obesity, combat depression, & when I help heal a disease (we're talking heart disease, cancer ect.) I feel ALIVE! I feel like I've been resurrected from the dead! I feel like I'm doing what I'm meant to do. And it can be a great platform to share the gospel! What I'm trying to say is, live your life with no regrets. Think about it.

Strat and christopher

Thank you. I read what you said carefully and it blessed my heart. I consider well the maturity in your post.

I hate to say this but I can forget to be grateful and quite a bit. God has given me a wife and children, a wonderful teaching church, and we eat and are warm. I forget to be grateful at times and just enjoy what I have. The flipside is remembering God can take these at any time and He hasn't which means they are gifts to warm the heart with His love. I am glad I have fellow believers faithful to remind me

Well not the entire world because some individuals don't have a television and a computer.

I think Strat has a good point about luxury being relative and the description is exactly how I always think of it.
I struggle with it as well and have beat myself up many times over what I have, compared to what I deserve when so many have so little. While I was praying just yesterday or the day before, I came to realize that I have what I have because God allows it and as long as one is a good steward with what they have been given, then I think we should thank God daily for blessing us and enjoy the prosperity he has fore ordained.
I don't say this with ignorance. I know what poor means to an American as opposed to what poor really is. The poor abroad would consider the poor here, wealthy. Poor is looking forward to spiced water for supper and then crying yourself to sleep because your children are too sick, hungry, and weak to play. Poor is having to drink brown water and not having the resources to repair the missing exterior wall of the one room shed that a family huddles in.
Yes, I understand what we have and so many don't have. I thank God often for what He has allowed me to use, for allowing me to be born in the US, and I know the poor abroad isn't our little secret, as He sees them all.

I struggle with it and am dreadfully convicted Pray for me brother
I understand,but you need to understand that it's all relative,comfort could mean simply being healthy and feeling good and not being sick and luxury could simply mean having food,water,clothing and shelter,all of these things God meant for us to have.

God wanted to give the Jews a land that flowed with milk and honey,the definition of luxury and comfort at that time but the people focused on that and not God,have no other Gods before me is what the bible says.

Comparing the way people in other countries live to the way we live in America is not wise,those countries have followed certain paths that have led to their condition,God has placed consequences in life for a reason,we are on a path and our people could be living that way soon.

Internet can be a useful tool but I read my bible more before it came into my home.
Can I be honest with you?
It has disturbed my peace.
