What should I do if the internet goes down?

Begin obsessively cleaning and sorting through piles of work, books, magazines, cds, dvds, clothes, shoes, makeup, vitamins, people, food, or anything containing two or more similar type items plus stop craving twizzlers and jellybellies. In other words go back to the way you used to be.

If the internet goes down on you, just enjoy it.

No problem! I just buy The Portable Alexa Crawl, and the Intarweb becomes my hard disk!

Oh, you meant "what to do if your personal Internet connection goes down." If the whole net itself went down, there'd be a whole lot more going on than installing a game or whatnot.

I think my porn stockpile is more than adequate to pull me through.

Now, if my hard drive crashed? Then I'm screwed.

Great! Let me bookmark this link so I can refer back to it when the need arises...

What? No problem! I've got the whole thing on CD anyway. (obscure reference to previous posts about support desk nightmares and ridiculous client requests and stupid business models and . . . . can we be done with those posts now?)

They forgot:

11. Experience traumatic sense of being cut off from friends, intelligent conversation, and civilization; fall into deep and profound depression; curl up in fœtal position; etc.

That'd be me, anyway.

Is this "Internet" something I would need a TV to know about?
