    Without the Internet I could go for years.
    I got my PC y2004 and Internet 2 or 3y later and I did just fine without it.

    Now I think I would be much more productive without the Internet since there would be nothing to distract me.

    No, I just know a large percentage of this generations youth does. It's not a parenting problem it's just how the world is now. The internet is the new arcade, it's even bigger. It's insane how the world changes, if I was born ten years earlier I would be so much more productive.

    Much better than electricity, or air condition, or decent ways to store foods. For sure, as cool as landing on the moon.

    When were you born ? Early 90s ? If ten years earlier we would probably not even know how to work a comp haha (at least my dad doesnt)

    But I see your point now =)

    what.
    My cousin is exactly 32, he wasnt without work (ever) + has a wife + pets + house with garden and stuff
    he was always playing video games. I can confirm n64/ps1,ps2, guild wars and now lotr (latter ones in a big guild with set raids...)

    It's just a question of how you prioritize things (that guy was partying hardcore for more than a decade...)
    If internet wasnt there, we would gather in person to watch/drink/game.
    Now we are skyping and gaming. doesnt make that much of a difference but the gaming quality improves.

    ^using CHROME now
