    Hello everyone,

    I know many of you are confused and some even outraged about the clickbaity title, I apologize for being a fearmonger, but trust me I’m only trying to make it fun for everyone.
    And just to be clear, no, the internet is not going to fail. It’s not dependent on one machine or cable that would break and everything would shut down completely. That’s not happening, it’s a robust architecture and a network of millions of computers around the globe.

    It would take more than giant asteroids and supervolcanoes to deprive us of our internet, but trust me, if and when that happens, a working internet connection would be the least of our worries.

    I’m sure all of us can agree that we take the internet for granted. Especially in countries like India, where it is available for cheap and nearly everywhere, people cannot really appreciate its importance until they have lost reception or for some reason the internet stops working.

    The internet keeps things ticking and just the thought of a world without the internet gives me the heebie-jeebies.

    I know, I just said that the internet won’t collapse in the foreseeable future but still, I want you to imagine that the impossible is happening -

    The internet is shutting down! There is no reason as to why it’s happening but you have one hour of uninterrupted, unlimited internet before it’s gone. Forever! The question is what will you do to make the most of it?

    Download a ton of movies and webseries or tweet a fleeting thought? Play the last match of Among Us with your gang or save your favourite music, update your Instagram story or bid your online friends goodbye? Or better yet, maybe you want to create the last “Where is Android 12 for my OnePlus 8 Pro” thread? Anything goes. But remember you only have 60 minutes! Still, speed and quota is something you do not have to worry about. You have unlimited internet with speeds going upto 10Gbps!

    I don’t know what you’ll do in the last hour of the internet but I’m sure you’re going to make it count. And that’s exactly what I want to hear from you.

    Maybe you want to have a virtual meet-up with your online gang, one last time? Tag your mates and let them know you’re thinking about them in the last hour of the internet.

    Cheers!

    Happy Riddances, life will be back to the 19th century.
    Honestly can't even imagine life without the internet. What will happen to Keyboard warriors, YouTubers, Social Media influencers, etc
    OMG, it's like watching 2020, end of the world.

    Precise reason to add Radio FM in Phones.

    My wife will be happy if there is no internet.

    Delete everything and wipe my data history to ensure, if the internet was ever resurrected in the future, traces of my past cannot resurface.

    ... And maybe play some solitaire.

    I will download Minecraft and then order food for a month! I will then make all Netflix content offline. And then, when there's just a minute left, I will say goodbye to the community with some coordinates mentioned and a time mentioned for an offline meetup!

    What a crazy year, huh? You'd think we're going forward, but in reality we're going backwards? Whaaaaaaat? Waking up to this thread not only confirms my suspicion that 2020 is the worst but also tells me that we're going to have a world-wide zen mode! How fun.

    I'll talk to all the internet friends I've accumulated, maybe ask for their real world address/phone number.
    If they don't want to connect, I'll bid them a very emotional fairwell. I'll post one last instagram story and post one last tweet. I'll spam post in Wormhole( @puccellino don't say I do it now anyways xD).
    The internet has shaped my childhood as well as teen years, I'll bloody miss it.
    (Btw, post no.1)
    Some friends I'll always remember if it shuts down: @Tokolozi @YRJ @TheGadgetGirl @Yash Pratap Singh. And @puccellino (^_^)

    Hahahaa. This is it for the weekend ??? For a weekend Internet shutdown is a poor idea.

    I was thinking about the same.

    @Tokolozi I am waiting for your comment.
