    I wouldn't do it. My job requires the internet and that's also what I use to talk to my boyfriend everyday (he lives 5500 miles away).

    I need it for work but if circumstances changed or had a different job, and had another way of getting lots of news at once. Yeah. I'd probably do it.

    Because I'm a news addict. The only sites I visit are the BBC site, game news sites, macrumors (frontpage) and Twitter/Facebook.

    Reading most threads on MR would push me to the brink, I can tell you! ;)

    It would take a lot. I keep in contact with friends through the Internet, find a lot of information, it helps with homework, etc.

    Once my student days are over, having a hot wife would probably be enough.

    I could certainly live without it. I just wouldn't have all the conveniences or monetary opportunities I currently have.

    That ship has sailed for me - and I still use the internet. :confused:

    give me a million or two and I'd forget all about the interwebs easy and fast (once the check clears)

    100 billion dollars.

    I figure I could use some of that to fake my own death, assume a new identity, and buy my own private island with a high speed internet connection and no one would ever know that I was still using the internet :D

    For 100 billion, I'd buy a private island with constant shipments of books, movies, booze, etc.

    To hell with the rest of it.

    And, women. Don't forget the women.

    Unlimited cars, a big garage and a house all expenses paid and free gas. Wait, there is a check engine light? Lets read the code. I'll just go look it - "O F&$*"

    I would not give it up. It's too useful. The things I would want to do with millions of dollars would require access to the internet unless i had an "internet person"

    Maybe $100 million, idk... I make money of the internet and it currently pays my bills. I am sure the type of work I want as my dream job, would require internet for communications and work it self.

    So I say, a bullet to the temple.
