Live Without the Internet? Are You Crazy!
Live Without the Internet? Are You Crazy!

I think I can say without a doubt that most of us would have a pretty rough time if we lost internet capabilities; no smartphone, no Facebook, no YouTube, no Netflix. What would we do for entertainment?! How did we ever live without it! Why don’t you ask you the 15% of Americans who still don’t use it. A study out yesterday from the Pew Research Center’s Internet Project shows that some 15 percent of American adults don’t use the Internet. Among them, 34 percent say they are, “not interested, do not want to use it, or have no need for it” and 32 percent say it’s “difficult or frustrating” to go online, that they are physically unable, or that they worry about security issues, such as spam, spyware and hackers. Those 65 and older make up nearly half of non-Internet users. I have to say, I bet there is a freedom and peace that comes from disconnecting. All of the choas of constantly keeping up with everyone and everything from what your husband’s cousin ate for breakfast to the latest Miley Cyrus drama gets a bit draining, BUT, there is no way I could ever go more than a few days without my beloved connection to the world wide web.
