What would you do when the internet shuts down? I say again World Wide Web complete shutdown. Not even your neighbors has access.
Panic? Attempt to call people? Watch TV or go survival mode? Maybe in your bunkers? Get out of town? or even take you gun and war?

This maybe your last chance to comment before internet shuts down.

I have several video games that don't require the internet for just such an occasion.

I'm set.

I have a library of books-worth at my disposal, smokeables, gallons of liquor, many, many bottles of fine wines, and have taken measures to secure my location. I've got nothing but time

Already have ham radio on 24/7. Even having a multi band radio is handy to have.
Not much to receive at the moment due to solar activity. Don't leave it too late to prepare.

Read a book, and another, and another, etc...

I have about 6,000 . . . so I should be good for awhile.

I have more paper books than a tablet could hold. AND a android tablet full of books.
More time to spend on hobbies, with my kids, teaching them things they no longer have the internet to look up. Get reacquainted with neighbors.........
I got plenty to keep me busy.

Reread my books. Books are a treasure for me. Otherwise, if i couldn't get back into crafting, I would likely go crazy.

Art and other stored media, for one, for entertainment. Also, get back to nature, more hiking and exploring. Develop the land further for uses that will be dire if the net is shutdown, so will the grid be down causing issues with buying food from the store, etc. More garden space, more solar power, other.

Get ticked that most of my favorites games require internet connection and this is precisely what I warned people about when they were slobbering all over direct download as "awesome," then I'd start directing my budget toward books on top of all the ones I currently have a still read, over and over, and work on my novel manuscript and get back into my crochet projects, spend time with my family, go back out fishing ... plenty to do and the transition from net to no net really doesn't take all that long speaking as someone who has gone without for periods on the past not too long ago.

If the net is down, most likely the grid is too. Thats not the time to think of entertainment. It becomes survival of the fittest, and most prepared

Interesting enough for a bump. You must have seen that
cable provider's commercial. Let's get more real... the
SHTF traditionally after people miss nine meals in a row.
I consider the Web a lot less important than eating.
I offer conjecture, I also hope nobody has to decide:
because when the Web goes down, a lot of people will
become hungry and fast. Q. what will almost all of us do?
