what would you be doing if you weren't on the internet right now?

i have this vivid, not-too-secret fantasy that peak oil will happen and pass in my near future, that we'll run out and things will shut down, and we'll be bound to survive "without."  none of the modern conveniences we've grown so quickly to depend on ~ including phones, and computers.  we'll have chickens and goats in our backyard, and a network of survivalists who will reawaken an age of craftsmanship, art, and living day-by-day b/c there's just no other way to do it.  all of the skills i have honed will finally have a purpose and my interests will finally be useful.

i sure as hell wouldn't have been sitting at this computer for hours eavesdropping on other people's lives via the internet.
