Inaccessible Internet Is the 21st Century Equivalent of the ‘Rainy Day’ [VIDEO]

When you’re at work, and a lot of the work you do is on the Internet, and the Internet goes down, well you’re pretty much left with making coffee, chatting with colleagues, or wondering what the color of the hallway carpet COULD be.

Such at outage occurred here on Wednesday.

Now, if you’re at home and this happens, you have options. I would venture to guess that most us experienced a lot of life on this planet before the Internet became a part of our daily lives. I would also venture to guess that in that pre-Internet span of time, we experienced a lot of rainy days.

We’ve grown so accustomed to turning to the web to fill downtime that we now need to pause to figure out what to do when it isn’t available. But at home, we can read, watch TV, clean the house, leave the house, you name it. It does eventually dawn on us that there are things we can do.

It’s just like when we were kids and it would rain. I don’t know about you, but I was outdoors during most of my free time when I was young. Then there would be rainy days and I’d be stuck indoors. But no stopping and cogitating and wondering, “What am I gonna do now?”

Nope, for me it was all about Spider-man comics, Matchbox or Hot Wheels cars, Monopoly,  or TV–The Addams Family, for example, was ALWAYS on.

 

 

But there was something and it was immediate.

I guess our Internet outage triggered a stroll down memory lane toward a lower-tech destination. But it has returned–obviously, or you wouldn’t be reading this.

Life, as we now know it, must go on.
