What would happen if I pulled the plug?

I just snapped this picture last night of my brothers - three brothers, three PCs, all online at the same time.

Of course, this is worth some sort of social discourse about the changing habits of people and how screens (your TV, computer and mobile device) and the internet are impacting the way we communicate and view the world around us.

What would happen if someone pulled the plug? Or in this case, if I did it?

I'll leave that as a hypothesis, and for you to make your own conclusions. But for now (to borrow a too-often used cliche), I thought the picture itself is worth a thousand words.

Lol... the lot of you think my brothers are preternaturally disposed to violence.

Actually, I was musing about what would happen if for one day we didn't have the internet. It's a social thing that we're all kinda glued to our computer screens for long hours everyday now. :/

i think you should pull the plug...

just spent two weeks internet free going around small villages in mexico and believe me I felt like an idiot for not doing what i am doing sooner...being in God's great beautiful earth...rather than a created digital environment online....

next year pulling the plug on myself and doing brazil instead....
