i would DIE w/o the internet
ooh...18 months? i don't have a gaming addiction, but i love to be kept updated on what's going on in the world and a constant connection to others over the internet...18 months...
if my ISP goes down for 1 day, i would run to my neighbour's and ask to use their internet, even for a second (hoping that a page loads faster than a second)
No e-mail, no net, no online play.
Probably will have to use an old skool phone with out net connectivity.
Reminds me of stories of the late 80's where a tag artist (graffiti) was nabbed by the cops and the sentencing was: he was not allowed to carry any form of writing implement for 1 year, not even a pen or pencil.
I wonder if the kid has a VOiP phone.
Then, he wouldn't be allowed to make phone calls using his VOiP service, and be forced to use a mobile or landline phone(plus line rental).
Actually, I really wonder if...
Actually?I really wonder if after 18months of internet-isolation the kid will be enlightened and right an online book revealing the great truths of reality?we could all use a little reality
correction : "write", not 'right'
lol, like tom and molly do on BOL except with spelling
true - twenty dictionary pushups for me! :)
heh, that's pretty funny
How is this going to be enforced?
I think with the proliferation of internet literally all over Singapore (WiMAX in 2007 I believe was the aim) couldn't he just borrow a friend's laptop and put on some shades while chilling in the park?
I lived in Singapore, and more realistically, he is probably being monitored all the time now. Beautiful place, but sinister - it is an example of that dreaded horror: a functioning dictatorship.
glad a former resident chimed in..
yeah, I have no idea how this is to be enforced.
It is interesting how many Americans I've met have lived in Singapore and love it there and rather not move back even though it is a functioning dictatorship. hmm...I'd really like to visit sometime...
i have two friends from singapore and they tell me they had a pretty good time growing up there except for the relatively strict entertainment censors (which makes them import a lot of stuff like movies and games). i guess if the climate was cooler and dryer, i would love to visit there.
but yea, they got some tough laws there.
