For scenario 2, the idea is that neither you nor anyone in your household would have a personal computer. You are free to use the library, work computers, friends' computers, or those of family members/significant others who do not live with you - but you wouldn't have total privacy/the comfort of your own home.

I'd do it, but not for that amount. I'm too much of a greedy bastard.

eh We ve got plenty of internet places around, I havent got a problem I d do it for less money. My mobile phone is about 8 years old so hasnt got the modern internet on it anyways, I used to live for a while without a i net capable computer and it didnt harm me and I also took about 2 or 3 months till i finally got the dish for the tv fixed so that I had tv.

considering that $100,000 is over 2x my current yearly salary, I would totally do it & use my new found free time to work on the many projects that I would like to get done.

I would not do it as internet is my primary way of connecting with my friends and an integral part of my hobbies. My mental welbeing is worth more than 100K.

i could give up my own devices, but probably not go the year without all that at all (internet mostly). there are places where i could still use the internet if i need to.
