    Ok, impossible hypothetical question time.

    Would you rather:

    1. Never get in a vehicle again ever?
    2. Never surf the web again ever?
    I know it's not a fun question.

    So essentially would you be happy riding a bike everywhere if it meant you could still use the internet?

    Otherwise you can drive places but no internet.

    Make your choice! :D

    EXQEX9 Yep.

    Fuck that, my life would be pointless if i could only go places with a bike. That would destroy my income, whereas never coming on the net again would...well...i wouldnt lose money.

    Does using a company intranet count as surfing the web?

    Intranet is not the same as the web so no.

    I wouldn't be able to give up either of them. I'd miss the hell out of some of the members here.

    Plus I need a ride to places. My work is too far for me to ride a bike.

    EXQEX9 Yep.

    Wait, what?

    Whats the difference?

    I suppose that 'web' is short for 'world wide web', whereas an intranet is a private network. Although, many private networks can be accessed via the web, so doing as much would seem to count as surfing the web, even if every use of a private network wouldn't.

    Well it's likely that none of us will ever be faced with this question for real.. But yes you are right lol.

    For the sake of the question, accessing private networks doesn't count as surfing the web, just as long as those private networks aren't used to connect to the web and surf... which DOES count as surfing the web.

    I suppose I'm in a similar but opposite boat than EX is. I can and have compensating for not having a license, even if urban sprawl makes it difficult in most places. On the other hand, the careers I'm looking to pursue pretty much require that I be able to access the internet.

    Yeah. I'd have to take the no vehicles approach as well.

    I wonder if airplanes would be considered vehicles?
