Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

So we can't "surf" the internet, but we can browse it?

Unfortunately, my job (which I LOVE, by the way, and could never give up) is heavily dependent on internet usage

My avatar wears a fez now. Fezzes are cool.

Reduce the world population by transferring all IQ points from the lowest 9/10 (yes, they die) to the remaining 1/10. We won't need Internet once we reach worldwide sentience. ;-P

Please do not increment my Quality Posts count. 69 is a good place to be. ;-)

Amongst the clauses of my carefully considered wish would be the dedicated minions who's tasks would include surfing for me.

and if not, I'm wishing that time freezes while I'm surfing the internet and my connection speed is instantaneous.

Doesn't say no access, just says no surfing, I haven't done that in forever.

To me, surfing implies wasting time. I interpret this as still letting me use the internet for legitimate research or work needs, so I'm all for it. I can sacrifice some cat pictures and blogs.

Any wish means $500billion... with that cash someone else can surf for me and give me print outs to review of what I might like!!! :D

I'm with this, or, immortality/invincibility. The internet will become obsolete to a more collective consciousness similar to the borg.
