I would get more work done, and maybe more painting too.

Or it's an opportunity. I think I have a VHS camera in my storage unit. Like the 70s again, baby!

Chaos would ensue … on a worldwide scale …

People born after the internet would look up, notice the world around them, and find out what it really means to "like" something.

We'd go back to ordering figures from catalogs using snail mail or telephones, and Hobby Shops might appear again.
