The internet is down, everyone panic

The Knox computer center flooded today and they had to shut the internet down because everything was flooded. Let me tell you, it was a panicked three hours. People were running around screaming, "I can't check my email! I can't check my facebook! Someone could be leaving me a comment right now and I won't know until approximately 12:30 or 1:00PM!" All of the staff in the PR office were wondering whether their meetings were still scheduled, the phones weren't ringing because the phones are connected to the internet. Students couldn't find out how many meals or dining dollars they had left for the term. It was utter craziness!

I had that problem when my computer broke, or anytime the wireless was down in my dorm.
it's sad how important we think the internet is, but at the same time, if you don't have it, its also kind of problematic.
