if the internet stopped working

Some governments also have “kill switches” that can effectively turn off the internet in their country. ....  China is rumoured to have a kill switch of its own. And American senators have proposed creating one in the US as a means to defend the country from cyberattack.
Strange, to some the shiver comes from the question of what would happen if the internet were shut off. To others the shiver comes from what would happen if the the internet were turned on.

And still the question hangs on the air: Can s/he walk and chew gum simultaneously?
