My dad thinks the Internet is useless

Basically we are having issues with the internet at the moment and possibly the next few months, the idiot decided to say "Well after you have done your course we can get rid of the internet because its rubbish and we can buy better things". He completely ignores the fact that I do a home based game testing which requires an internet connection or searching for a job and because HE doesn't use it then its pointless to have it because it does nothing for HIM. In case you haven't noticed everything is about him and -blam!- everybody else including his family. So, do you think you could really buy something better than an internet connection in today's world or is the internet the most important thing anybody can own?

          • Let me summarize this: "Weh, my dad pays for a service that he doesn't use and wants to cancel it but I use it for gaming and not a job and instead of contributing to it, I'm just going to whine because things aren't going my way! My dad is so stupid!"

              Well, food is more important, so is water, and in fact a house is more important too! Don't forget about cloths. Why not toss in air for good measure. We also all need to go to the bathroom, and need a bed to sleep in.

                The Internet is becoming more of s necessity by the day. Sure, there are other places you can go to get access, but just because there's a phone at the end of the street, that doesn't mean you don't need one in your home as well. Oh yay I thought this looked familiar; some arsewipe necro'd it.

                • You have no say in this. If he pays the bills for the Internet he can do what ever he wants with it. You don't need the Internet to find a job, there's jobs in the newspaper, walk around look for one. If you want Internet you have to pay for it your self. Stop being a baby.

This wasn't very nice of you Bungie and you should be ashamed of yourselves anyone should be able to enjoy such an awesome game at anytime internet or no internet....

                    • The internet is certainly a faster means to an end for most things. This would include shopping, news (if you take time to validate), information (to include studies), searches (jobs, item reviews), gossiping (usage of social media programs are great examples), gaming (another form of social media), and so on. With all that said the service is offered for free (in US) in most public places (food places, libraries, coffee shops...). For home use the payer of the bills is the decision maker. I don't want to put myself in the position of analyzing your families structure but can share if I saw a message like this I would take away your internet access as well.
