Yeah, that will work

Here's something that isn't going to happen: shut down the internet because it is keeping people from communicating.

This one has been making the rounds in various forms.  Apparently, Elton John hates the Internet and would like to see it shut down.

"I do think it would be an incredible experiment to shut down the whole Internet for five years and see what sort of art is produced over that span," John told the newspaper. "Let's get out in the streets and march and protest instead of sitting at home and blogging."

Why?  He thinks people aren't communicating when they are sitting, isolated at home.  Or maybe he's upset that we aren't listening to his new music.

Ouch!

I agree this ain't gonna happen. The genie is out of the bottle, there's no putting it back.

He must have spent too much time in his native country this summer. The rain here in the UK has clearly watered down his mind :-)

...never mind the fact people are finding it easier to organise protests thanks to social networking sites...
