Without a doubt. I'm on my phone or computer every second I'm not sleeping. I'd go nuts without them.

Somewhat. I can survive with my music.

Yes, that would really suck!

I could adapt. I wouldn't want to willingly though.

It would be pretty rough at first I think, but I would imagine that I would eventually adapt.

I always have an electronic going. I would lose my mind.

During the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, we spent several days disconnected and it was really good.

I liked the more direct connection my wife and I had, talking more, doing retro stuff like playing cards (with actual cards!).

But I was glad when the power came back on.

I do have to take part of each day to turn it all off. Especially the cellphone. People get annoyed, because I often forget to turn it back on!!

But I'm confident I could handle a world with no electronics just fine.

Looks like I'm not the only one who's been watching the apocalypse shows on the History Channel lately hahaha. I would definitely go insane. My boyfriend lives on the other side of the country and I'd have no way to contact him if we all lost power for an extended length of time.

I would certainly freak out. The internet is a huge stress reliever for me now.

I would go crazy without my phone, computer, and even my TV.

GONE! GONE!
It sure would. I need my computer!

Considering it's the basis of my major, and my job, yes.

I'd miss it, especially since my job is entirely built around developing computer software.

I hope you and yours are okay.
A few years back we had a massive ice storm rip through our town. We had no power for almost a month. I went and stayed with my brother in law and his "hippie" friends at a place they had down town. That was the best two weeks of my life. It was disconecting from the crazy ass world and just refinding the simple joyous things in life. But I'm with you, I was happy when the power came cback on.

LOL, No actually I thought of it because a customer at work today just blurted it out. Wasn't provoked, no one even mentioned it. he just started to preach about how a solar flare was going to take out everything electronical. But yes, I did see that.

With the exception of my job (which is on the computer), I would be good! It would be a little sad to not have my computer, but I admit that I've been slowly trying to unplug more. I stopped using facebook, stopped twitter, stopped texting everyone, and never did upgrade to a "smart" phone.

Ideally I would like at least a half hour on my computer a day just to keep in contact! But otherwise all would be fine.

We're fine, thanks! No real damage, just lost a couple of trees and lived w/o power for a couple of weeks.

I hate ice storms! I grew up in North Carolina and we had ice storms every couple of years. The power went off a lot, but usually it came back on in a few hours. In February 1996, we were without power for 8 days down there and it was unusually cold, to make things worse. Fortunately, with all the downed limbs and trees, there was plenty of free firewood. I wish I'd had some cool hippie friends to hang out with then!
