I'd be annoyed, but I'd live.

OH TEH NOES, BACK TO CANDLES, FIRES FOR MY FOOD, GETTING UP AT DAWN AND GOING TO BED WHEN IT GETS DARK.  ITS NOT LIKE I DIDN'T DO THAT WHEN I SPENT WEEKS CAMPING WHEN I WAS 12.

Still, I'd much rather have internet access, be able to listen to the radio and boil my water in a plugged in kettle.  Just saying.
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."

I'd wander the neighborhood as a wandering minstrel.  The people won't have their teevees so they'll need some entertainments.

You'd wander the neighbourhood as a minstrel, yes.

Your neighbours wouldn't hear sweet music, however. They would hear the harbinger of the apocalypse. Especially if you used your nose flute.

I'd wander the neighbourhood, looting.

No electricity = no security alarms.

Nah, I have the hold the Nose Flute to my face when I play it.  I'd need that arm to beat the drum.

damn- beat me to it.  i rather like it when the power goes out.  i was caught in the big midwest black out of ought-three and it was a great time.  it kind of forces you to get out of your routine which is a good thing.

our electrical grid is so fragile it's astonishing, really.  99% of the wires on the poles are un-insulated so all you need is a way to short out the wires (without grounding yourself) and you can blow circuits left and right.  i always figured a model rocket tethered with some conductor flown into some transmission lines would work pretty good.

Shut your cockgobbler, shit for brains.

Nobody gives a fuck what you think, or what facts you have to share.

TGRR,
Knows that spamming up a OKM thread ---> time for nonstop flaming.  Behind each and every post in which you try to say anything serious.
