The characteristic feature of the loser is to bemoan, in general terms, mankind's flaws, biases, contradictions and irrationality-without exploiting them for fun and profit
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.
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.

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.
pedal-powered generators.Just sayin'.
