It would be okay with me.  I grew up without any of these things. We didn't even have a land line phone in the house for years and bought a TV only when it was required for school so I could answer questions about the Huntley-Brinkley news report.  :)

I don't think so. There are several reasons. First of all, we can not verify or forum without giving our cell phone number. So will loose money right there. Second things we all trying to make money through internet and it can be done by only using computer. So these two are very common electronic that we use now a days. Other most important is Car. At least once we all have expe. that how hard to live with out car.

I've just realized right this moment that I might not be able to survive even 6 hours without any electronic devices: computer, phone, etc...

What do you think? Could you survive at least a week without any electronic of any sort? To make a little simpler, how long do you think you could go without any electronic device?  :wave:


i don't think i could live with out my computer, tv or dvr for more then like 2 and half hours.  But i use my computer for like verything so without it i would probley have a melt down. lol :thumbsup: :wave:

If I must go through it due to any uncontrollable circumstances such as natural disasters that struck my neighborhood, then I will happily adapt. It gives me an opportunity to read more books and meditate to occupy my time. :thumbsup:

I would feel weird not checking up on my news and such, though... I would feel out of touch from the world, ironically, even though technology seems to keep us from living our lives sometimes. But I think I would be fine as long as the power in general would work, and just not cell phones and TVs and such. I would have time to read books, study, exercise, go out to the city...

I think I could survive just fine (especially in the spring/summer time) but that doesn't mean I'd like it!!       :sad1:
  i really can say that i can because am always checking my email and looking for other types of stuff such as work out routines.

I think I could live without electronics for a week although I would
feel "out of touch" without my cellphone.
