Another exciting "What if?" question. What if all electricity was taken away? How mad would you be? Would you buy it illegally? Would you start a riot against the person who put the plan into action?
Personally, I'd be bored half the time because mostly I'm texting, playing video games, watching stupid stuff on the computer, or making these questions. I would be very, very mad. I probably wouldn't buy it illegally.Yes, I would start a riot against the person who thought of the idea of taking away electricity.

Well, I have a few generators but I'd be pretty annoyed if someone shut down the power. Blackouts are the closest I've had to actually not having power, and it was was pretty boring =P

I would be bored to death but just so people know this effects more than just your TV, phone, computer, or video games. some ovens and stove tops run electricity as does the fridge and microwave. Some clocks and coffee machines wouldn't work. Everone would have to use candles because lightbulbs wouldn't work. Everone would have to read newspaper again to know about anything. Alot of stores would go out of buisseness because they use elctricity. From that I would conclude a lot of people would die because they normally buy food at a store or can't adjust to the change. Those of us who adjust would have to learn to survive by our selves on books that tell us what plants are ok to eat and what aren't. Hunting would be popular because meat is not easy to get fresh. Those of us who live on farms would have an easier time because, let's just face it, farmers are tough. Overall the human race has a 50/50 chance of survival.

To be honest, humans nowadays wouldn't be able to live without electricity.
No lights, heaters or electrical products?
Many people would struggle to get by each day.

Honestly...if electricity was gone I'd probably make myself a bath, hop in, then toss my toaster in. I wouldn't be able to handle it

No need for a new thread about the same idea. Post in the other one and tell us what you want the thread title to be. We can do that, you know. Just ask.
