    Default Imagine in a few years from now.

    Imagine that in a few years in the future we have so much technology that we don't need to write. That all we depend on is tech. to read write and hear. There's no such thing as written documents anymore. Then all of a sudden some natural catastrophe happens and all that tech goes out the window. How would you survive?!

    More unhealthy and fatter people once the technologies has been highly qualified to convenience people to the point that we don't even need to get up.

    China will be the world's super power by the year of 2012, which tells me that the US will really fall. [[Very Obvious one]]

    The statistic of natural disaster will increase.

    More wars--Nations will fight Nations, kingdoms fight kingdoms...

    The climate will turn out abnormal from the past years.

    Satan will be very busy!
    That's all I can imagine.
    ~*~*~*~
    This will not be just a few years...but it'll take more years. There will be improvement invention of micro chips to insert into peoples' brains, meaning that the people uses the chip in their brain to control many things such like turning on the TV, as the people wants to turn on the TV, the TV turns on by itself. And the chip can be inserted even in animals.

    It'll be a tremendous but also scary technology that possibly turn the world over.

    I would bring three Asus eee pc of different editions to school. Of course, easy to work, learn and play, light and small, right for your hands!

    However, I shall not look up the part where of no technology uses. That would be merely impossible.

    I doubt that this will even occur in my lifetime. The world progresses more slower than what people think.

    I will always use the resourses that I use now as they are what I have adapted to. The government can try and take my pen and paper away from me if they wish, that is ofcourse if they can find me.

    Seriously though I do not think that there will be a time when we do not "write" or, weirder still, "listen" for that matter as that is just beyond ridiculous. I do not even think that this world could be lazy and stupid enough to progress that far to being lifeless computer freaks that do nothing for themselves and just let technology do everything.

    Alas, to answer your question, I think that I would just live without it all. I have learnt campcraft skills just in the case of a worst case scenario such as this. I will live, unless ofcourse this incident starts yet another huge incident where people start going insane as a result and start to protest and make a rise in crime rates until the government put in order the peoples beloved laziness devices so that the community does not have to live for themselves any longer.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there were sentient robots and flying cars in less than a decade. In fact, companies have already started developing prototypes.

    This explains that cooler:


    I just need a spear, some gum, & a jar to survive. We need to write and stuff, but in reality writing will never die out. There are too many drop outs & people who can't work a computer.

    Sentient robots? Perhaps. Flying cars? Probably not. The energy efficiency (or lack thereof) in any sort of flying mode of transportation will always make them expensive as hell. With the exception of hot air balloons and blimps.

    Why yes, I am indeed "for real". Not in every single aspect have we advanced by much, and I was stating from public thoughts which is why I stated "..slower than people think".

    In the 1960's, and even in more later years than that, people assumed that we would all be driving around in flying cars by the year 2010..and as we all know that is not going to happen in a period of less than two years. I would say about 60 years time at the least.

    Also, the Military were using computers back during World War II, in fact computers were first made for the use of the military and was only their cause for concern. Computer technology was not meant for the public to begin with and therefore it has been being used far longer than people think.

    People always assume technology will advance in stupid directions. That doesn't mean that technology hasn't advanced extremely fast.

    The General Public's Guesses =/= Reality

    Also, the Military were using computers back during World War II, in fact computers were first made for the use of the military and was only their cause for concern. Computer technology was not meant for the public to begin with and therefore it has been being used far longer than people think.
    Congratulations on missing the point. 30 years ago, the only thing that was computerized was computers and they fell into two categories: desk top size and lame, or large and somewhat less lame. Now a mid-level car has more computing power then an Apple II.

    If you thoroughly re-read my post, you will find that I said that nothing was computerized. I did not say there were no computers. Today, everything is computerized, that is, every aspect of our life is permeated by computers from how we make the stuff we need, to when street lights change color, to how much water comes out of your tap. This was not the case in 1978.

    The people that believe in flying cars are the people who think 9/11 was a conspiracy. Advancements in cars would be not using gas anymore. Plus, imagine the price of hovercrafts. Expensive!

    Where do people get the idea that some natural disaster can somehow "destroy all the tech"? How is that any more likely than "comet plummets into Earth" or "Earth suddenly stops spinning"?

    After the natural catastrophy, only the truly worthy of living will survive. That's what i call Natural Selection (screw you, Darwin!).

    It's entirely possible if an advanced nation-state wanted to. An Electromagnetic Pulse is viable, and will destroy pretty much anything that uses electricity and isn't in a Faraday Cage or specifically designed to resist EMP. You blow up enough Nukes at high altitude in the right places (or figure out a more efficient way of doing it), and you'll get another feudal age, easy.

    If you want a non-artificial event, try Polar Reversal. In the event of polar reversal, the magnetic field loses much of it's strength. While this has never, apparently, caused a mass extinction it's very possible it'll fry much of the earth's electronic devices, especially if it coincides with a solar flare.
    Ehhh, I dunno if I'll stick around. We'll see.
