I read a newspaper article about end of the world. They said that it is going to be delayed for another 50 years. That’s cool, I can live with that. I’ll be like, 70 years old. Not bad…
But, there is a catch. Scientists say that there will be explosions on sun in 2013, which will bring havoc on Earth. Those explosions could burn every microchip on our planet.
So, we need to find a plan. How about turning of every electronic thing we have? Okay, but, what about things we can’t turn off? In hospitals it is VERY important that everything works or people will die. And no cars, no planes, nothing… No internet! What are we going to do? Are we going to be for couple of months in some steam punk future society?
Let us imagine the world in those months. First couple of weeks we will struggle to live without electronic stuff, but then we will try to adjust. No cars, but there are chariots, horses, camels, and donkeys. We would spend time outside, not in front of the computer. There would be also no pollution because everything would stop working. If it happens at winter, big cities would be very cold to live, or they would buy fireplaces.
Some people would loose their jobs. Or they will just go on vacation. On horses or other animals. I really think it isn’t going to be so bad, after all.
As for me, I will go on long walks everyday and spend time with my family and friends playing charades, or Monopoly, reading books and maybe start learning calligraphy.
What about you?
