If technology fails


NU and I were discussing the possibility of all technology failing on earth. I was thinking a Pinky and The Brain type situation where an evil genius uses a giant magnet to ruin our lives.


I'm obviously not a scientist but it sounds legit?

But we’ve decided that although this would suck and you would suddenly only be friends with people within walking distance, there are plenty of fun and entertaining non-technological activities that could be done instead.

Let me name a few:
*Folk dancing
*Picking flowers
*Skipping through meadows
*Playing bongos
*Making a fire on the beach
*Creating a flinstones car
*Skipping stones
*Having a mud bath
*Eating grass
*Using a hula hoop
*Tap dancing
*Selling potatoes at a market stall
*Playing a violin
*Making a fishing rod out of a stick
*Climbing trees
*Making a treehouse
*Throwing cow poop at eachother (bf suggested this – he grew up on a farm.. Enough said).

See? Plenty of fun stuff!
Basically we’ll all be hippies.
But if you think about it, hippies are always happy so maybe they’re onto something?


Anyway make sure you memorise this list because with no technology, you can’t check back for ideas :O

And if you’re rolling your eyes and doing your daily Lumosity (I’ve gone up 50 smarts I reckon!), note the following positives that come from no more technology:
1. No more celebrities. Who cares what they’re doing anyway?!
2. No more paying for petrol or having phone and electricity bills! Huzzah!
3. You can grow your own food and sell a cow for a house (or build your own out of guano), so basically there’s no need to work.. Woooo!
4. You can live in a cave and throw rocks at people (NU and I like to imagine this life when we’re having a ‘people suck’ day).
5. You wouldn’t be sitting here watching Iron Chef with the chosen ingredient of ‘lettuce’ while everyone else (including your partner) is out with friends drinking.. *shifty eyes* Alright fuck this, I’ve gotta go do something.

Life loves to set me up for its own entertainment. But instead of me hiding these awkward moments, I plan on sharing them for my own (and possibly your) amusement. Now who's laughing, life?

  1. Loved loved LOVED this and giggled the whole time I was reading it.

  2. There are days when I think this would be paradise compared to our technology filled hectic lifestyle.

    • Yes! I kind of treat holidays like this in a way – I take photos and have wifi back at the hostel/hotel if I need it but I wander around in the day with my focus on nature, face to face contact, the kindness of strangers etc. I love it 🙂

  3. We’d read books again, and write with whatever we could find and paint and just survive day to day. Going camping feels like that a little – takes so long to set up camp that you’re ready to eat and sleep and that’s it.

  4. Why is folk dancing first? Why?
