Last night, all the electricity in the house went off but then immediately came back again. I was using the computer and watching Match of the Day at the time and sadly lost that great work of art I was working on in MS Paint, as well as my point-by-point solution to cure all the world's ills. Looks like it's just going to be society that loses out on my computer being turned off and not me. Though I have had the rather small annoyance of Firefox logging me out of everything and/or having my cookies deleted (I've not bothered to check). Still in a small way, that short moment when I thought "why's the electricity gone off," demonstrates that I can quite clearly survive without modern technology. I even had my mobile phone at the ready to call the police if needs be. So take that, life!
