Apocalyptic: ☢️ If there where no more computers tomorrow, what would you do?

I often wonder how well my particular set of skills translate into the real world, especially a world in ruins.

What would you do in the apocalypse, assuming you survived the first wave 😂

I don't need computers to go away before I do this, but to not get to radical about it, I plan to open a plant-based burger joint.

My working name for the restaurant is BB's Burgers — where BB stands for BB's Burgers.

I know the feeling - its good to have plans outside of tech incase AI takes over and learns to program...

I have seen some outstanding plant based burgers over here in Bristol UK its quite convincing, although I really didnt get the vegitarian but make it look like the thing im not wanting to eat. I can see now that its more of an econmical argument, I like it and I hope that you get to do it one day Ben, you have done all of this after all!

My job as a developer is finding solutions to issues and I guess the apocalypse is a pretty tough one, so I'm not out of work soon.

Bring on the apocalypse. I love testing my problem solving skills.

But seriously, I'd hide and buy time until someone else solves this one.

Perhaps but I think you might be more forthcoming than you let on, out of the 600 or so who viewed this post, you cared to comment, maybe you are braver than you think

Leaving out the fact that it most likely would be a catastrophic world, I'd probably dedicate myself full-time to theater/acting and woodwork (for the record I have very little knowledge about woodwork but it is something I'd love to learn in depth).

It would be nice because there wouldn't be any of those those annoying people that always feel that they have to correct your grammar. Like when using "where" in the title of your thread when you meant "were". That sort of stuff.

I often say that as a dyslexic person on a phone in the south of England, I am afforded a free pass

Anyone using a phone gets a free pass in my opinion. I have all but giving up on them.

No computers?

That's easy, I'd make more computers.

Anyone who's actually interested in what kind of "apocalyptic" level event could destroy all of our computers but leave us alone should look into CMEs (Coronal Mass Ejections) and the Carrington Event (a historic example of an "apocalyptic" level CME hitting Earth).

I think if computers went away tomorrow, I'd break down and cry because that means no more programming lol.

I'd probably get into website design - with a pencil

I don't think many people fathom the level of destruction and chaos that would ensue if there were no more computers. They are absolutely ubiquitous in the modern world

Ahh but I'm sure with enough space we can invent an internet powered by cogs 😂, yeah I know I know, 99% of us are used to being connected. This is why I like gardening, model trains and Living in the country
