what about applebots and everyone addicted to blackberry, facebook etc.
the withdrawal would be 10x worse than a heroin addiction.
a massive unplugging like that, would probably fry more than a few brains, and possibly leave millions with a blank, dumb look on their face.
unable to even accomplish the smallest task or feed themselves without some sort of assistance.
what do you propose is to be done for those pathetic souls.
i would imagine they'd all gravitate to each other, moaning and wailing, creating a giant herd of useless zombies.
waiting for someone to feed them.
but since their iphones won't work, they won't know what to do next.
they won't know what fire is. besides that it burns.
they don't know what food is. besides that it comes in a can or can be purchased.
they would probably just sit in the dark in their house or apartment and slowly starve, not even having the will or intelligence to move, checking
every 15 mins to see if their iphones are charging.
not even realizing the end is near and there is no power.
the funny thing is, there wouldn't be any more vegans or vegetarians. i bet more than one would turn into ravenous carnivores after 6 weeks of
starvation, dropping down to 100 pounds and near death.
i like to see them then turn down a chicken wing, or look down on someone eating a steak.
