What do you guys do?

There was a blackout at my place last week and it went for almost 24 hours...

I seriously have nothing to do at home without computer ...

I'm just wondering what others do when they are in the same situation..

Well..if it happens during the day time, I go out.

Sometimes I go to friends place, or go to casino to play poker.

If it happens during the night, I normally just try to go to sleep.

But if it is hard to get to sleep, I just call one of my friends and talk until the bettery dies

Hah, I start crawling the walls without my computer too! But the blackout I remember most after a winter storm here a few years ago went on for over a week. That was the real deal.


My answer.....I own a generator now.

The adult I am takes care of most things real life. However my inner-child is a GAMER!!

Been fortunate to never have experianced a blackout. But a serie like Revolution (http://www.nbc.com/revolution/) does make me think.......what if.....but that's maily because of a full blackout.

What I would do with a blackout like 24/48 hours is plenty, mainly because at some point I am sure there will be energy again.

I do admit to be pretty depended on tech, either Phone, tablet, tv, laptop, pc, but seem to be perfectly fine with leaving it all behind during holiday's for 2 to 4 weeks.

Play on my DS, and if that dies, on my PSP. If those die, read a book.

 

Was once stuck at home with a blackout and a storm, and there wasn't enough light for reading, but enough candles during a meal. The boredom was enough that I was ready to see what happens when you burn a cinnamon roll. 

 

Never going to that dark place willingly.

If it's day time and the power's out I go outside and look around...but my place doesn't that have good view of the world so I don't usually do so. I go to bed if I don't want to go outside....eventually I fall asleep. Even if I wasn't sleepy in the first place, I feel sleepy after a while and eventually I go to sleep.

 

It's a bit more fun for me if it's night time and the power's out. I pretend it's the middle ages when electricity hasn't been invented yet but modern plumbing/hygiene/bathrooms are available. We light candles around the house it kinda feels like those old times. Hahaha!

If it's a hot day I just sit in our living room with a fan and wait it out.

If it's cold I go to bed and close all the curtains if it's bright outside then just lie in bed and force myself to sleep.

Last time that happened I was in the middle of a game.

I stared blankly at my monitor for about five minutes hoping that the power would be back soon. It did not. It lasted for about 4 hours. It felt forever.

Sometimes I like it when the power's out. I get to use my flashlight like in those horror games.

Light candles.  Read.  Play Monopoly with relatives.  Finally go shopping for food (love putting that off).  But yeah, ya keep catching yourself trying to go to the internet to look something up and you're like, "oh yeah... how did I live for so many years without it?"

My son and I are both gamers - and we game for almost all the time we have spare. Some people (non-gamers?) would see this as wasted time but I don't see how time can be wasted doing what you enjoy.. what else is there?

Anyways... this is a massive problem for us when the power goes out as you can imagine! Our power fails maybe 2-3 times a year but it seems to be more often because it sticks in your mind. I also work online so I can't even work without power. I guess the only solution would be to get a generator for the essentials.

As for what do we do? Play games of course! It makes a nice change actually to sit and play card games and board games with the family instead of talking via Skype and Steam!

Now making a series on "Craft The World" and also tutorials on my YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/AnotherOldGamer

When there's a blackout I just chat with my relatives while waiting for the power to get back on.

The world feels more quiet when there's a blackout. I like it.
