How would you go about your life if all the computers in the world stopped working tomorrow?

That means Network Admin, Info system admins, coders and programmers and etc would all be out of a job sadly for some time:(


Our world would be living in the 1850's to 1950's.

Update 2:

Why major in computers? If all the computers in the world all went crashing down and stopped working tomorrow? You would have to work a labor skill plumping, electrician, lawn care specialist, construction, accountant, Janitor, Maid, Nursing, office clerk, USPS,UPS,FED EX, Sales, Warehouse, welder and etc

Update 3:

So again, how would you live your life IF computers or computing were never invented or If all the computers stopped working in the world tomorrow? I guess you would never major in computers because the computer creators never invented computing. Your IQ would be lower because programming, coding, computer science, info system degrees and majors and etc would never exist,

Update 4:

You would result to a High IQ but lower IQ degree than computer science degree and all the computer science degree that are offered such as resulting to Accounting, Engineering, Finance, Health and etc because again ALL computer degree in the world would never exist because computing creators or computer creators would have never invented computer or computers.

Update 5:

We would BE LIVING in simpler Times.

Update 6:

How would you OR Could you live your life EVERYDAY as IF computing or computers creators NEVER INVENTED or created computing or computers?

Update 7:

Online Scammers, hackers, Online dating such as Tinder, POF, OkCupid and etc would never exist. Facebook would never exist and Instagram too. Online business would never exist. Ebay and etc. People would never kill them selves because of the internet. People would get out of the house more. The video games online such as mobile, PS4 and Xbox and Wii games systems would still exist but just no online game play. Spread sheets would be done on paper instead of online through word.

Update 8:

    I wouldn't blink an eye. The world would get better. All fake things would be gone - surreal socializing: fake love, fake friends.

    Addictions would dissolve.People would get more intelligent. People would be fit. Healthy lifestyle would prevail.

    B-tards and other lackluster people would take their rightful place in the society.

    Social justice would be restored, fat benchwarmers get busy. People would get healthier. World would become a better place.

    The world changed a lot with advent of social networks. People have become different in a negative snse.

    On the one hand.

    Social networks, idle activities are evil.

    On the other hand, comupters are vital in medicine, transport, science.

    Are you sure we'd be living in far simpler times or would there be huge issues with handling the number of people who now live on the planet??

    We wouldn't have as many people if computers didn't exist and I bet lifespans wouldn't be quite as long...

    I think I would have YA withdrawal symptoms. I suppose I'd have to actually find something constructive to do.

    There will be breakdown of all communication, logistics and finance. There must be resumption of computers soon Otherwise, the world would revert to the system when there were no computers.
