Geeks/Nerds already rule the earth

By Shirokit ·
Hehe just as the title says. Geeks/Nerds really do rule the earth if you think about it.

What would happen if all geeks/nerds goes on strike at the same time or just disappears out of the picture?

I think it would be a global communication and economic meltdown.

How long will the net/telecomunications/wireless/satelites/travel/power/water/banks sustain itself in that event?

What would happen to the stock markets?

The truth is almost every company/country relies on computers in order to function and without the help of geeks/nerds their computers will slowly but surely start to malfunction due to lack of computer knowledge of the regular user.

If you think about it almost everything in our daily lives relies on geeks/nerds doing what we do.

Hello, account e-mail address?

by The 'G-Man.' In reply to .

you said post to it for checking, hello...accounts e-mail address, hello, hello???

Sometimes it's easy to forget where you're goin'
Sometimes it's harder to leave
And everytime you think you know just what you're doin'
That's when your troubles exceed

Geeks/nerds

by boxfiddler Moderator In reply to Geeks/Nerds already rule ...

are dependent upon the electricity that powers their toys. Dependent upon the trucks that transport the food they eat, dependent upon the water and sewage companies for clean water, and flushing toilets, and dependent upon the trash collector to haul off garbage keeping their neighborhoods clean and disease free.

Your dependencies are backwards, and in the event the lights go out permanently, I bet that I, a simple farmer, last a whole lot longer than you, a braggart geek.

Er, not quite. If civilization ended tomorrow, all the crazy survivalist/hippie neo-primitives- who are adept at hunting and gathering- would be best at surviving. Farmers rely on society for protection. In a lawless mad max world every farm/stationary domicile is one hungry party of nomadic raiders away from being razed to the ground.

Er..Maybe so

by Shellbot In reply to not quite

I'd adapt..
What kind of farmers do you know?

The ones I know, and grew up with are well capable of looking after themselves.

So those who can hunter-gather will survive..but farmers wont..i beg to differ.

If needs be I can hunt, fish, gather edible food, build, weave, ect..growing up on the farm taugh me most of that.

Of course every farm building is ripe for the picking..I do watch movies too :)
Thats where being able to build a hut from sticks is a good skill

Don't know about a few thousand years ago, but

by Deadly Ernest In reply to not quite

every farmer I know has a few rifles and knows how to use them, they usually keep a good stock or ammunition too.

I support the cowgirls, as the worst that can happen is they ride their way to victory - yahoooo.
