So if we all went back to the old days, like 1800's, do you think you could survive? If you had to "live off the land" ?

  • Yes if someone taught me to do it. Back then there were folks who passed that information down. Now we give our time to learning about video games and watch reality shows that aren't teaching us anything except visual stimulation, manual dexterity and drama not survival.

  • Oh it would be hard but sometimes I really wish it was like that these days. I think I would miss TV the most.

  • Hell no! It'd be fun for a short while, but not in the long run. I don't think I could have babies without there being a hospital and anesthetics. That'd be the only downside. Plus laws weren't really enforced then, so people got away with more.

  • No way lol. I would kill all the veggies and fruits lol, I don't have a green thumb and I couldn't deal with milking a cow at like the crack of dawn.

  • I could. I was raised on a farm. I know how to raise a garden, and how to preserve food (canning). I even know how to hunt, and clean the food. So, yeah, no problems here.
