Techno slaves
« on: April 06, 2010, 04:56:17 AM »

So. Some evil trickster God has been watching you waste away, entertaining yourself with all the modern conveniences that life has to offer, and has decided to teach you a lesson by taking away all the advances in technology over the, hmmm, lets say 500 years.

How do you go about living your life and entertaining yourself without these techno wonders?

500 years ago: travel was constrained to wood and canvas ships (thus limiting commerce, information, ideas, and physical migration); the Catholic Church ruled Europe, most of Africa and Arabia was Muslim, the Native Americans were still tribal. The best game going was some variation of kick-the-pig-bladder, hit-the-thing-with-the-stick, or throw-the-thing-at-the-things. Drudgery was the hot fashion of the day.
I'm not sure, those all sound quite fun.

My life would probably wind up involving more alcohol, sex and foolin' around. After all, what else is there?  :jester:

I wonder if beermaking was better or worse back in the day.......

I don't think beer has changed that significantly from now to 500 years ago...

I'd drink it, anyway.
