  • Most of the world went through that on December 31, 1999. It was called "the Y2K Scare" and turned out to be a frivolous ordeal. It did highlight the stupid people, though - that was something.

  • No...because computers are not necessary for much of the World to function completely normally. Think of farmers, for example. Are they going to change if all computers suddenly go on the fritz (say: because of some tremendous, 24-hour-long Solar Storm causing an EMP that affects the entire World)??? No, for the typical farmer life without computers will be "business as usual". Guess what? ***40%*** of the working World population is employed in farming. What would be at a standstill? Well...most stores in technologically advanced nations use computer terminals to calculate sales, so most stores in those nations would have to resort to paper and addition. Stores that use bar codes would be especially hard-hit during that "computer blackout"...but in third World nations, where electricity is often very unreliable, non-computer - in fact, non-electric - methods of computing sales are "the norm", and so retailers in those nations will suffer little difficulty.

  • Everybody thought that was going to happen at the turn of the 21st century but it didn't.
