Electricity and Electronics

I packed my bags for the trip to Indianapolis. I was stunned by the amount of electronica and electric chargers I am taking to be wireless! Ipod and charger, digital camera, GPS and charger; netbook and charger, blackberry and charger.

I spent a few minutes looking around our house. Our world is dominated by electricity. Sure we have a natural gas stove and furnace, but neither of them will work without electricity! If it is not directly plugged it, it requires batteries. Thankfully, my acoustic guitar, mandolin and banjo don't need electricity, although I do have a battery powered electronic tuner!

Woe to our society if electricity disappears.
