lets say that something happened to all the satellites orbiting earth, some massive solar flare fired all electronics on earth, ETC ETC ETC something something something. The time frame can be either Winter when the temperature is below 20 degrees Fahrenheit or summer when its more than 110 degrees Fahrenheit. everyone was warned of this impending threat and was told to remain calm.

IF NOBODY KNEW HOW LONG THIS WOULD LAST, but somehow everything starts working in a day (24 Hours) remember nobody knows that.

COULD YOU LAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????

Living off the land as a beast it the only way, but we've devolved physically, so we need tools to survive.

If a solar flare is close, expansive, and powerful enough to create a geomagnetic storm that wipes out all electronics worldwide, your question hardy treats it as the catastrophe it truly is. In actuality, your solar flare is very likely an extinction event; however, assuming that the solar flare is unrealistically tame, I'd be peachy during the twenty-four hour blackout. I'd probably be well occupied with keeping a sharp eye out for looters and their ilk.

Fahrenheit, what strange creature you speak of.
If it was winter here I probably wouldn't survive a day, during night it can get close to -40 Celsius, which oddly enough is -40 Fahrenheit.
Summer it would be fine, just like a camping trip, probably wouldn't even notice as the day is mostly spent swimming and relaxing on the islands.

I could survive without electronics for a day no problem. Going on a backpacking trip for seven days really cleanses your pallet of most technology. Winter would be a pain, but summer would be no problem.

Any invention of man? Personally, no. I'd only survive a few days because it takes a while to starve.

During Cold Response we dug ourselves five feet under the snow where we "lived" for three days pissing in bottles and shitting in plastic bags. So what do you think? Do you think I could survive for twenty-four hours in my apartment?

I'd only last a few days, as there are things that some of us need to survive. Namely, certain types of medications and medical devices.

Well yes because you can go for a day without food or water but in the long term, no, you'd eventually die. I'd be incredibly bored but that's about as far as it would go.

I'm not sure I could live a day without my microwave.

Personally, I think we'd be better off without all of the distractions that preclude the important things in life. People would actually have to work every day simply to survive! No more turning on and tuning out! Diets and gyms would never be needed because you'd get plenty of exercise planting and harvesting or cutting and hauling wood for fire. I think the most difficult hurtle will be obtaining water since we F'd up our rivers so that you can no longer drink that water without something bad happening to you!

You mean just living without electricity?
No challenge at all.
