Any invention of man would include everything from clothes and basic stone tools to houses and controlled usage of fire. Not only that, inventions don't just include material things, they include techniques like different knots or ways to hunt.

I'll answer for the content in the post, as the title is even more unrealistic. Electricity dependant technologies are luxuries, and I could even argue anyone could live an entire lifetime without them. Honestly speaking, taking a day off from electronics every once in a while is probably pretty healthy.

***The usage of fire may be an unfair example if we're talking strictly homo sapiens' inventions. It's widely accepted that homo erectus was able to use fire in a controlled setting before homo sapiens ever came around.

Probably. I'd just eat some fruit for nutrition and sleep until the electricity came back on. If it never came back on, I would be permanently comatose.

As long as I have food, water, shelter, and a change a pace, I'll be fine and manage somehow.

I read somewhere that the US could last two weeks before food shortages would start.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????


1 day?

I've managed survive week long power outages during both summer heat waves in Florida and blizzards in Maine.
Plenty of other people have done the same. Stuff happens when big storms hit.

If you're prepared, i.e. camping trips, it can be fun to just get away from everything. We used to spend a week or more at a time camping on deserted islands in the Bahama's when I was growing up. Catching fish and lobster by day, bonfires on the beach by night. No electronics of any kind.

It wouldn't be that much of a problem, if it's not a permanent condition. In winter, i would wrap my snakey in a blanket and warm it with my own body temperature. You know, because the heat lamp in its terrarium wouldn't work. Could become a boring time, however. Without the Internet, there's much less to do.

Oh, and we would need a fireplace to cook.

Books don't need batteries

Last time I got stuck in a power outage, I broke out a tabletop RPG and spend the weekend gaming with my family, plus I had a freezer full of meat I had to cook on the grill.

The only upsetting part was I'd just spent $200 on groceries and lost a lot of it.

No I would literally die in less than 48 hours in this heat.

Any invention? probably not... I rather like my clothing, and agriculture. Humanoid neoteny is a wonderful thing.
high tech stuff,sure, it would take some getting used to, but I'd deal.
