    Do we rely too much on technology?

    Now I know that we all rely on some technology for our "lifestyle" of bodybuilding. Without some technology we would not have the good bars and weights we have which are the basis of all our workouts. But how long could we "survive in our lifestyle" if technology failed us? How many of us provide for some, if not most, of our food supply, especially the protein? Now the supplements are a whole different question. None of us could even come close to providing our own supplements. Should we, as a group, begin to step back and take a good look at how we rely on technology and how, or if, we can reduce our overdependence on technology?

    What's so wrong with technology? As intelligent people, if technology failed us, I personally would immediately search for an alternative, as it relates to protein intake.

    If you want to step back and think about it, go ahead. While you're doing that, me and millions of others will be making multiple steps forward, with or without technology.

    anyone else see the irony about posting about an over reliance on technology in a chat room.

    As a member of the SCA (society for creative anachronism) and a history nut I know that fitness freaks like us have been around for a long long time. Could we survive without a lot of the things we have now, absolutly. Would I want tot give up my protien powder and creatine, only when you pry them from my cold dead hands.

    If you want inspiration for what we could achieve body wise without all the tech just look at Michalangelo's statue of David, or the side of almost any period Grecian Urn.

    In the Old Testament there is even a reference to proper nutrition for athelets and whether or not Jewish followers could compete and stay Kosher. Spoiler alter ahead ............the kosher atheletes kicked butt.

    It technology were to fail?
    Your biggest worry would not be bodybuilding, it would be survival.

    Life style? Just shut off the electricity for a month and tell me what your lifestyle would be then. Not possible you say? It is possible and it would not take a war, just a determined nut or terrorist.

    We are truly slaves to our technology, especially in urban areas.

    PBS ran a series of documentaries from James Burke years ago called "Connections". If yo haven't seen them they may be available at your local Library. The original series was the best but there was Connections 2 and 3 as well.

    Basically it shows how some inventions or discoveries were actually a series of small discoveries, often unintentional, over time. When the original series played on TV we used to have connections parties and watch the show and then discuss it.

    There are some notable recent events, hurricane Katrina for one, that show how fast society reverts to animals when technology is removed and people have to find food and shelter in any way they can. It becomes survival of the fittest. You have to wonder what would happen if the rest of North America lost their Technology at the same time, there probably would be few survivors in urban areas and rural areas would have to defend their lands.

    The question most missed is just how dependent each of us is to "technology". How many could, or would, step back and attempt to secure your food supply with just a knife? Yes, Katrina was an example of just how dependent most of us who live in the "western" world have become on "governments" to provide for us. An additional question is, how many really want to survive if "technology" really does fail? And that failure may not be that "far off" in terms of failure. Yellowstone is above a super volcano that is some 40,000 years overdue to explode. With much of the coal being used to produce electricy in the U.S., most of the coal would become unavailable due to ash and railroad distruction. But what if the truckers just stopped driving? The average grocery store has just a two day food supply.

    Technology has given us much to be thankful for, but are we now just too dependent on it?

    In answer to your question, I think we could go back to the old ways if we had to pretty quickly. Some of those pioneer genes still have to be hanging around somewhere in us.

    I know what you are saying bob but the truth is 90% of the population couldn't saluter a chicken, pig, or deer. Of the 10% that did manage the act most probably couldn't cure the meat or make sausages. I've got enough powder and precasts to reload about 500 9mm rounds and maybe 100 rifle and 100 shotgun rounds, that's not going to last my lifetime, or maybe it would....LOL

    Most of us can grow a vegetable garden but I sure can't grow enough to sustain my family for more than a couple of months and if if disaster struck tomorrow how many on this forum has a sack of each - corn, wheat, vegetable seeds in their larder. I'd hazard a guess at no one. How are you going to heat your house, it's not going to be with wood for more than a season if you live somewhere like central Missouri they burned the trees already.

    I spent summers on my uncles ranch in Grand Forks when I was a kid, no running water, no hydro, no radio, no refrigeration, no nothing - including heat. They cooked on a wood stove and every Friday we had to haul and heat enough water so everyone could take a bath, you didn't want to be visitor number nine to the tub, by then the water was dirty and ice cold. They actually lived well but it was a hard life. Squash grew very well there and was the vegetable of choice, my cousin and I still gag at the sight of it.

    If technology ceased tomorrow I'd be saying " Why the F did I go on this damn diet last month, I'm starving?"...

    Have a good New Years Guys..

    someone was messing with you when they showed yoy how to clean the duck, all you have to do whether it be duck, goose, or turkey is cut below the neck at the top of the breast and peel everything back, fillet the breasts, legs, and wings and you are done, no need to even get to the guts

    Start of rant.....oh and Katrina did not show what people do or how they act when there is a disaster. There have been several times before and after where people did not act like that. All you can say is that the people who stayed against advice who were wanting to pick up their welfare checks the next day and previously made no worthwile contributions to society and then just sat around bitching instead of putting one foot in front of the other and showing a little independence acted. But who can blame them they were raised in the ultimate liberal democrats dream society created by a liberal dependency philosophy. Over the years they were naturally selected for traits of dependency, sloth, laziness, lack of responsibility, lack of achievement, lack of independence, lack of a paternal bonding, lack of work ethic, lack of intellect, lack of community responsibility, and lack of self respect. It was a mini little darwinian life lesson. Kind of like what is happpening in Europe right now. Funny how those who created the problem miss the obvious lessons from katrina. End of rant!

    I don't think those who created the problem missed anything, they managed to get their checks deposited.
    Often Lukamar your posts walk a fine line between sarcasm and humor, splashed with common sense and mastery of the obvious.

    I lived down there for many many years. The folks down there are no differnt then anywhere else in this big old world my friend. They are hard working, funny, and as independent as any other group of folks. Yes we saw some terrible behaviour, but we also saw heroic acts. The blame and shame of what happened after Katrina is big enough to share with all those involved, including the folks who ignored warnings, and a goverment that was ill prepared to deal with such a devastating natural disaster.

    I tracked you down to give you happy New Year's reps, Mark, and found a thread started by a fellow Columbian. I can't rep you, however, because the system won't let me. What else is new?

    To the thread starter. I'm sure you'd be surprised at how resourceful people would be if they absolutely had to provide for themselves, sans technology. However, since we don't -- thank God for the Fresh Market.

    As an aside, I have often wondered how ugly I would be if I lived during a time period with no electricity for my hairdryer, or *gasp* no makeup.

    The problem with technology is that we become to dependent on it.

    Anyone here (I'm sure all of you have) had their PC systems crash at work? In some businesses this is an ugly thing, as little work can be done without a PC. You kinda feel stupid when a piece of electronic equipment can single handedly destroy your day. When I worked for an airline there were a few times where Flight Control's systems crashed (and the back up didn't work)...which meant no dispatches (weather, flight plans etc..) could be retrieved...which meant no planes taking off....which meant hundreds of thousands of people's lives altered. Ugly, indeed.
