the Earth lost electrical power which in turn affected fuel systems which would knock us back 100+ years to the day of Horses and buggies with no Internet, TV, Video Games, Phones, Texting, etc.

Would we be able to survive as they did 100+ years ago where the most popular job was farming?

Horses & buggies I'm not sure, but I bet if I had no internet etc. I would be able to enjoy more things in life instead of being on the laptop/watching tv all the time

I have a few guns, so I know I will survive.

As a parent I try and make my children's lives as active and non tv, video game etc etc as poss. There are lots of other things to do that don't involved other than the above mentioned. It's all about being motivated and making the effort. Whilst gaming and tv is cool... Why not try geocaching?! Ah ha!

Some may survive, but we live in the age of electronics. We use them for everything, a lot of people would have problems adapting to it

Hell, people survive short periods of this at different times. I went without power for 3 days during Hurricane Francis and others have done the same in other natural disasters.

Ever played Fallout?

Kinda like that but VATS mode doesn't exist.

This level 50 True Mortal is good to go then 'cause I don't use VATS.

And I guess wrestling pro wrestling would go back to its carnival days? And we of course would still have backyard wrestling and Omega!

I would probably go crazy. Everything that I am entertained by is electronic. Well, actually I could probably pick up reading pretty quickly.

Though I have a lot of on-screen entertainment, as long as I have books, I'll survive.
