Re: What would loopers do without power?

Or what might happen when we pass through the center of the galactic plane on 12/21/12 at 11:11....

You are exactly right, Travis. Not to get to sci-fi, but in the extreme sense my question assumed some electro-magnetic phenomenon that prevented any generation of electricity  - though I know that is very unlikely - but hey, think of The Day the Earth Stood Still on steroids! :)

It seems that the question "What would loopers do without power?" is often being interpreted as "What would loopers do if the power company could no longer provide electricity?", hence all the answers of "I would find a way to generate electricity myself and continue looping!!"

To me that doesn't seem to be really "doing without power".

So, let's say hypothetically a major catastrophe occurred in the next 2-3 decades, and power became non-existent (unlikely) or highly scarce. For example, suppose we all had to rely on solar panels and wind power, and powering an amp and looper was a complete luxury and out of the question.

What would you do?
