Piece of Cake

Some people seem to want to do an experiment to see if the whole world can go one entire day without turning on their computers. For Shomrei Shabbat (those who observe Shabbat) this should be a piece of cake.

Do you think you can do it?

If I'm home when Shabbos ends I usually check my e-mail before I make Havdalah.

Haha well I think we should have to do this experimen any other day, it would be a good test for me atleast.

If it's not for some nobler reason like G-d, why???

Diana,
It should be pretty easy to refrain from checking e mail for a couple hours more after Shabbas.

SWFM & Rebecca,
I think that is the point. To see if people can survive a whole day "unplugged". We do it anyway every week.

I would not. I get the shakes around Mincha time on Shabbos. ;)

I went to a concert right after Shabbos, and didn't get home until after midnight! I did it!

Totally unintentionally though.
