1) Would many of your questions go unanswered? Not really, because I don't tend to turn to the forums for advice unless it's photographic. I'm pretty sure I'd be a lot better off though, because I wouldn't have spent so much on cameras. 2) Would you be more lonely? Well I wouldn't have a Leon, and that would suck big time. However, I would still have the same amount of friends, just in different places. They probably wouldn't be as such high quality as the friends I've met here though 3) Would you understand yourself less, or be less confident? Neither of these issues would be affected.
