    Modern conveniences

    There were several times last week that I either had no hot water or water at all in my apartment.

    This thread topic is:

    If you have to decide on one modern convenience that you can't live without, which one would it be??

    -----------
    Some examples to get your brain rolling:
    - Computer
    - Indoor Plumbing
    - Car
    - Electricity

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    Re: Modern conveniences

    well electricity and computer go hand in hand.

    but i've lived without that stuff for a while cause of type of 'holiday' thing where i had to live in a shed for 2 weeks at times for breaks between terms and 4 weeks for summer holidays. only light at night was candles and a gas lamp. only hot water was gas heated. funny cause one time the gas water heater blew up and soot flew up in the air. funny but not when ur in the wheelbarrow having a bath. we also had the drink the tank rain water. i mean don't get me wrong tank rain water can be alright, if the tank is well maintain and u got good guttering where it's collected. but we didn't so it tasted like crap and we had to drink it (convince my mum and dad early of to get bottled water but it wasn't soon enough). yea this was my parents idea of a 'holiday', more like hell.

    but the thing i seriously couldn't live without would be plumbing. i mean no plumbing = no water and i need my water to live. plus i need my steaming hot showers in the morning otherwise i would never wake up. man those bad bad experiences where there has been no water, god never want to do that again and i can bet u feel the same way.

    But indoor plumbing also includes toilets!!! And if it rains all the time, your going to have problems digging your trench when you need to go...

    If I had to, I could live without a car. I mean, I don't own one right now and I quite enjoy walking . . . so I could live without a car. (I would just have to start walking earlier to get to the farther places. )

    No man, I asked which one you can't lived without. lol

    I think another very good one would be an alarm clock. Most of us have a biological clock but the way we live today that alarm clock inside us is as good as dead. And we can't have a rooster in our house everyday either.

    I would have to say indoor plumming. I have to take a shower everyday. I just feel nasty if I don't. I know that there are otherways of getting clean but I still love my shower. So that would be something that I couldn't live without.
