Do we take things for granted?

Facebook London Science Museum Survey

Having seen London Science Museum’s latest survey this weekend, I am gobsmacked!

In conjunction with their latest exhibit, Water Wars: Fight the Food Crisis, the London Science Museum surveyed 3000 adults to find out what they couldn’t live without.

It would seem that an internet connection is more important than clean drinking water, Facebook is more important than the NHS or Fresh Fruit and Vegetables. And, email is more important than a light bulb! At least public transport beat E-Bay and twitter!

Who were these 3000 adults!

Here are the results:-

  1. Sunshine
  2. Internet connection
  3. Clean drinking water
  4. Fridge
  5. Twitter

    Having just moved to Greece from the UK, I’ve had to leave behind a lot of the things I’ve been used to such as central heating (it apparently gets cold here in the winter and I have no form of heating at all!) and vacuum cleaner – just treated myself to the primitive equivalent, a sweeping brush.

    I do have a reasonable internet connection which is cool because I work mostly online as a freelance writer. This also allows me to keep in touch with my kids and friends back in the UK.

    Although there are loads of things you can’t get here (such as Marmite) and the supermarkets are tiny with a limited range of (very costly) products, I’m looking forward to leading a simpler life. I don’t watch TV but I’m really looking forward to my speakers arriving so that I can listen to Spotify with a better sound quality.

    There are flushing toilets here (but the paper needs to go in a bin!). As I’m on a small island, there’s no public transport, so it will be Shanks’ Pony for me until I save enough to buy a scooter.

    However, the sun is shining, which topped the list, the views are cool and it’s warm enough still to spend a lot of time outdoors.
