Who needs running water when you have your electronics? That's the conclusion of a British survey quoted in Dezeen. The results of a survey of a thousand people:
Asked which household utility they couldn't live without, 38% of respondents said they'd be most stressed out by not having internet access, while 32% said having no water would be their main priority and 18% said a lack of heating. No television was a top concern for just 8% of people, while 4% said they'd be most annoyed by a lack of washing machine.
That's pretty shocking; things have changed a bit in Britain since 1854. Would TreeHuggers poll in a similar fashion?
