I could live without AC or indoor plumbing. Refrigeration would be tougher. But I think motor transportation would be the hardest thing to live without. We are all so used to jumping in the car and going somewhere we don't realize how long it would take if we had to hitch up horses or ride bikes to get there.
I'd hate to choose-10 miles is a loooong way without a car- 104(?) here yesterday- flushtolets/running water have lowered the incedencs of disease-- I think I'd choose electricity,there's so much you can do with it>
I'm just glad to live now. think about how the Grandparents had to live.. Now,push a button,you've got so much power at your beck and call. We control inside weather/distance..We talk to friends thousands of miles away. We see things that never existed(movies) Vaccines so that our kids don't die by the hundreds.All in all,despite the problems,now is a good time
