Sorry if I'm getting a little too serious but there's no doubt in my mind: Clean water. Just ask any of the millions of people in the world that don't have clean water today. It may be hard to imagine but without it, none of that other stuff matters. At all.

    Perversely, I think it would be such a huge problem, that it wouldn't be a problem for long... Either you don't get it, and you get sick and die, or you survive the first 6 - 18 months, and drinking water will be available again. Probably without the convenience, abundance and quality, but I think those things would follow.

    It seems to me like it would take much longer to get CPAN fixed or start making new episodes of Futurama.
