in reply to poll ideas quest 2010

If I moved to the Past, what I missed the most would be…

  • nothing, I'd like to live there
  • education
  • sugar, potatoes, maize
  • hygenie
  • effective medical assistance
  • freedom
  • equality
  • plastics
  • mass-produced clothes
  • rock music
  • TV
  • junk food
  • computers
  • mobile phones
  • internet

Update: fixed spelling of hygiene, as requested by Xilman.

Update 2012-04-05: this overlaps with a later poll idea Re: poll ideas quest 2012 (What will you miss the most in a post-apocalyptic world?).

Update 2015-07-10: see also other ideas: Re: poll ideas quest 2011 (modern household appliances) "I can't imagine how I could ever live without an…" and Re^3: poll ideas quest 2011 (modern car extras).

    For cleanliness' sake, please spell hygiene in the conventional manner if this poll and option goes ahead.
