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 2012-10-20: and the post-apocalyptic poll is done: What would 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.

    It would be difficult to answer without knowing which time period "the Past" refers to.
