Hell yeah to both of them. Imagine if your one of the survivors, and you have children who grow up in that world. Trying to explain to them the world we live in now. Like in a world where hunger is common to tell them there was once a TV show were a guy over ate, just to see if he could. Or trying to sing to them one of your favorite songs.

The internet!

We've really taken for granted how easy it is to learn about anything we want to in seconds.

Nowadays if we want to learn, say...how many troops North Korea can field (just for a relevant example xD) we just type "How big is North Korea's army?" or something into google.

Before the internet, you'd have to drag your ass to the library and...Jeez, I don't even know what then. Dig through books and hope one of them had some dated figures that estimated their military strength?

Yep, I would really miss the interwebs.

I think there's pretty good chance that the inet hubs might be a target of NK. It makes sense. If they really want to hurt us, that might be it.

Tampons.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it.

I am an evil giraffe, and I shall eat more leaves from this tree than perhaps I should, so that other giraffes may die.

Hot running water

You can adjust to no internet -- you read a lot. (Hope you're stocked up on books).

You can adjust to no electricity -- you read by oil lamp/ kerosene lantern/ candlelight (hope you're stocked up on batteries, lamp oil, and kerosene).

Keeping yourself up to your accustomed level of hygiene without hot running water on demand -- that will be the worst.

You will have to haul your own water to cook, bathe, wash dishes & clothes. Modern people don't understand why our ancestors only bathed once a week. I do. I had access to a nearby place with hot running water, and electricity, but for over 5 years I lived without electricity, internet, or even a real toilet.

The blessing of limitless, steaming water pouring into a bath tub whenever you want -- hell, I think I might go take a bath right now. You have no idea how much to appreciate it until you've gone without.
