    If you survived a Doomsday scenario, what 3 modern conveniences would you try to reestablish first?

    Picture one of those post-apocalyptic movies or books where governments break down and everything technology-based stops being operational and humans basically have to start over with the remnants of what's left. Let's consider government/rule of law as a possible "convenience" option for the question.

    1. Good drinking water. I get thirsty easily.
    2. Toilet paper (I've been without, and don't like it!)
    3. Printing. Rebuilding civilization would be tough without it.

    - My connection to HubPages -

    - My connection to "Cable TV" - Just because the world has conveniently decided to end without my consent or permission doesn't mean I need to miss the latest episodes of everyone's favs like "Ghost Hunters" Ghost Adventures" "Ghost Lab" "My Ghost Story" "Celebrity Ghost Stories" "Casper The Friendly Ghost".. Or re-runs of blockbuster silver screen award winning productions like "Ghost Busters" "The Ghost & Mrs Muir" "Ghost" and my all time fav "Ghosts of Mars" ... -

    - A "Phone Book" So I could establish personal contact with those "Dual Survival" Guys....I think under these circumstances we all need to learn how to make fire by rubbing a toothpick and swatch of steel wool together....And believe me, finding a toothpick is the easy part but those "Steel Wool" trees are few and far between out in the wild.... -
