Whats The 1 Thing You Cant Live Without?

Recommended Posts

im moving house in 6 days time. relocating from cardiff to edinburgh. till our place here sells were having to move into a smaller rented place so consequently, weve sold off a large amount of our furniture so that we dont have to pay to put it into storage.

 

last saturday we sold our fridge.

 

for 7 days, i have been without the ability to keep refrigerated goods and ive learned something about myself.

 

i cant go without milk. none of this UHT / dried powdered milk sh*te. thats not milk, thats a tease. having tried that in my tea/cereal id sooner suck the jizz from a donkeys nut sack

 

im talking about proper cowbell/wiseman semi skimmed milk.

 

i need it in my tea, in my coffee, in my cereal, in scrambled eggs, in mashed potato, in angel delight....even just as a chilled glass of milk to drink.

 

im not missing a lot, but the lack of milk is really starting to piss me off. ive been conducting various experiments with 1 pint cartons to see how easy it is to keep cold. my current plan has me filling the sink with water, then using a weight to keep the plastic tub under. its far from great as the air inside the carton seems to keep the milk warm rather than the cold water cooling it down (physics was never my strong suit).

 

 

so my long winded question is what small pleasure do you think you couldnt do without.

Internet-ready computers.

 

Not only couldn't I work (my preferred job) without them, I'd lose access to the brutal porn that I favour, access to Aberdeen games, my hobbies (which include the brutal porn i was talking about), games, real-time communication with family and friends, proper news (what passes for news in the American media is less reliable and more biased than a dissertation on International Jewry by Daytripping and Bluto), music, movies, non-local radio, data on Russian crop yields, paying bills online, and access to the brutal porn that I favour.

 

I once watched a chick get her tits nailed to a workbench. On the internets. What chance of seeing that sort of thing without the internets?

 

Nailed to a f**king Black and Decker Handyman Workbench!

 

I also saw a Japanese porn movie that can't ever be unseen... ever :(

 

All on the internets.

I'm with you robbo on the milk front.

 

I was doon south staying with a friend awhile ago. She's a vegan, which isn't a problem, i'll eat anything and everything that's put in front of me. But these soy and rice milk alternatives are rank rotten.

 

I can't live without tea/semi-skimmed milk.

Beer.

 

Imagine a world without beer? :unsure:

 

do you watch archer on 5*

 

f**king incredible show.

 

he had similar sentiments on beer. they had packed a cooler full of water and food for a journey into the everglades. they open it up and find archer has replaced it all with bottles of beer and dry ice. the woman agent asks why did you replace all the food with beer. his reply was brilliant.

 

"if i brought food, i wouldnt have room for beer....and since i cant catch beer..."

 

:laughing:

Insulin.

 

Topical yet highly accurate.

 

Amazing to think that something we need for life is also something that can take it away.

 

Nitrogen is the one that amazes me. The air we breath is approx 79% Nitrogen yet one gulp of 100% Nitrogen and you're deid.

 

LIfe is so finely balanced.

 

I'd be lost without my platinum bank and air miles cards.

I'd be lost without my sense of direction.

 

If I do lose that, I carry a compass in my coat.

 

Be prepared.

 

Don't whatever you do carry a fridge magnet in your other pocket or you'll just go round in circles.

 

Or is it a compass for drawing circles you have in your pocket?

Both.

 

Thanks for the fridge magnet tip. You can never have too much information.

 

No problem.

 

Also remember if the magnet is in your right pocket it will point North but if it's in your left it will point South.

 

It's all to do with opposites attracting.

 

Plenty orienteers have been lost by not knowing that.

For me it's a global chefs knife, know that sounds weird but only got one of these (pretty expensive) knifes and makes any cooking and stuff way easier (sharp as f**k).

 

On the milk front what about a mini fridge thing? You get really little ones (
