    You are only allowed to keep one of these for the rest of your life, you have to pick one to keep and live without the rest.

    A cozy shack on digital equivalent of the Outer Hebrides? Still with real libraries schools & hospitals - I think I could adapt & enjoy it.

    I suspect my children might burn me for warmth so long as they had the internet....

    Cant decide between the first and last. The rest are expendable.

    The heating for me. Apart from anything else, my son needs it for his health.


    Mobile phone - I have a landline and so do most of my neighbours. We still have a phone box on the main road too
    Car/motorbike - I've never been on a motorbike and I'm not starting now . Having a car is very useful, but I still have use of my legs, and I can get the bus or order a taxi if necessary. The bus stop is just around the corner, maybe two minutes walk.
    Alcohol - I'm teetotal . Now if you were talking about getting rid of black coffee....
    Pizza - I only eat it occasionally anyway.
    Computer/internet - now this was a difficult one, but the library is only a mile away, and they have computers. I could also borrow my son's laptop

    I live so close to a library that only common decency prevents me from using its wifi.
    I'm in the concrete island of London but grew up on area 4 cooler than here, so extra clothing solves the heating problem.
    I'm a biologist and as a hobby can be self-sufficient for alcohol.
    As a student I had to make my own pizzas from kits as refrigerator space was tiny in the 70s.
    Mobile phones are okay but I'm a late convert. Got a landline anyway.
    Cars; I've no driveway but got a free oyster card and London's got a great public transport system.
    I suppose that leaves computers, but I prefer old ones. They've deteriorated in the last decade. But hang on, my library's got them.
    So, I'm good, thanks.

    Lamp posts
    Rubber balls
    Bones
    Tummy rubs
    Favourite dog treat
    Running in the park (or wherever)

    need an answer
    Presumably I could still keep the mobile phone with internet access so don't need the computer?

    TBH ive been without all of those things at some point in my life and survived so i'll be bold and say you can take them all away!

    Don't see the attraction of rubber balls, I tend to just leave them lying.
    Not so keen on bones any more.
    I would miss tummy rubs but I can live without them.
    As I eat just about everything, I don't really have a favourite
    I just love to run when I get the chance so I would just have to keep that one
