    Default Do we take things for granted?

    Wow nowadays we have so much to rely on - such as computers, video games, and other fun things, but, how did people survive back then in the early years with no technology.

    It would of seemed super boring back then with such weak and boring things to do.

    That's my question....

    Do you think, we take way too much for granted. Could be oil, computers, water, or even GRAVITY.

    It was so simple back then but also their was nothing to really take for granted. Nowadays people take so much for granted and it turns my stomach sometimes.

    People take so much for granted....when the two things people should really care about is family and survival, just like in the early days.

    I pretty much take everything for granted. It's just my nature. It's because I'm used to getting my way. I really need to stop being like that though.



    Bring me back!!!

    It's rather natural for just about every individual to take things for granted, but as a famous author once said: "It's sad that we never know what we have until the moment of departure." Sadly, only very few can appreciate things day after day as though it was the last, usually because they once lost it, or because they keep in mind just how terrifying the loss of that something or someone can be.

    "They say that if you love something 'let it go' and if it never returns it was never yours. But no one ever tells you that this is only true for an earnest and humble heart. Others can solely afford to chase with scarred hands of true repentance and a now-worthy heart."

    Of course we do. Though to be fair, I'd rather be able to take things for granted because our lives are easier than have to work at every little thing.

    Remember, being able to even sit and think about this question is proof that the answer's yes.

    i agree with Koki completly. Can you imagine where we would be without all these things? And to think that technology is constantly growing stronger, but the real question is, is it too strong?

    I think we do - we depend on all that technology to entertain us and help work, and I for one would go insane if I didn't have technology around me.

    I don't really like to think that we take things for granted...but we terribly do. I mean, as technology climbs its way up to heaven - we are digging earth and eating our own species =_=||| At school, we waste about 4-5 papers per day - each student. We're probably neglecting everything that's important as we entertain ourselves with "intelligence". O_O

    Yes.. we're ungrateful.
    Because we've forgotten what we can achieve in life.
    Its a endless, brainwashing cycle that gets
    worse as the years go by and possessions grow more important then
    our own common sense. Money, apperence, domonance. These things
    blind us from simple things in our lives that can allow us to be happy and at peace.

    Of course, I know I certainly take the net for granted, because when it goes down, it feel so different actually doing something productive with my time, and not wasting it on h2.

    Well of course.

    Think about what life was like 100 years ago? Or even 50 years? Or 20?

    Well umm I don't agree with opening post. I for one enjoy having science and wouldn't trade it for anything. I think some people are forgetting the importance of family meals [just to name one] instead opting to have dinner in front of the TV etc. It's just something we have let slipped.

    As for "taking things for granted" I think we all forget how much we need to socalise. Company is the best!

    Yes we do take things for granted, most definitely. I do.

    The other day I wash flushing the chain to my toilet and I remembered that way back when people never had toilets in their own homes in my country. Instead they either done it in some bucket thing and threw it out of the window when it was full, or shared some crappy little cubicle with the whole neighbourhood which lead to diseases and such. I now cherish my own household toilet as a result to my own historical thinking.
    That which is; is the truth.

    For everyone that says we're ungrateful, how so? I'm not ungrateful for anything, and sometimes we tend to take stuff for granted, accidentally or on purpose. It doesn't necessarily mean we're ungrateful.

    I myself do, it's natural to me. I see everyone else do too. So, yes, of course we do.

    Yes, we do, and yes, we should.

    Every generation works to make life easier for the next, so not taking these things for granted and instead working for them is an insult to the work your forefathers have done.

    Being grateful for what you have is stupid, anti-progress and accomplishes nothing but a phony sense of satisfaction.

    I am by all means greatful for the things that I have and I cherish them too, but that is not to say that I do not take them for granted. I think of it differently though. I use these great and wonderful things that I have a lot because I am simply using resourses that some people that live in the 18th century and people that live in hot countries/continents do not have, and am simply making the most of the things that I do have.

    That is how I see it anyway. It makes me feel a lot better about it.
    That which is; is the truth.

    I am taking an experimental archaelogogy class at the moment. I have realized how much work goes into basic things.

    We have been doing weaving for the past week or so. It takes so long just to make a piece of fabric of a foot by three inches. I can do that in about five hours. Making an entire bit of clothing would take days if not months. You would not get bored, you might get tired of doing something; however, one would always have something to do in the past.

    We do take things for granted. I would like to spend a year in the wilderness and make everything I need.

    Working hard and appreciating everything you have already like it's some kind of idol is a little silly.

    But, yes, we take things for granted. And I think that's what the inventors wanted. Something people would use so often, it just becomes natural for the people who use them to not appreciate it.
    On this day of days, most epic and prideful, you were born 15 whole American years ago!
    Through the odds and by doing the impossible, you beat out hundreds of thousands of siblings in the great sperm race for the coveted egg.
    Probably via hax.
    Regardless! You won!
    So remember, whenever someone picks on you or calls you weak or small.
    Just remind them that you beat out a few hundred thousand other wimps.

    And the grand prize was not dying!

    I hate it when people take health for granted. Since I got arthritis and more stuff. Believe me I got a skin illness everyone finds it scared. But they all take they're skins for granted. Same of for they're body. It makes sick.

    Well, yes, we do. The problem is, we take both good and bad things. As in, the things that man kind achieved is okay, but when it comes to food, water and Earth's goods, we're real bastards.

    Hot gift from Midnight Rider Teh Great! Thank you :3

    Thank you for the awesome sig, Serated!
