Lack of internet can drive one nutz for a while until one gets back to normal routines of doing other things that is not web based.

If memory serves, TP-LINK is a Chinese company, not a UK one.
Also, the actual question from the survey is not mentioned, so it's not clear on what basis is Internet Access more important than food and shelter.
Finally, why is it strange that it's more important than sex?? Internet access is vital nowadays for work and for staying informed and in touch with the world. Of course it's more important than sex (maybe not psychologically, but practicaly :p )!! It's like saying that your job is more important than a haircut...

Fixxxer... Sex came first apparently.

I think we can assume that this is bull. Starve em for a week then ask them if they want a chip butty or internet for an hour.

when the post-apocalyptic world hits...people in developed countries will be the first to die off....we have no survival skills whatsoever. I think people had life way to care free for the past years. People take food and shelter for granted...but its not the case..you could lose it all in a heartbeat...then we'll talk.

Put that 42% in the elements for a week without food water or shelter and see how they change their minds. Sounds like a bunch of fat lazy introverts that have never been in the woods other than to take a leak after whining about no bathroom close by.

eiskrystal and fixxxer113 make valid points. Unless one has had to contend
with serious hunger and lack of shelter, I hardly think a survey can expect
to receive sensible responses from such a question, whatever it was.

In other words, most UK men value food and shelter over internet and sex.

(depending on what the actual question was)

You can't compare something you need vs something you want. The idea is that people live their lives in many ways to automatically accomodate they basic need for food and shelter. So you will always value it because you need to, but like alidan in the comments said, I want to live a quality life not just live life, so the survey itself is a bit flawed because food and shelter are a backbone obvious NEED. Does that make sense?

I agree with most of the other commenters, stupid survey. You can't accurate pit a necessity over a luxury and expect people to pick the necessity, especially when they don't usually have to think about it because they ensure it due to instinct. It's like asking would you rather breath or use the internet?

Meh, I am looking forward to ED. Sex has seldom been any real benefit to my life and I am tired of being slave to it. If sex is off the table, the utility of the internet goes down by half at least.

The point here is that all men know that finding food and shelter is far easier and cheaper in western society that they don't have to worry about it. While they are still top priority, this ease of use allows for less stress on the matters. It's just 42% of men are too stupid to differentiate between less stress and less importance. Quite frankly, I'm surprised this percentage isn't higher, considering the number idiots I deal with on a daily basis.

I recently had both of my home PCs die on me and didn't replace them for over a month. It was actually pretty liberating to go without a computer and I was much more productive (if a little bored occasionally). It really made me realize how terrible TV is.

Of course I don't use social media so it was probably easier for me than it would be for most people.

Remember, this is the UK, not California. Most of the people are intellectual gentlemen. The rest are... named Clarkson, May, or Hammond.

Yep, until we know the question posed to the respondents, any report on their answer is meaningless. We can't even be sure that most of the men in the survey understood that food and shelter were on the table. Hell, access to the internet (or, for that matter, regular access to sex) basically presupposes comfortable access to food and shelter.
