Your Top 3 Monthly Contest April 2020 - Top 3 Lockdown Essentials

in yourtop3 •  4 months ago 


This is my entry into this month’s Top 3 contest.

This months topic is Top 3 Lockdown Essentials

So many things to choose from :) but when it comes down to it, there are only a few things that humans cannot live without in a survival situation. Thankfully we have not reached this level of desperation yet for most humans, even with this pandemic all around us... So for the current times we live in here are my top 3 lockdown essentials :)

My Nominations are:

Nomination Number One

A computer

My Reasons for the Nomination

For most humans in this day and age it is almost impossible to live without some sort of computing device, to look up information, news, stay in touch with friends/family, play games, watch videos/movies, etc. Even without internet access there are all kinds of creative things you can do on a computer, for me it has always been creating digital art of some sort :)

Nomination Number Two

Potatoes

My Reasons for the Nomination

The obvious answer to this is just food in general, kind of important for human survival ;) I decided to go with potatoes because they are delicious, and I like fries. Also if this pandemic turns into a zombie apocalypse and we are stuck at home for real, potatoes are an easy survival food to grow and store. They can be stored in a dark cool place and you can easily grow more potatoes from smaller pieces of cut up potatoes.

Nomination Number Three

Solar Panels

My Reasons for the Nomination

Electricity is something most people don't even think about these days, until you are forced into a situation when you lose it for more than a day, you quickly realize how fucked you really are without it. Unfortunately we do not have solar panels on our home but I wish we did, because as long as the sun is shining you can always have electrical power for your essential needs, even if your power company is overrun by a horde of zombies...

Good luck on surviving this pandemic everyone!

Excellent choices. I wish we could have solar power. We do have a solar water heater. But here's the thing: no power = no hot water. The pump uses electricity to get the water from the pipes into the geyser. Ahem...

Actually, if I had the money, I'd be looking into wind power. We get wind every day. Especially in winter.

Definitely, wind and solar power are the future of electricity, wind is always blowing and sun is always shining somewhere on earth :)

Ooh, potatoes. I suppose I need to add those to the next shopping list as we are fresh out at the moment. It's about time for some grilled fries, isn't it?

Yes! :)

Potato potatooooo! Definitely an under rated nomination there, so versatile, love fries and crisps (I'm from the UK)! I see you went with the zombie apocalypse theme here but renewable energy sources are where it's at. They just need to make solar a little more efficient (and we'd need a bit more sunshine in the UK) for them to be "mainstream".

Please tell me that isn't your computer above? 😃

You keep the HP and then transfer the HIVE and/or HBD (whichever is paid out at the time) to @yourtop3 with a link to your blog post entry in the transfer memo. This is the minimum entry fee, but you can add as much as you like to it! The more you add, the more you can win.There is no maximum entry fee.

Not sure how to find your post payout? Look in your Hive Wallet under Author Rewards to find the exact payout for your post.

I take it from there and convert all of the prize pool to SBD for easy prize distribution at the end of the month!

Nice post @dksart

It occurred to me the other day that everything as we know it hinges on electricity. A scary thought if we hit another level and that goes down.

Love spuds!!

Good luck.
