did they go to bed early?

I wonder...
before there were TV, Internet and artificial light pollution, do people go to bed after isya'? and have enough rest?

before there were ready gas supplied direct to the stove, and they had to collect firewood, did they have less time for themselves?

before there were super sewing machines and rich designers, were the clothes comfortable and nice?

before there were PSPs and Wii or X-boxes, were the kids bored with nothing to do?

are we really the privileged ones?

plain expectations

Sometimes, we ask people a question, where we strongly expect a specific answer, and the person being questioned knows it, and feels obliged to provide that specific answer too, that it becomes, not a real question, but a request for comfort..

..which you may not necessarily get, if the person does NOT reply you with the expected answer.
