Facebook's ever-growing popularity and pervasiveness seems to be changing our priorities in today's society, according to one British survey.

The Daily Mail reports that a survey of 3,000 adults found people prioritized Facebook above having a stove, a flushing toilet and a shower.

The survey, conducted by One Poll for London's Science Museum, was originally part of the museum's new exhibition on the necessity of fresh water. Each participant was asked what they couldn't live without. The results of the study were a bit of a shock, prompting the museum's Exhibition Manager, Sarah Richardson, to describe the results as 'crazy.'

"Brits are obsessed by the weather, so it's not surprising sunshine was rated as the top thing we couldn't live without," said Richardson in The Daily Mail. "But to say you can't live without material things over drinking water is crazy."

As Richardson mentioned, sunshine topped the list as a necessity, followed by Internet connection, clean drinking water, a refrigerator and Facebook.

Facebook's social media competitor Twitter was ranked 50th on the list, indicating that Brits are much more attached to posting on people's walls than sending out 140 character updates.

It shouldn't be surprising that Facebook is so highly valued as experts have talked in recent months about how refusing to engage with others on Facebook can have a significant social cost. That still doesn't explain how an Internet connection is thought to be more critical than drinkable water.
