      Water, it is the most important thing to live. You can live for sometime without food but can't without water.
      But May I know in which sense are you asking this question in forum.

          AIG is a great company to gamble with, but it's not the kind of company I would ever own long term. This is quite upsetting indeed.

            I would choose water, you are more likely to be able to find some source of food than clean water and once you start to dehydrate you are in big trouble.

            I believe you can keep going longer without any food, so yeah id choose water based on what i know.

              Water. I can bathe in water, brush my teeth with it, and water can help detoxify organs. Food: not so much. Also, you can buy seeds or beg someone to spare you sprouts and you grow food with... water.

                From the article: "it would be raising rates by 51%. It would mean more than $750,000 in additional revenue a year, just from 8,000 customers."

                Honestly, the messed-up billing system and the wrongly-assessed late fees would make me a lot madder than the increase in price. I mean, yeah, it's an increase, but if I had to choose between spending $7.81 more a month to keep my water on, or food, I'd definitely choose to cut back on the food budget by $7.81 a month and keep the water.
