How will our life be without all kinds of machine?

As science and technology is developing fast, we are becoming more and more dependent on all kinds machines.Yesterday evening,as we had left more than thirty clothes unwashed,I had to follow my wife's "command"to wash the clothes.After I put all the clothes into the washing machine and put some washing powder into it,I pressed the power button.But the machine didn't work.I tried again and again, but still,I had no way to make it wash the clothes for me.So I called the factory to send some people to mend it.The took it back this morning and told me that I had to wait until it was sent back. As consequence,I had to wash the clothes one by one with my hands. I think nowadays we sometimes could do nothing without morden machine and electricity.In the morning, the first thing some people do is to turn on his or her computer instead of brushing teeth.While at night,the last thing before falling asleep may also be something with computer or cellphone. One day, I even noticed an interesting affair with my neighbor.His wife was in the room on the second floor,and he just wanted to ask her to go downstairs.He just called her with his cellphone instead of going upstairs. With the help of machine,have we become lazier?

It is really hard to imagine our life and work without those machines we use daily. I appreciate the helpful and useful machines ever invented. It offers us a lot of convenience with the use of those machines. The examples you gave here have well stated the wonderful work the machines are doing for us humans. While they make us lazy, they have perfectly improved the working efficiency. I cannnot help loving them.

I don't see machines making me lazy at all. there is no machine cleaning my house for me or washing my body for that matter. I do all the cooking myself with the help of a frying pan and pots. I think a cell phone might make some lazy though.

Machines have obviously made our life easier and comfortable. There are certainly a lot of advantages and one of them is comfort and ease. It has also provided us many alternatives to enjoyment and fun. The sad thing is that it has also affect our health as we no longer walk, run or do most physical activities like we do before. True indeed it has make us lazy yet productive.

I have to agree with you. Machines were made to make life easier and of course, as a secondary effect, machines also made man lazier. But we should also recognize that without those machines, it would take time to make a car, construct building etc. But for me, being lazy is not one thing that machines/technology has brought to us.
