Ice and Clothes

What country are you from?
Does your fridge have an automatic ice maker/machine thingy?
Do you hang your laundry out on clothes lines?
Do you have a clothes dryer? When do you use it?
Do you have a clothes horse and use it?
Are you creeped out by clothes hanging outside/in a public room of the house?

I ask because I've just had a conversation with someone who was saying that the kids she teaches laughs at  her because she 'makes ice cubes  the old fashioned way' and I was  like '...  what way do THEY make them?' and she informed me that almost all fridges have automatic ice makers. I don't know anyone with an ice maker in their fridge. And then she was saying something about how the kids were shocked when they found out that people hang their clothes out to dry rather than using a dryer.  All the people I know hang it outside, and in winter/rain, use a  clothes horse inside. Most people I know don't have a clothes dryer, or if they do they only seem to use it in emergencies. I'm in Australia. I'm also often shocked by lack of dual flush toilets, but we've been over that one before.

edit: So are the kids she's teaching just in a rich area or something, or... (They don't sound very rich.  Except for apparently being horrified by  clothes hanging outside/in a public room of the house, and apparently thinking icecube trays are hilarious)
