    Default If you were to be stranded on a desert island for the next 10 years...

    All questions are independant of each other. answer one, all, or none. it's always interesting to see even the smallest detail about someone you know =P

    1. What would be the five items you would take?

    2. If you could only bring five books, what would you take?

    3. If a television/DVD player was provided with an electricity source, which 5 discs would you take?

    4. If you could only drink/eat 5 foods/drinks, what would they be?

    5. If you could have an unlimited supply of any SINGLE drug, what would it be?

    I'll start us off, here's my answer to the first question... i elaborated a bit =0 I posted this at 2 AM so I haven't gotten the chance to answer all of the questions myself yet.

    1. low-maintenance Knife, 40 gallon rain barrel, laptop with solar rechargable battery, and my red berkshire blanket.

    I chose the knife to craft other tools with it, to harvest, to filet fish, and possibly hunt.
    The 40 gallon rain barrel to collect water and perhaps make alcohol with it at some later point.
    The laptop and solar battery is so that I can continue to write; being in seclusion and with nothing else but survival at stake will make me appreciate writing. If it's my current laptop I will be able to learn seven new languages and listen to music as well. I just hope it lives to the end of the ten years.
    I chose the blanket over a sleeping bag because to me, this blanket gives a sense of security. It's probably the only bit of "home" that i could ever bring with me. I've had the same blanket now ever since I was twelve and when I go to sleep I expect it to be there. If I were to randomly crash on a desert island, there's a good chance that this blanket would be with me anyways since I bring it on all trips.

    1. What would be the five items you would take?
    Fantasy List:
    1. A lightsaber->For fun! For defence! For slaug-wut?
    2. Pocket Desalination Plant->Convert sea water to fresh water, yummy
    3. Wormhole creator->So I can pop back to my own home any time I get bored.
    4. 3 truckloads of tools->Good for building a functional base complete with raw materials being mined from the island, though I doubt I'll get very much.
    5. The whole bio-computing team of Sequential Art (5C4RL37, 4MB3R, J4D3 and VI0l37). They can probably build something crazy that will blow us all up.

    Realistic list:
    1. Twin pair of samurai swords (heard they don't need to be sharpened for decades O.O) for self-defense (HARAKIRI-ack-).
    2. Low-tech distillation stuff: 1 large plastic sheet.
    3. Probably some tools in a toolbox (1 item :D) for building shelter.
    4. Solar panels with rechargable batteries.
    5. Night vision googles.


    2. If you could only bring five books, what would you take?
    Zee Bible, Sequential Art comic books, Dilbert comic books, Warriors Series, and 'How to get out of a desert island after being stranded on one for 10 years' For DUMMIES. I have a hunch the last one will come in useful.

    3. If a television/DVD player was provided with an electricity source, which 5 discs would you take?
    LOTR, Matrix, SW Sequels, Ratatoullie, and probably Megamind.


    4. If you could only drink/eat 5 foods/drinks, what would they be?
    Pizza!! Wonton Mee, Char Kuai Tiao, Hokkien Mee (complete with chilli), and Mee Siam.

    5. If you could have an unlimited supply of any SINGLE drug, what would it be?
    *Serious pose* I don't do drugs.

    Got bored :)

    Got locked out of editing my own post >_<

    Anyway, if a mod sees this, delete the post above. This was supposed to be the post I wanted to have after editing.

    Continuation of my first post =P

    2. If you could only bring five books, what would you take?

    Combat Medic's Field Guide, C++ for dummies, Catcher in the Rye, "The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need," and The Da Vinci Code

    3. If a television/DVD player was provided with an electricity source, which 5 discs would you take?

    The Godfather part 1, The Godfather Part 2, Erin Brockovich, Kill Bill Vol. 2, Cast Away

    You may ask yourself, "Why kill bill vol 2 and not 1?" The main reason for this is that it brings closure to the story, even though there's going to be a 3rd installment of the movie (with a revenger story separate to Beatrix's). It also kills off the good characters. If I had a sixth pick, it would probably be volume 1.

    Then you may wonder how I could say that and not include the third Godfather. If you're asking this question, you've never seen the third godfather =P. There's perfect closure at the end of the second one, the third one was just made because of blind executives wanting to squeeze more money out of the franchise instead of investing in something new.

    4. If you could only drink/eat 5 foods/drinks, what would they be?
    SoBe citrus, water, kiwi fruit, chicken, black forest Promax protein bars.

    5. If you could have an unlimited supply of any SINGLE drug, what would it be?
    Aspirin

    I LOL'd at solar panel batteries and night vision goggles. Your lists are impractical and awesome at the same time
