    Marooned

    You are for whatever reason, about to be banished to a small tropical island with plenty of fresh water and food sources such as fruit, vegetables and fish. There is also plenty of natural materials for making a shelter. You are allowed to take 4 items with you besides a few clothing items. You are not allowed to take anything to escape the island such as radios, a boat, etc.
    What 4 items would you take?

    (Yes, I am bored )

    1. A book on how to fish, since I don't know how to do that.
    2. A book on how to build a fire, since I don't know how to do that.
    3. A book on how to build a shelter, since I don't know how to do that.
    4. A printout of other people's responses to this thread so I can realize what I should have brought instead of a bunch of books.

    1-a box of utensils...knives, forks, spoons etc...you have no idea how hard it is to make a good stew with no spoon
    2-a gigantic bottle of ibuprofen (fever, toothache, etc)
    3-Jenna Haze (complete with ball gag to shut her up when needed)
    4-the professor from gilligans island...I may need a radio made out of coconuts.
    500 fights, that's the number I figured when I was a kid. 500 street fights and you could consider yourself a legitimate tough guy. You need them for experience. To develop leather skin. So I got started. Of course along the way you stop thinking about being tough and all that. It stops being the point. You get past the silliness of it all. But then, after, you realize that's what you are.

    1. A hatchet

    2. a good all purpose knife

    3. Fishing net (or a handy pocket guide on how to make one)

    4. a cast iron pot.

    Fishing nets are a lot more reliable on bringing in fish, and can also double as a carry net for collecting supplies on land. It can also be hung from a tree to help keep the local scavengers out. Cast iron cookware is fantastic for using directly on and over fires, and can be used for frying, stews, teas, herbal concoctions, boiling drinking water, you name it. A smooth rock works well for sharpening the blades of the hatchet and knife, which in turn are used for making shelter and all the comforts of home.

    If I had a 5th option, I'd have someone with me.

He is the stuff of which legions are made. ...His pride is in his colors and his regiment, his training hard and thorough and coldly realistic, to fit him for what he must face...and his obedience is to his orders.

    That's why I would bring all three of 'em. They can't ALL have the "curse" at the same time.

    Can they?


    Oh well, I might need a break for a few days every month anyway.

    Yup, nature's funny that way.

    Of course, older women wouldn't have that problem.

    This may be a little off of the subject, but as the father of 2 daughters, I can say that if you are living with 3 women, you WANT them all on the cycle at the same time! Otherwise, with pre-menstrual, PMS and post menstrual, you have about 4 good days a month when someone besides you isn't psychotic!

    The cycles of women who live together actually tend to synchronize after awhile, possibly because their pheromones affect each other.

    That sure didn't happen at my house! My wife used to always ask why I had 2 or 3 jobs! My oldest daughter figured it out one day, but I swore her to secrecy!
