    What three things would you take with you if you were going to be stranded on an desert island for three months?

      3 genies in a bottle. If they all gave me 3 wishes, I could wish for more genies until I had enough wishes to get anything I fancied... but I guess that's cheating! tongue

      How about a pencil, a desk and a blank piece of paper... I could easily spend 3 months staring at the piece of paper, thinking about writing my book! big_smile

      Sun block
      A knife

        IzzyMposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        OK the mirror is so you can see if anyone(thing) is creeping up behind you.
        The knife is to stab it if its edible.
        The sunblock?
        I suppose if it's spray on you could use it as a weapon??

              or you could turn it upside down and collect rainwater?

          goldenpathposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          Well, if there's no trees it might come in handy.  Also, if there is a lemonade dispenser indigenous to the island a good umbrella might make the passing of the time more enjoyable! smile

    Your question is a question that's subjective. Meaning the word things?

    As in, if the things are small enough to carry multiples of, do they count as one or are each individually separate items?

    If you counts these things as individual things, then one person would essentially only carry 3 things, as per your statement.

    Example: I plan on taking a gun(is the ammo another thing?) I could in theory, fill my pockets with ammunition, plus have the gun already loaded. I could also want to take bubble gum to chew, so I only get one piece?

    However, if I had to choose exactly 3 things - I would choose to take a hunting knife, 200' rope and one quick fire rifle(w ammo. to boot)

    But, it's only in theory. smile big_smile tongue

      sophsposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Oh there's always one! lol :p you can have  a loaded gun... this is one 'thing', you can have one box (or whatever ammunition comes in), this would be 1 'thing', and one full packet of bubble gum, this would also be one 'thing' :-)

    My eyeglasses - contacts wouldn't cut it plus, aside from actually being able to see things, I could use them to start a fire, a really big sharp knife, and my husband (lol- even if he didn't want to go). I know - practical but I do want to live smile

    Survival?
    All is need is my internet access and if I meet a wild creature I will look up a hub on how to deal with it.
    Oh and I'll read the food hubs on what I will eat after the three months are up - I'll return home skinny of course - you can survive three months without food, but not without water. There needs to be a fresh water supply on this island.
