...you will be placed on an uninhabited tropical island with 19 other people. You are allowed to take three days worth of clothes and five other items. What items would you choose and why?
1) Sun protection cream (lots of it)
2) My mobile phone -I like to keep in touch.
3) Insect repelent
4) A manicure set
5) Are the other 19 people male or female (should I take my rabbit or just a ton box of preservatives?)
1. Pack Of Razor Blades, you can use them to shave, cut etc.
2. Large first Aid Kit, just in case something happens sutures, salines etc are needed.
3. A Diary/with a pack of pen and pencils, seemingly since I have plenty of time on my hands, I would write about my experiences on a daily basis.
4. A Cotton Blanket which can also be used as a towel and certainly can be air dried after you wash it in the Ocean so that I could also be warm.
5. A Hygiene Kit, packed with Toothbrush, ToothPaste, Brush, Mouthwash, Shampoo and Conditioner as we need to stay fresh on that Island.
Shampoo, because I want my hair washed every day. I guess I'd use the shampoo to wash in, as well ....although that decision was made after giving up a bottle of rubbing alcohol in favor of....
Matches. It just seems like a good idea to have matches. Besides I'm planning to have tea.
Travel toothbrush with toothpaste in it - obvious reasons.
A cup - to put a teabag in.
A box of teabags. (If a box of teabags count for more than one item, then I guess a jar of Instant Coffee.)
(I really don't want to go to any unihabited island - how unpleasant! )
1. A ladder for climbing coconut trees essential for survival
2. Makeup so I can put on my face everyday
3. A man....(well Eve was never alone)
4. Goggles so I can see underwater and catch a good supply of prawns
5. Cindy cos she has heaps of knowledge on everything
BP, you're obviously planning to be busier than I plan to be. I'm just planning to wait out the time until the rescue plane comes. (I wasn't thinking it's a dangerous island and I'd have to worry about survival. I guess I thought it was a "nice" island. )
pot seeds or salvia
a pregnant pig[for future sausages]
> Tarzan thong and roman sandles...grrrr!
> Bug-Off, to divert the insects.
> Monkey Grip, to stick to the highest tree away from lions,
tigers, and snakes...... oh my
> Desalinization tablets, not into collecting water from leaves.
> toilet paper, leaves are definitely out.
> American Express, if the party poops, I'm Gone...
I'd still like to know if it's a nice island or a dangerous island, and if it has one of those secret doors that the Lost island had, and whether or not "uninhabited" just means "no other people" or "no other people or animals". Also, how are we getting there? Boat or plane? And who's going? Do the tv camera-people count in the 19? Also, if I bring tea bags, will they count as 50 individual items or will the box count as 1? Also, can I select my own 19 people? Oh - and is there a way I can arrange to have someone feed my cat while I'm gone?
It's like one of thos islands on Survivor and you are helicopetered in. Uninhabited means you arebthe only people
Good topic. So much depends on who the 19 other people are and if the intent is to cooperate or vote each other off the island? If the former, I would coordinate with the 19 other people so that we are not all bringing the same things and we can share. For example, if Princessa's bringing sunscreen and LisaHW's bringing toothpaste -- I could skip those items in favor of things that I can share with others.
For sure tho:
1. Laptop -- No question this situation will be ripe for a variety of hub topics!
2. Disposable razors -- no reason to go native re: pits and legs
3. A solar shower -- if necessary I can charge people to use it
4. Chocolate -- I'll be the most popular girl on the island!
5. Ibuprofen -- all-purpose pain reliever
5 items would be a toothbrush, book, marbles, sunflower seeds and eyeglasses.
Tooth brush is for sparking teeth
Book is for stimulating reading
Marbles is for entertainment
Sunflower seeds are for eating and planting
eyeglasses are for me to be able to see the other 19 people
Crap, I forgot the lenses...... Blind as a bat over five inches from my face.......
I, personally, think the hygiene kit with the toothbrush, toothpaste, etc. in it is cheating. That's several objects packaged in a case and deceptively packaged as one object. If I'd know we could do that I would have said:
A suitcase with everything I need as far as clothes, toiletries, and other personal items go.
A grocery bag full of food, beverages, and disposable dishes/cups.
A suitcase with a towel, bedding, Mp3 player, mini-notebook, and portable tv.
A suitcase full of books
My handbag, full of all the stuff it already has in it (flashlight, radio, cell phones, etc. etc.)
So, Game-Show Judges, can the hygiene kit stay; and if it can, then I'm switching my list (and changing my mind about the helicopter thing). (but only if I can bring my "5 items" in the helicopter)
A Magnifying Glass
A Large Metal Pot
A Clear Tarp
The Multi-tool for the knife, pliars, mini saw, etc
the magnifying glass to start fires
The Metal pot to cook food and as a rain catch
A clear tarp to use as a solar still, to rainproof a shelter, additional rain catch, etc.
Axe for chopping trees, hammering and opening coconuts.
My top hub is a survival checklist :-D
How long are we gone for again?
I would take debris (and he would take his 5 items)
first aid kit if allowed (complete with pain pills)
blanket cause I gets cold ...and I don't like cold....
k rations (again if allowed) if not, then a mega can of hot chocolate
I would tell them (the producers) to get me the hell out. I hate reality shows! They're anything but realistic.

If you are lost in an uninhabited island, alone and helpless, what would you do to kill stress?Imagine you are shipwrecked and lost in an uninhabited island. You are alone with no belongings. No mobile phone or sleeping pills. The worst thing that can prevent any hope of survival is getting insane....

Do you brush your teeth in the shower and keep your toothbrush in there?My roommate does it. And it baffles me! All that soap scum and runoff onto your toothbrush. It gives me the heebie jeebies!

I am taking a very informal survey here. It is not for an article, it is not truly important in the scheme of things. It is simply for grins and giggles. Here's the question:Do you wet your toothbrush before applying the toothpaste, and why or why not?
