    So let's check a bit of your personality and imagination!

    If you went to a desert island and you could take one (and only ONE!) item with you, what would you take?

    Myself would bring a cellphone with gps and hope for it to have signal LoL!

    So I could be savvveeddd ASAP!

    smile

    And you?

      I would take a plane or a car so I could get out of the desert. I don't think a cell would get a signal in the desert.

        Because Kevin likes everyone. He assumes all that know him/hear of him/etc already adore him.

        Pure math.

        And good call ralwus. Me and Kevin count as one 'thing'

        Unfortunately ...

      1. frogdropping profile image83
        frogdroppingposted 10 years agoin reply to this

        Kevin is currently silver. And he's an Irregularity Dragon. Which just means he was an *whispers* accident.

        And he spews fire. Occasionally he spews Dinner back up.

        But mostly he spews BS.

            What he spews is part of why I've decided he's male. He won't tell me. As in anyting I want to hear.

            And that is another reason ...

    Seriously, if something happened and I found myself on a deserted island, I would hope I had a blank journal with a never-ending pen inside. I would keep a journal, express my adventures, thoughts, and feelings until either death or being rescued. If I survived, then I would have a book and movie deal all in one.........Wishful thinking.... smile

    My World Edition Blackberry! I could take pictures, video, read/send e-mail, know where I was with the GPS and e-mail people my whereabouts to come get me. It also has AIM, Twitter and the internet so I could approve my hubpage comments and check my google adsense earnings.

    wink

    I could look up all sorts of information about how to start a fire without a lighter and how to ensure water is safe to drink.

    After the battery ran out, I'd be screwed. But hopefully by that time, the rescue crews would be on the way!

          The Lions are  the British and Irish Lions, a composite rugny side made up from the Original four nations of britain namely English,  Scottish, Welsh and the Northern Irish who are not part of Britain, hence the name. In other words the best rugby players from each of the four national sides. They only tour about every four or five years abd generally make up a pretty powerful side. The toured New Zealand and Australia about four years ago.
