So here are the rules.
The Island is abundant with life, but is completely uninhabitated by humans. You have to go there to escape death from a gang of drug barons (or insert your own reason there) and will be there for 1 year at least.
The captain who has offered to drop you off at the uncharted Island has told you that you have to travel light. You can only bring five items with you. Anything that would cost more then $500.00 by itself is not allowed.
You are currently wearing a pair of cargo pants, and a plain black cotton t-shirt with sturdy leather work boots.
I would bring the following items:
1. Swiss Army Knife
3. Woolen Blanket
4. Coil of Rope
5. A couple of square metres of Sailing Canvas
What items would you bring?
1) 5 x $100 an hour hookers
2) $500 worth of bottled water
3) A $500 tombstone
4) A shovel
5) A wooden coffin
I would sleep with the hookers (paying them in water when the first hour ran out) until I died from exhaustion.
I would asked them to bury me in the sand after
1. Box of 1,000 matches
4. Canvas tent
5. Rod/reel rig
1. a Swiss army knife sounds like a good idea
2. a fire-starter of some kind (flint? lol no clue, I wasn't a scout)
3. a sleeping bag w/attached pillow
4. paper & pen/pencils to record my experiences
5. camera and film to visually record my experiences & existence.
1. boxes of matches;
2. sleeping bag;
4. paper and pen/pencils;
5. a very beautiful, thick book from my favorite author.
1. A beach towel with Union Jack on it so no Germans steal my spot.
2. A cool box filled with beer and cucumber sandwiches
3. A little rainbow-coloured wind breaker that I wouldn't bother putting up.
4. A copy of the most recent Viz magazine
5. A large boat, so I could head home at the end of the day, drunk and sunburnt.
A trusty knife
fish hooks and line (I combine two as one would be almost useless without the other.
Can't think why I would really want to go tho!!!
why five? I only need one; my lover (if she can be considered as a thing) it'll be my little paradise I believe
my 5 items would be
A wood cutting saw
3. sail cloth
4. bow and arrows
Magnifying glass (for starting fires)
Swiss Army knife
Fermentation lock (for brewing alcohol)
Solar-powered laptop computer with ebooks on survival
Loom for weaving
Wow! Really makes one think...only 5 things. OK here we go:
3. change of underwear
4. a book of short stories..or perhap a Bible...good way to read it in a year
1. a man - smart (not a nerd tho); lots of vitality;, etc....etc....etc. and with sturdy leather work boots already on (and no whining allowed)
2. 2 horses - beautiful ones too! (mare and stallion - 3-4 years old)
3. knife (a really, really good one)
4. material (lots of beautiful colors and various types)(we'll just need sarongs most of the time and something to keep the sun off)
5. seeds (in case the island doesn't naturally grow my favourite veggies/fruit (oats for the horses too)
...oh yea, none of the above will cost more than $500....most of it is donated except the knife; and/or just wanting to come along for the ride (e.g. the guy and the horses)....and i might just stay longer than a year......that works for me....
A solar powered 4G Kindle...
A .22 cal. scoped rifle with a case of rounds...
A Gerber survival knife with flint attachment...
A fully stocked First-Aid kit with medicinal Brandy...
A snorkel and spear-gun kit...
I'm assuming that since there are animals on the island there must be fresh water sources, and edible fruits and tubers...
The Kindle for entertainment, the rifle for meat, the Gerber for skinning and fire starting, the First-Aid kit for contingencies, and the snorkel kit for fresh fish...
I would build my own shelter, probably above ground...
A flint fire starter-Grog need fire $8
A spear gun- Grog need food. $150
A woman who love Grog. Grog need love. Free if she really love Grog
A massive heavy duty tarp- Grog need shelter $70
A suitable boy-Vikram Seth- Damn long novel- Grog need big book of words to get out of stone age. $15
1) lots of canned food
2) a tin opener
3) a water purifier (saltwater to freshwater)
4) various seeds of plants which grow edible fruits (for when the canned food runs out)
5) a fishing rod
Food and water, thats all that we need, I would have a go at making fire from twigs to cook the fish.
Couple of shipwrecks near by with a lot of provision would do just fine. (Remember Robinson Crusoe?)
an automatic inflating boat (as sturdy as 500 dollars can buy)
does the oar count as an item?
a solar powered radio (for when I use the boat to get off the island after the year is done...since no one mentioned that we would have a ride back after that year!)
some kind of special material jacket with a hood and visor that is waterproof and warm or cool as needed
the best multi-use knife 500 dollars can buy
and if the oar didn't count as an item--the last thing would be...a weather proof journal to write in (with pens)...so I don't go crazy
long length nylon rope
huge box matches
large bolt of sturdy material
I would take my family so I could have company
$500 of juice mix for water bottles
Years supply of water in a bottle Poland springs
Computer with wi-fi
%00 pounds of trail mix
Wonder if I would lose or gain weight.
A broken port-a-can plastic side
plenty of VCR tape to make a raft

Would you rather retire on a Tropical Island Paradise or a Quaint German Town?
by R.S. Hutchinson 22 months ago
If you could only take 5 things with you to a deserted island, what would you choose?Rules: Cannot ever leave island (so taking a boat in hopes of leaveing would not work because of a magical forcefield)Anything you take will never stop working (like an ipod)You cannot have access to anyone else...
