    I posted a question and decided to turn this into a game.

    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 off the island. (like phone, or internet)
    *If you bring anyone with you, then they will be subject to the same conditions as you.
    *You will live for over 200 years


    After a pre-determined amount of answers the rules will change and you will have to respond to the changes in order to stay alive. I've devised a point system that will come into play later.

    Good Luck.

    Holy cow, RS!  No internet?  Who would want to live for 200 years anyway?  Just askin'  I'm game..

    1.  a Bible - it's the most interesting book ever written.  But sadly, since school days in a Catholic school, I barely touched a bible.

    2.  a comfy bed - might as well be comfortable sleeping.  I hate sleeping on bare floor.. but that could change.

    3.  a really good knife - maybe a multi-purpose knife, like a Swiss army knife.

    4.  a thick notebook - I might as well write my diary.. I never had one.  But I write blogs, so it's like writing blogs.  No need to bring a pen or pencil.. I can use charcoal for writing.. why waste my 5th thingie on that.

    and,

    5.  vegetable seeds - I want to grow my own veggies.  Again, I never had a veggy garden.. a good time to start one.

              I hate to rain on your parade but having 1000 women is 995 things MORE than you are allowed. Each person you bring is worth 1 spot. Try again.

    It's not going to work, Greek One. 200 women for a man, even viagra won't be enough! Men will not survive! Women will end up being alone, without Internet and shopping they will get mad and will be killing each other. Until 3 or 4 will be left completely wild. A passing by ship will collect them for a zoo like rear specimens of Yeties. I think you should re-read Robinson Crusoe. Nothing has changed, we are still the same people just with more expensive habits. big_smile
    Well, no game for me. anyway. I've been living on an island for almost 40 years anyway. It was called USSR. I left it in 1992, by a miracle I think.
