    If the world was going to end in the mayan apocalypse, and you had one chance on a desert island

    I'd take my BFF. I wouldn't need anything else when I have the world in the palm of my hand. Of course I would hope we still have wifi, cause if we don't that would be an issue. I'd still have my KU music smile

    Hello Nell,
    Interesting question. I would choose to go home to to Heaven. There we will be in a much, much better place. The end does not worry me in the least. Hopefully, I am still alive to see it when it happens. What a glorious sight this will be when Jesus parts the clouds to take his children home. Merry Christmas Nell!

    Hi Nell,
    Since I'm a crazy American, I'd bring a gun to shoot the zombies. Just kidding!

    Since it's a desert island, fresh water would probably be the biggest short-term survival issue. I'd bring a solar still. That's a large square sheet of plastic and a drinking cup.
    Dig a shallow circular hole in the sand. Put your cup in the center. Loosely cover the whole thing with the plastic, and weigh down the corners with rocks. Put a small stone over the center of the plastic. At night, the gas-phase H2O (humidity) from the ground water would condense on the plastic, and drip down into the cup.

    I have no desire to be anywhere near a deserted island. I also don't know if I would be to worried about the world ending just because the Mayan calender ended. This hub had a very good perspective on why the Mayan calendar came to an abrupt end - http://theholestory.hubpages.com/hub/Th … n-calendar You just have to laugh  smile

      No problem!  I've been sleeping with one for 13 years now!!  ROFLMAO.   He's retired but he's still got it...all over Johnny Cochran!!
      BTW...After 60...it's not called "cheating"....it's called THE PRIVILEGE OF AGE.

    The chance of going to the desert island is pointless, for me. I have to die with the rest because it's nothing at all. No man is an island.

    But this is a good question. Expanding your example, if it is a very big island then I can plant vegetables and live normally, I would stay for few days but sadness kills.

    LOL! I love your question, by the way.
