Deserted Island

    What is the one thing (anything) you'd bring on a cliched deserted island near the equator with low elevation etc...?

    I find people tend to think of amenities or pleasurable things/items.

    I tend to think of ways to get off the island.

    Ehh?

    Well, if matthyaouw is bringing the sat phone, I think I'll bring an extra battery for it. :biggrin:

    Oh, wait, if he's already there, then it's not a deserted island anymore, is it?

    1. All the books that I wish to have read but haven't had the time.
    2. How about magazine subscriptions? Strictly for the articles, of course, although pictures can't hurt. :smile:
    3. Mailing supplies so I can write long letters to Moonbear. Mostly, invitations to a quiet small-island vacation near the equator. :wink:
    4. A contract for an option to be lifted off the island on a specified day.

    Oh, wait, I changed my mind. I'm bringing a sharp axe. Good for cracking open coconuts and heads (so I can steal everyone else's goodies). :biggrin:

    You wouldn't need an axe to steal anything from me, Moonbear; I'd share willingly. :smile:

    Although, the image is titillating. Will you have a dungeon?

    Don't think you're going to trick me into sharing my axe with you though. I have no interest in those magazines you're getting though; perhaps we can add another title to the list for my benefit. :devil:

    Sure, if they interest you. Though, if they do, you might already have some magazines I'd like to view. I better double check that list of what you've subscribed to.

    Yeah, I always wanted to look at Popular Mechanics... with you.
    Sports Illustrated. Mostly for their articles about tennis.

    Three comes before four, darling. :wink:

    I would take a friend with me. Or if he was busy, one of EnumaElish's dirty magazines.

    Well, I wouldn't hold it against him. There isn't much to do on a deserted island. And by 'friend' I meant 'book', and by 'busy' I meant 'heavy'. :biggrin:
