Re: 5 things you would take with you:D

Well, Obviously I'd take me.

More to the point:

1) IPOD.
2) BEER.
3) DRUGS.
4) COFFEE.
5) CIGGARETTES.


I'd also like to take some good books, but im not sure if im allowed to pick 'Books' in general and take as many as I want, or whether I would have to use one choice up for one book?

They're all screaming about the rock n roll, but I would say that it's getting old. - REFUSED.

Re: 5 things you would take with you:D

Well, since most people don't know in advance that they are going to be marooned, how would you know what to take?

In that case I volunteer for the position.

Re: 5 things you would take with you:D

I'm so stupid, of course I need my Sensei. Ok I'll change my knife or my books for him. But he better not interfere between the cute uke and me
