Stranded On A Desert Island - What Would You Need?

 
 
Reply Sun 15 Aug, 2010 04:06 pm
Hi!

This is hypothetical!

If you were to find yourself alone, on a deserted island, with no chance of rescue, and no way of contacting anyone anywhere, what 5 (Five) things would you preferably have in or about your presence (with you, or nearby)? In order to help you survive, NOT ESCAPE!

Thank you!

I would need a gun, bullets, high rubber fishing pants, a butcher knife, and a house.

@edgarblythe,
1. A sexy woman who meets my every need
2. Gourmet food based on Jacques Pepin's recommendations
3. Good wine, spirits, and beer - and water
4. Good shelter with all the modern conveniences
5. Good clothes

Hi CI!

Stop mucking about. That's more than five things. I will allow you these (due to your post)

One Woman
One item of food (gourmet if you wish)
One bottle of alcohol
You would have to make your own shelter (I award you one tent)
One item of clothing (I award you one baseball cap)

Now play properly or I will take your cap off you!

Have a lovely day!

@edgarblythe,
Hi Edgar!

I never awarded the island 'fertile, palm covered, pig roaming, south sea status.

But for you...I shall.

Where will you shelter, and what will you drink?

There is no fresh water on your island, and a storm is due soon!

@edgarblythe,
Wait a minute!!!!!!!

You can't have bananas!!! This isn't possible. They need to be cloned by humans and this island has never been inhabited or visit by humans before.

There is a deep cave in the rocks. I shall harbor there and my soccer ball and I shall commiserate, until the rescue ship arrives.

@mark noble,
A Star Trek food replicator: source of food;
Self replicating nanobots: by transmodifying molecules from one element to another to create the building blocks for shelter;
A platoon of hyper-intelligent androids: Each one specializing in their own respective academic field: medicine, literature, art, engineering, etc....
A battalion of worker robots: Each battery of robots assigned to their specific department: maintenance, security, diplomacy, manufacturing, construction;
Satellite system: not for communication but for gathering in the cultural products of the world: all the television programming in the world, all the movies produced and distributed, all of the radio stations, 1 exabyte per minute internet connection, etc....

I'm good.

I'd take "Friday" with me,
a rooster and a hen, a cow and a bull.

I’m going to try and respond as realistically as I can to this hypothetical question.
Not knowing the conditions (natural food source/clean water source/terrain) or atmosphere (to include weather patterns, average temperatures, etc. etc.) of thus said Island. I find myself answering with the most broad of use supplies that I can think of, that I could possible find use to me in most adverse conditions unknown to me. Without overtaxing my brain too much with thought my “things” would include the following: 1 Clean water supply such as a river, 1 hunting knife w/leather holder, 1 nearby uninhabited cave of moderate dept (say 200ft.), 1 overly large herd of deer with very few predators, and finally an iron kettle(3 gallon).

@edgarblythe,
Hi Edgar!

Cave... OK.
Rescue... No! No chance of.
Your football is a wasted resource choice. You can talk to a coconut.

Kind regards!
