    Thought I would propose a game of sorts, at least something to think over. This may have been done but I haven't found it.

    You are shipwrecked on an island and you have some items with you. From the following items, you can take 3 of each with you on the island. What books, games etc would you take. Its kinda of like "What are your favorite things".

    1) 3 Books

    2) 3 Food items

    3) 3 Movies

    4) 3 Famous People - from any time in history

    5) 3 CD / Music albums

    6) 3 Toy / Sport or Hobby item

    7) 3 drink /liquids

    This may be alittle stupid but I was wondering where people's tastes went. Might be fun.

    5) 3 CD / Music albums All albums music from 3 different Bands or Musicians on MP3 or whatever {eg. Pick "Ozzy Ozborne" and get his solo work + music with Black Sabbath etc}

    6) 3 Toy / Sport How about 3 "sports setup" eg: tennis court, bicycle, hockey rink, bowling alley, hang glider, fishing gear etc.

    7) 3 drink /liquids

    8.) 1 aircraft

    Well Freebird Effed up the game.

    Ofcourse you take three famous people for entertainment/technical/philosophical/religious knowledge.

    You take some games to pass the time.

    You take three liquids. One of which is vodka, Coleman's fuel, and Jergens lotion. :toothy5:

    :oops: :oops: You're just 'noyed because I exposed the Evergreen state's dirty little secret! :D

    Njaco do we each have our own Island? Or do we have to share this Island with all the other Wackos?

    I notice there isn't "your 3 favorite babes" {from Breaking News!}
    so I might be getting worried!

    You are on the island alone except for 3 babes or 3 famous people. I have so effed this thread. Thats just the shakes from being excited the forum is back online. Sheesh!

    I wanted to see what 3 movies people would pic, 3 books, etc. I haven't really completed my list but I think one of the people would be Ben Franklin. Soundes like an interesting sort - busy conversation for hours and days.

    That list is fine - however we want to go. Just wanted to see what members would list.

    I have to ask a question. How can you be all alone on an island with three
    females of your choosing, and three famous people ?? What is it I don't
    understand about the "alone" part ?

    I think you ought to start this all over, with being on an island with only
    three books. Not the collections of three authors, 3 books. What books
    would you choose ?

    I put down "3 authors" and the collected music works from "3 groups". I don't think I could pick 3 books only, or 3 albums only it's hard enough picking 3 authors and 3 groups! But if you can do it Charles go ahead! And I would probably get so bored reading the same 3 books listening to the same 3 albums that I would go crazy after a month anyways!! :)

    Hmm, I suppose if there are 3 persons there to converse with then there will need to be ANOTHER 3 hot babes to keep the 3 gentlemen satisfied.

    {Unless you picked the Pope, the Dalai Lama St. Thomas Aquinas}

    Now if you picked Mohammed, Solomon Henry VIII as your companions you will need 3 boatloads of virgins every month.... :D :D :D

    If I were alone on an island with only three books, I'd pick (in this order)
    1. The Boy Scout Handbook
    2. The Longest Day
    3. Bodyguard of Lies

    You're right, I purposly omitted the Bible.
