I'm sure this has been done before,but this version has new rules.
Ok,so you have finally annoyed the PPRuNe mod's enough to be sent to live the rest of your life on a desert island.
What 5 things do you take,you will be given a solar powered cd player and you must choose at least one album and one book,the rest is up to you and you can take more than one album/book if you choose.
My 5 are.
1 Enya:Shepherd Moons
2 "A Fortunate Life" by A.B.Facey as the book.
3 A fishing rod
4 A photo of my family
5 Lots of paper and pens to write my life story.

2. Fishing tackle.
5. I'll get back to you...
Failing that, a couple powerful lights... (well, it worked for the wreckers on the Carolina coast...), no sense in living small...
Enya on a desert island, you'd go fecking mental listening to that over and over again. And I like her.
Let me sail, let me sail,
let the orinoco flow,
Let me reach, let me beach
On the shores of Tripoli.
Let me sail, let me sail,
Let me crash upon your shore,
(Orinoco Flow) Spur you on to build a boat to get away from this stupid desert island and this constant repeating CD.
1. John Peel, A tribute. CD
2. Book, Bill Bryson, Notes from a Small Island. Then realise my mistake.
3. My Zippo and a lot of cigars.
4. The Idiot. Tom Hanks talked to a basket ball, I can talk to the Idiot.
5. My watercolours so I can be arty farty.

I must down to the seas again, to the
lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to
steer her by,
And the wheels kick and the wind's song
and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face and
grey dawn breaking....
And the sooner the bloody better !

24th Sep 2007, 22:48
Well, I wear black under my flight suit but I don't think I'm gay? :confused: I just may have to find out the old fashioned way! :E
Oh no, I'm just imaging the frustration :( of being stuck on the island now with a gay man - but it would the be the tidiest island ever and I'd eat very well.
24th Sep 2007, 22:54
PS: and my hair would be gorgeous.

1. Any CD will do, they can be used as a signalling mirror to passing ships. Forget the music, after a few plays you'll want to throw it in the sea whatever it is.
2. Any book will do.
3. My tool kit. I might be able to turn something in that desert into something useful.
4. A chair. I'd want somwhere to sit whilst using the CD to signal passing ships.
5. A white tee shirt.
P.S. The book is only there to stop the chair wobbling, the ground is bound to be uneven on a desert island.
Kiwi Chick -- Alan of the Wolfpack seems to have dropped the two lambs (or rolls of lino) he was carrying.
25th Sep 2007, 06:09
I think that went straight over my head? :confused:
Or do you mean cos of his bulging biceps...?! :p
I've got my Aussie/Kiwi translator set on 10 and I'm still missing some of this.
Is Wolfpact real? Only Wolfpack I know is a crappy pub in a crappy soap.
26th Sep 2007, 05:35
He's real alright! A navy pilot...
(although I truly have no idea who he is - I googled him)
Maybe it's Tinpis?! Or Mr Draper?! :suspect:
26th Sep 2007, 06:11
1. Any Doves album
2. Anything by Terry Pratchett
3. Greg Normans yacht
4. Sand wedge
5. A Union Jack
(They've claimed almost every other friggin' island in the Pacific, may as well keep with tradition!)
Kiwi Chick....No, the spaces between his arms and body where said lambs or rolls of lino would have been.
The implication was that he has a liking for sheep, or he "plays for the other side" (as in "Ooooooooh! Get him! Someone's nicked his rolls of pink lino").
You must be from the mainland? Jafas would know this!
27th Sep 2007, 00:01
Born in the Mainland (good Southern girl, hand me a Speights!) but residing in our fair Capital.
Where, I would imagine, there are lots of rolls of pink lino... :rolleyes:
(But as yet, no Union Jacks, Buster!)
27th Sep 2007, 00:03
I thought I was on the mainland???:confused:
27th Sep 2007, 02:00
sorry Buster, you are. :oh:
I was born in the South-East island... :ok:
27th Sep 2007, 02:09
1. Something by Savage Garden
2. Wiki, printed out if needs be.
3. A goto telescope
4. An unfeasibly large artillery piece.
5. Er, another one, I guess.
What can I say? I like loud noises.
27th Sep 2007, 05:10
I'm too scared to answer. I've just been banned from my first thread :ooh:
I can't think why? :E :E
"Born in the Mainland (good Southern girl, hand me a Speights!) but residing in our fair Capital.

Isn't there a Union Jack on every Kiwi flag?
27th Sep 2007, 06:18
Sorry, too true. :(
I mean the kind used to adorn Ginger Spice's well endowed pre-anorexia body.
27th Sep 2007, 06:34
Thank Gawd you aren't Tasmanian!!!:eek::ouch::=
On my little island here, no desert, mostly grass, granite and bog, I could fly the Ulster flag, the Union Jack, the Irish flag or the EU flag.
Depends on who I want to get beat up by that day.
It's only a matter of time before I call it a dessert island.
27th Sep 2007, 10:49

Three women on a desert island,you're supposed to take things that will keep you SANE,not make you want to swim back and take your chances with the sharks.:p

28th Sep 2007, 05:25
Once again I feel the need to retire to the "Photos of everybody" thread and await some new happy snaps...
28th Sep 2007, 05:26
:but it would the be the tidiest island ever and I'd eat very well."
Why does one have to be gay to be tidy and know how to cook!:*
I'll have you know KC that I happen to be very domesticated and a qualified chef with a background in 5* hotels and I am definetely NOT gay
(Not there's anything wrong with that,as they say in Seinfeld) just ask my ex g/f.:E
