Maybe we need a bit of a fun diversion from all the political and financial stuff.
A few years ago we had a thread on the above topic which was interesting and entertaining, so perhaps we could try it again now that we have so many new members.
Scenario: you will be isolated on an island, in a warm climate, with no means of transport to facilities.
You may take three items with you. These may be human, animal, or inanimate.
The island has a good source of fresh water, but no food other than a few berries and some coconuts. There are shade trees and low growing vegetation.
The sea contains the occasional shark, and there are poisonous spiders and snakes.
If taking literature or music, it would be good if you could specify exactly what, and why.
