Last thing in the world

If there was a nuclear winter and you had to go into a underground shelter, where you could only take one thing. If food and shelter were the only things guaranteed, what would the one thing be that you would take across?

I sms-ed this question yesterday, after the Girl managed to sneak in a toothpaste across airport security, to various people.

Responses:
M1: Books and porn

M2
: A photo album to remember the world as we know it

G
: A girl?

P
: Condoms??

V
: Husband

IM
: People allowed? If people not allowed, then gym equipment to stay fit, to remain the only fit man in mankind, once allowed out of the shelter!!

D
: Laptop with internet connection, if internet is there, TV, if waves are still there, otherwise, laptop with games, comics, ipod in that order, with various caveats

G
: Boyfriend

10
: What nonsense is this?

S: If all the people I care for are there, I won't bother with things. Otherwise, will not go.

Me: If people are allowed, girlfriend (she's reading this). Otherwise, laptop to access wikipedia. If Wikipedia is not available, then Encyclopedia Britannica.

You?

So much for the techies!

There's a nuclear winter on, friends! Where are you gonna plug your cutie little laptops? Up your anal orifices?

Drop the laptops.

Drop the iPods. (Clunk Clunk. They need battery power too. Clunk Clunk. Battery power runs out)

Drop the condoms. You will need to multiply to repopulate.

Here's what you will need in the new world.

1. Robinson Crusoe...the oldest survival kit.
2. Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad...literature to keep you from going mad
3. The Complete Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister...you will need to laugh.
Alt. 3. Bongs can carry Abol Tabol by Sukumar Ray.

A loaded AK-47 or an AK-56. Preferably the 47. Food might start running out, you know.
