Things you would need on a desert island...

  1. I was watching the "Good eats" guy on the food channel, when his special was being previewed. He's going to show how to survive and dine well...LMAO on a desert island. I got to thinkin about what I absolutely couldn't live w/o. I was curious as to what you guys couldn't live without. I of course need some candles....:chuckle Maybe a wilson volleyball?? :chuckle Laura LPN

    guiseppe.....you must be referring to maslow's hierarchy of needs: i call it the little pyramid of life. :chuckle

    so, in order for me to survive on a deserted island i would definitely need air, food, water, safety (to include protection and freedom from fear and anxiety), love (to give and receive it), my self-esteem intact, and of course, the need for self-actualization.

    if i can't have any of those things, then give me sex or give me death!
    :roll

    Heather's Hierarchy of needs:

    Air, chocolate, sex, allnurses.com, good books.

    Anyone else think Maslow had it all wrong?

    LMAO Renee
    Sex? what is that?

    Okay, stranded on desert island........
    The desert island like in Cast away and 6 days and seven nights, I will definitely live happy and will grow healthier. There are coconuts to drink, fish, shells, stick to make me knife, will make fire out of stick like I usually do when am in my teens, make myself a hut out of coconut fronds. Once trying to get out of island when I feel bored, I will equiped myself with coconut and coconuts and coconuts and a sharp stick and make me a very good raft.

    Once on the desert , with no water, then I will rather died.

    I definitely think they need to teach Heather's Hierarchy of needs and just skip Maslows!
