What Articles Do I Take? / Что взять в ссылку?
Read Что взять в ссылку? You are a political prisoner who has been sentenced to spend the remainder of your life on an uninhabited island in the Pacific Ocean (you are 28 years old). The island is 4000 miles from any land, and the chances of escaping are extremely small because of strong ocean currents. Fortunately, the island (2000 sq. mi.) has a very moderate climate; temperatures never go below 65 degrees F. in the winter or above 85 degrees F. in the summer. The rainfall on the island is moderate also, about 75 inches spread evenly throughout the year. As a result, there is lush vegetation and diverse animal life; therefore, food is no problem.

Aside from this, your government has allowed you to take 12 items to the island, and has said that it will provide you with a portable solar generator if you want to take electrical devices. The only restrictions are that you may not select a person of the opposite sex to accompany you, and you may not take a means of transportation to the island (boat, airplane, etc.).

Consider
1. Here are some possible articles to take with you:

a compass
an article of clothing
a telescope
a comb/brush
a frying pan
a typewriter
a deck of cards
a hammer/nails
a thermometer
a lamp (or other source of light)
sunglasses
scissors
a gun/ammunition
a mirror
an axe
a tape recorder
an army knife
a stove
a refrigerator
a microscope
a large cooking pot
a radio
a TV
a rope
a book
a fishing pole
a horse
a net
a barometer

2. Remember that you might be able to make many items from the natural resources on the island. For example, you might be able to make an axe from a sharp rock and a stick. Nonetheless, a steel axe might be more reliable and useful.

3. Remember that you are not limited to the list.

4. At least one article you choose must not be on the list!
