If you were to be thrown back into ancietn egypt and live there(without disturbing the future, no matter what!!). Which 5 people you know (parents you may count as 1) would you bring? Which 5 people you DONT know would you bring (i.e. a doctor..etc..)? What would you bring with them (example: if you choose a doctor for someone you dont know youd pick something like a medical kit for him)? And of course include one thing youd bring yourself. Explain how itd be if you wish.

Serena

p.s. when im sad i think about being able to do this stuff.. i thoughtd id share my pounderings.. ill post mine after others start posting.

That's a tough one -

5 people I know:
1. parents. I guess they have to be a must (or else you wouldn't be there)
2. My wife, cos I love her (everyone say ahh). Wink
3.4.5. My step-children (see no. 2)

5 people I don't know
1. My grandchild - he's only just been born so I don't really know him yet (give me some leeway) Smile
2. Angelina Jolie (what would I get her to bring - not saying)
3. Liv Tyler (what would I get her to bring - not saying)
4. Shakira - (what would I get her to bring - her coin belt)
5. Heidi Klum - (what would I get her to bring - not saying)

1 thing I'd bring myself...the world's greatest book of excuses. Very Happy

I'm sorry Hatshepsu - I couldn't think of anything sensible. Sorry. Embarassed

People I know

Stewart- because hes nutty and would keep me company I would make him bring jet fuel

Niki- Shes pretty weird and freaky but she would creep out the natives I would make her bring A harrier (a jet and we would say im your new god and this is my magical monster named Harry)

Ada- Shes my drinking buddy and a fellow German living in Munich id make her bring lots of good German Beer so the natives no what good brew tatses like

my dog john - yeah yeah hes not a person but he thinks he is and I would mke him bring hes portable water bowl that hangs off his neck

Serena- I just think she would wanna go to Egypt and she could bring what ever she wanted but I sujest a book on deciphering hiyrogliphs!


people I dont know

A harrier pilot- a jet dosent do much good if you cant get it off the ground! he would bring lots and lots of ammo so we can take out Egypts ennemies fast and easy and I will become Ramases the greater

A green beret or Ranger- so if we get lost we can survive and I would get him to bring a Survival kit

A photographer- and of course id make him bring a polaroid with full film and we would play practicle jokes on the natives saying we got your soul!

Heidi Klume- I dont think I need to explain id get her to bring suntan lotion

and I dont know who ese probably a doctor or somthing and yeah most of these ideas are stupid but hey why not!

Hmm... tough one...

People I know... well, I wouldn't bring my parents. They'd miss their reality shows and soaps too much. I guess I'd take my budgie, first and foremost, for entertainment value (he laughs at jokes before anyone else even gets them - I swear he could speak fluent English if he wanted to). I guess other than that, I'd fill up the spaces with friends.

People I don't know... well, like you said at the start, a doctor with his medical supplies would be handy. Dark age medicine is mocked frequently, we're talking pre-Dark Ages here, lol. The local Pizza Hut chef next with some pizza-related supplies - NO PIZZA IN THEM DAYS! Hmm, I'd grab an expert on Egyptian culture and an expert on Egyptian language while I was on the way, with all their books and papers. Couldn't hurt to avoid getting myself lynched for something I overlooked, and someone who spoke the lingo would be handy - England didn't even exist, let alone have a language they might speak over there. One more... I guess, an engineer or a scientist, someone who could get an infrastructure working to modernise the place a little, and whatever they needed to do so.

If it's a short trip, and I can choose where I'm going..

I would like to travel to one of the time periods I find fascinating, and be a guest at one of the palaces.

Hatshepsut, Amenhotep III, Akhenaten and Nefertiti, Ramses the Great, Early 12th dynasty, 25 th dynasty would be fun.

I would take one of my sisters and one of my brothers and their spouses. I have many siblings, but I'm not sure the other 4 would enjoy it...
One of my adventurous friends.

For as far as strangers:
A doctor, a cook (you never know if the food is as god as it looks), a nurse, an egyptologist, a cute guy (Hugh Jackman maybe?)


What to bring: light clothes, a cam-corder, a car with 4-wheel drive to get around (or would that get me executed as an evil magician?).
A bed may not be a bad idea, and definitely a pillow. I don't think I could sleep on one of those head-rest thingies they had.

Being able to see the palaces, temples, and regular towns would be amazing. All the temples were decorated in color. To see that in its full splendor, as it was meant would be something.

So, could people please hurry up and invent a time machine?
