you can only keep 5 of everything.


Recommended Posts

A few years ago, I got burgled and it crushed me, lost my whole CD collection, DVDs, Xbox Games, and lots of other stuff.


The odd thing was, the burglar(s) left me one of everything. They left one CD, one DVD, one VHS tape, one speaker (wtf!), one TV!, one (Simpsons) slipper...


If you was going to lose all of your material possessions, but were allowed to keep 5 DVDs, 5 CDs and 5 books, and you could NEVER replace the others, that was the extent of your collection for the rest of your life, what would they be?

Can I be cheeky and count boxsets as one DVD? And can they be Blu-Ray's? (he says immediately after commenting on the poverty thread).


boxset if it's packaged in a box, yes, and blurays or dvds, or mixed yes.

Feckin moving the goalposts, my updated DVD list will be up shortly

so people are opting to keep CDs that they don't actually own yet?!?! how does that work, does the burglar drop stuff off where you live?

So it's a different scenario to the desert island collection? Damn! - lol


I'd have to re-evaluate my list. Can the burglar just leave me my hard drive? I'm trading 10 items for 1?
