    Items you would take if your house was on fire?

    You can only grab as much as you can, so I'll take phone, wallet (chuck them each in a pocket), photo memory cards, some form of ID (like passport), and my bike assuming the garage was in engulfed in flames and then I might die a rather slow death if I have no exit points.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Firstly i'd be grabbing the insurance documents tbh.

    Yeah, Wallet, phone.... Driving licence is in the wallet so that'll do for now, The box of important paperwork (easily carriable, smaller than briefcase and has a handle). Couple of important photo's, rest of my possessions can easily be replaced.

    For a 'communist' material wealth seems to be rather high on your list of priorities…
    Surely a copy of ‘The Communist Manifesto’ or Mao's ‘Little Red Book’ should be saved?
