    Hello,

    My name is Alex Italics. I recently discovered this thread posted by "melbo" on your message board. I just want to say how awesome I thought all of your responses were!

    Several of you seemed suspicious that I was poking fun at survivalism. Maybe a little, but only in fun. I swear! I was definitely taking a bigger shot at the absurdity of that tired old desert island icebreaker question that everybody seems to love asking at parties.

    I wish someone had sent me a link to this thread! I had to stumble across it. Nevertheless, it made my day for sure. "Ghrit" was correct by saying that the letter was sent to other groups. In fact, I sent the identical letter to three other survivalist organization and three entertainment organizations. I received no official replies! To "Tango3", I promise you that I am not yuppie scum. Please do not make me eat Subaru tires!

    If anyone is interested, my other letters are available at www.AlexItalics.com. I hope that you will include printed copies of my letters in all of your future survival kits.

    Thanks again, guys!

    Yours truly,
    -Alex Italics

    I guess we all have our internet world. I visited your blog/myspace site. You write quite well and I agreed with your conclusions; however, I have to be honest when I ask, "Does anyone really give a shit about what you write?"

    I thought I had way too much time on my hands and that is a bit evident by the fact that I am past 1 sentence in responding to your post. I read the thread linky you posted above and thought the "social party", ice breaker question to be silly. If you asked, "If you were stranded on a desert Island and you could have only 3 items, what would they be?"

    You would get 2 of the same answers from most everyone, and then the third would be different: 1) Magnifying Glass 2) Knife 3) Axe

    Why magnifying Glass? Sunny Island = easy way to make fire

    Why Knife? indespensible method to clean fish after you make a spear with it to catch the fish and many other useful

    Why Axe? Permanent shelter creation. Stranded means for good so you might as well make the best one possible. It could also help in making a dugout canoe, cistern (carve inside of tree out) or a giant pile of wood which you could ignite incase there was a possibility of being seen by a plane or ship at sea.

    Alex, a lot of us are a bit rough around the edges, but you'll find no better a bunch of folks on the web. Stick around. In spite of yours and our best efforts, chances are we'll all learn something.[booze]
