NewportBarGuy: You answered that question (I also had the same ?) with so much awesomeness. Thanks for sharing. What an awesome piece and presentation. Cherish that always.
JesseL: After 96 years and four (going on five) generations in the family it's not going to be lost on my watch./assuming kid, wife, and pets are okay of course
taurusowner: some silver or gold rounds (might not be able to afford gold but silver is easy)
brantgoose: Number one: the contents of my pockets.The contents of my pockets.Since the last fire, I've resolved to work on speed. Seeing the flames roar up one wall and down the other convinced me that the key thing to consider in a house fire is speed, promptness of action, speed and speed.

DeArmondVI: My external HD.Pretty much most of my life's output (including wedding pictures, essays, journals, geneology, various demos for bands I've been in over the years etc.) is on it. Also, every CD or DVD I have ever owned, and a good chunk of my favorite video games too./what's this "cloud" thing I keep hearing about?
PC LOAD LETTER: My porn collection. Oh, alright, my wife. Grumble.
Delay: NewportBarGuy: My Real DollKwame?
taurusowner: kiwimoogle84: My "box of important stuff."Some might argue that isn't one thing, but it's one box. It has my entire life in it. Photo albums, my will, my late husband's death certificate, social security card, insurance policy information, birth certificate, letters from my grandmother, etc.It's in my closet and if I had just that ONE box, I could start over and rebuild my life.A decent start. Though if I were you, I would spring for a lockable fireproof safe/box (though you might already have that) and also put a spare drivers license, passport, a decently large amount of cash, some silver or gold rounds (might not be able to afford gold but silver is easy), and maybe a small concealable handgun(if it's legal) in that same box. Memories are what you want to keep, but the box, backup money, and firearm are good ways how to keep them.
Molavian: taurusowner: some silver or gold rounds (might not be able to afford gold but silver is easy)Where can you pick that kind of stuff up?
JayR30: My kid and dog are ambulatory (nothing says otherwise). I would save my books. Nothing else is important to me. All my pics are backed up online
Hack Patooey: My ass
Publikwerks: wingedkat: Hack Patooey: My assyup.and the pets, if they aren't out already.Dude, insurance will replace the pets. Are you going to file a claim for your porn collection?
anotar: The ashtray, the remote control, the paddle game, this magazine and the chair. And I don't need one other thing except my dog.Well I don't need my dog.
cman: Nothing. In fact I probably wouldnt leave the house if it was on fire. I would just sit there until it was over.
Zarquon's Flat Tire: some_beer_drinker: the wooden toilet roll handle.Wow. Just wow.
bigpeeler: My house.
TheOther: taurusowner: rev. dave: That is easy, my ammunition for my .44. It could kill someone if a fire ignited it and that would be my ass.No it can't unless it's inside a firearm at the time. Ammunition needs the confines of a chamber to create the necessary force for the bullet to move and penetrate. The explosion of the powder in a chambered round has nowhere to go except forward, and it pushes the bullet out with the resulting speed and force. However, when a cartridges is ignited when not chambered it has almost no force. In fact, it will be the cartridge that will move while the bullet remains mostly in place since the brass is much lighter. Think of igniting a firecracker in your open palm. You might get a slight burn. But close your hand around the firecracker and you'll lose your fingers. The explosion of powder in a ammunition cartridge without the confines of a chamber is almost entirely harmless. The bullet won't even penetrate your clothes or leave a bruise.Hmmm...has this been demonstrated on Mythbusters?
