2012-10-07 03:36:55 PM  
can I assume my wife is ambulatory?
2012-10-07 03:41:22 PM  
the wooden toilet roll handle.
2012-10-07 03:47:22 PM  
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?
2012-10-07 03:50:57 PM  
After family, my 1973 Telecaster, my hard drives that have all family pictures, movies, and important documents.

Camera, and I'd take pictures of the inferno. I have off-site backups of data so my computer can fry. Lots of personal items I'd hate to lose but no one thing that stands out crying "save me! save me! aiiiee, I'm burning, save me! you could have at least dusted me once -- *crack*"
2012-10-07 05:37:50 PM  
Rephrase the question....Your house is on fire, IF YOU COULD ONLY TAKE ONE THING OUT OF THE HOUSE, what would it be?

The fire.
2012-10-07 05:48:56 PM  
My porn collection. Oh, alright, my wife. Grumble.
2012-10-07 05:51:30 PM  
Nothing. In fact I probably wouldnt leave the house if it was on fire. I would just sit there until it was over.

The bacon.
2012-10-07 06:51:23 PM  
The firehose to put out the fire
2012-10-07 06:51:55 PM  
I guess my computer? My cell phone/wallet/keys are all usually in my pockets already anyway. My dog is smart enough to follow me out on his own.
2012-10-07 06:52:04 PM  
My voter I.D.

2012-10-07 06:53:15 PM  
It happened to me. 2am. Not enough time to even grab my robe, I ran out of the house in my birthday suit.

Dude, insurance will replace the pets. Are you going to file a claim for your porn collection?
2012-10-07 06:53:43 PM  
My little rat dog.

2012-10-07 06:55:31 PM  
I have a go bag with passport, cash, and credit cards.

a friend of mine's house burnt down and I learnt from them that not having ID in America is a nightmare
2012-10-07 06:56:37 PM  
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.
2012-10-07 06:56:58 PM  
The little rolling suitcase I have packed in case of such an event.

After it happened to my neighbors across the street, I started storing my old photo albums, passport, and a few mementos in that piece of luggage so I could grab it in a hurry.
2012-10-07 06:57:03 PM  
That is easy, my ammunition for my .44. It could kill someone if a fire ignited it and that would be my ass.

My records. Or synthesizes. It would be a long decision and I'd probably burn
2012-10-07 06:58:48 PM  
My animals.
