Friday Fun Link – What Would You Take If Your House Was Burning Down? (Photos)

An interesting question – people are asked to take a photo of what they’d take from their house if it was burning down.  I mean, obviously, the right answer is “nothing” and “get the hell out as fast as possible.” Also, “make sure my family is out” is an acceptable answer.

From the stuff photographed, I think it’s being interpreted along the lines of “What’s so valuable/sentimental to you, that you couldn’t stand to lose it (or it would be irreplaceable?)”

In that case, it’d probably be:
– my MacBook & iPhone (okay, and why not, our iPad too!)
– I keep something I call a Memory Box where I throw odd trinkets – letters (how rare those are anymore), newspaper clippings (or whole newspapers on significant days like 9/11 or the day Pace was born), some concert tickets, etc. so I’d probably keep that.  Pace has one too so I’d grab his as well.
– various older photos/photo albums which aren’t digitized onto my laptop
– wallet/passport

I’m sure there’s probably a few obvious things I’m missing (car keys? Birth certificate?) but that’s the things that come to mind.
