Boredom is killing me. Leave me hanging at your own peril. What is your top five deserted island list of deserted island lists that every Internet forum participant (or, at least CPS participants) should be ready to offer when challenged?

List, discuss, critique:

1) Survival tools needed for a deserted island
2) Distilled spirits
3) Books
4) Pipe tobacco
5) Music albums/playlists

It depends on the climate.

A deserted island in the Aleutians: a Yukon stove.
A deserted island in the tropics: A kerosene powered fridge.

You may need to consider a top five deserted island climates list.

My Saxophone and lots of sheet music (Blues, SKA)
A couple of flats of Remington STS No.8s, a Perazzi MX2000, a Trius clay target launcher and the Swedish Bikini Team to keep score.

Little-remembered fact:
The Swedish Bikini Team/Coors Light ad campaign of 1991 was killed by the same woke enthusiasm that eventually gave us the Dylan Mulvaney/Bud Light debacle of 2023.

According to Wikipedia:
The Swedish Bikini Team was a group of American female models who appeared in an advertising campaign for Old Milwaukee beer.
[...]
While the campaign generated widespread interest, the advertisements were dropped after protests by the National Organization for Women and female employees of the Pabst Brewing Company.

It's funny how a swiftly cancelled beer ad campaign can live on for 33 years -- but those woke whiners won't survive a week on my deserted island.

Model 12 Pump shotgun, with plenty of shells.
Model 700 bolt action rifle, probably a .270, with plenty of ammo.
Rod, reel and tackle.

That's 5 "items".

Five tobaccos would be 4 lbs of a good English or Oriental, and 1 lb of Macanudo cigars, probably the Prince Phillip Cafe.
