heres a riddle for you guys.


You get kidnapped one night and get knocked out. The next day you wake up in the middle of an island. You realize that there are four items with you.

1. 50 feet of rope.
2. 12 pack of bottled water.
3. 5 matches
4. life size poster of Pam Anderson.


With these items you have to escape the island. Now this island is not a typical island. it is about 2 miles long and about 500 yard wide, about 150 feet high off the water.

The first day your there you scout out the island. That night lightning hits the east part of the island and starts a fire.

More bad news, there is a 15 mile an hour wind going west and you guess it will be there in about 2 hours.

With the 4 items you have you have to live thru that fire.

How do you escape the fire???


pm me if you think you know.

My Solution,


Gonna set a back-fire to burn against the wind from my location. Wet the ground vegetation with some of the water and use the matches and poster to light a fire on the E side of the damp fuel. Make the back-fire line as long as possible going N&S. In 2 hours the back-fire should have made a reasonably wide buffer between you and the head fire and giving you a safe place to wait for the fire to burn out or around you. Guess I would use the bundled rope (dampened) to swat out any flames that escape my line.
