    Okay... your house is on fire. All the people and pets are out safe. You can run back in and save five things. A water hose does not count :D

    1) The folder of drawings and handmade gifts that my kids have given me

    2) small teddy bear I had as an infant.

    3) my college ring (I never wear it, so it would have to be saved)

    4) G.I. Joe I had as a kid in the early 1970s

    5) my grandfather's hat

    honorable mentions (with me, there are always honorable mentions) :p

    tool collection from back when I worked as a mechanic (probably the only replaceable things I would consider saving)

    my Russian watch

    The Hawaiian shirt I wore on the first date I had with my wife

    1. My digital camera (and charger).

    2. My external hard drive, with all my pictures + music backed up on it (haha, it's not Apple!)

    3. My wallet ;)

    4. My Nalgene water bottle that has been everywhere with me...and I mean everywhere.

    5. Like the OP's #2, an old stuffed animal (a bear) from my childhood.


    My iBook would be #1 if the list included Apple products...and I could actually care less about my iPod, since it's easily replaceable...

    1. My chinchilla
    2. My guinea pig

    Neither of my pets are more important than the other, so I just put them in the same order I got them. Also, they can't run out on their own, so I am assuming they don't fit in the OPs rules ;)

    3. Oliver Otter (this HUGE stuffed otter my fiance bought me)
    4. MacBook Air - I am a CS student so this is my life, even if it is an Apple product :p
    5. External hard drive with all my photos on it.

    1) My Land Rover
    2) My Blanket (no lie)
    3) A picture of my dog and I at the beach
    4) My Western Digital My Book HD with all my files backed up
    5) My box of elementary school work*

    *I remember my 2nd grade teacher telling us how when we were big kids in high school it would be fun to look back on our childhood work. We'll a couple days a go I pulled out this giant box in my basement with my elementary school work. I found my Kindergarten letter to Santa asking for a living pet platypus, a power wheels, a real elf to have as a friend, and some other toys.

    Remember when the days were just so much simpler...

    Down the road from where my dad used to live this guy had a hydraulic jack in his garage and when ever he had it all the way up you could see it in the upstairs windows. :) It was a Camel Trophy edition Discovery.

    I thought of this when I read your post because I thought it was interesting that you apparently keep your Land Rover in your house :)

    VVV AHA! Another one who keeps their car in their house! ;) Darn you people and your fancy shmancy garages.

    4. My cell phone. I don't actually like it that much but it's really important anyways.

    I'd go back for the kids, that's it. There is nothing else worth going into a burning house for.

    and my SD card adapter:

    it's a life saver and recycles old SD cards that were outgrown by the digital camera.
