I'm guessing if you light the oil lamp (which would be easiet to light anyways), then you would have all the light you needed until the oil ran out, because with a little bit of kindling and some newspaper, you'd never get a good fire started. You need better wood/stuff to burn. Now, it didn't say the quantity of the newspaper/kindling, but I'm guessing it's not much.

The match of course. How else would I be able to see the oil lamp, newspaper and kindling wood. I would next light the lamp and use that to start a fire (if there is a fireplace).

The match. Obviously. Then I'd use the match to light the lamp. By the light of the lamp I'd build a fire using the wood, and then use the newspaper to transfer the flame from the lamp to the fire.

I would light the oil lamp. Because then you can light the others. However if the newspaper was The Express then I would light that first out of desparation.

the newspaper is sure to catch fire. Then you can light the lamp with that.

I think I'd burn anything in - and any area where - A"Sexy"Babe has been into, at Survey Central. Then, further disinfect the contaminated objects with industrial-strength compounds. Then, I'd leave you SC losers behind, to deal with A"Sexy"Babe's lingering stench.

Yo, "ASexual" ... watch the language, huh? I'm sure it's difficult enough for you to have to peck at your keyboard (the flat thing in front of you 17 hours a day), to find all those funny-shaped things that, to you, must only slightly resemble letters of the alphabet ... but, GOOD GOLLY! Attempting to sound out words containing greater than two syllables ... well, over-extending yourself so will only tire you more quickly. (More quickly, that is, than it is for you to 1) try to keep your eyes open and 2) also staying conscious. Doing all those things at the same time must fatigue the likes of you so.)

Thanks for the effort, though, sport.

In case you hadn't noticed. ASB is loved at SC too. Shame that you're really not......

Yo, Winkles: If *your* "love" was something I needed out of life - either remotely or direly - I would still choose joining hands with a sopping wet-with-snot salamander before considering any form of endearment from the likes of you. I would even look at Mandy - I mean look *right* *at* *her*, for an entire 1/2 *minute* - before calling on your pathetic simulation and imitations of feelings.

Piece of advice to you: Stop trying to mimic us human beings. It only discloses how indistinctly you're in touch with the world. (I'm certain the distance with real people isn't *your* choice, but can you blame us?)

Havagoodday!

Well, as far as trolls go, you're a tad more amusing than the ones we usually get......

Last time I had a big needle stuck in my arm for a blood test, no blood actually came out. Maybe you're right and I'm not human. Do I care? Nope.....

And thankyou, my day has been perfectly good so far.

"ASexyNot": I've been called a lot worse ... by much better. And to follow your suggestion of "eating you" would entail expenses for delousing services in which, alone, far exceed even Gates' budget for such lavishness.

Thank you for your attentiveness to my ways of flirting with disaster, but I think I'll wait for the brave souls of Fear Factor to take on *that* challenge, thank you.
