Mirror: Any small piece of mirror will do when you are trying to signal rescue planes above, but we prefer the ones that look like cookies.
Bite and Sting Kit: It would kinda' suck to survive a plane crash only to get taken out by a snake bite or some wasps. Don't be that guy.
Water Purifier: Chances are that when your plane goes down, it won't crash land beside a mountain spring flowing with clean water. A water filter is a must and there are several different shapes and sizes to choose from.
What's one job you would want to do so well that when people saw it, they'd say 'that person deserves a raise?'
Theodore Levon Upshaw sold heroin straight out of a McDonald's. Why rent a storefront when you can do it outta your workplace?
Lubbock, TX: Those nipple rings can be a bitch to remove. Just ask Mandi Hamlin. TSA told her she wouldn't be allowed on the plane unless she took the rings out. When one gave her trouble, she had to use pliers to get it out. Hijacking averted.
Red First Aid Kit: Sure, it's obvious to take a first aid kit, but why red? Because if you are stranded, you will hopefully have rescuers searching for you from the sky. Do we have to spell it out for you?
