    The three things that I would want with me if I found myself buried alive in a wooden box are:1. A six-pack of Druidia Canned-Air from Spaceballs2. A iPhone 4 preloaded with the iDig application and Facebook application3. a briefcase Inception dream machineHere’s what I would do with the following: First, I would turn on the iPhone and click on the Facebook application. I would update my status in a way to let my friends and family know that I am in danger, where I was last, so they can contact the authorities immediately or try to find me themselves. I don’t want to TWEET this information. With all the retweets and whatnot mine might get lost in the pile. Facebook is the ultimate social experience and I trust Mark Zuckerberg’s program over the government or Twitter anyday of the week. Next, I would turn on the iDig application. The iDig application is a REALLY expensive app that when activated sends a direct signal to the offices to all our major government defense offices (FBI, CIA, NSA) and it shows on their computers my exact location.Next, I would open up all six cans of my Druidia Canned Air from Spaceballs for extra oxygen just in case our government needs more time. Finally, I would take my briefcase Inception dream machine, already loaded with the strongest sleep/dream inducing drug possible so that I can go down four layers and live a full life, just in case the government can’t pull it off.

    My three things I hope to find:
    - A tiny robot that has the personality of Ty Pennington from Extreme Home Makeover
    - A shrink-ray
    - Wilson the volleyball from Cast Away

    I want the robot with Ty’s personality to give my box an Extreme ‘Coffin’ makeover. Have it make all the furniture, do-dads, and trinkets any home wouldn’t be complete without. Once that’s done, I would use the shrink-ray on myself to make myself tiny enough to make the coffin my permanent home. Just so I won’t get lonely I would hope to find Wilson the volleyball from Cast Away there so I wouldn’t ever get lonely. Of course I’d have to remember to use the shrink ray on him first before I used it on myself so I didn’t get crushed to death if the ball happened to roll over.

    three things…Buried Alive For Dummies book by author Paul Conroy, a can of spackle, a ‘real’ Willy Wonka Everlasting Gobstopper

    the Buried Alive For Dummies book would have a built in mobile phone on the back cover. One of the chapters would give anyone a lesson on if you get a call on your phone while buried alive, and it is from the company you happen to work for, either hang up immediately or don’t say a word. The can of spackle is to fix those darn holes that could potentially be in your coffin and this would prevent any snakes from coming in and scaring the life out of you or to prevent sand and dirt to leak through. Why have water when you can have a ‘real’ Willy Wonka Everlasting Gobstopper? I mean, your mouth generates fluid when you have anything in your mouth, so you wouldn’t ever end up getting dry, it tastes delicious, and your food source basically never depletes so people have plenty of time to try and find you.
