This is a question Desperate Times

Stranded in a hotel in an African war zone with no internet access for two weeks, I was forced to resort to desperate measures. Possessing only my passport and the clothes I stood up in; and the warning "You can catch it shaking hands with a vicar out there" ringing in my ears, I had to draw my own porn in order to preserve my sanity.

Alas, it all came out looking like Coronation Street's Audrey Roberts, but, as they say, any port in a storm.

What have you done in times of great desperation?

In my teenage years, a friend and I decided to venture into the depths of The Queens Woods (just next to Highgate Woods) in North London to consume much alcohol and smoke a few doobs.

We got some of those "stick in the ground" lanterns and consumed a few beers...unfortunately, the wicks on our lanterns were burning low and occasionally blowing out. Disgusted with the unreliability of my disposable lighter, I trudged off for a well needed piss to leave Tony to reignite the only source of light we had left. Returning to our plot spot, in the middle of quite a large woodland in the middle of the night, I find my old pal Tony pouring Stella Artois into his Zippo because "all alcohol is flammable...isn't it?". Needless to say, our venture back OUT of the woods took a few more hours than our trip into it...

Desperate times? Desperate measures? Not really, but I do still think that old Tone is a bit of a cunt...

I'd have probably done it too
I thought all alchohol was flammable. Now I feel stupid.

All alcohol is flammable
but it constitutes only about 5% of a can of lager. The rest is mostly water, which is definitely not flammable.

And doobs? That's what we used to call condoms when I was at school, before anyone had heard the word 'condom'. Wouldn't make a very good smoke, I'd imagine! :-)
