Default Your house is on fire...

and you only have time to bring one thing with you as you evacuate. What do you save? I just thought it'd be fun to see what's the one thing people value above everything else. And before you people start nitpicking, your family, significant other, pet, and roommates are already outside waiting for you. There's no one in the house left to save. Just you and your stuff. As for me, I guess I'd save this one really nice birthday card that my family gave me one year. I've had it for a really long time and I still love it to this day.

I'd have to say my old Barney. It's been with me since my parents bought it for my birthday and it brings back my childhood.

If I'm ever in my house, I'd most likely be in my bedroom.

The only thing worth saving there would probably be my laptop. My laptop is important because it contains some valuable files regarding academics and work, as well as other stuff like music. This is also assuming I don't already have my purse on me which would include (usually) my phone, identification, and a little cash. So yeah, it'd be my bag or my laptop.

I can't think of anything physical that means a lot to me and can't be replaced, so I'd probably just pick up whatever's most expensive. Probably my laptop or PS4. Seems pretty lame, I know.

I mean if I could save my piano I would totally do that, but that's unrealistic.

I don't really think I own much that's irreplaceable or has huge sentimental value (guess that's just not really the kind of person I am). I mean, there's stuff that'd be a big pain to replace, like ID and perhaps other things contained in my wallet, but pretty much everything about dealing with a house burning down is a pain and I'm not sure how much of a difference adding that on top would make.

I guess when it comes down to it I'd need to choose the single most valuable object I own, which would be my laptop. All my files are backed up online so even if I lost it I could manage, but, I mean, it's my most expensive personal possession, so that's what it comes down to. I'd certainly like to salvage my game collection, but I don't think any single game I own is valued at over $100 nor any console I own over $200.

I don't know... I don't really have anything I feel sentimental about. I would say my computer since it's the most expensive and most used item I own, but realistically I wouldn't have time to unplug everything, bundle up all the cords and save it, plus it's too big and heavy for me to carry. I'd also feel inclined to save my video games and consoles, but that's more than one item to save, plus again, so many cords and too much to carry with the house burning down.

This question is too hard and I have too much stuff I want to save! Maybe the only and only thing I save will be my favorite Diddy Kong plush. I dunno if I'd ever replace it, it would be so hard to find another just like it in good condition.

Baroque for Most Sentimental 2014.

I'd probably take all my weed. I mean it's a house fire. Last thing the police need is for my stupidity during illegal doping to be a cause.

Nah, in all seriousness I'd take my teddy bear. I don't care if I'm 22, that cherished possession will outlive me.

Since all my 3ds games already have been stolen, I guess I'd take my phone since I hardly use my xbox... But then again, dem ambassador games... WHY ARE CHOICES SO HARD?!

My computer.

But seriously this would be devastating. In real life circumstances. I would basically open/break the window in my room and start tossing as much stuff i could out the window.

It is a magical fire and if you decide to take more than one thing it will converge onto your skin. You will be sacrificed and the rest of the house will be left untouched as if the fire never happened.

Probably my bug out bag.
If my house burned down I wouldn't have any place to stay.
So I'd set up camp in the park probably.
