    I do hope you're not getting soppy and sentimental on us - those characteristics are just not suitable for the macho world of educational IT

    There's nothing worth saving in my car (wife and daughter of course if they're in the car).

    I'd just let it burn......oh those lovely flames, they'll keep me warm....burn burn burn.........

    I very rarely have anything in my car which would be worth recovering - cars can be stolen so I don't keep anything irreplaceable in there.

    If the fire were at home, I would want to take my laptop as that has all my photos on it. Afterwards, I would also wish that I'd grabbed some cherished teddy bears, although I suspect that in the heat of the moment (if you'll excuse the pun) I would probably forget them :-(

    Re: Pointless Question of the Week #3

    This actually happened to one of our PE staff in Easter, the first thing he grabbed was his school laptop and phone (he thought the car might catch on fire). He placed the laptop next to a friends car who had stopped to help and walked away to talk to the police (in fairness to him he was in shock).

    When another policeman turned up he asked the friend to move his car which he did without question... can you see where this is going?! The family saloon car then reversed over the laptop... well, the front wheel did anyway!

    All in all if you are grabbing stuff don't place it NEXT to another car after an accident!

    But, one new screen later and the laptop is working fine... good old Dell Latitudes!

    Definately my guitar, which basically lives in the car due to the amount of travelling i've been doing lately.

    Also my fire staff, but that'd probably be the cause of any fires....

    Nothing worth keeping in our cars. A few music CDs, a packet of chewing gum/mints and not much else. I think it is best that way.
