help?  
So we're doing this totally insane 'project' where we have to do a presentation for "if you were stuck on a desert island, what 10 drugs would you take with you?" Yeah Lost was the first thing I thought too.

We decided the list as a group and for our presentation are using a "I'm a celebrity, get me outta here" theme. Nope, I've never seen it. Honest.

Anyway I know have to decide what celebrities would be good examples to use for the drugs. Mine are:
  • Morphine
  • An antidepressant
  • Anti-epileptic
  • ACE inhibitor (used for high blood pressure and cardiac problems, i.e. after a heart attack)

    It's supposed to be humourous, don't know how well that's gonna pan out. Anyone got any suggestions on which people to use? I don't really know famous people! LOL :D

    I haven't actually even heard of "I'm a celebrity, get me outta here" - I presume thats a crappy reality TV show that we'll eventually get in Australia!?!?

    Anyway, i presume you have to say something about the drugs, and use humourous stories about celebrities, yeah??

    Apparently Sigmund Freud committed suicide with morphine --- there would have to be some joke about blaming the parents there somewhere (basically Freud was all about blaming the parents) but that might seem slightly morbid!!

    I read a story that I found quite funny about Keanu Reeves suffering from depression when he turned 40 (which was March last year). He said: "It was a nightmare. It reminded me of adolescence and it felt like an internal transformation with physical aspect, like when your hormones run wild ... But this time with a conscious shift, an awareness of your own mortality".

    Vincent Van Gogh had epilepsy - you could make a joke about how he may not have cut off his own ear if he was properly medicated!!

    Julius Caesar also had epilepsy, but at the time it wasn't properly understood --- apparently at the time human blood was thought to have curative powers and people with epilepsy around Ceasar's time were often seen sucking blood from fallen gladiators --- you could make some joke about how it would have been better if they had *insert drug name here*!!

    Anyway, feel free to use or completely ignore these ideas!! And good luck in the presentation.

    yep, really crappy reality show you should hope to god never to get anywhere.

    Thanks for the suggestions though. I especially like the epilepsy ones. :)

    You could always use Marvin for antidepressant!

    EEEEEE! YES!

    Do you think he's famous enough for normal people to get?

    No Marvin icon :(

    Yes he's famous enough for normal people to get he was a book a radio show a tv series and now a film and has been around for decades. I think that means you can use him without looking freakish

    You seem to have some fun suggestions already. So I'll just add Queen Victoria (after the death of Prince Albert) for the anti-depressants, and Michael Douglas for the ACE inhibitor. He's old and fat enough to perhaps need them, and he has to be able to keep upp with his beautiful young wife, Catherine Zeta Jones. (Oh, the Viagra jokes I could add to this comment. Hee!)

    ooh i love the Micheal Douglas idea :D

    Going to work on it now. :)
