himself on a Caribbean
cruise and proceeded to have the
time of his life, that is, until the ship sank.
He soon found himself
on an island with no other people,
no supplies, nothing, only bananas and coconuts.
about four months,
he is lying on the beach one day
when the most gorgeous woman he has ever seen rows up to the shore.
he asks, "Where did you
come from? How did you get here?"
"I rowed over from the other side
of the island where I landed when my cruise ship sank."
"Amazing," he notes.
"You were really lucky to
have a row boat wash up with you."
"Oh, this thing?"
explains the woman.
"I made the boat out
of some raw material I found
on the island. The oars were whittled
from gum tree branches. I wove the bottom
from palm tree branches, and the sides
and stern came from a
did you get the tools?"
"Oh, that was no problem,"
replied the woman. "On the
south side of the island, a very
unusual stratum of alluvial rock is exposed.
I found that if I fired it to a certain temperature in my kiln,
it melted into ductile iron and I used that
to make tools and used the tools to
make the hardware."
The guy is stunned.

After they exchange their individual survival stories, the woman announces,
"I'm going to slip into something more comfortable. Would you
like to take a shower and shave? There's a razor
in the bathroom cabinet upstairs."
No longer questioning anything,
the man goes upstairs into the bathroom.
There, in the cabinet is a razor made from a
piece of tortoise bone. Two shells honed to a hollow
