Ok, this one will have very specific conditions.
The proposal: to spend one year alone on a tropical desert island, with no loss to your professional/family/study affairs, and you'll get one extra year of your salary at the end (if you don't work, imagine a good but not huge amount of money).
Details of the island:
- plenty of fresh water and trees
- no human beings
- relatively mild weather (some rain, but not storms or the like)
- lots of birds and small animals, but no dangerous ones and no poisonous fish
- some banana trees, coconuts and the like, but not so much that you can live off only of them for the whole year
The point is: there is no obvious danger, and you won't lack food and water even if you don't do anything, but not for the whole year.
So, for food, in the longer term you will have to do some fishing and/or hunting and/or grow your own food.
Before you go, you get:
- basic training on how to fish, hunt, grow your own food, and make fire using sticks, dry plants and the like.
You can take with you:
- just the clothes you're wearing (plus glasses if you wear them)
- one one-person's tent
- a lighter to make fire in emergencies (but not with enough fuel to use it the whole year)
- books, but not more than a total of 1000 pages
- seeds and the like to start your garden
- a knife
If you have an accident or get seriously will you can send a radio signal to be picked up, but if you do it once the exercise is terminated and you don't get the money, even if one day before the year is over.
The point is that you'll have to be able to take care of yourself, and be alone, but not in extreme conditions as in that Castaway movie with Tom Hanks. You're given a fair start.
The question is:
Would you in principle want to give it a try? Why? And if not, why not?
If you have family, partner, etc, try imagine you didn't - the same goes for if you need regular medication, etc.
