Would you rather be marooned on a beautiful tropical island all by yourself, or somewhere much less pleasant (but still survivable) with a random stranger?
What's this less pleasant place? I'm already from Jersey, how much worse can it be?
I'd need companionship plus it'd give me someone to brainstorm with for survival & rescue
If its one handsome guy, HECK YEAH;)
if i could choose the stranger, id consider it. peace and quiet + a beautiful location are both pluses in my book. why would i want someone else there to mess up my serenity, in a crappy area no less. *boggle*
The stranger must be a male, attractive an hold convo. Actually scratch that. we don't really need to talk.
Could be an amazing stranger. After all strangers are friends we haven't met yet.
Can I bring weed?
It amazes me, just how much humans need human interaction in order to survive. If not for the company, it compensates for the hungry once the other drops.
If it's a random English speaker, then probably. If it's an English speaker and female, then yes. These are important contingencies.
I'd go crazy without someone else. I'd hate to be stranded with a jackass though.
Glenn beck? No, Rush Limbaugh. No wait,Michele Bachman. All three?
Two people can get more done and have a better chance of survival + isolation can drive social species (like humans) crazy
Me only, having a stranger sounds like the set up to a romantic comedy. Not too many people can be by themselves for long.
i chose me only because it didn't say what the other sex would be
Is the stranger hot and female?
WE HAVE TO GO BACK, KATE
What fun is beautiful tropical if you can't share it? I know some loners though. I'll miss them. :(
As long as that random person is a hot and pleasant girl
I would choose the not so pleasant place but God please make it Kate Upton!!!!!!!!!!
Since I can't select the person I picked the island. If I get lonely I can talk to the wildlife.
You'd pick no one over another man?
If that stranger was a really attractive girl than maybe. But I would do fine by myself, especially in a nice place :)
Depends. Long term or forever... Maybe a stranger. Short term... Definitely myself.
If I can have animals around, I couldn't care less what happened to everyone else. Now if I got to chose between my family on a rougher island or solitude, I'd probably go with my family. Random people, I have no connection with, nor do I much care about them.
An awful random stranger is preferable to slowly going insane from solitude.
Depends. On a rougher island, I wouldn't want another liability.
I like the beach. And I like myself. I think I'd be ok.
Naaaa no threat. :-) not in a political frazzle people mood tonight.
Depends on how hot she is and if she wants to repopulate!
Not that I'd really wanna be all alone, but the random stranger could be totally awful!!
You could always kill it for food
This was such a hard question!
I'm just crossing my fingers that this "random stranger" will be a total babe.
Well, considering my own shadow pisses me off, Id rather be solo, however, 2 is better than 1. Oh, and I wouldn't ENSLAVE them either (*clears throat* commenters below). And I had JUST stated how Americans have an unhealthy sense of entitlement.
Can I set the parameters of the sample pool? ????
The stranger better be hot.
After forever and a day, I bet you they will!
Most animals are social; therefore, in a paradise I'd have plenty of friends to talk to without ever arguing!
LISTEN TO ME YOU INSECT!????.
Us but the random stranger better be nice!
Pry myself. Hoping I get a cool sidekick monkey on the island.
People suck! I love myself!
Disowned my siblings, girlfriend lives 500 miles away, son is grown, single and living alone for the last 12 years.....so, not a big change so bring on paradise.
Disowned your siblings?!?! BRUTAL! Did they murder a family member or something???
The reason was posted as a poll question about two weeks ago. A Will dispute.
Not everyone has perfect families. It's not that uncommon for disputes anymore
Obama is president. That is all.
Baa haa haa!!
What if he was your random person? :-)
Hey…. That's not funny! ????????
Not an Obama fan Pink Reign?
If he was my random person, I'd give it 6 months before he'd want to tax my coconuts, I know it. No way...
How about we leave that opinion for another discussion, Zman! LOL!
Ha ha, ok lets do that.
Sounds like a plan... Next time.
Hidden, that almost came across as a threat! ????
Sorry Pink...I'm getting a bit tired, my response is my last entry at the top.
Oh, that's cool, Hidden. Get some sleep, sweetie.
Soon Pink, soon. Have a wonderful evening.
Thank you. You too.
Tough choice. But, from a survival perspective, the other person would be a protein source. ????
Ooh, I didn't think about that. Well, if that's the reason for the rando (or 1 of) then Ill pass on this adventure. I've seen 'Alive' - no bueno!
Give me the beautiful tropical island that meets my every need and I can get by with being alone.
Everyone knows that people are ašsholes. I would just be the head ašshole on the island.
Depends on if the stranger is female,
Attractive, and if her voice is not annoying.
Otherwise I'll just stick to: WILSON!!!!
Tom Hanks starring in Castaway was all about this. We Are a social species and isolation is more painful than struggle.
I'm not really a people's person; I'd much rather be alone.
I would love to be alone and be able to relax. :)
As long as there's an abundance of rum, I don't care
For the record, I may be the stranger.
I don't care where it is, as long as Im not alone. Being alone short term is okay, but marooned? Yeah right.
I have a favorite phantasy: that suddenly all people are gone and I'm marooned on a planet devoid of people.
