Only items necessary to survival, like food, shelter, toiletries, and medicine if needed.

The way I interpreted it is you're cut off from new media, hence no tv or internet. regardless I'd still do it.

Yea I assume you would have nothing other than food, water, a mattress and somewhere to piss and shit. I'm hoping this also includes things like toothpaste and a toothbrush, things that will at least keep you healthy. But nothing that involves any sort of fun.

I was thrown off by him saying "on an island"

if you're shut up in a room with no amenities, why exactly does this have to take place on an island?

Maybe it's an empty room on an island in case you claw your way out of the room. Double whammy.

That confused me too. I'm just going to assume this would be a controlled thing in an empty room. I don't want to dick around on an island where I can actually die.

No. My sanity is not worth it. Nor could I spend a yr away from my wife and four kids. This last yr alone the have grown so much, and no amount of money could ever replace that.

Im actually surprised at how many people said yes. I can only imagine what some of you would do to trade bodies with Lebron James Most of my class said no. I said no myself. Just try to picture how long a year is just eating, sleeping and staring at 4 walls with no notion of time.
