About This Quiz
The most popular hypothetical question in the world is the one about being stranded on a deserted island. If you were going to wind up on a chunk of sand with some palm trees in the middle of nowhere, what would you bring with you? What one thing would you want to have more than anything else? It's actually a pretty tough question to answer. Do you answer it seriously? That can't be easy because, for real, you're probably in for a bad time no matter what you bring. A machete isn't going to save your life. Neither is a phone, a lighter, or Skittles.
If you're stuck on a deserted island you need to think of it more like what it is - a tropical island. People pay a lot of money to go to tropical islands on vacation. So don't bring goofy survival tools, who needs that? We bet we can figure out what you'd really want to bring to that island in the middle of nowhere, even if it's a little ridiculous. At the end of the day, the world needs more ridiculous stuff in it anyway, that's half the fun of being here. So pack your towel and sandals and take the quiz!
No one ever asks how you got on this deserted island. What do you think is the most likely explanation?
