Was redirected to this goofy blog page - and devoted about 20 minutes of multi-tasking brain cycles to it.

Scenario:

You are being forced to spend the next 10 years of your life in a basement. After those 10 years, you will receive $10 million.

Your basement comes fully furnished with a good bed, sink, a toilet, a shower and a trash chute.

You are also being given a bonus 30 points to spend on items/amenities that you can take with you to your basement.

BONUS BONUS: If you halve your $10 mil payout to $5 mil, you will receive 35 points to spend. If you reduce your payout to zero, you receive 40 points.



- Full kitchen, unlimited amounts of the finest ingredients and an iPad that is programmed with every recipe on the planet (iPad for recipe use only) 6 points
- Medical care from the medical school of New Delhi. Upgrade to Mayo Clinic doctor for +1. 2 points
- 52" TV with all the cable channels and premium packages. 7 points
- Surround sound system with all recorded music. 4 points
- Library and study with every book ever published. 4 points
- A skylight which will provide sunlight in your basement. 2 points
- Hygiene products and a jacuzzi bath tub. 3 points
- Garden with greenhouse. 2 points

It'd be a walk in the park.

If ya can't beat 'em... pay someone to do it for you.

I'd take the stunningly attractive 18 year old for 18 points, the library and study for 4 points, the kitchen for 6 points, and a garden with a greenhouse with 2 points.

My thought is, you spend 10 years without any human contact, you're coming out insane. Just hope we're compatible... I imagine if it's just the two of you, you find a way to make things work.

I wonder, what would have happened had Adam and Eve had a spat when they first met and never hooked up? Would God have to reboot the Garden of Eden from scratch and have another go at it? (Technically, I suppose this did happen, with Adam and Lilith...)

How about going with the 40pt option.

To me, this kind of thing is only worth it if you get a good amount of money, so I wouldn't think of going for the 40-point option.

If I just used 30 points:
18-year-old
Unlimited booze
Jacuzzi and hygiene products (after all, a lot of sex over 10 years will work up a stink)
Garden

If I used 35 points:
18-year-old
Unlimited booze
Jacuzzi and hygiene products
Pool Table
Full kitchen

The 40 point option is inconsiderable. To spend ten years doing anything and have nothing monetary to show for it would be unthinkable, especially confinement in a basement. So now I am left with the 30 or 35 point option. Obviously, I would like to try for the 30 point option and get the $10 million pay out. Unfortunately, I don’t think I could be alone for ten years and that is a very expensive amenity in this scenario. Also, I believe health and physical conditioning to be paramount. Combined, those aren't cheap either. Lastly, but certainly not "leastly" (not a word), the mind cannot be wasted as it surely would be, sitting in a damn basement for 10 years with no stimulation. To meet all of these requirements and still have a hefty amount of money when I am through, I would choose the following:

35 Points, $5 Million Pay out

18 Points/18 Year Old Girl - Honestly, I would rather have an attractive woman who is my age; I get annoyed quickly with younger people. Who knows, maybe 10 years without the stupidity of media and other distractions, and she wont be so bad. Having another person with you at all is, in my opinion, of the greatest importance. There are so many things that having someone there will bring to the table. Being a woman and a man together, the obvious one is sex. (assuming you are heterosexual) However, other things like: conversation, a second point of view, joking around, playing games, intellectual stimulation, assistance with numerous activities and/or necessities, and help in case of emergencies like injury or illness. I could go on and on ... a companion is the most important thing ... PERIOD.

6 Points/Full Kitchen Package - Healthy eating is important, especially if you are confined to a basement. The lack of vitamin D alone would make you incredibly depressed and unhealthy. You must combat that with proper nutrition, it will make you feel better and give you more energy to help fight the depression. Also, having every cooking ingredient ever would have MANY more benefits than good food and nutrition. Many cooking ingredients can be combined and used in a plethora of other applications such as medicine, hygiene, entertainment, sex, and others.

5 Points/Fitness Equipment Package - Physical conditioning is important for depression, general health, and entertainment. Plus, with ten years to focus on only a few things, one of them being fitness, you could come out looking like Gerard Butler ... except way better (in case you don’t know, this would be referred to as super badassery) ... enough said about that.

4 Points/Library Package - Ten years with every bit of knowledge and information ever known to humankind?
Entertainment level: Unlimited
Intelligence level: Omnipotence

2 Points/Medical Care - No matter what happens, I want to know I wont die from something I can't prevent. Like mold spores in the basement, a damn infection from a cut, or bleeding out from an injury. I mean it could still happen, but I would at least like to know I had a bad-ass medical team that did their best.

Well, there you have it. The best amenities I could come up with. If you chose a TV, I hate you.

At first I decided I wanted the $10m option with stock markets enabled, for a conservative increase to $16m. After thinking it over, I really have very little need for that much money and 10 years is a long time. So I skipped the stock market and went with 35 points instead, wanting a comfortable life for those 10 years. I don't particularly find stock markets entertaining anyway, and I'd be unable to make educated guesses about anything other than index investments.

6 Full kitchen
First I went with fast food, reasoning that with all fast food options available I could get plenty greens and eat a fairly balanced diet. With 35 points available, this seems like a good place to spend another two. Expected daily time usage: 2 hours.

1 Pool Table
I'm an ambitious pool player and I'd be such a shark if I got 10 years of intense practice. I'm good at practicing alone, and as long as it's not all the entertainment I had available to me I'd easily be able to spend several hours on this every day. Expected daily time usage: 4 hours.

3 Doctor
Not taking any risks with my health, even though it's pretty good as is. I could settle for the Indian doctor, but I had a point to spare.

5 Gym
I frequently bike and run, without those options I'd need other means of regular exercise. I'd also more easily be able to muster the discipline to work out properly without a computer distracting me, and I'd love to get in better shape. Expected daily time usage: 3 hours.

7 Cable TV
I can be a couch potato with the best of them, and I have a much easier time working out if I get to watch TV at the same time. Full cable package sounds good, there should be plenty options for entertainment and education. And porn <3

3 Hygiene
I could do without this, depending on what's available without it. If I was able to wash and cut my hair, trim my beard and cut my finger nails I'd be fine without the hygiene package. Expected daily time usage: 30 minutes.

3 Cell phone
I'm married, I'd want to be able to stay in touch with my wife and have steamy phone sex once a week <3 Expected weekly time usage: 3.5 hours

2 Skylight
This would do a lot for my mood, being without natural sunlight for an extended period of time messes with your head.


However, I wouldn't take this deal as there no way I would leave my wife for 10 years. Even if I was single, losing 10 years of your life for money sounds like a bad deal.

Oops. I didn't read all the rules, my bad. The rules make my brain hurt. I just want uninterrupted writing time. Cause, that will eventually pay out. Unless I suck.

For me there's no deal, no way I'm spending that long indoors for any amount of money.

Funny thing is, a lot of men would PAY $10 millions to be locked in a basement for 10 years with an 18-year-old girl.
