Shows like Cast Away by Tom Hanks and Lost has one common thing, getting trapped in an island. Although they show different plots, the setting is almost the same. If you are trapped in an island alone or with your wife/husband/partner, what would you do?

I would try to build a shelter on the tropical island to live in. I would make it from pieces of driftwood and palm tree leaves. I would try to throw a rock up and hot a coconut in the hope it falls but doesn't bang me on my head. I would hopefully have my swimming costume and snorkeling mask with me so I could go swimming in the crystal clear ocean. I would enjoy watching the sunset every night. Then I would like seeing the stars in the night sky. Hopefully I would be comfortable in my little shelter. It would be a blissful place to live until someone comes along and rescues me.

Hi, depend what kind of islands, if is one where they will find me soon, i will wait, and maybe i will try to find some fruits or fish, and try to find a good place where i can wait. But if i ll wait, and see that nowbady can find me, in the middle of Pacific, where is impossible to find me...i will try to built a new life...gardening, maybe i will learn to hunting, fishing, built a home...any way i will survive in a way or other. I am not one who will give up very easy....any way, i prefear to be there with somebody, lonliness can kill us step by step

thanks for the response, hunting and fishing will be a big challenge most especially if we don't have the proper tools. you are right, being alone and lonely will drive us nuts...
