Basically its which one scares you less or which one would be 'funner' for you lol. Both of these situations scare the crap out of me, I'm terrified of going into space and I hate swimming in the ocean, being at the bottom would be worse. But if I had to choose I would probably want to be at the bottom of the ocean, because I'll still be on earth and if something went wrong there were be a little better chance of being rescued. Rescue would be hard if you were in space with a busted ship or something. But I'm just being paranoid. No garuntee anything bad would happen.

I would rather be at the bottom of the ocean because you can find cool stuff down there, fossils, etc. And you can see all the cool, pretty underwater life.

Chances of surviving is still higher if one is in the ocean because one would still have air and unlimited supply of food (though raw!). In space one could die instantly. No one can survive in open space.

I think I would choose space because I've never been to space and it's always fascinated me. I've been to the ocean plenty of times although I'm sure the bottom would be different. Also, I'd feel more like a pioneer being in space. However, you're right. There is more chance of rescue at the bottom of the ocean which of course is a factor.

lol I really wouldn't enjoy doing either of these..because I get claustrophobic and I think being in either situation would defeniatly make me feel trapped! lol.

I don't think either of them would be fun for me. I don't like flying and I can't swim. I think if I had to choose, I would probably choose the bottom of the ocean. At least that way, I could spend my last hours viewing all the sealife around me, if I was eaten first...lol.

I would much rather be in space!!!! I am terrified of the ocean. All those sharks and other things that could take a bite out of you! Very scary!!! But at least in space, there would not be sharks. Both situations can be deadly to not be able to breathe. And at least in space, it would hold many wonderful sights!!! :)

I think that i would chose to go to outer space because there are lots of ways that you can be found out there! I mean who is going to be at the bottem of the ocean just taking a cruse! Nobody! But in space there will be spaceships, satilites, the space station!

Oh, that is an easy one! I would love to be in outer space! I have hoped since I was little that they would actually get the space colonization program moving, but now I guess I have to hope it'll happen for my kids. I like to swim, but I don't like the idea of being at the bottom of the ocean and developing a leak!

I think being in space would be more fun! It just hasn't been explored as much and is a real mystery..

I feel fun to do everything I'm interested in. I like adventures in mylife and feel like I'm born to enjoy life. You have a interesting question which is hard to respond as I will love to do both of them and hard for me to choose anyone of them. I would love to goto space to see how exactly the whole universe looks like . I have seen many pictures of all planets but hard to believe that planets look so beautiful from outside their atmosphere (exterior most layer ) . I would love to goto bottom of sea to see how fish and other water animals live. How they eat , how they swim and I want to see beauty at it's best . I have tried scuba diving once in life and enjoyed it very much.
