It doesn't say anything about contraceptives though, so at some point the 18 year old will get pregnant. That alone makes me pick option 2.

C.) Stock market access - 7 points
D.) A cell phone activated once a week so i can call my broker and modify my highly conservative portfolio - 3 points.

There you go, that's exactly 30 points, I bang out a hot chick for 10 years, hire a money manager and have them grow the 10 million at a modest 5% per year which doubles by the time I'm out.

Edited: Option 2 cause someone said the Microwaveable food would kill you (i guess you can't ask for the healthy versions..)

1.) 18 year old again.

Got everything I need outside of p***Y....and I'll use my hand for the next 3,650 days, not including leap years....I'll abstain from jerking off on every February 29th.

I'd love the Internet, but it's too expensive and I can get by on tv and books.

I wanted the workout equipment, but I'll get by on running back and forth in my basement like a caged animal and doing pushups and other other exercises I can make up using things in the basement.

I can eat great, have a nice hobby with my greenhouse, read, watch TV, talk once a week on the cell phone to keep in touch....and with unlimited drugs, I'd probably choke to death on my own vomit on Day 4.

I'd make my own food, use the microwave in pinches. I'd have hygiene, health care and a way to exercise. The TV would keep me abreast of the news, and video games would pass time. I would try and get some sun from the skylight. I took the upgraded medical care and would try and get what little human interaction from my regular medical exams. In this scenario I would get all ten million.

okay good point.

Switch out the stockmarket access and cellphone access for the full kitchen/ingredients/ipad and the medical care, oh and sun light: which brings me to.

1.) 18 year old girl - 18 points
2.) kitchen and food - 6 points
3.) Sun light - 2 points
4.) Medical care - 2 points
5.) Radio (i don't care about this one really) - 2 points

That's really all i need since i don't watch TV as it is, I can workout w/o a gym (against the wall and using the floor) and since a 18 year old girl can do with you everything you'll ever need for entertainment in a 10 year period.

Look guys you need medical care, sun light, and food, those three at minimum costs you 10 points if you don't want to die in 10 years.

And then if you don't have human interaction ur probably crazy when you get out, and i don't know how you survive without sex for 10 years, so you HAVE to get the girl.

Honestly there is a right answer here, from my perspective.

I actually wondered about that. You get the microwave meals, though. There's other crossover things, Like you get an Ipad with the kitchen for "recipes" but if it's a fully funtioning Ipad do you need to get the computer for the wifi? Do they come update it for you? The PC option says not streaming or downloading anything. That excludes you tube, news channels with video, music - what's the point if that's the cutoff?

I might not last 10 years with an 18 yr old. Getting the medical care will be next on the list. Also if i can't bring my saxophone i couldn't go. They should have a choice for a musical instruments instead of video games. Only kids and untalented adults want to play with them. :)

This is a tough one, because if you take the 18 year old, you basically have to choose between the money up front/stock access and having healthcare.... plus you give up the gym and internet.

Okay. Got it. 30 points for the $10 million. Once I have the 10 mil, girls won't be a problem, so in the meantime the trick is to stay alive, in shape, and healthy:

Mayo clinic - 3
Hygiene/Jacuzzi - 3
Kitchen with all the goods (healthy food) - 6
Skylight (need sunlight) - 2

And for exercise:
(A study and library that can hold every published work is going to be enormous, so I can just go jogging in there every day. Not to mention all the reading, plus take the ten years to write a book or three) - 4

For mental health:
Sound system (got to have music) - 4
Garden and greenhouse (hobby) - 2
Train Set (another large area to exercise plus hobby) - 2
Pool table (entertainment) - 1
Cell phone - (Got to have human contact) - 3

kitchen, garden/greenhouse (this also makes the skylight worthless, for the record), workout room, library, cell phone, doctor, computer (only because I need to be able to write--who the **** would care about all the tech? you can't even do anything with it), radio.

Here's my cut: You are going to have a ton of time to kill, so the full kitchen, garden, library, and workshop seem like good bets. An 18 year old is going to get super annoying, unless you are really fortunate. It seems the only way to watch Bronco games is the 52" TV package. If there was a cheaper way to do that, I might switch. I'm also banking on sunshine with the greenhouse and hygiene with the medical care. Internet access with the cell would be a plus, but I'm not expecting it.

- 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
- Garden with greenhouse. 2 points
- Medical care from the medical school of New Delhi. 2 points
- Workshop with industrial tools, drawing table and supplies. 6 points
- A cell phone that can only be activated one day a week. 3 points
- Library and study with every book ever published. 4 points
- 52" TV with all the cable channels and premium packages. 7 points

A number of loopholes or interesting side effects, for those bored and interested:

-the greenhouse/garden, as already mentioned, is a source of light that far outstrips the skylight. it is also possible to grow any number of fruit, vegetables, or even drugs in the garden.

-$10 million is a pittance compared to the money you could make from some of these options, including unlimited drugs, the library (more on that later), every movie, etc.

-the doctor counts as human interaction. there also appears to be no limit on visits/calls. barry bonds is also human interaction, which everyone seems to be forgetting. is sex with the girl worth 11 points over bonds? there is no telling how terrible or annoying she could be. barry bonds is also worth bonus points if you are a woman (or a persuasive gay man).

-the radio brings with it news from the outside world, which cuts into the value of the internet. same with the TV.

-every video game ever made would also come with a cell phone and a many, many computers, though it is possible they would not be able to do anything save play the games in question. there are, however, a great deal of games that require an internet connection in order to function, which would presumably be provided. facebook games and the like are also an open question.

-the gun is completely pointless. there a million other ways to kill yourself and/or the girl, the dog, or barry bonds

-if the girl is willing to have sex with you, she is able if not willing to get pregnant as well. you may be able to convince her to start a family in your basement empire. the same holds for barry bonds for the women.

-the library with every book ever published presumably also contains all works that are lost or otherwise no longer extant, which is both an incredible boon to scholarship and global culture, as well as a means of making obscene amounts of money.

-the library should be picked by anyone with an adventurous mindset or a proclivity toward cabin fever, even if they are entirely illiterate. a library which contains every work ever published would be an impossibly colossal structure. it is likely you would not even be able to explore it fully in the ten years given to you. the downside of this is the inability to even obtain certain books without tremendous or even potentially impossible effort, which cuts into the value of the library in some sense. there may, however, be extraordinary automated book delivery systems in place. or the library may be magical. and really, who the **** wouldn't want a magical library?

-the workshop could allow you to construct a number of the other options, including the pool table, the model train, and large portions of the workout room. this only holds if you are talented, of course, and while ten years is a lot of time it is not an eternity. the library would also come with innumerable books aiding you in your attempts to become a skilled blacksmith/carpenter/whatever, as well as the plans for anything ever made for which plans were made public. along similar lines, the library also doubles the kitchen recipe list, provides all written info on gardening and cultivation, and houses extraordinary technical information regarding all of the mechanical or digital objects on this list, which may be used to extend or enhance their functionality.

-the internet, the library, and the all movies/shows options also provide endless amounts of pornography.

-coupling the money up front with the internet would allow you to purchase anything which is sold online, provided you could have it delivered to your basement empire. coupling the internet with any of the other money making options on this list could have the same effect. one of the benefits of these possibilities is increased human interaction. I'm sure we can all think of plenty of ways to turn money into various people arriving at our doorstep.

No not really, lets say you get a cell phone for 3 points and have your buddy take out a loan up front with the guarantee of $10 million in 10 years, which comes out to something like 10,000,000/(1.01: roughly libor)^10 = roughly $905,000. The fact is in this hypothetical there is very little risk to the bank since there is no chance that the money won't come out unless you die which will compare most favorably with other lending risks (since it clearly says ur forced into the basement for 10 years, so ur getting the money alive or dead).

Your buddy can be working with 800K to 900K upfront that he can then give to money manager that takes a cut to manage it for you all the while you bang out a hot piece of 18 year old ass.

Guys, its not that hard, you take sex, food, and medicine and you don't look back.

If you just want to take these hypotheticals to the very edge of logic, then you can get a gun and barry bonds, force him to transfer his money to you over the internet, then shoot him and use the internet to call for help from a private paramilitary group to break open the basement and not even have to do 10 years.

I'm thinking that once you, along with any companions, goes down into the basement that none will leave for 10 years. Any Dr visits would have to be done in the basement with little contact as possible. Since you are being forced in this situation, its safe to say that the interaction will be monitored.

Regarding the greenhouse, plants can grow thru man made light, so those of you expecting sunlight thru the greenhouse need to account for that.

Regarding other forms of interaction, there is none. You are shut off from the outside world unless you spend pts on that interaction (Girl/Bonds, computer, radio, etc). Your supplies will be lowered to you.

The universal law is just an excuse used by old guys who couldn't get the young girl cause their game can't make up for the age difference and there's not enough money to make it irrelevant.

That is because you didn't have sex with an 18 year old when you had the chance. I throw this post out to the fact you are just too different to comment on the essentials of that fine ass and those who experienced it and will never have the immature attitude of an 18 year old cutie get in the way of those memories.

Look at some point in ur life that drive just isn't as hard (pun intended) as it used to be. But until a man hits that point, you can't get much better than a tight little 18 year old.

Some guy said something about experience but it all depends on the girl. There are some girls in their early 30's with less experience than some 20 year old sex-kittens.

I guarantee you those top 19 year old model/actresses have sucked a lot of jewish dick to get there, they know what they're doing; Scarlett johansson included.
