you have been lost in a desert for 2 hours in totally unknown lands for some reason as if the situation itself is alien beyond how you know to survive from your time in nature, and walking around you just realize the place is bigger and bigger, and whenver you get to see from the top of a hill there are just more canyons and sand, its all dry and the sun is hot, you are carrying a bag of gold with alot of weight, and there is alot of money in that gold, you have 1 bottle of water left, so, do you leave the gold, take some of it and save burry the rest, or keep on carrying the full bag of gold, to save water and survive better survive

you have only 3 choices, by weight carried in gold, non some or all

(which answer is the right one?)

post your personal reply in the comment for fun!

I would keep on carrying that bag full of gold and I would still have that water bottle. I will be walking in a normal pace and taking gaps in between the walk. I am pretty sure someone would eventually find me because it's a desert and some natives would help me. This is my answer your turn. :)

natives wouldnt steal your gold?

Who said I will tell them I got a bag full of gold?? Lol you have taken a wrong ideology here. I never mentioned that I will tell them that I have a bag full of gold.. I just said that if they wanted something in return I would give them few of it. Furthermore, the bag is always with me so there is minimum chances of stealing it. Another reason of it is that since I would be a foreign in that land the natives would be in there best behaviour because they come from this traditional thinking that you should always be nice, humble and respectful to someone. For example if you take India and your a tourist there, they will never show any negative behaviour and would show good behavior that is acceptable by all . So the same thing goes with the natives of that desert

I'll take the risk thank you very much because 1. I always keep my Swiss knife and life straw and 2. I also have an emergency pin that calls for help automatically. I'd rather survive happy.

thats alot of gold you have to carry, and only one bottle of water

Then I'd take enough gold to buy me a helicopter then fly back to where I left the rest of the gold when I come back.

Btw, I knew you weren't 100% dumb.

im talking about a car in the desert without knowing where you are, the car breaks you now have to choose do you leave it or take it with you, you have only 1 water bottle, and you have no idea which country you are in and so no sense of direction

If you were in a car you could hide the gold in it and come back for it.

But if youre somehow in the middle of a desert with a bag of gold and a water bottle.. I would leave the gold and take the water, unless you wanted to die or you were just plain stupid. I sure am not going to die over money.. Yet you can't go anywhere with money dead can you.
