...and here is the format:
You're to be locked in a room for 6 months.
You have will have your three meals a day supplied and a jug of fresh cold water whenever you request it. Once a week you can have a large bottle of the beverage of your choice. Three times a week you can have a large serve of the snack of your choice.
The room has absolutely no way of being escaped from.
You have a small ensuite bathroom with a shower and a toilet.
The room has a very comfortable bed and an excellent entertainment system.
There is both natural and artificial light at your discretion.
There is equipment to work out.
If there is something additional you need that isn't 'entertainment', it would most likely be allowed.

In other words, you will be comfortable in this room.

Into this room you can take ten specific items-
They can be video games, books, movies, documentaries or music albums.
The format of the video game is irrelevant; you will be supplied with a console required to play it without it counting against your ten items. If you select a PC game, you will be supplied with a PC that has no other function except playing that game. I will allow all expansion packs and official DLC to be included within the single item.

The book must be a single volume. You, for example, cannot select the entire diskworld collection as a single item. However, I will allow 'boxed collections'. That would mean, for example, you could take the entire Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings series in as a single item.

The movies, like the books must be a single volume. You, for example, cannot select the entire Doctor Who collection as a single item. However, I will allow box sets of a single season of a show or movie collection, like the five Die Hard movies.

The albums, like the books and movies, must be a single volume. Collections are also acceptable, within reason (like the Beethoven 5-disk collection or whatever), so long as they are available in one package.

I'll think about this and post my own.

There is no internet. I should have specifically said that but I thought it was obvious.

They can be video games, books, movies, documentaries or music albums.

So I can only take these items (entertainment sources)?

I'm pretty sure based off non-entertainment devices being given that the answer is yes, but I want to be sure.

Dude, there's not much one can honestly do legitimately when trapped in a room. I mean, if they want a little romance I'm cool with that, but what do you honestly expect? No Internet, trapped in a room, hows a person supposed to fulfill the physical needs? Cause sometimes porn just doesnt work brah

I think you guys are missing the point, so just to make this a bit clearer...

As reward for participating in this experiment, you will receive ten million dollars.

If anything breaks, it will be replaced.

I don't know what kind of non-entertainment equipment you're talking about.

You can't just add things that aren't part of the list of things I included. No laptops for writing, no video camera, no piano. Weigh lifting set is ok.

The POINT of this exercise is to narrow down to the fewest number of things the most amount of time killing potential.

Here is my preliminary list:
GAMES
-Starcraft 2 (with HotS)(thinking with the campaign, difficulty levels, playing AI and achievements this could easily kill several weeks)
-Minecraft (so much time killing potential)
-NBA2K13 (just for something different, but lots of potential)

BOOKS
Anatomy: Grays Anatomy for Students 2nd Edition (very interesting and dense)
History of Western Philosophy (very interesting and dense)
The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire [Complete] (very interesting and dense)
The Complete Far Side
The Complete Calvin and Hobbes
Dilbert 2.0

MUSIC
The Top 100 Masterpieces Of Classical Music Vol. 1-5 [Box Set]

I think I'll just go with my original request than.

1. A Song of Ice and Fire boxed set
2. My own personal work desk
3. My computer I use at work (With 3 monitors)
4. Dexter seasons 1-6 boxed set.
5. Wires
6. Circuit board materials (in a box, 6 months worth of supplies)
7. Metal plating(6 months worth)
8. Hells Kitchen with Gordon Ramsay complete series.
9. The equipment I use at work (in a toolbox)
10.Doctor who, the complete series (from new to old, yes they sell a boxed set of that)

I could be entertained by watching Gordon yelling at randoms, read my favorite series, watch my two favorite series', have my awesome work computer, and do my work in the room so I don't miss out on not getting payed.
I can manage my anger if people can manage their stupidity.
