much to your chagrin. However, all hope is not lost. Reconnoitering, you find:

- 6 rolls of duct tape
- One, reasonably sharp, double edged, 10 inch knife
- 20 feet of good quality rope
- 100 square foot roll of clear, 4 mil plastic
- 2 gallons of drinkable water
- A pocket mirror
- A porno mag

There are plenty of trees and plants, fruit and nuts. A kind of rodent inhabits the island, about the size of a house cat.

How do you get off the island?

First, by trying to stay alive. Build a shelter, start a fire, try to hunt and gather fish, animals fruits etc. Search for drinking water

I decided to stay on the island. Got everything I need. Just chill all day and collect food. Build a structure for collecting rainwater

(OR:)

Pick some safe berries or fruits/nuts, gather some coconuts, basically retrieve whatever safe food you can from the nature.

Gather tinder (or just use the porno mag) and logs, start a fire with the pocket mirror. If I learned anything from Lord of the Flies, fire is the best way to attract attention from ships and get off the island.

Whenever you need water, just fill the container your original 2 litres was in with water from a stream and boil it to kill bacteria.

Also hunt some rodents and use the fire to cook them.

Build a shelter from sticks and leaves, or find a dry and empty cave.

Day 2, build a fishing trap by making a one way trap where fish can swim in but not out (in a spot with lots of fish). Gather enough fish for the journey.

Build a raft from sticks, plastic wrap, rope and duct tape.

The real dilemma is how to store water for the trip, I guess you could use coconut shells? Maybe make bowls from leaves and duct tape, idk.

Make sure your raft has lifted sides and isn’t flat, so that your supplies will stay in the boat if it sways.

Load your raft with fruits and berries/nuts, hunt some more rodents and fish and cook them and then load them onto the raft as well.

Find a suitable stick, use duct tape to turn it into an oar.

Set off into the ocean with enough supplies and hope you hit land!

Fair enough. *thinks to myself* "Bingo! To get off the island I jus need to.... Get off the island."

*Swims 10 metres away from the island* Now I'm not on the island... So I got off the island! This is genious, mission accomplished!

There is a legitimate answer. Look closely at the items. One of them is not like the others.

Make a water filter, now you have some water, get food from the resources around the island, chop some trees down with a knife, or an axe if I get the stuff to make one, make a raft and (maybe) a sail and sail off the island!

berdan131, if anyone were to answer correctly, it would be you.

It's a disinformation riddle. Often people get caught up in the wording. That's the trap. The idea is to ignore the riddle and answer the question.

berdan131 took the "thinkin outside the box" approach and won his freedom.

However, there is one item on the list that would help you get off the island. Someone almost had it, but not quite.

Clue: Why would I mention a porno magazine, when I could have simply stated, a magazine?
What about the porno mag gets you off the island?
