    MarleyZ is stranded on an island covered in forest.

    One day, when the wind is blowing from the west, lightning strikes the west end of the island and sets fire to the forest. The fire is very violent, burning everything in its path, and without intervention the fire will burn the whole island, killing MarleyZ in the process.

    There are cliffs around the island, so she cannot jump off.

    How can MarleyZ survive the fire? (There are no buckets or any other means to put out the fire)

    HELP ME!!

    That's what tombstoning is. Jumping off a massive cliff. Rather die that way than burn to death..you might make it

    I have no time to get up the massive cliffs before the fire gets to me, it's half way here already!

    She is too pretty to be killed :cry2: :cry:

    I can't see a way out of this

    Maybe at the east end, try to make a cave on the inside of a cliff just under the edge and hide in there?

    clearly some intervention is needed as without intervention you die


    and she cannot leave the island


    i think she could use her flare and hope a helicopter rescues her.

    Yes!!! Or if no hatchet or chainsaw is available, take a burning log further up towards the east and burn a little area over there

    If there are cliffs all around the island, then surely MarZ would've had to have scaled them in order to reach the plateau, no? So just climb back down again. Unless she's a terrible climber and is still stuck in the water for fear of falling to her death, in which case she should be more scared of contracting hypothermia than the fire


    Edit: you can't say that you were born there after posing the question! Moving the goalposts much
