    Prison for life: get fed every day, allowed to shower everyday, can study/do activities, will have interactions with other humans, medical treatment.

    Desert island for life: alone, have to fend for yourself (in this scenario there is enough plants/animals to survive), have to make your own shelter, no medical treatment.

    I would go for the desert island. I think I would just get bored of prison for life. At least you could be sort-of free on a desert island, plus there is the chance for freedom if a ship comes by.

    Prison is awful

    You don't get sushi there, unless you count ****, and the beds are REALLY small. Plus you don't get to choose your tv shows

    I thought the idea of being on a dessert island quite cool. But maybe not for live and not alone the whole time. And I wouldn't want to kill animals.

    But I may still be leaning toward there im not sure. Im gonna think about it and let you know.

    Depends on the prison. I'd be quite happy in one of the low security open prisons, but I'd rather die than live a life in the middle eastern lot. See: Tadmur.

    Prison.
    I'd go crazy if I was alone forever.


    BTW, according to your scenario, even if a ship comes by, you'd have to stay on the island so..
