If you're alone there is nobody to fight off lol
Good thinking. I would have picked matches since it can be used for survival and a weapon. Making fire on your own could be difficult
Making a sterile bandage, however, would be basically impossible.
Additionally the things you need for survival are ordered this way: air, shelter, water, food (Fire is a part of shelter, water, and food but doesn’t really stand alone) That’s in order of import. A medkit should be prioritized because if you’re bleeding out, your body is being deprived of oxygen, putting bandages and tourniquets squarely in the air category.
And I know it doesn’t sound right but... Shelter comes before water because you will die of hypothermia faster than you’ll die of dehydration. So you have to put shelter before water.
All very true but matches are the only thing on the list that is multi use.
A Swiss Army knife is multi use and it’d be very helpful, yet I’d still rather have the medkit.
There wouldn't be any need for either considering your alone
If I’m alone and I have no need of a weapon, then how the fuck am I in danger?
Lost in the woods. About to drown. Having a heart attack.
You could be hurt or trapped on a island alone. Only way a weapon would be useful is for hunting and even then if you're completely alone then there's no animals anyways
Then you need to freaking specify the issue. One cannot properly choose an item if one doesn’t know what’s going on. Leaving it open ended, then shutting off people’s choices, makes no damn sense.
You are free to pick whichever you want. There is no wrong answers to this. Its just to prove a point that people are more worried about someone or something harming them so they pick a weapon to defend instead of helping themselves.
Yet you told me there wouldn’t be a need for a weapon, as I’m totally alone. So clearly there is a right and wrong answer, otherwise you wouldn’t have a need to correct me. Try to structure your social experiment a bit better next time.
I acutally got this from another source lol
Do better next time, because this is a shit post.
