    First aid kit? Your arm is injured, but what is the injury? It could be bruised, or any injury where the skin is not broken. Having the equipment to prevent infection and further injury is wise, but if your arm is so damaged that you are only able to carry one thing with your uninjured arm, chances are that you won’t be able to self-administer any of what you have in the first aid kit efficiently if at all. I’m thinking way too hard here! Mountain lions, bears, wolves etc, just how big is this first aid kit?!!

  2. Yay!

  3. That was way too easy. Obviously, it was the first aid kit. Only a fool would pick a candy bar.

  4. Use the trash bag to carry everything and use the first aid kit when you can.

    take the trash bag put everything in it but the first aid kit. then use the first aid kit to help your injured arm. use the matches to light a signal so that passing planes can see you and stay in the plane since it makes a good shelter.

    Why can’t you put all of the items in the trash bag?

  27. I picked the trash bag to put everything else in.

    Leaving the plane is a big mistake. Rescue crews will find the wreckage long before they will find you wandering around (probably lost and dehydrated).

    Stay with the plane and you have some shelter and all the items you couldn’t take with you.

  29. Trashbag, carry everything elsein it w good arm.

  30. 200 IQ got 5 points first try.

  31. I cheated I looked at the magazine before doing it online! haha #liarliarpantsonfire…

  37. Ha Ha 5 points first try

  38. I’d put everything in the trash bag and take it all with me. Just sayin’…

    Why not eat the candy bar, and put everything else in the trash bag?

  40. Not sure why four points for the garbage bag, as you could put all items into the garbage bag and carry with the uninjured arm. Therefore that should be 5 points. You need the flashlight to see, the candy bar for food, first aid kit shouldn’t have to explain, the matches to light a fire for warmth.

  41. I chose the trash bag and only got 4 points. But my thought was I could put ALL the things in the bag and still carry it with one hand.

    Apparently, putting everything into the trash bag isn’t an option???

  43. The best thing to do would be to stay with the plane. You’ve shelter, something big and unnatural for rescuers to spot, and all of the the aforementioned items. Plus, there might even be a G.P.S. locator or something to lead rescuers to the downed plane.

  44. 5 points first try!

    I got 5 points on the survival quiz

  47. I got 5 points! ☺

    • I disagree, I got 4 points because I picked trashbag, you can only carry 1 item, so by picking the trashbag, you can open it, put all of the other items in it, then you are still only carrying 1 item (the trashbag)
