  • I would probably pick the desert if it's for 24 hours because you can do without water for about 3 days. You could simply try to cover yourself with your clothes and just sit or sleep to conserve energy and yes you might be really hot possibly sunburned but it wouldn't be to bad. 24 hours in below 0 though, that would be more tough unless you had appropriate attire and even then your likely to get frostbite somewhere and then you would lose a limb or digit or something.

  • Desert, I know it would be just miserable in that blistering sun, but I can hardly stand 20 degree weather!

  • Do I have any appropriate attire for the below zero weather? (A parka, anything?) Because I'd much rather be blistered and dehydrated than actually lose fingers/limbs from frostbite!

  • Freezing! IF this question does not involve being rescued than Im sure dying by freezing would be less painful and faster.

  • Neither, I have an auto-immune problem-both would kill me!

  • Well, either way I'd probably be dead after 24 hours but if I had to pick I'd say I'd rather freeze to death.

  • I would rather be stuck in a Desert for 24hrs.... I'm use to the Hot Flashes - Lol.... I've gained 7-10 pds so I could sweat it off.... And I could always drink the sweat from my tank top - which would be the ''Only'' down side, but hey I would be Delirious from heat stroke so What would I care!!!
