How to Survive on a Deserted Island?

Answer

The best way to survive on a deserted island is to first of all, find something that you can use as shelter. That is the most important thing to protect you from the elements. You then need to find a few loose rocks to make a spear with a tree branch in order to hunt for fish, or whatever animals are out there. Find some coconut trees if there any, and throw rocks up at them in order to bring them down if you cannot climb trees. Then get some more wood, and make an SOS sign on the beach, or if you can't find enough wood, draw it deep in the sand with a pointed stick, you could always use your spear at this point. Then you need fire, and water ideally. If you wear glasses, find the point when the sun is highest, find a hot rock and set yourself up a small wigwam of dry leaves and twigs, put your glasses to where the sun can penetrate through.. and get a fire started. If you don't own glasses, you need to cause enough friction between the wood and the dry leaves in order to make it smoke, then blow at the bottom of it making it flame. Then you just have to catch something, eat it, rinse and repeat until you get rescued.
