Nothing about it was notably good nor bad, and I can’t imagine ever wanting to see it again.
As such, for a tax-free $20,000,000, would you do the following:
* For one calendar year, you will be locked in a heated/air-conditioned one-room studio apartment (with windows), furnished with whatever furniture you want, including any exercise equipment.
* Colin Farrell’s Total Recall will be playing on an 80-inch TV for 15 hours per day.
* You’ll be allowed 1 hour/day to exercise/shower.
* The other 8 hours is allocated for sleep, and while the lights will be off, Total Recall will still be playing on mute.
* Your diet will consist of nothing but Honey Peanut flavor Balance Bars and bottled water. You get as much of both as you want.
* You can go outside for 1 hour/week OR 10 minutes per day. You choose this at the beginning of your excursion and cannot change it once you’ve started.
* Call Me, Maybe will also be playing on a loop from an upside-down boom box in the apartment. The volume will be slightly louder than the volume of the movie. This will also be muted during your 8-hour sleep period.
* You’re permitted to make 1 10-minute phone call per day to someone you don’t know and have never talked to before.
* You’ll pick this person and solicit their call on Twitter, which you will have access to. However, you cannot visit outside links, and you can only Tweet about 2012′s Total Recall, unless you’re Tweeting about finding your phone call recipient.
* Once per week – at a time of your choosing, you may watch the original Total Recall.
* Every other day, an emotionless person pretending to be a robot will deliver a delicious four-course meal consisting of your favorite foods to your apartment, where it will remain for one hour. If you eat any of it, you lose all your money. At the end of the hour, you have to throw the meal out the window.
* You’ll be informed of any family emergencies, and will have the option to end your experiment at any time.
Would you try to do this, and why or why not, and if so, what would be the hardest part about it.
