I really do think that this is a winnable bet and i am looking forward to seeing how it plays out. I am not saying it would be easy but i think that i could do this and would be surprised if he doesn't win his bet

I personally think it is not super hard bet in win because you have food and can wash yourself and it is just very many hours ofsleeping and thinking about your life goals and how to spend 100.000 you win in bet. you can say it is meditation holiday, people who not see they spend all life In dark so not very gig problem.

Disagre with you guys thinking it's an easy bet. Just take inot consideration isolation is one of the worst punishement given in jail and there are laws proposal who want to abolish it because it is considered at the same way as torture.
As to me, well, I find hard spending more than a day at home without going out for a bit ...and consider ilive with other people and have all the conforts I like at home.
I wouldn'taccept a similar bet....maybe for a Million I would consider it

Me working within the prison system and have been deployed at the highest security prison here in Sweden know what solitary confinement can do to a person. But I also know that laws against using this type of "punishment" would only make things worse. Some people we have in our prison must be kept away from other people for both their own and others well being.
In any case, I think it would be possible to complete as we have had people in solitary confinement for like 5 months (longest I've witnessed myself) and he was more or less like he was when he got there. But we make sure lights are on during the day and off at might, and they have a small window that can't be opened. They're also allowed up to 1 hour outdoors to smoke or whatever every day. And food is brought 3 times a day by staff that they can talk to.
Now, with solitary confinement looking like that and it still breaks down about 90% of the people in there, imagine what this bet could do to a person. I think it would need a really specific set of skills and mental strenght to make it through this intact.

I had no idea that the bet had already started and that it was going on for that long. He is half way through the bet, lasted long, but that doesnt mean he can make it to the end. Not an easy task to accomplish. And according to erru most prisoners are breaking with even the light being turned on. Imagine with no light at all.

If he managed to stay there 16 days, then today it's been almost three weeks without 1-2 days. If he wins this bet after a month, i hope the tax does not charge him. 50% percents taxes is too much for this ,,prison'', without light. The player who lose this bet, it will be sad for a while. We will see this in 9 days or more.

Do you happen to live in your parents basement without them knowing about it, only coming out during the night or when they are not at home? You couldn't switch on the lights or make noise, ate too much from the fridge etc. because they would know you are there... If the answer is not then you are not living like that IMO
