You've been shipwrecked! What do you do?
Don’t worry it’s fine; some aliens have left a transporter machine that will take you back home (or anywhere you like). There are also three boxes that you have opened and are as follows:
A Resurrection-Kit that will allow you to resurrect any single person from history to your current spot. You can ask this person up to five questions before they are transported back to their original time-zone with no knowledge of the event. They might be a little freaked out so go easy on them.
A Make-a-Wish 3000 which is a device that allows you to, well, make a wish. The device excludes wishing for more wishes and doesn’t grant you any special “powers” like X-ray vision or flight. And no, there’s no Robin William so you’re safe.
A mysterious thingimijig. You’re unsure of what this does because the instructions are hard to make out. You can decipher part of the text and think that it might possibly be a vaccine for all known human disease. It’s that or a bio-weapon created to reduce the intelligence of all current living people (future generations should be unaffected). Imagine George W. Bush times six billion. Or worse. Once you press the button (it’s big, red and shiny!) it will release it’s contents into the atmosphere and affect the entire population within one week.
You can only use one of these devices which are non-functional after the initial use. Afterwards the transporter becomes active and you are allowed to return home (you have to use one of them). Which do you use, what for and (if you feel like it) why?
Bonus Question: Do you use the transporter to go back home or elsewhere?...
