    I have taken into consideration some complaints from the last thread, mostly about the reward not being good enough. This time there will be a flat cash reward for all three options like before but there will also be a reward unique to each option. The length of the challenge will also be reduced from 10 years to 6 years. As before, the food is provided to you free of charge which means you'll be saving a ton of money. Your entire diet must come from one of these choices for the entire 6 years and you must consume at least 2000 calories a day. You may drink whatever you want, this is only concerning food. $150,000 cash reward for each after the 6 years are up. Here are the options:

    #1. Long John Silvers

    You may order anything from Long John Silvers. The bonus reward is an all expenses paid 30 day vacation to a destination of your choice. Accommodations, airfare, and food will be paid for.

    #2. Pork Lo Mein
    [​IMG]
    You may only eat Pork Lo Mein for 6 years. Bonus reward is that you can legally murder one person (other than me) when the 6 years are up. It's not a guarantee that this person will die, but rather that there won't be any legal consequences for killing them.

    #3. Dumpster dinner
    [​IMG]
    You may only eat things you find in trash. Anything is fair game, as long as you find it in a trash can or dumpster. Bonus reward is that you and one person of your choosing will be exempt from any and all taxes for the remainder of your lives.

    #1 is the clear choice. It has more variety than #2 and it's obvious way better than the 3rd option. The reward for #1 is far better than the #2 reward and being tax-free is no where near enough to convince me to eat garbage for years.

    I think I die of scurvy before the challenge ends.

    Pork lo mein. Long John Silver's is awful. I would pick the dumpster dinner over that.

    If you only ate Long John Silvers for 6 years you would most likely being spending your cash prize on a triple heart bypass and cholesterol medicine.

    You somehow think eating nothing but greasy pork lo mein or straight up garbage for years won't give you health problems lol

    1. Well of you don't want to be very unhealthy this will be your main meal for 6 years from LJS without the hush puppies.

    2. Extremely unhealthy.

    3. I saw a show about food waste on food network about people going to different grocery stores and taking food out of their dumpsters at night after closing. Bags of fruits, vegetables, bread, eggs and whatnot that still looked(and is) perfectly fine but was now past the sell by date. I wouldn't want to do that but based on what I saw on that show it could potentially be the best option.

    It has by far the best reward and you may be able to find some produce that's not in too rough of shape.

    That's interesting and is within the rules as long as they are not directly giving you unwanted food. It must be taken from the dumpster. You could potentially just make homemade meals from the discarded ingredients and it wouldn't be that bad.

    One homeless dude in my area found a twelve pack of beer and offered me some.

    Damn, he hit the hobo lottery and offered you a cut. That's mighty generous.

    I would reconsider #3 if all the decent/good food were floating above the rim

    Looked for it and found a lot of examples like this immediately I stopped looking for the FN one. So this would depend on where you live but there were a bunch of videos just like this.
