if you are a good swimmer and are left in teh middle of teh ocean..what are your chances of surviving???????..
You’re not going to survive. No human has enough energy to swim to the nearest landmark from the middle of the ocean nor can they withstand the natural and ongoing current of the ocean. They’ll die and drown undoubtedly.
One of the biggest problem is water itself. U can't drink it.
Next one will be sun as it will pretty soon dehydrate our body.
And lastly there are all sort of creatures who are prolly toying with you to see if u are edible or not.
So yea unless u are way too lucky that a ship spot u. Chances are zero in this sort of situation.
fine...me add a : a random tree trunk floating next to u...what r teh chances of surviving now....Zero Chances of survival on your own. It would take more than just good swimming to make it back to land~
redbold = ?????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????!!!!!!!!!!!??????????????...This is the one situation where i could conclusively argue that your religious orientation matters more than anything else.
Between sharks that can literally hear your heartbeat, rapist dolphins, all sorts of poisonous slimies, dive-bombing ocean vultures (gulls) and creatures so big you're like an insect to them, it doesn't matter how good you are at swimming. And even if you ignore those, there are the elements (whirlpools), the possible threat of mythological monsters (krakens) and your own psychosis to come at you.
On the other hand, a religious person would be calm (faith) so the sharks wouldn't hear much, spiritually balanced so the dolphins wouldn't go crazy on them, steadfast (they fast regularly) so time wouldn't be an enemy and persevering (religious mentality) through a strong conviction so they'd swim efficiently. And should the krakens wanna get cracking, some miracle benefits could allow them to even best those creatures in battle or get lucky and hitch a ride instead.
Otherwise, you would be in all kinds of all kinds of trouble.

Wait, OP didn't post a rule saying there isn't an island in the middle of the ocean . . .
So this is more of a psychology test than anything else, maybe.
