I think the desert is crueler than the sea. At least the sea can take you quickly if you are tired of putting up a fight. In the desert, it would be a slow, painful death.

I agree that the sea could end you faster than the desert making for a slow death which could be more painful.

To tell you the truth, I wouldn't like to be alone without food in any of them. A desert can undergo extreme temperatures from hot to cold, and the sea is worthy of fearing when a storm hits. I prefer to visit them and admire their beauty in good conditions. :D

I think I agree that the sea is probably more forgiving, in that you can die much quicker,
but if you're inventive, you may even be able to round of some food from the sea. You may have to eat it raw,
but it'd be better than the alternative.

Both are dangerous if the becomes out of control .But if you have all tools with yourself ,you can better explore new worlds with these parts.I personally thing sea as being more more dangerous .b/c in desert you can for help.But sea doesn't provide you this opportunity for long if you are caught in some dangerous situation.

I really dislike heat, so I'd take the sea over desert any time of the day.

Personally, I would choose sea over the desert. That way the end would be simpler and faster.

I prefer Sea because of Sea food. In the oceans you are likely to get food unlike the desert where it's hot and no food but of course both of them have a disadvantage

Both are unforgiving when the chips are down. The sea is faster than desert. I think sea is better. It happens very quickly.

I agree. It is scary to even think about for me. I don't want to get caught in either situation throughout my life!!

I think that the sea is deadlier. There are many possibilities of dying and less chance of being found.

Water, water, everywhere but not a drop to drink. That about sums it up, I think.
