    You awake inside a small transparent capsule sitting on the surface of Venus. From a small speaker you hear a voice that says, "We will leave you here either for a day or a year. If you choose to stay a day, we will give you $1 million. If you choose to stay a year, we will give you $2 million. Either way, you will have sufficient food and water. We will make sure the temperature is a constant 70 degrees Fahrenheit. We will also supply cable TV."

    What is your choice? (Don't let money decide your answer).

    "Venus year" (Period to rotate Sun) is equal to 224.65 Earth days.
    "Venus day" (Period to rotate on axis) is equal to 243 Earth days.

    I'll stay the Year...
