The buttonSubmitted by Vik on Fri, 11/08/2013 - 08:33
I have been thinking about a scenario I don't remember if I came up with it myself or if I got the original idea from here somewhere. Anyway I like the scenario it, it kind of describes the current financial system and corruption.
If you would get 50 000 dollars for pressing a button, but doing so you know it will be taken from 10 persons you don't know and they would have no way of finding out that you were responsible.
If you press it twice you would get 200 000 dollars but it would end with one person you don't know injuring himself with a permanent damage again no one but you would know that you were the cause.
If you press it three times you 4 000 000 dollars but it would end with one person you don't know dying and as before you will not be held responsible for the action even if you were the cause.
Every time you press it after 3 you get only 90% of the money gained on on the last press but with all 3 consequences, no one knowing you were the cause.
There is one last option, you can destroy the button so that no one else may be able to use it, but it will cost you all the money and possessions you currently own.
Not pushing the button is also a choice
When you are done with your choice you can either choose to give a friend else it will go to another random person.
So how many times would you press it and who would the friend be? :P
