Hypothetical Question...

Hypothetically speaking - lets say you have an opportunity to win $1,000,000 in a contest. To win - you must choose from one of the following five options:

“Punch” option —- You will be punched in the face, just once, by a big fat man. The punch is guaranteed not to be fatal nor to cause brain damage, but you will likely sustain a nasty injury such as a split lip, black eye or perhaps even a broken nose. After being punched - you will be given the $1,000,000!

“Bomb” option —- Nothing will happen to you. However, you will start the countdown on a huge bomb that is hidden deep inside the center of the Earth. The bomb is large enough that, when detonated, it will cause devastating earth quakes and floods all over the planet. The bomb is completely undetectable and can not be disarmed. However it will not detonate until exactly 5,000 years in the future. As soon as the countdown has started - you will be given the $1,000,000!

“Insults” option —- Twenty people will shout terrible insults and obscenities at you for one full hour. These people will not come into physical contact with you nor harm you, but they will say all sorts of horrible and upsetting things to you. After one full hour of intense verbal abuse - you will be given the $1,000,000!

“Magic” option —- Your personality and ethical convictions will be painlessly altered in some unknown way by a magic spell. The alteration will be instantaneous and will not affect your memory, cause brain damage nor result in any physical harm of any kind. After the alteration - you will be given the $1,000,000!

“Nothing” option —- None of the above. Nothing happens to you or anyone else, but you will NOT be given any money.

Which option would you choose first? Second? Third? Etc…???

Please list them like so … (with “1” listed as your first choice, “2” as your next choice, and so on…)

1 - option name
2 - option name
3 - option name
4 - option name
5 - option name

1 insults - I do this everyday for a job so it wouldn't be anything new
2 Nothing - I don't need a million bucks that bad
3 Punch - this has happened enough times to me that one more wouldn't be so bad
(wouldn't really do the others even for a million bucks)
4 Magic - I can't stomach the though of having my mind changed without my doing
5 Bomb - You'd have to be truly heartless to cause suffering for your own benefit.
Don't be a stick in the mud traditionalist! Support global warming!

1. Bomb. Who gives a fuck? The world will have been destroyed 5000 years from now anyway.
2. Insults. Again, who gives a fuck? I've been insulted all my life. Hey, can I deck all 20 people afterwards?
3. Magic. If you can't tell it affects you, why not go ahead? Bad as I am, it could only be an improvement.
4. Punch. I get hit by my friends all the time. It's no big deal.
5. Nothing. What the hell? Why would anyone choose this option?
You call me evil? My son, there is no good or evil! There is only power, and those too weak to see it. I had hoped that you, Blood, would understand that, being the demon of Darkness!

1 - Insults. Why would it matter what they said when by the end of it you'd be rich?
2 - Punch. If it really messes up my face I'll have more than enough for reconstructive surgery.
3 - Bomb. I'm hoping they have advanced technology to deal with those problems by then.
4 - Nothing. I need the money, dammit!
5 - Magic. Way too much of a risk.
