a man appears in front of you he gives you a option walk away from him or listen to his proposition you listen he ask you if you would push a button that would kill one random person in the world for 10 million dollars you are incredibly poor if you choose to leave you will never have this chance again and will be poor for the rest of your life...

no one would ever find out except you and the mysterious guy there are no repercussions for doing said act other then receiving the money and the man/woman/child dying.

also you sign a legal agreement stating you would never use the money to save the life of another person you canhelp people but not save another person

which do you choose yes or no

also not to put anyones pants in a bunch this is from 2 movies and a book and a tv show asking this question but lets say there was no twist you would be able to walk away free and 10 million dollars richer

Even though this is pretty much the storyline of some movie I remember..

Yes, I don't care about the other person and I'd be set for the rest of my life.

#5 Posted by Patatopan (1890 posts) -

Nope, sorry. By the way, how are you so sure that random person doesn't include you?

#6 Posted by stepnkev (1511 posts) -

I would not press the button for any amount of money.

#7 Posted by JigglyWiggly_ (23551 posts) -

Hell no. You can't just kill someone for your own gain.

#8 Posted by Ace_WondersX (4455 posts) -

plagarism, you need to state you got this from a story.

I hope i kill a japanese person who is in control of all the Japanese tv that comes to the US!

I would rather be homeless for the rest of my life than take somebody's life. No money is worth that.

#14 Posted by Colin1192 (6221 posts) -

Would this random person include myself. And what coloris this magical button. Is it red which usually means danger or is it blue or green

#15 Posted by dann14v (689 posts) -

Video version of question.

#16 Posted by cluelesspug (3396 posts) -

It depends whether or not I got to select the random person.

Just for the record, that was a joke. No matter how much I hate someone, I would never wish them dead. Especially if I didn't even know them.

#28 Posted by D3nnyCrane (11986 posts) -
Of course I wouldn't push the button, IM OUTTA MY ELEMENT!
#30 Posted by Bruin4ev3r1520 (8843 posts) -
With my luck, I'd end up being the one that dies.

[QUOTE="-Chimera-"][QUOTE="D3nnyCrane"]Of course I wouldn't push the button, IM OUTTA MY ELEMENT!

 Mark it ZERO, DUDE!

 OK I marked it zero, are you happy, you crazy ****?
#34 Posted by Brainkiller05 (28954 posts) -
I'd punch him and take the money
#35 Posted by chrisrooR (9027 posts) -
No, I would not press the button. Morally speaking, I would consciously know that every cent of that money arose from the death of a human. Additionally, although the chances are slim, it is possible that someone in your immediate family becomes the victim.
#36 Posted by cee1gee (2042 posts) -
yes i would..cuz most likely with my luck itll be a person getting the death sentence lol
#37 Posted by tocool340 (20510 posts) -
So long as it isn't traced back to me, I'm down with it....
#38 Posted by MasterBolt360 (5293 posts) -

Ehh....maybe. I know its not right, but 10 million dollars?

#40 Posted by haggard_korn (3662 posts) -

Put a one and two zeros in front of that and you got a deal. :)

#44 Posted by TM_Darkside (3993 posts) -

I wouldn't kill a person that I had no prior experience with for any sum of money.

#45 Posted by Teh_Ducky (128 posts) -

#46 Posted by cpo335 (5463 posts) -

Press the button, then use the 10 million dollars to buy 10 million other dollars, then use 5 million of the new dollars to fund medical research. Viola, 5 million dollars and a clean conscience.
