Im only doing it because im bored. 🙂 lets say a package is left at your door. This package is from someone unknown. You open it, and its a box. Instructions say that if you press this red button on the box, it will open up to an instant 1 million, in cash. The catch is, if one presses it, the sender of the box is notified,and one random person dies. You have 24 hours to make your decision. If you dont press it, the box will disintegrate the money, and nothing happens. What would you do?

Leave it alone! I believe in karma..plus that random person could be one of your loved ones, and if not, then most likely someone’s loved one.

@vivalavida: WTF?!?!? If someone’s going to die/be hurt for your gain, not worth it, period! That karma catchs up to you!

Wasn’t there a movie with this concept a few years ago?

Could I jerry-rig it so that the person it kills is the person who put the box there? 😛
I hope I would not press it.

Umm leave it alone!! How could you live with yourself knowing that someone died because of your greed? A million dollars isn’t even that much money! Can you imagine someone close to you suddenly dying just because some random person in the world opened a box?! That movie was crazy.

Hmm. I doubt I’d open it. I’d probably be scared it was a bomb or something.

Oh, it’s a short story! That’s where I’ve heard this before. And yes, the original short story was made into a movie I believe. The wife dies or something tragic.
I’d leave the button alone.

Id throw it and maybe that would push the button. Id do it randomly, and see if fate chooses to let the button be pressed

based on the movie and for moral reasons, I wouldnt even touch the box lol

I’d be too scared that my FI or my mom would be the one to die. Or maybe even me. And then that money would be pointless.
