You have a button in front of you. Every time you push the button, you get $10 million, but 10 random people around the world die (it can never be you but it can be anyone else.) Would you push it? How many times would you push the magic button?

>> No.49813805

I would spend a good day pushing it to be honest if not push it at least 100 times and never bother with money ever again. If it is ANYONE on the entire planet statistically the chance it's someone close to me is very low even if you pressed it 100 times. If it is someone close to me I doubt I wouldn't get over it. Yeah my wife or parents dying would suck but my parents would die anyway as they are quite old and I think I could forgive myself for losing my wife meaning it would net me a billion dollars. But then again, the chance they die is so small it's worth the risk. So killing 1000 people is okay with me. Not even edgy or a psycho or anything but more people die from driving per day than that. A billion dollars is a lot. If I would know the people would die, would give them a good sum of money too to their family like 100K or something

>> No.49813859

Yeah but 1000 people dying is a rounding error. 10000 and they will start looking for what happened. I don't want anyone to come looking for me or find out it was me. So 1000 is a reliable number to kill before people start asking questions
Makes me think about to explain the income though. I'll just assume that is sorted out in this scenario and the money is post-tax

>> No.49813860

It would be impossible to prove that those people actually die because of me so sure. I wouldn't even know if it works or not. Hell I could be pressing a button that kills 10 people randomly right now on my keyboard, how would I know

>> No.49813878

>10000 and they will start looking for what happened
No they won't be, not if it's completely random heart attacks around the globe. If the rate of heart attacks go up 1% globally that's not exactly a cause for a manhunt for a heart attack creating magician

One means the burden of 10 dead people weighs on me. That's too little a number and I'll fixate on who they were. I think maybe 1,000 is enough where they become a bit flurry and the individuals become just some dead group. Less personal that way.

So I'd take 1000 turns thanks.

Once at first, then alternate presses every now and then being VERY careful to avoid any kind of pattern. I suppose it will average to once a year or so. I don’t need all that much to be happy, fuck a superyacht.

After the first press there will be a long time before the next one though, got to create covers for where the income comes from, secure the button, etc.

>> No.49814222

So, there are about 20 people in the world that I care enough about right now, if I am being generous.

So, when I push the button, there is a 0.00000000257964658842% that someone that I care about die.
I guess that I am hitting it one million times, which will kill ten million schmucks, at a 0,26% chance that I kill someone that I care about.

No point in getting more, at ten trillion money really becomes irrelevant, and time becomes the most valuable asset.

It will take me something like 300 hours to push the button, so I guess that I am doing it for a month, 10 hours of pushing every day, rest of my time spent investing the money in advance to secure safety first.

I would be looking to move somewhere small like Uruguay and eventually just buy the country and lead it towards prosperity, would have enough money to privately fund welfare in exchange for compliance before I could just turn the country into a giant corporation with me as its owner, which should take eight years or so.

also I'd keep the button in handy and do the same thing in about a decade or two, if I'm still alive. If I die before then I would bequeath the button unto someone whom I'd know would do the same thing with it
I'd build my homestead out of money and use it to breed termites for my chickens, since it would be worthless at that point
