    A psychopath worth $60 billion has 1 day left to live. He is dying of cancer. He has nobody to leave his money to. So, he places 5 bullets into a 6 chamber revolver. He then spins the cylinder and tells 5 people that if they put the barrel of the gun in to their mouth and pull the trigger, and they are lucky enough that the chamber is empty, and survive, then they will receive the pscho's entire $60 billion fortune. None of the 5 are under any obligation to play the game and can refuse to take part (if nobody wins, then the money goes to the psycho's pet canary). Nobody is allowed to spin the cylinder again. The first four take their chance and blow themselves away. You are the fifth person. You know that you have a 50/50 chance of winning the $60 billion. It's death or glory. Do you take a bang or not?

    Should we revert to the simple "This or That" format for the next thread, for old time's sake?

    Nay.

    Suitable legal penalty for shouting obscenities at fat pedestrians from the safety of one's car:

    exile
    imprisonment
    reeducation
    an all-Arby's diet
    no penalty - calling out to the human whales is fun! :cheer:*
    purple equanimity

    * We'll meet again in the underworld. I'll be the Annie Wilkes/Bee Taylor hybrid making a beeline in your perfidious direction.
