    I'm not sure how many people have seen this experiment before, but it's pretty creepy.

    I remember doing this many years back out 1st day in philosophy class. Except the professor had us
    rip out a piece of paper, no names, we simply had to write "yes" or "no". The end result was something
    like 26 yes's and 0 no's. Then he passed the stack of papers around for everyone to verify.

    And he made a joke about not feeling safe around us cause his last class had 2 no's.

    People may be primed to lie in a public setting. But lets see what happens...

    Here's the deal.

    I have $1,000,000,000 I don't need. But I need someone dead. You will NOT be caught. The person you kill
    you will never know. They live on the other side of the planet. You will never know a thing about them.
    Whether they were an upstanding citizen, child molester or serial rapist. You won't even know if they really
    died.

    But I'm going to give you a black remote control with a small red button.

    When you press that button, that person will die, and you will get the $1,000,000,000 cash.

    How many of you are pressing that button? -_-

    For $1,000,000,000 cash, I am pretty sure everybody would press that button.
    The really sad thing is that there would be people willing to press it for $1000.

    yes, because it would take me 27,398 years to get the same amount just by pressing the $100 Jr VIP button once daily

    110 out of 100 people would do it too

    Not very smart to leave a review that you pressed a button to kill someone.

    Imagine how many lives you could save with that sort of money, or even how many lives you could make worth living. One person is a small price to pay for potentially saving thousands of lives.

    Plus, I'd press it for a pack of winny blues and a slab ox XXXX.

    To all those people that said they wouldn't press the button, here is the twist:

    Same as before $1,000,000,000 cash if you press the button and somebody will die, but this time they are given the same offer.
    If neither of you press the button then you both live but receive no money?
    Do you feel confident that a random stranger will not press the button for $1,000,000,000 cash?
    Are you willing to sacrifice yourself for your trust in human nature?

    One of those questions that is impossible to answer unless I'm right there just about to do it. I'm guessing that 26 number would fall quite a bit.
