For $10 million, I would press a button that randomly killed this number of people in the world:

  1. No one.

    From time to time memes circulate that ask if you'd slap your best friend for 2 million dollars or kill a stranger for a trillion or whatever. I own a business so my version of that is wondering how much of a salary it would take for me to become an employee again. But, the big numbers are no brainers. Much more interesting is the minimum.

    Focus: What is the minimum amount you'd slap a close friend for? Kill a stranger? Retire for the rest of your life? Give up your business? Divorce your wife?

    I'd probably sell out and become an employee for 250k a year. I'll get to that point naturally eventually but the security of it now, while my daughter is a baby, is attractive and it's a big enough raise to compensate for having to deal with office politics and an actual boss.

    Do we get to pick which friend? If we do I'm with Juice. It's a freebie. I wouldn't kill a stranger. And retire? I'm in fear of growing roots if I ever did retire. I'd go fucking nuts too.

    I'd probably slap a friend for mid to high four figures. Give said friend a grand for their trouble and go do something with the rest.

    10 million seems reasonable for a retire now and never work again option.

    What, NONE of you have ever imagined killing a stranger huh? Im the only one? Right what ever.

    I don't think it would take too much to retire forever. Maybe just because Im live in the midwest where housing can be very reasonable I could see retiring on 50-100k a year. Given the average age males in my family live to I'd say I got 40 years are so left, so 4-5 million would probably do it for me as far as retiring.

    So how much to get you to kill a random stranger? You don't get to know anything about them, let's say.

    Do I get off scott free, ie, no interaction with the law what so ever? If im still facing arrest/jail it would be off the table. Do I get to choose the method? I don't think I could ever kill someone in an intimate way like stabbing or strangling. Poisoning or cutting break lines......we could start to talk price. I don't think I could kill someone randomly that I didnt know anything about I'd most likely want to to be some sort of Dexter like situation where the person needs killin'.

    You'll get away with it. You can do it from a distance, but I think it needs to be someone you don't know anything about. Could be a serial killer, could be a cancer-curing neuroscientists, you just don't know. Which probably raises the price, but I wager there is a price somewhere. The key is to figure out the minimum. So, you know you'll get a trillion dollars, consequence free (taxes, weird investigations, jail, etc), you'll probably do it. But for a billion? A million? Toytoy's baseball card collection?

    Man you guys either need to have more rage or less money. Many THOUSANDS of dollars to slap a friend? I would do that for like $20, they'll get over it in less than a minute. And killing someone with absolutely no consequence with a quick and easy shot from a distance? I don't know, like a thousand?

    I'd be curious to know how many people who are against the death penalty on principle would actually kill an innocent for a specified sum, or a MacBook Pro. Like, if you are pro death penalty, could you carry out the sentence yourself? If not, why would you be ok offing a rando?

    Are you asking me personally? Because I'm not against the death penalty and it wasn't specified as "an innocent." Also if someone ACTUALLY gave me a choice between fighting one horse sized duck or a hundred duck sized horses I would say "neither, please" and if someone asked me if they could pay me to kill someone for them I'd say "no thank you."

    No, it was a general question.

    I would rather fight 100 duck sized horses. You can kick those fuckers all over the place. A horse sized duck? What are you gonna do?

    The fucking desert. I hate the fucking desert.
    Directions
    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
    2. Rub salt, pepper, and paprika into the skin of the duck. Place in a roasting pan.
    3. Roast duck in preheated oven for 1 hour. Spoon 1/4 cup melted butter over bird, and continue cooking for 45 more minutes.
    Multiply all ingredients by approximately 1000. Multiply cooking time by something big too.

    I mean, either way, get your fucking camera out. But, also, why would you fight 100 duck-sized horses? Those would be the cutest things EVAR. Are they rabid?
