    This was a video shown at a philosiphy lecture that I was recently at, and I thought that it was really interesting.
    Watch the video funtil the 5 minute mark, then pause. Come back here and say if you would press it and why.
    Do not talk about the ending.
    Warning: This film contains a small amout of blood, light swearing, and is mildly frightening

    Wouldn't push the button. I see enough death at work that I would not want to be responsible for doing that to someone.

    I'm way too greedy for my own good at times, I'd probably press it, I'd feel guilty about it, and the guilt would probably drive me nuts after, but I think in the situation with someone egging me on like that, I'd push it. cool vid.
    No matter how much I learn or know I'm still gonna be a NOOB, but that doesn't mean I'm an idiot!

    This idea has been done several times in the past before, though they did put a different twist on it I suppose. Still a pretty cool video.

    it is just like the movie "The Box". TERRIBLE movie btw =P.
    i suggest steering clear of it =P.
    anyways, i would push it. mostly because i would be thinking i was being punked or something =P.

    *Spoiler! Don't read if you haven't watched the video yet.*

    I would more than likely push it, but only if it were truly random and doesn't have the twist at the end that all of these stories do. I believe the original story went something like this: mysterious guy shows up at door with button, tells main character he has 24 hours to push the button as many times as he likes which will kill one person he does not know and give him a million dollars, wife convinces him to push it just before the guy comes back, guy gives him a million dollars only to find out the next person to receive the button will be "someone that doesn't know him," meaning his fate rests in the next peoples' decisions and he killed the person before him.

    If it were truly random, I think I would do it and try to use that money to save at least one life. Like it said in the movie, people die all the time and for stupid reasons to boot, so I think if I can better my own life (and yes, I would still buy a few luxuries), along with saving another person's life that would not have been saved would it not be for my newly acquired wealth, I would be alright with the whole situation. Probably wouldn't know for sure, though, until it actually happened.

    I'd push it. Why? Because people die, its a just matter of when, and how. Besides we're an over populated species anyway. AND, if someone does push the damn thing, I might be the next person to die. I'd say the odds would be pretty good. If did go as to say it was someone I didn't know, then fo sho i'd do it!
