I just found my old copy of "The Book of Questions". I'm gonna flip through and pick one at random. Anyone want to answer?

First question:
"You are leading 100 people whose lives are in danger and you must choose between two courses of action. One would save only 90 people; the other would have a 50 percent chance of saving everyone but were it to fail everyone would die. Which would you choose?"

"Your room...it's CLEAN!!!"
"I prayed to God...and...it happened...but...where's my million dollars and horse!? Damn it!"

It depends on who these people I might be saving were.

You see! We need these kinds of details before making that kind of decision.

My creativity only goes as far as typing up the question.

Take the 50-50% route. If there is success, take all the credit; if failure, blame the predecessor for everything and have them all curse his name as they perish.

I just noticed the time of posting is always in GMT or BST. It's 1 hour ahead here in Poland. Wonder about Chicago.

For some reason I remember a thread that was like this from when I first joined, but i could be imagining things.

I would choose the save 90 option. Then you are guaranteed most survive.




unless they were all daily mail staff, in which case I would run away giggling X-D
