A person is a great persuader and has taken up a cause you agree with and you think does great good in the world. However, you secretly find out that they don't live up to their espoused ideal, and are in fact the worst offender of all. You're worried that if you reveal this, people will listen to the person less and the cause will be hurt as a result. Do you Blow the whistle or Look the other way 5 years ago 92 votes 3 comments 0 likes

Your romantic partner, who you consider your soulmate, wants to break up with you. Would you take 10 years off the end of their life if it guaranteed that they'd want to be with you for life and it was the only way to stop the breakup (they would never find out and your memory of doing this would be erased afterwards)? Feed 10 years to the time demons or Unbearable heartbreak 5 years ago 849 votes 12 comments 0 likes

doesn't have to be given to 18 year olds per se, but if something like this is not done, the actual cause of unfair inequality in society will be allowed to continue unchecked, and the left/right political arguments will continue fruitlessly, ignoring the real problem 5 years ago  
the logistics are difficult but nevertheless, this needs to happen! 5 years ago +2
There is decreasing marginal happiness value with every extra dollar you have. Also, losing everything would likely cripple your opportunity to make more money, depending on your situation. Lastly, if I had over a certain amount of money, I wouldn't accept such a proposition no matter what the odds were. Currently I'd likely accept somewhere around 8-10 to 1 as a minimum. For half my money, though, i'd do this in a heartbeat 5 years ago  
Being dumb and anything is an automatic fail since you can't experience the full extent of life 5 years ago  
Sleep is for the weak and studying is something you know I'm lax about :| 5 years ago  
I've been murdering kittens and stuff, what else 5 years ago +1
Tell him the cell phone is God and he must obey its every command, then give it to him and call him with funny instructions. 5 years ago +4
A = for eternity B = forgotten in a week. hmmm.... 5 years ago +3
My first comment was a joke... anyway i can't believe the poll is so skewed towards B - more people are dead, and depending on your stage in life, your life with be much harder as an orphan. I suppose the question didn't specify whether you'd be caught for your mom's murder or not, if so then the number of ruined lives would be equal at 2-2 and the additional suffering of your imprisonment would push the scale towards choosing B... but if not then imo A is definitely the right answer here 5 years ago +3
Btw i'm the person behind Tiansa's 2 questions about the intelligence curve and the brain-damaged prisoner ;) 5 years ago +1
It seems like the verdict is in on this lol, I myself picked B because picking A would eventually result in one (or more probably multiple) convergences of the perception of the pinnacle of intelligence personified in a couple of people. These people's opinions could not be questioned under this system, so even if they were right about most things, there would be no self-correcting mechanism like individualism to correct 'mistakes' which would then unleash their full negative capacity upon the world. However, there are positive consequences too, which is why i thought this question was interesting eg. i'm pretty sure racism would be wiped out if everyone chose A. 5 years ago +1
Car crashes are funny but murder is awesome so i chose A 5 years ago +1
