Hypothetically speaking - lets say you have an opportunity to win $1,000,000 in a contest. To win - you must choose from one of the following five options:
"Punch" option ---- You will be punched in the face, just once, by a big fat man. The punch is guaranteed not to be fatal nor to cause brain damage, but you will likely sustain a nasty injury such as a split lip, black eye or perhaps even a broken nose. After being punched - you will be given the $1,000,000!
"Bomb" option ---- Nothing will happen to you. However, you will start the countdown on a huge bomb that is hidden deep inside the center of the Earth. The bomb is large enough that, when detonated, it will cause devastating earth quakes and floods all over the planet. The bomb is completely undetectable and can not be disarmed. However it will not detonate until exactly 5,000 years in the future. As soon as the countdown has started - you will be given the $1,000,000!
"Insults" option ---- Twenty people will shout terrible insults and obscenities at you for one full hour. These people will not come into physical contact with you nor harm you, but they will say all sorts of horrible and upsetting things to you. After one full hour of intense verbal abuse - you will be given the $1,000,000!
"Magic" option ---- Your personality and ethical convictions will be painlessly altered in some unknown way by a magic spell. The alteration will be instantaneous and will not affect your memory, cause brain damage nor result in any physical harm of any kind. After the alteration - you will be given the $1,000,000!
"Nothing" option ---- None of the above. Nothing happens to you or anyone else, but you will NOT be given any money.
Which option would you choose first? Second? Third? Etc...???
Please list them like so ... (with "1" listed as your first choice, "2" as your next choice, and so on...)
1 - option name
2 - option name
3 - option name
4 - option name
5 - option name
I would go with the bomb option first. 5'000 years in the future is too far to comprehend. All I care for will be gone and we will probably have blown ourselves up by then anyway ^_^
Next would be the insults. Probably not a nice thing but as long as you have a thick skin it shouldn't be too bad.
Third would be the punched by a fat man option. I bet it would hurt like hell but hey, it's a million quid!
Fourth is the nothing for nothing and finally comes the one where I am altered somewhat. I would like to know what kind of person I would be after!
1 - Insults
2 - Punch
3 - Nothing (all below this is not acceptable)
4 - Magic
5 - Bomb
I find it unacceptable to be altered in my moral, or to destroy the earth... The 2 first, I would be happy to do!

1 Insults I would probably find it harder to sit still for the hour then listen to the insults... Earplugs anyone?
2 Bomb Its not gona destroy the earth, and in 5000 years we are either gona be on other planets or wiped out so what will it matter?
3 punch A broken nose for a mill? Couldint i just spend 5000 outa that to get plastic surgeory to fix anything that might get damaged?
4 Nothing Well not the most fun but at least i wont go home with a black eye or a bad self concious
5 Magic Dont really understand how much this will effect me
I wonder if someone could get their morals changed so they change their mind to the bomb option...
Insults are probably the best option. "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt."
Heh, what all the teachers used to tell everyone when they didn't feel like chasing down bullies.
But in the end I'd take the morals, let them be altered and hope I get some nice ones afterwards.
And if not well...I'm not the only evil bastard out there.

1 - Punch
2 - Insults
3 - Nothing
4 - Magic
5 - Bomb
Not into having my psyche changed, or in potentially murdering people. It's not so much the insults as I hate listening to people yelling.
After that I wouldn't like that for $1.000.000...
If I was punched to the face I am programmed by my Kick Boxing training to reply to the punch.
If I was insulted I would react the same by punching everyone and insulting back...
If it was the bomb I wouldn't stand the idea that I am destroying my future's kids future... well too future but the idea would eat me from inside!
And the Magic is ruled out as I love my personality and ethical convictions so far even for a million dollars....
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
First: insults. Taking verbal abuse for one hour for one million dollars. Worth it.
Second: Punch. One punch and I have a million dollars: if I now have a broken nose I can reset it.
Fourth: Magic. my personality will be changed, but at least I will not be known as he-who-destroyed-the-world-for-a-million-dollars-that-he-wasted-anyway.
