Default Would you rather...

1. Receive a sum of $150,000.

or

2. Have a 85% chance of receiving $1 Billion. If you lose, you go to prison for life.

85% chance is HUGE. So I'll go with that.

#1, no risk and a decent reward.

Is it one of those prisons in the Philippines where you get to dance to 'Thriller' by Michael Jackson?

Probably the 2nd. If I lost I'd feel like it was my destiny to suffer.... otherwise I'd never have another financial worry. That in and of itself is worth it.

Option 2, easily.

If I end up in prison, I'll plead innocent and within a few months I'll be out...

My life is pretty good as it is, so $150,000 is bonus. Pays off most of my debt and I'll have a good job without loans.

$1B would be nice, but not worth potentially prison for life.

At the thought of someone being thrown in prison for life over this.

Tough decision but I'd probably go with #1

This is "go big or don't go at all"

Type things, so I'd normally go with option #2.
But life in prison? F.uck that.

I'll go with #1. $150,000 is cool anyway.
If I went to a bank and they gave me a cd with some really good interest I could make like $10,000 a year JUST off of that interest.
In 5 years, that's $50,000.
Obviously it'd take a while but then you can start making some serious investments to set yourself up for life so you wouldn't have to work and you won't be a billionaire but shit, you don't have to be to live life at a very high comfort level
