The Question Club
You're shopping for a house. One of the homes is very spacious, very beautiful, and in a good neighborhood. The price is surprisingly low. When you ask the realtor about it, she tells you that, the former tenant was a convicted serial killer. They found 15 bodies buried under the house and 10 in the crawlspace. It's half the price of all the other homes. Would you buy it?
You're shopping for a house. Again, another spacious, appealing house for half price. The catch? Your house and only your house is built over an old graveyard from the 1700s. They moved the gravestones but left the bodies. Do you take the house?
You're shopping for a house. Again, yet another spacious, appealing house for half price. This time, the catch is that it's supposed to be haunted. The realtor just says that the house has a reputation and the last 10 owners have all sold the house within 6 months of purchasing it. Each one. Do you take the house?
Lastly, you're looking to buy a house. Another house, blah blah blah, nice and 1/4th off. The catch here is that 20 years ago, the owners were this family of 4. The oldest son at the time murdered his sister in her bedroom, and was institutionalized. The family sold the house. 7 years later, the kid escapes, travels home, and kills the occupants of his parents' old bedroom. Institutionalized again, he escapes 5 years later, and 6 years after that, and does the same thing. Kills the occupants of that bedroom. But this time, he's been transferred across the country, so the experts feel it's unlikely he'd do it again. Do you take the house?
