The Question Club
There's 3 pinatas. Two of them are filled with $10,000 in cash (each). The third is filled with angry hornets. You can't tell which one is which (just cause). Will you smash one open, or walk away?
There are 4 passageways, shrouded in darkness. Three of them lead to an alcove with a suitcase of money ($20,000). The fourth leads to a wall, but not before you walk through a gigantic spiderweb, with several large spiders hanging from it. Do you walk down one of the passageways, or walk back where you came?
Back where I came
There are 10 passageways. 9 lead to a room with a chest of $50,000 in gold dubloons. The tenth passageway has a trap door, that, when fallen through, splashes into a large tub of honey. In the room is a family of hungry honey badgers. Do you go forward into the passageways, or turn back?
There's 10 bathtubs. In 9 of them, you pull a cord and it releases $10,000 in paper currency into the tub on top of you. The 10th cord, when pulled, releases 50lbs of wriggling earthworms and beetles. Do you pull the cord or walk away?
There are 30 bungee stations overlooking a 500 ft drop. 29 of these stations are perfectly normal and will return you to safety after you jump, where you will be paid $1,000,000. The last station has a cable that's only supposed to support 50lbs in weight, and anything over will break and the jumper will fall to their peril. The cables are all identical in appearance. 29 bungee stations will make you a millionaire. 1 will make you a grease spot. You have no way of telling which is which. Will you jump?
