... In A Box.There is a movie coming out called "The Box".
No, it's not that kind of movie. Get your mind out of the gutter.
Apparently, it's based on a classic morality question:
You receive a button in a box. If you press the button, you get one million dollars, BUT someone in the world that you don't know dies.
This is both a serious, thought-provoking theoretical situation and an incredibly stupid situation.
I would love for someone to send something like this to me.
Do you have any idea how fast I would press that button? Do they make clocks that measure piccoseconds?
It's a million dollars for me versus death for someone I don't know.
I know me. I like me.
Me would like a million dollars.
Sure, I'd feel bad for getting someone else murdered, but I'm sure that, with time, I could come to terms with that.
Do you know what would help? A yacht.
Besides, it's not really MY fault. Someone else sent me a button in a box.
They wouldn't even have to tell me about the million dollars. It's a button in a box. Who the hell wouldn't press it?
EerieVoice>> If you press the...
EerieVoice>> Wait... Did you just press the button?
[GM]Dave>> It didn't do anything.
[GM]Dave>> Did I do it wrong?
[GM]Dave>> I think it's broken.
EerieVoice>> STOP PUSHING THE BUTTON!
EerieVoice>> If you push the button, you will receive one million...
EerieVoice>> You know what? Screw this.
EerieVoice>> I'm going to go kill someone now.
EerieVoice>> You're an asshole.
I'm sorry, but if you're planning some sort of moral dilemma in today's day and age, you have to be ready for people with no moral center. You have to be ready for people without a conscience or a soul.
Basically, you have to be ready for people like me.
I'm not kidding around. Go ahead and donate a million dollars and tell me you're going to kill someone.
You'll get a fan pack.
