Has anyone seen the preview for that new movie called THE BOX? A couple is offered a million dollars to push a button that will take the life of someone. My question is would any one on Lush take the money and push the button without a problem or would it bother you knowing you have to take a persons life for the money.

I would rather live in a refridgerator box on the side of the road than to kill someone for a million bucks. No way. sad3

Unless I'm wrong, that's based on an old Twilight Zone episode that I really enjoyed.

No, I wouldn't take a million dollars if it meant someone dying. I'd feel wayyyyyy too guilty and wouldn't enjoy the money. I'd end up giving it away to the person's family.

I wouldn't even keep a million dollars if I found it somewhere. If it's not mine or I didn't come across it legally, I'd get no enjoyment out of it.

I couldn't handle making the decision to end someone's life, no matter whether money was involved or not. It's not my decision to make.

The deal is they end up killing someone they know right?
If it was a stranger, hell yeah I'd do it. For that matter, let me pick someone.
I've been poor and I've been rich. Rich is better. I don't like money but it quiets my nerves.

Right now i'd say no, but then again i've never been so poor i couldnt afford to eat or have somewhere to stay. Maybe if i was in those desperate conditions i would, you dont know what you're capable of until you're pushed

You know that would never happen for us, right Red? We'd go to the prisons and pick out a baby raper and they'd say no, no, no. You have to pick out someone else. evil4

When ever I think of murder, I think it would be simple, but I'm all talk. If I was put in the situation, I would not be able to.

Not ever ever!! Life is too precious! I would hate to think that someone out there would be able to do that to me, because I would never be able to do it to them.

Not "the box" idea. I wouldn't just snuff out somebody random. In some weird way, that adds to the entropy of the universe. That said, I would hire out as a hit man for the right kind of money. Not the 'please shoot my wife so I can run off with her sister' kind of crap. Only knuckleheads do that rot. But if there's a two million dollar purse for some dictator, I'll be on the next flight out.

If I could pick the person and there was no way I could be punished for it then hell yeah I could think of a few people I could pick off!

Darn it guys, I thought for sure my answer was going to be "yes" and then you all analysed it to death (no pun).

The consequence was 'someone' would die, no assurances it would be a stranger or some scum bag, therefore I would have to decline.

The good news is that when Lisa finds that million bucks she'll now know she can call me to return it to my dear self. binky

People have been killed for less, you know. And, would I do it? I've done it before. Anybody can kill another person. Sometimes the first one is hard, sometimes it's not, depends on the person & depends on if the bullets are flying back in your direction also.
