100% for $1 million or 50/50 for $25 million

another what if moments. Anyone here risk takers?? Since the off topic is getting boring as of late, lets discuss and argue which choice is better. I personally would take the million

I would agree to split the 25 million with the other 50/50'er.

12.5 Million is better




Edit: Stupid fucking 4am posts. why do I enter these damn things.

If the OP worded it 100% for 1 million, or 50% chance for $25 million it would make more 4 AM sense!

you do know that 50/50 applies to everyone right... it's like two people rolling two seperate dice with a 1/6 chance....

Would you bet one million dollars for a 50 50 chance of winning 25 million dollars?

If you think its impossible to make a million dollars in your life, then you are probably incapable of recognizing the benefits of having a million in cash handed to you anyhow.

Probably blow through it in under a year, and end up with debts so big you lose whatever worldly possessions you had before you started anyhow.

25 million and 1 million, are only similar to people who have nothing.

I'd roll the dice. I am happy where I am now, but 25 million would significantly change the foreseeable future.

I'd take the 1 million.

Then use that 1 million and grow it into 25 million. Entrepreneur side of me would kick in with a million in hand.

the 50-50 is NOT a split but 50% chance of winning the 25mil..


Logically, it should be the 1mil...
is this about gambling or like a draw type??
if its about going to the casino, then i can do some pretty stupid things with money at the casino, getting into the heat of the moment...
if its like a draw type then the 1mil is a no brainer...

I'd take the million as well. That's too easy of a choice

A closer risk tester might be..
Would you take $5,000 or 50% of getting $1 million

25M scenario: Expected winnings = 12.5MM
1M scenario: Expected winnings = 1MM

Hmm..

Who doesn't pick the one mill is just retarded...? Please... for the yourself and for our community.. get some education...

Option A:

100% for 1 Million

For every 1 % = 10 thousand


Option B:

50% for 25 million

50%+50% = 100%
25million / 2 = 12.5 million

for every 1% = 50 thousand


side note - I would assume that for those who commented lives in Canada/developed nations = high living standard. If a person that lives in Africa gets a chance to pick, he/she should not take any risk and walk away with that 1 million.


One last thing... one million dollars is not much as of today.

1 million isn't as much as used to be. I would take the risk.

50/50 does not mean split 50/50! There is no 'Risk' in SPLITTING it 50/50.

To put it in easier terms, it's flipping a coin.
Coins have two sides.
You either pick heads or tails.
50% heads, 50% tails.

Heads is 25 million
Tails is $0

You have 50/50 chance on getting both.
not 12.5 million vs 1 million

Maybe the OP should edit his original post to state 50/50 doesn't mean SPLIT the 25 mill but rather 50% chance of 25 mill cause some people just aren't understanding it.

I KNOW THERE IS NO SPLITTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was trying to prove that if someone is willing to risk 50 percent chance to gain 25 million, is definitely worth a shot!


50% = 25 million.. which means 100% = 12.5 million! all i did was flip the numbers around!
