No. The guilt would surpass any monetary prize. That and the horrible, horrible screaming I would hear inside me every night.



Everyone needs to play Lost Odyssey! Any opposition to this and I will have to just say, "If it's a fight you want, you got it!"

No. But people in our armed forces do it for much less.

It depends on who the victim is..

I probably say yes though. And I think that's the only moral choice. You could use the money to save millions of people. Basically, the question could be rephrased to say "Why you kill the millions of people, or kill just one person?" I think the answer is much more clear there.

If you could choose who to kill, then the answer is even easier. I would kill the oldest, sickest person in the world with the lowest probability of contributing to the planet. But even if its random, I would still do it. Statistically, two random people are more likely to help the Earth and society than one random person. And millions of people are virtually guaranteed to.

However, if the victim is chosen for me, then it would depend on what she/he does.

But of course this is all easy to say now. If presented with the question in real life, I might not be able to do it.

Your utilitarian argument bothers me.  Who are you to weigh the worth of somebody's life?



Sure, when it comes with such benefits it's hard to decline.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

absolutely not. anyone that says yes is a piece of shit.

No questions asked, yes.

If I feel bad afterwards, I'll pay a psychiatrist to help me through it all, lol.

Yes I would. Nobody is really innocent and will eventually die anyway. I would probably do it even for less just to see how it feels to take somebodys live. And to see how much it woudl affect me.

I would never kill a cat or dog tough


You are weird.


Yeah I know. I think the value of a persons live is overrated 



A human is less valuable than a cat/dog?


No, I don´t think so. Its less valuable then most people pretend that it is. History has prooven that over and over again.



Yet you would kill a person, but not a dog. Why?
