    Nope. I`d lock it in a safe, in a safe, in concrete.

    Why would you even ask?

    "Didn`t know" is the important part. Never met these people, never will, hopefully their deaths are quick and merciful.

    Yeah, but you know there`s always a catch to these things. Like one of the people you don`t know is the scientist who discovers the cure for the disease you die of a year later.

    Hmm- Part of me says yes, BUT I am not sure. At some level I suspect it would haunt me- even if nothing bad happened to me- the knowledge I had caused someone to die would set me wondering. I think that on balance I would rather not...

    This is based on an old short story. In the story, the couple who receive the button eventually push it. When the man comes to give them the money, he takes the button with him. When they ask, "what are you going to do with the button", he relies, "Give it to someone else, someone you don`t know."

    I think this concept was a Twilight Zone episode? It soooo sounds like something Serling or Matheson wrote? But I dunno if it was from the 60`s versions or the 80`s? Wasn`t there some flop movie too later on? :::too early to google:::

    Karma ain`t a thing. Do right, do wrong. Take responsibility. That`s yours.

    no karma, no vicarious redemption in the blood of the lamb. Do what you do and own it. That`s who you are. Now live with it.

    Stupid question, because you can never really know what you really would do. It is easy to be outspoken about a hypothetical case, but real life is not that

    With that million dollars, you could save a great many lives in the third world.

    However, only a psychopath would say that.

    @TheZigRat, "How can they take a 2 page short story and tuen it into an hour and a half movie?"

    They compiled it with like four other short story ideas and yeah spoiler, aliens. I would only press the button if it was someone who was going to die anyways and without me pressing the button wouldn`t pass on. Or that`s how I would sell the idea to myself.
