If someone said I'll give you a million dollars to say- do a skydive, then brought you to a room to pick a parachute but you knew one was packed with laundry, how many chutes would you need in there to make you do it (ie, 4 chutes - 1 in 4 odds, 100 chutes -1 in 100 etc) poll coming

depends on the the reward and how close to good ol' "rock bottom" i've come. i'd say 1/4 is decent enough. maybe 1/6 russian roulette status

If only one chute was packed with laundry, I'd want the most chutes possible to pick from, so 100.

I'd do it with odds of just 1 in 2, but I'd be secretly making a deal with the pilot to swap chutes for a share of half the money once I was on the plane.

seriously though if only one parachute is filled with laundry all you need is two. having a hundred is just annoying

Also yeah, if they had the million in cash right there tempting you as well.

I'd be pretty tempted with the 1-10, probably realistically go for it at 1-20.

1-1000 The odds are in my favor if there's 999 parachutes and only one sack of laundry.

A million bucks? Honestly, I'd probably go for 1-10 odds. Most likely I'm a millionaire and if not I'm dead fast.

It would have to 100% chance of success for me.

Think about it, Russia roulette with a standard 6 shot revolver, you have an 83.3% of hitting an empty chamber.

Still not good enough odds for me to gamble my life. I value my life a lot higher than $1 million.

Pfft. Everyone knows you can pull a McGyver if ever you pick the laundry by using drapes as a parachute.


...or you can take a quick peek at the contents of the bags while the other guy's not looking

I'd probably take the offer around 100 if it was a verbal auction type of thing, but if I just had a list of all my options I'm taking the largest amount of parachutes, obviously.

Well you'd probably be safest with just the one main chute and a reserve, so that.

I'd do it with 1-4 odds 75% chance of me winning. Or 1-100 is practically guaranteed.

You know the funny part, it's easy to sit here and say, "I'll do it for these odds". To actually do it, that requires a lot of stupidity or a huge thrill rush desire.
