Yes, I would. A risk is anything that exposes something to danger or harm, and since you're life is never guaranteed safe, then life itself is its own risk, so technically I should already have my million dollars bitch!

No way. I could DIE. Then I'm dead AND I don't have a million dollars.

depends on the level of risk
one in a million?

It depends on the level of risk, of course. How many bullets does the chamber hold, and how many are in it? I'd probably do it if the odds of me dying were perceived to be less than 10%, and otherwise I get 1 million

Yep its a level of risk just crossing a quiet road. I would cross such a road for a million dollars.

Like the others said, it depends on the level of risk.

Also, which type of death.
Instant and painless - more likely.
Long, slow, and painful - less likely.

I'm trying to think what is the most daring act I'd do for a million dollars.

Swim in the sea where there's a reported shark warning? Maybe...
Drink something that *might* be poisonous? No.
Eat rotten chicken? Um. I dunno. I'd have to research it first.
Try an experimental drug? Dunno. Prolly not.

Hmm.

i would probably do all of those for the money tbh
which is stupid, as i don't even care about money. i have enough already
5 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 11/1/14 - 4:28:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, that is pretty stupid.
5 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 11/1/14 - 4:30:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
part of it is the vague 'what could i do with a sh*tload of money' fantasies
part of it is some dark fatalistic sh*t
part of it is just 'f*ck it, let's do something risky for the thrill'

Would you...

- attempt to ride a rhino
- go on a ship across the Somalian coast
- be a reporter in a warzone
- wrestle a tiger that's just eaten

(My answers: no, yes, yes, probably not)
5 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 11/1/14 - 4:48:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes
yes
no
yes

(i would feel way too terrible exploiting the suffering of people in scenario c for my gains. unless i suppose i was actually doing good and helping the situation with my reporting, in which case yes)
5 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 11/1/14 - 4:51:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd like to start a crowdfund just to see skyfish attempt to ride a rhino.
5 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 11/1/14 - 4:52:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
how hard can it be? i've rode a horse and that's basically the same thing, right?
5 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 11/1/14 - 4:56:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
actually on second thoughts i'm not sure i could handle the warzone even if i was potentially doing good
f*ck that sh*t
5 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 11/2/14 - 7:01:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
If I die, do I still get the cash? Because I'd risk it to make sure my loved ones are taken care of.
