a) Interesting trivia: pothole does not derive from a hole that s about the same size or shape as a pot. Rather, it is that they resemble the holes that potters used to dig to get clay.

b) My apologies, sir. Make that speed limit 107,519.7312 furlongs per fortnight.

He is totally indifferent to whether you actually drink it. If you back out of drinking it you will not have cheated in any way and nobody will care.

So, if you get the money, you will be standing there with the cash and zero incentive to drink the toxin.

How do you get the money?

I think he's saying that you swallowed the money. So you can either take the toxin and puke it up, or don't and dig it out of your poo.

There is a pretty great documentary about a kidnapping, ransom, and a chopped off toe.

This is the stupidest thing I have ever seen. Have you never been seasick? FFS... I've been so seasick I was afraid I wouldn't die... for days at a time.

$10M to drink something that will make me effectively seasick for 24hrs, no ill after affects? Sign me the F up.

Snap take the illness for 24hrs for $10mm

Dunno how losing my pinky toe would affect my skiing and I dunno how losing a pinky finger would affect my ability to play drums.

It's supposed to be given that you'd be willing to take the toxin for the $.

The problem is, can you ever intend to take the toxin, knowing it will be irrational to do so?

In case I'm presenting it wrong...

I’d still take the toxin. I’d feel better about myself

I can get irrational for $10,000,000. Can't I decide to take the poison regardless of whether it's required as long as it gets me 10 mega?

Does the 10m go to the person or people of my choosing if I die? Or must I survive?

The bulk of it goes to the patsy I recruited to drink it for me. I'd prefer to say he gets it all minus my reasonable fee @45%.

According to my doctor, there is a 100% chance I am going to die with or without the $10m within the next 75 years...

So give me a sip.

With the advances in modern medicine and your level of income it's not crazy to think you could live to 245, maybe 300.

And yet, that only gets us back to a third the life expectancy of folks who lived 4500 years ago.
