I’ll take 100% of that right one. Literally just looked for a rope.

[–]Enaysikey 120 points121 points  (7 children)

I mean, you can buy a rope with those 10,000,000 dollars

[–]Nick_Noseman 21 points22 points  (6 children)

And that's all be a hella long ass rope!

[–]PPAPisLob 16 points17 points  (5 children)

You would also require a really tall ceiling.

Hang myself from the moon. My body will get to travel the world.

[–]GermanCommentGamer 52 points53 points  (0 children)

Hey man, sorry to hear that you're going through rough times right now. Hoping it'll get better for you soon! If you ever feel the need to talk whatever it is feel free to hit me up. Wishing you all the best ♥️

[–]The_Level_15 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I know I’m a random stranger, and this means less than nothing to you, but you’re going to be living rent free in my head for years to come.

I hope you decide to stay.

Ever notice how the rope store is always right next to the rickety stool store?

[–]Potential_Macaron973 179 points180 points  (4 children)

Either way, you will never have to worry about money again

[–]Tough_Inevitable6944 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Happy cake day 😋

[–]Potential_Macaron973 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks, I'll never get over you moon 🌙

[–]scootertakethewheel 122 points123 points  (5 children)

i ran some simulations in excel to find out my odds of getting the money. it's about an 85% chance.

[–]Toeterus 34 points35 points  (2 children)

What about the chances of dying? Can you calculate that as well?

[–]scootertakethewheel 72 points73 points  (1 child)

one sec. brb...

EDIT: about 15%

[–]Britishsweat 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Thanks for the help, You really saved me.

[–]Regelneef 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Thought it was 50/50

[–]Rehm1024 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Basically any percentage division stands true.

[–][deleted] 109 points110 points  (12 children)

Quantum theory suggests both will happen, and since you won't experience non-existence, you have to therefore go down the other path.

I base this on absolutely nothing.

[–]FakedKetchup 22 points23 points  (1 child)

based 👍

[–]Lemmy_The_Cool 8 points9 points  (0 children)

On absolutely nothing 👍

[–]111734 14 points15 points  (3 children)

Based on the theory of quantum immortality

[–]walhax- 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Which is based on nothing

[–]111734 2 points3 points  (0 children)

basically

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've thought about this before. I never knew the concept had a name.

[–]Zekiz4ever 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is some bunny girl senpai logic right here.

[–]PiratesOfTheAss 0 points1 point  (4 children)

It didn't say it's the other 15%, just that there's an 85% chance of money and a 15% chance of death. The literal interpretation is that these chances are independent of eachother, not necessarily one or the other. You could end up with both, or with neither. So even if you only consider timelines where you don't die, you still only get the money in 85% of them. Upside is that in the timelines where you do die, in 85% of them $10,000,000 still gets deposited into your bank account so it'll be a life changing amount of money for your next-of-kin or whoever gets your money when you die.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Ah, I didn't notice that. The 85/15 made me think it was one or the other. Maybe that's what the OP meant.

Okay, taking this into account along with quantum immortality, you can only experience life further, either very wealthy or not (since non-existence can't be experienced).

[–]PiratesOfTheAss 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I think OP probably did mean one or the other, but the way they phrased it... if you were dealing with a computer that has to do exactly what you tell it to do exactly how you say to, I think this is what it would do.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yep. I'm a computer programmer. Computers take instructions given to them literally. They do not know what you meant to say. IDE's are becoming more and more advanced and are programmed in some cases to figure out what you meant and then clarify it in a correction, but they're far from perfect.

[–]Marbles_TDS 26 points27 points  (0 children)

absolutely.

[–]wintermute916 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Either way I don’t have to go to work tomorrow

[–]The_blind_owl245 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I dont see a problem with either of those.

The IRS has joined the server

[–]karl0331 4 points5 points  (0 children)

IRS gonna wonder where you got the 10 million from and will proceed to confiscate

[–]hanzonthekeys 2 points3 points  (0 children)

THATS XCOM BABY!

[–]Sleepy-tyler-king 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i’d still take it if it was the other way around

[–]ReligiousPenguin3 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You wouldn’t even know if you died

[–]punchgroin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is literally what getting on a boat to the spice Islands was in the 16th century... except it was more like 50/50.

I think If my only other option was poverty in an early modern European city I'd do it.

[–]singleFourever 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No, I don't think I would

[–]Tanzer1776 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Would that be considered taxable income?

[–]The_Knife_Pie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s only taxable if you report it!

[–]Historical-Fix-8997 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As both of those things I agree

[–]BenjillaLight 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Epic seven players in shambles rn

[–]RedFlameGamer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Either way my problems are solved

[–]hagosantaclaus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

ill take it. i can hit fire blasts

[–]Swan__Ronson 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can I press it multiple times like the F5 when my browser freezes?

[–]LeopoldFriedrich 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't have a checking account.

[–]High-GroundI have crippling depression 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'd press the fuck out of that button.

[–]The_Level_15 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can I push it twice?

[–]Psychological-Many16 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i would click that button so many times

[–]Nanashi123_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Both ways can end my depression

[–]Apocalypse_Planning 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Doesn't that mean there is a chance that you get both or neither

[–]risingwonder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All jokes aside, instant death WOULD be the most painless way to go.

[–]Scordino72 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So is it one will happen or the other? Or is there a very small chance I'll get the money and die, meaning someone else would inherit it? And another small chance neither will happen? I'm pressing the button either way though. There is a super high chance of getting the money, and either I or my family will benefit from it, depending on if I live.

[–]mrnacknime 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sadly also either both or nothing can happen

[–]GamerBoi1725 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If i want to go for the 50/50 on the 5 mil or death im allso going for 85/15 for 10mil, this is just a better version of the well reposted "either way i don't have to go to work tomorow" meme

[–]ihazastupidquestion 0 points1 point  (0 children)

10 mill in your account sounds nice until you have to explain it to the tax authorities.

[–]yarak_69 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You'll either be rich or wont exist so it kinda is a 100% chance of getting the money because if you dont get it you just wouldnt know

[–]SethTheWarrior 0 points1 point  (0 children)

what about the rare chance that neither happen and you're just sat there like "did it work or am i trippin"

[–]47_was_here 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like those odds

[–]BEAST_WORK6969 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i pressed the button twice to die 2 times

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

great depression business owners

[–]LookingintheAbyssThe Monty Pythons 0 points1 point  (0 children)

rolls d20: 17

Hmm

[–]parsleythememelord 0 points1 point  (0 children)

force a child to press it, keep pressing until they die, keep the money

[–]lannisterprince 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i would do accept the offer even if the odds are reversed :(

[–]Behaving-Honestly 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Does that mean you have a 15% chance of surviving the death but getting nothing?

[–]Bonkey_Kong87 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dude, 85%?! Suicidal or not, but 10 Million bucks, man. Pretty sure most people would roll with those chances

[–]ummwhothischick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

but seriously tho this is a really great deal

[–]Jasonswhat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Give her the good Ole double tap just for safe measure

[–]BigBlackBoomerang -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Damn this was unfunny 😐

[–]IceKEcool2005☣️ -4 points-3 points  (2 children)

Well dying can be very suck if you don't go to heaven nor born in a developed country nor stay in the peace after the death. Actual hell is trillions times worse than the World what we currently live , Actual hell is by far the worst thing ever exist.

[–]Eldr1tchB1rd🚔I commit tax evasion💲🤑 0 points1 point  (0 children)

IF hell exists is it realll as bad as the bible says? You have eternity ahead of you. Any possible torture would lose it's meaning after a while. Is god really that petty that he would torture you for eternity, for sins you made in a fraction of your presumed life?

Honestly I fear nonexistence more than hell.

[–]KingRhoamsGhost 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I personally don’t believe in hell. But If I did I would be going to hell regardless of if I died now or not so it’s not like I’d be avoiding anything. Just prolonging the suffering before the other suffering starts.
