Poll: Would you press the button

I like threads such as there. It helps you tell who to ignore in future arguments, because everyone who unironically answers yes to this question would be better off in a sanitarium.

I mean seriously, placing absolutely no value on life, that's a special kind of fucked up.

I wouldn't push the million dollar button, and I sure as hell wouldn't push this.

Mick Golden Blood:
kill 30% of all people of your gender, read the post bro.

There's also other reasons to press that button depending on your gender... Rather than just to get laid, though that is obviously the main focal point.

I knew that, actually, "ALL THE THINGS" is just a Hyperbole and a Half reference where "things" = males.

And my point still stands.

What point?

There is no point.

Any more silly semantics you care to annoy me with?

I get all of the boys.

Anyways, nope. The genders are, for all intents and purposes, 50/50. I'll find me a lady and some lady'll find me.

Considering the OP at one point said this wasn't murder, I am going to assume that pushing this button sends them to the elemental plane of hookers. Also seeing as the OP refused to clarify whether or not I could be part of the 30%, I'm going to call this a win-epic win scenario.

On a serious note, no, because I am not a psychopath, nor a narcissist, nor a desperate freak. I'll get the sexy time when I'm good and ready, I'm just not ready yet. /falseconfidence

evil and good are just illusions. There is no right or wrong, only goals to be met by whatever means you deem within means, or whatever kind of philosophy you happen to have.

One is not better than the other. It's like trying to convince a guy who likes fat chicks over skinny chicks. It's just a preference, and neither of you are wrong for it.

You say evil I say lemon.

Mick Golden Blood:
"I would kill approximately 75% of scum in my country, all males, yes, but they are 75% scum, so although I would obviously have better chance of getting laid, I would mainly do it for the good of the world in general."

Psuedo-nihilists always amuse me (or are you a psuedo-moral relativist?). Saying your actions would in the end be for the greater good then saying there is no evil. Ha! You can't have it both ways man, unless there's some pretty kinky stuff going on that I do not and may not want to know about. Maybe.

I'm a nice guy so no, I would not press that button. I would also take steps to make sure nobody else does either.

I like to think I have enough dignity left in me to not resort to committing genocide in order to get female attention.

Seriously, what the fuck.

I'd like to think I wouldn't press a button that could kill me.

I smoke cigarettes for that, what do I need a button for?

Girls? lol

There are plenty of girls out there needing some Sober Thal. I need a stick to fight them all off as it is.

I would press the button, because it is a button, and it's sitting there, just waiting to be pressed. Longing for its purpose to be fulfilled. It would be a disservice to the button to not press it. A horrible crime, even. I don't even care for the potential of attention from the opposing gender, I just want to help that lonely button achieve it's purpose.

Can I please press it 3 times and remove 90% of men? Finally I'd have a slight chance of a relationship.

Its only 30 %, rarer my ass.

no, thats alright. losing that many people wold throw the economy into a deeper tailspin.

I love how about 27% voted yes, yet I see no-one admitting it, at least not on page 1.

I would not press it. 30% makes chances that I know the person too high, also it makes the murder count a bit too high in my opinion. Also I'm not desperate enough to have one person murdered just to get laid.

Where is the poll option that says: Don't press the button, but tell everyone you have the button and then hold the country ransom until they meet your demands?

So the holocaust in WW2 was just Hitler "meeting his goals"? He was no better or worse a person than Mother Theresa? I dunno if you're kidding or not, but you sound like a robot, wiping out millions of people so that you can have a better chance of getting laid is pretty low down on the morality scale.

Evil and good aren't preferences, they're two extremes on the moral scale. A scale that helps define what kind of person you are.

Come on, really? The people who sweep the streets? Refine my gas? Guard me while I sleep? Do NOT F___ with THEM! Who's gonna do those jobs once those people vanish?! The world will be poorer for their absence! The food they would have grown disappears from my cupboard? From my plate? The gasoline, from my car? Maybe even its engine! My mechanics? My car is, once again, a squealing, maple-scented hell-with-no-heat?
Uh, pass.

I'd probably press it because I press just about every button I see. I can't tell you how many times I've gotten in trouble because I like pressing buttons. Especially unlabelled ones, I mean... it has no label! How am I supposed to know what it does if I don't press it!

Hell no. I consider myself likeable and attractive enough to find a woman all on my own. I don't need your hypothetical button of genocide.

i actually have friends...so no

I would never sacrifice another person's life for something as trivial as my love life.

i would press the button, but not for the reason you think, if there is a big button in front of me, i will push it,

Riding in the elevator with you must be fun.

That depends on how conspicuous it was, and how the sign saying "DO NOT PUSH THIS BUTTON" looked.

"Now why would you go and do something like that!?"

Push the button, lessen global overpopulation, make EVERYTHING BETTER. Totally.

OT: if I got to choose the people erased, then hell yes I would. I could single-handedly (ha, turns out that isn't a word) create a world in which every convicted rapist, child abuser and murderer never existed. That's a lot of victims who'd get their lives back in an instant and never even know what they had been through.

I already have the person I want. Not sure how long it will last - but there is no reason to think it will end.
I still wouldn't press it if I lost her, because people should choose you for who you are, not because you're the best choice- but because you're the choice they want to make.

Which 30%? That situation could have two outcomes, either it gets rid of the 30% that are less lovable than me, in which case I'd be even further down the ladder than I already am, or it gets rid of 30% of those who are better than me, in which case I'd be stuck in a world full of pricks.

If it's a choice between being king of a country of idiots or a pauper in a God's realm, then I'd rather not have either, I'd prefer to stay average.

Also, 'because there's no-one better' is not a good reason to love someone, I'd rather do it honestly.

Really could use a girlfriend though.

Well, we know what NightHawk21 is planning, lol.

edit

nahh but I would happily press the button to spawn 100% more of the opposite gender who are all Swedish models. That button would be very much pressed :P

Fluffles:

That makes no sense. If 30% less people existed, it would be 100% of selection choice, just as it is now. If we use your exact argument, your current partner chose you because there could have been 130% of the current male population, but, seeing as how there isn't, you were the best choice.

In math terms: SM = 1:10,000 or SM = 1:100,000
Where SM is soul mate.

If there's 3.5 billion males (ignoring ages for the sake of simplicity) she chose you not because you were "the choice they want to make," but because they couldn't chose from 5 billion.

If there are ten lollies in a bag, the one you choose isn't the best in the world, it's simply the best of the ten in the bag. If the bag had fifty lollies in it, the same could be said.

Get me?

I'd say a good 80% of guys in America have a harder time getting laid than I do (Not trying to brag but I'm a 22 year old in good shape who isn't socially inept), so I think pushing that button would be a pretty dumb decision.

If the button's pressed 30% of your gender will disappear. Just under 30% of the people in the poll voted yes. Coincidence? I think not! I would press the button just to get rid of the 30% of the population who would push the button.

Oh wait...

But, but. I want more of the same sex!

I'd press it, but only because we're gettin over populated, think of all the extra space!
I don't really need the extra attention, and I'm pretty sure it doesn't count as murder, because you're erasing them from ever existing (Can't kill someone who was never there).

If your the kind of person that would push the button chances are that even if 30% of your gender was to suddenly disappear it wouldn't help your chances of getting laid.
