Social Experiment

The other guy and I came up with this late tonight. I’ve always wanted to do a social experiment, so I might just have to follow through with this one. The idea is to make people choose between their own life and others given a limited amount of time to live their own.

“You have a fatal illness and if you choose to die now you are given 1.5 billion dollars (for family, friends, etc.), or you could go on living for a maximum of a year.”
The two choices being to take the money and die or to go on living for maybe a day, maybe a year.

It probably needs refinement. Discussion amongst nonexistent readers is encouraged, as I would legitimately like to try this survey for real.
