Push the button….

My finger is on the button
My finger is on the button
My finger is on the button
Push the button
The time has come to…    Galvanize

Galvanize By The Chemical Brothers…

Sunday night I went to the cinema with friends to watch “The Box“. I wanted to see Avatar 3D, unfortunately you have to wait for films to be released before you can watch them. Who knew!….   In case you are not familiar with the film “The Box” here’s the plot summery from IMDB :-

Norma and Arthur Lewis, a suburban couple with a young child, receive a simple wooden box as a gift, which bears fatal and irrevocable consequences. A mysterious stranger, delivers the message that the box promises to bestow upon its owner $1 million with the press of a button. But, pressing this button will simultaneously cause the death of another human being somewhere in the world; someone they don’t know. With just 24 hours to have the box in their possession, Norma and Arthur find themselves in the cross-hairs of a startling moral dilemma and must face the true nature of their humanity.

So. Someone gives you a box with a button. If you press the button you will get $1million (say £500,000) But someone somewhere will die. Would you press the button?

“Well would you?”

Turns out, everyone in the group I was with would not press the button, Neither would the selection of people I have asked over IM, or IRL.  In fact so far I am the only person who has admitted to the fact that I would press the button with no second thoughts.

I am now worrying I may have slight sociopathic tendencies.
