    Seriously.

    What the fuck.

    What does the kills/evilness curve look like? One kill is bad, 300k or so kills is bad, 5 billion kills is good?


    Maybe it's 'different,' psychologically, because it's presumably random rather than targeted against specific groups of people. Or maybe it's 'different' the motivation is 'different'--reducing population across the board rather than eradicating a specific culture or ideology.

    I use 'different' in quotes for a reason.

    I'm still going with my "This might really be a metaphor for enlightenment" theory and bearing in mind that it's only a light-hearted hypothetical topic anyway, rather than getting an army of tropical ants in my pants about it all.

    Yeah, like, when did this thread stop being funny? It's a nipple button for pity's sake.

    In the off chance that it works, are you really ready to deal with the consequences? What're you gonna tell the others? You were just curious? "Oh, I just wanted to see what would happen. Now everyone's dead. Ya sorry about that. Sorry everyone! Sorry." You're going to sound like an idiot.

    Point taken.

    Some people, though, have been dead serious in their responses.

    I'm confused.

    If you pressed it once, and killed the 5,000,000,000 people that it said it would, and then you pressed it again, would it kill the remaining people, or would it say "not enough people to send"?
