    Cool What Would You Do?

    As you are walking, a sleek vehicle pulls along side and the window rolls down.

    A mysterious, well-dressed stranger says they are a philanthropist and hands you a packet containing $2500, telling you it is yours to spend.

    The only caveat: You must spend the money on someone other than yourself. Literally ANYone for ANY reason.

    They explain that they will track the bills and you may receive more money in the future, depending on how this money is used.

    Who do you give the money to and why?

    1. I would probably freak the fuck out and run away before I accepted anything like that from someone. Who knows what the hell kind of scheme they are trying to pull?

    2. Okay, assuming we play your way and this is somehow a nonthreatening scenario, I would give all or nearly all of the money to my mom and then maybe give a little bit to my dad.

    Don't think I necessarily need an explanation for this answer.

    Assuming it's legit, I'd probably divide it equally between my parents, Doctors Without Borders, Peace Corps, and the Sierra Club. And maybe my brother.

    I would probably just keep it around to hold in case any particular friend/family or any given person was in a pinch.

    But, I think a more interesting question is what would Dwight Schrute do? He would launder the money into bitcoins. And use half the money to hire a P.I. to find the secret philanthropist, then use the other half to buy ninja equipment to kill him and steal all of his money, then use that money to create an education fund for orphaned Germanic children living in America.

    I'd spend it on my cat.

    I'd save it until someone I know truly needs it, then I'd give it to them.

    The girl next door with cancer.

    Split it between her and my cousin with 3 kids who is getting a divorce and is struggling financially.

    Easy.

    I would only wish I had more to give them.

    I would be a bit suspicious to just take his word for it. You never know if there is a catch. But assuming I used it...

    I would just give it to someone who needs it. So if there happens to be a catch, at least I used it for a good cause.
