You can choose either box and you can pick only one ball. If you pick a red ball, you get to keep your reproductive organs and you get $1,000,000.

Which box do you choose to pick a ball from?

I'll leave this poll up for 24 hours.

You just open the lid with the 50 black and 50 red balls and take a red ball out -;-)

For all I know the other box might have 98 black balls and 2 red ones - or even worse 100 black balls - but like trading - take the lid off and then you have a better chance

So i cant physically see the ball im picking, and choosing to not play isnt an option?

It looks like people don't want to risk voting in Pats' poll or maybe they are uncertain about it.

I went for (b)

The probability of there being >50 balls in (b) is the same as the probability of there being <50 balls (i.e. 50%).

However unlike (a) which is fixed at 50% there is a possibility that (b) >50%, so I went for (b) as you are risking your nads for both scenarios

Im showing my ignorance here, but I think based on what you just said, my brain is suggesting that the probability is the same for (a) and (b). The risk is same. But i am uncertain!

Personally, If there was a third option of 'kicking Pat in the balls and making off with the dosh', Id have chosen that! :cheesy:

One hand in the box, the other on yer balls.

Aha, that's the clever bit that'll be revealed after poll #2.I don't see how this is a difference between risk and uncertainty. Risk is tangible and can be defined.

We can define the odds for the worst case scenario for both boxes A and B

Uncertainty also has a factor to it that can't be mesured

Me bagman's holding the dosh and he's wearing a balaclava and has a pistol in his hand. Up ta you if you want to try it. But rather than kick me in the balls you might prefer to wager which one is red and which one is black.Personally, If there was a third option of 'kicking Pat in balls and making off with the dosh', Id have chosen that! :cheesy:

People are gay about being wrong.....

Makes no difference to me of nobody chooses to vote or not. These comments are the interesting bit.F**k it then, im balls deep in (a) ooer! In the hope that rob has it hopelessly wrong! And so Pat dont get p!ssed at noone playin
