    One million dollars or flip a coin for twenty million dollars?

    It's kind of a stupid question but here it goes. Would you take one million dollars or flip a coin for twenty million dollars.

    Take the money and run.
    Of course, if I could flip a coin and it didn't matter which side it landed on and I still get $20M...I'll flip 1000 coins for you.

    If it's a gamble...I'm walking away with my $1M, pay the taxes, pay my bills, and invest the rest.

    Money has never been my goal or object really, so I would take the flip. My theory is that I am happy now, and I could be happy without it if I lost.

    Take the million and invest it. You don't have the million now, so grab the million, invest it, live like you STILL don't have it, and reap the rewards down the road.

    take the million now .... use it to fund an outing to steal the 19 million left from who ever was offering the 20 million in the first place.

    As tempting as the odds are, I'm way too prudent about financial decisions on larger scales. So I would take the million and be very happy.

    ahh to be young again. I would have done the same thing, but now at 39 with a house mortgage, wife three kids, I would take the million hide it in a bank back home in Cayman, and tell my wife to visit me there whenever she wants
    Support my Cause, 'Sleeping out to help Homeless Youth' by visiting www.firstgiving.com/paultyler and donating anything you can. I finished my three nights out in the snow! A couple pics, crappy blog and videos are on caymangolfer.spaces.live.com, check them out. It was a blast and makes me thankful I have a warm bed to live in everynight.
