$750k/Year to pull a chain... Apr. 2nd, 2012 @ 05:50 PM Reply

Let's say somebody offered you a job where all you have to do is pull a chain once every month. You don't know what the chain does, and the chain doesn't lead anywhere. You just pull it once every month, and when you do the employer adds $62,500 into your bank account, no questions asked. There's no sound before or after pulling the chain, it's just a chain which you pull. Would you take it?

In that case the chain doesn't do anything. So yes, I would take that job.

Because the unknown is super scary or something.

Exactly. If you don't know, it's REALLY easy to justify it. Especially if you have such a massive incentive. People have killed for less money than that. Pulling a chain is nothing.

Unless of course there is only one opening available. Then I'm afraid I'll have to kill you Timmy.

I'm guessing pulling the chain would drop something nasty on me, and could even kill me.

Why else would someone claim to pay me that much money?

OP already said the chain doesn't lead anywhere. It therefore cannot do anything. Unless it's magical.

Sounds a little bit like Lost and the button. ;p

But anyways, of course I would take this job! Seems to have no consequence, now if it was like pull the chain once a month and someone unknown to you gets tortured or something....I feel more people would be less likely to take that job.

It's boring job and it is low paywage, for me.

My current one is from $80k to $120K depend on what contracts people and I going to have a deal with. It sure is fun and difficult to work. Ethical works also.

Put $500k and I may pull that chain.

Arrg fuck I forgot my pair of glasses (missed the 0...). I take some of my words back. Nope I'm not gonna do it. But I would like to watch people kill each other just to pull that chain.
