Anyone who goes for the 14k is jobless. There's no point whatsoever in ignoring a 50% chance to earn 2 million if you earn at least 30-40k annually. 14k is not a sum you will miss as long as you have a stable source of income.

For a 50:50 chance at 2 mill.....I'd go for the 2 mill.

...and I'd look for ways of increasing the odds in my favor.

$14,000 is the new $100 and will not accomplish crap in the long run.

I take it youre on NZT-48 smart pill as seen in the movie limitless.

Can i ask you a big favour, if i send you £1 can you invest it for me like that? you can send me the £1,000 after the 48 months, and if successful, i'll consider letting you invest maybe £2k of my money and if you can turn it into turn it into 2 million in the 48 months, you can keep 1 million.

does that sound fair?

$14,000 dollars cash TODAY. Screw 4 years from now... the dollar may not be worth anything in 4 years.

Doesn't that sound like an Alanis Morrisette song. "Black fly in the Chardonnay"

Haha.

Re: Okay...if you had to choose between $14,000 cash today, or a 1 in 2 chance for $2,000,000.00 in 4 years, which do you choose?
I take it youre on NZT-48 smart pill as seen in the movie limitless.

Can i ask you a big favour, if i send you £1 can you invest it for me like that? you can send me the £1,000 after the 48 months, and if successful, i'll consider letting you invest maybe £2k of my money and if you can turn it into turn it into 2 million in the 48 months, you can keep 1 million.

does that sound fair?

I like a challenge give me £100.00 lets see whats possible, as long as your willing to take the risk and lose the lot at any stage during the 48 months.

PS. £100.00 increasing by 15% per month would give you £81,940.07 at month 49 not a bad return if your willing to take the risk.

I will even deposit the entire investment fund (if theres anything in the pot) at the end of each month in your Bank account so you can decide if you want to stop or proceed to the next month by re-depositing it back into my account, that way you get verifiable results and can bottle out at any time.

Carry on

I would take the £14k and would look to increase that money every month by 15% via investments, by the time the £2 million 50/50 chance comes around in 48 months time I would have £11.7 Million in the bank.

....and don't say gold based on past gains.....it's not consistent and annuity like as you have laid out.

Basically this guy just spewed some crap about about a non-existent annuity that NO ONE would give you at 15% interest. UBER BULLCRAP.

I just wanted to call him on it for posting BS.

Obviously you take the 1 in 2 chance at $2,000,000. The 1 in 2 chance is wirth (2million / 2)= $1,000,000. You are trading $1,000,000 for $14,000.
