Here's a fun question for everyone. No calculators until you answer the question and go with your first choice:
If you are offered a job with two different pay choices for the exact same work, which would you take?
1. You get paid $250,000 a month (30 day period)
2. You get paid a penny on the first day and on day 2 it doubles to 2 pennies, day 3 it doubles again to 4 pennies and so on until the 30th day. After that you will get paid a penny again on day 1 of next month and it doubles again until 30th day.

Which payment offer will you take?

Sounds like Math question, I'll pass.

that's an old riddle, and given the $5m+ difference between the two amounts, you're better off with the latter option.

The first option. Since there is no penny you'd be paying me nothing for the 2nd one, regardless of what is actually worth

A riddle older than peeing standing up. The second one will clearly give you more money, because it's 2^30 pennies. Lots of people dont really see thepower of exponential numbers.

It's obviously the second option. How about this for a riddle? A rich person doesn't have a lot of it, a poor person has plently of it, and when you die you take it with you. What is it?

It's nothing. Nothing, nothing, nothing. Try again.

@GameLord08 Correct! It wasn't hard, but I was the only one to figure it out in my class without already knowing the answer.

Since everyone knows the answer, the topic should be locked or just become a riddle thread.

The first option, because otherwise I would punch my boss in the face for giving me a penny for a full days work. I don't care how exponential it gets, I WORKED 12 HOURS ON MY FIRST DAY!!!!

I'm pretty sure I think I'm funnier than I really am.
