    Re: Hypothetical: $100 Game

    I'm not particularly interested in screwing over someone else, nor am I desperately in need of any amount of money between 1 and 100 dollars. I would either split it 50/50, being completely fair, or give the whole thing to the other person if they really needed it. Or if I wanted them to owe me a favor... If I were person B, I would probably throw away 30 bucks in anger over someone else trying to screw me to get 70.

    But I'm willing to bet that you wouldn't sneeze at $40 to keep me from getting $60.

    That could backfire on me, but remember, I won the coin toss.

    I probably would. My sense of fairness says that you should offer me at least half. If you are not willing to do so, then I find little reason to let you benefit with any money. Maybe next time such a situation comes up, you will choose to do what most people would consider fair.

    The amount of money in question here really does make a difference though. If it were a higher amount, then it would change the game, since $40 is an insignificant amount to most Americans. If you are talking about $400 or $4000 or higher amounts though, then it would come down to economic need vs the need to try to teach a lesson in fairness. At higher amounts, especially in this economy, most Americans would have to consider their own finances.

    Of course, honestly this could be considered a game of chance and be subject to tax laws, so it is also possible that at $600, you could be subject to taxes (depends on how the IRS would look at the situation) while I wouldn't at getting only $400. Plus, in significantly higher amounts, taxes on the money could cause a person to jump up in their respective tax brackets, which could lead an economically savvy person to go for a smaller piece of the pie in order to avoid a higher tax bracket if it is an issue.

    I would reject it without even blinking. The money's too low of an amount for me to allow someone to be a greedy dick.

    Hell, if I didn't like the person making the offer for whatever reason, I'd reject any offer that didn't give me $99 just to be a dickhead myself.
