Poll: Million Dollars today or 1 penny doubled for 30 days?
That's a no brainer - take the million dollars today.
What's a penny? Or a dollar for that matter. What the hell are you talking about?
The penny doubled for 30 days would be more money.
I don't want to play, just show me the money!

If someone offered to give you 1 million dollars today, or 1 penny and then doubled it every day for 30 days (second day = 2 pennies, third day = 4, 8, 16,... ) which choice would be the wiser choice? Barring of course unforeseen accidents and acts of 'God'...

Was that on that show?

It is a curious thing that a lot of folks don't seem to pay much attention to, the whole exponential equation thingy.

I don't think it'd be quite that many pennies, but good point all the same. Another consideration however is that if they were actual copper pennies they would be worth considerably more than their face value...

I think I could figure out a way to convert them to some more usable form. ;-)

Make the million in pieces of paper with false promises on them vs actual copper pennies.

Similar to asking, if you wanta be a techknologically advanced race with atomic bombs, and stuff, with a 'moderate' growth rate.

Or,, be like a '3rd World' techkonology, with tin roofed huts, that breeds like rabbits, on fertility drugs.
