Wonder how many kids'll use it as drug/beer money.
Or pizza.
2002-10-04 07:02:35 PM  
I'm guessing most kids will spend it on food.

Brilliant lesson being taught...

That's all.
2002-10-04 07:06:28 PM  
That'll get me an 1/8th and a pizza. That's all I need.

What they'll say they used it for: gave to charity...bought homeless person food...donated to woman's shelter

What they actually used it for:

"I'm a student here! Really!"

Blaze a 50!

I'm surprised there isn't a stipulation that specifies they have to become addicted to cigarettes first to receive the $$$.

Wow, a dozen school girls? It's like prostitution without the sex.

But I hear your money goes further in Thailand - a child prostitute and a mule of your choice.

I get around 1200 dollars a semester from my college.

They give me so much money for my grant, whatever is left, I get to keep. After tuition, books, etc.. i have between 1000-1200 to spend however i want.

If you were one of the students randomly given $50, you can spend it however you like, but you have to report back and tell the school what you did with it. As of this morning, no one has reported using their money for pizza, beer, or weed. I think that people will generally do responsible or charitable things with the money. Because it's an unusual thing and because people will want to know how the money was used, people will feel some pressure to do something with it that they can tell people about.

The real question is this. If Joe Student finds $50 and no one he has it, and no one knows how he spends it, would he still do something noble with the money? I doubt it.

How do you think I paid for this Total Fark account?
2002-10-04 07:27:47 PM  
Man I wish I were the weed dealer on that campus. I bet I would have made around $5000 today, give or take.

Just pretend that picture actually showed up. It was really funny, honestly.

I'm gonna go kill some kittens.

Screw all of that nice shiat...

I wonder how much beer I can buy with 50 bones down there.
2002-10-04 09:05:04 PM  
beer, potp pand hookers. At least I'm not BullShhting you.
2002-10-04 09:31:28 PM  
"...thankyou kindly. I used the $50 to pay rent." (after first blowing MY $50 on beer, pizza, & weed !!)
2002-10-04 09:52:48 PM  
Beer and pizza.

"What I did with my free $50.

1/ Went out to the bar with friends, drinks on me all night.
2/ Paid for a cab back to dorms
3/ Bought 50 packs of ramen noodles with the leftover cash - food for almost 3 weeks!"

Assuming you're somewhere the legal drinking age is under that of freshers, beer isn't astronomically expensive, yet extra-cheap ramen has actually penetrated. Somewhere... like Wales.

I bet the weed man did get pretty busy around the time of this experiment.
