    Default Hypothetical Noodles

    A large table is piled high with a variety of plain, white, boiled noodles. You are offered $100 if you eat them all within the next five hours. Do you take the challenge?

    I'd do it for free.

    Might even pay $100.

    I'd be worried the noodles were poisoned or this set up was some kind of trickery.

    I was just thinking how nasty that challenge would be.

    I would consider whether I could eat that many noodles in the allotted time, and then realize that my dignity is worth much more than $100, and refuse out of principle.

    Which then begs the question, "Why are you getting paid to do something you might even pay to do?".

    Someone cooked too many noodles and is frantic to get rid of them with no evidence before someone finds out they goofed.

    volume of the pile? height and circumference? I'm just trying to get a feel for how big the pile of noodles is and if it's physically possible to consume them.

    The table is five feet by three feet. The highest point of the noodles is two feet high and it gradually slopes to the edge of the table.

    More spaghetti than anything else, but every shape you've seen is also mixed in. None of the multicolored noodles, though.

    I want to know more about this "someone".

    Then the $5 incentive doesn't solve all of my problems.

    First off he might also have an accomplice which would negate the problems solved by him being in the room.

    Also I'm worried about what he did when he prepared the food and what he might do after I've already eaten the food.

    What could my mum do if I'm poisoned and she's being restrained by the person and the person's accomplices? Maybe the person's plan was to chop me into little bits while my mum watched.

    I might do it if my mum watches her buy and prepare the food, and my mum gets to choose where the food is stored before it's prepared and served.

    But can I trust my mum to be aware of what this person did to the food? Can I trust this person to be alone with my mum as the food is prepared? Can I be sure my mum isn't colluding with this person?

    Then the $5 incentive doesn't solve all of my problems.

    First off he might also have an accomplice which would negate the problems solved by him being in the room.

    Also I'm worried about what he did when he prepared the food and what he might do after I've already eaten the food.

    Nowhere in this thread have I referred to my mother as male.

    No way; being sick isn't worth the $100 to me; maybe if the reward was over the medical care I'd consider it like $100,000.

    No, I probably wouldn't be successful at it anyway. I don't think I could possibly eat that much in one sitting and like Maritsa said, getting sick isn't worth the money.

    I'd get sick for it, provided that I didn't die, but the amount of noodles in this question is physically impossible to consume in the given time without being allowed to vomit.
