50 now or 1,000 in ten years?

Are you focused on short term or long term cash? Suppose you were offered the following choice (with a rock solid government-backed guarantee that provided youre still alive youll get the cash).

If the alternative was 1,000 in ten years time...select the FIRST youd be willing to take, (ie if youd be willing to take 250 rather than wait for 1,000 select that even though obviously 750 would be better).

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
