Say there was a social experiment where 100 people were locked in separate rooms and told the person that counted the highest would receive a million dollars.

How long would people stay for and how high do you think they'd count?

Variation 1: if you messed up counting, you would have to start over

Variation 2: There were no clocks in the rooms

@blueberry Has this been done actually? I’d be interested to read the paper.

@ilyess I doubt it but it’s a social experiment I’m constantly thinking about
