...apparently, I can't even process ordinary 'karmic' assumptions!

shocks me. My personal answer for all 3 questions is $0...because they're situational. Certainly very low threshholds in most situations.

Even taking each question in a spirit of, "How much $ if you otherwise truly don't feel like doing it in the imaginary situation?" my answer is surely less than a hundred in each case.

The article (interesting in itself, for a skim) adds some explanatory notes on the survey -- which if anything make popular answers more shocking. Hypothetical questions are 98% about (self-)signaling, but still.

People are crazy, the world is mad!
