1. If you came into exactly $50,000,000,000.00 dollars (50 billion for those that can't figure it out) and an organization approached you saying that with EXACTLY 50 billion dollars they would be able to cure AIDS/HIV or rid the world of hunger would you do it? There are no special stipulations. Just this straight question.

2. If you could rid the world of one or the other (AIDS/HIV or World Hunger) with the knowledge that if you did one you could never rid the world of the other would you do it and which one would you do?

I'd pick elminating World Hunger.

HIV/AIDS can be prevented with self control. World hunger has a lot to do with climate (political and atmospheric).

1. Heh, I'd cheat - take the 50 billion and let it earn interest for a month (heck, even a week). Then give away the original 50 billion and live off the interest.

2. ditto to what dip said.

a) have you been reading Wired?

b) Answers: 1) I would give the money to end hunger.
2) Yes, I would and it would be hunger.

It is a simple matter of numbers.
