For $100,000,000 would you punch a silverback gorilla straight in the face?

    That's ALL you have to do.

    -The gorilla is in a completely flat, yet very large enclosure. There is only one door out, and the gorilla is in the middle of said enclosure.
    -The gorilla is VERY LARGE. If it was with it pack of gorillas, it would easily be the dominant male.

    -The enclosure would look something like this:


    -If the gorilla responds and decides to attack you, you can only use your bare fists to defend yourself. No weapons of any sort or anything that can be used as a weapon such as a rock.
    -The gorilla is completely unrestrained and NOBODY will be allowed to attempt to save you should you be in trouble.
    -There is no body of water or anything similar in the enclosure.
    -The money is not taxed.

    It could probably eviscerate people with bare hands.

    Sure. You'd just have to make sure you dropped it in one hit...

    I clicked "yeah" just because it would make an incredible story if I survived, and if I didn't survive, then "oh well".

    If I get paid whether or not I survive, then yeah. I'd have a very well off family.

    I'd definitely punch a gorilla in the face before I'd punch this beast!

  9. I'm not sure I'd feel right about punching a gorilla in the face, but I think that since there's no say about how hard you have to hit it, there's a chance you could just not hurt it and maybe it wouldn't attack you for touching its face. Lol.

    This^ and it would be a verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry light punch.
  11. Please put this in your video will. Please! It'll make brains melt, especially if you don't die that way.
  12. Of what use is a fortune to the dead?
  13. There was no mention of vehicles being excluded. I'd hit that mofo with a drive by on a motocross bike.

    the gorilla in question would kill/incapacitate you for getting that close, being an alpha male. IMHO

    so, that's a bet i can't take.

    I would use an open hand and come up under his jaw. After I hit him, I would scream at the top of my lungs and act like a gorilla for a few minutes to make him think I was the dominant alpha, then run like crazy.
  18. Riverdance up, nail him in the teeth, and riverdance out. He'd be too flabbergasted to react. Easy money.

    Hard to spend all that money when you're dead.

    Hell yeah.
    The one way to scare off animals is stand your ground.

    So if you punch it in the face, then scream, chances are he'll back off!

    If not, you died in the most badass way possible.
