As the 100,000th customer of a movie theatre, Mr. A wins a prize of $100. Meanwhile, down the block, Mr. B is standing just behind another theatre’s one-millionth customer. That lucky patron wins $1,000, while Mr. B collects a consolation prize of $150. Would you rather be Mr. A or Mr. B? (please vote in upper right corner of page...please no gender jokes. If you are female, pretend it is Ms. A and Ms. B that you are trying to decide between)
