My question is, What do you think about this video Ax?

I honestly don't know a whole lot about it. The Next thing I know, someone will be telling me it's fake.


Assuming that's not the case: I think it's tragic that a young man lost his life, I really feel sorry for his family having to deal with such a senseless awful tragedy.

I'm almost wondering if there's more to this than meets the eye, perhaps some kind of pact between them two. A part of me was wondered if the kid actually wanted to die and she was more than happy to oblige.

They showed video clips and pictures of them prior and he seemed like a pretty happy go lucky guy, at least on the outside. So that just brings me back to believing it's pure stupidity.

I understand that people are in fact that stupid, but it's mind-boggling to think both of them could have been that stupid.

Apparently she was on record claiming she I was scared and didn't want to do it. I think that might be an act, either way, I really don't think he had to try all that hard in order to convince her to pull the trigger. Under the circumstances, I would have to guess she is probably a psycho famewhore.

I guess she was pregnant, I assume at some point she'll be in possession of her child and that's a real scary thought.

Don't think she was pregnant.

BTW, googled it and yes it appears real as it's pretty well covered.

It's also old and settled. Happened in 2017.

She pled guilty. They went pretty lenient on her.

Here is how it turned out.

Math puzzle time!

You have a six-chamber revolver and wish to play Russian roulette with one other person. It is desired that each have a 50% chance of winning. Per the etiquette of Russian roulette, the chamber must be spun between turns. With no randomizing allowed (other than the chamber of the revolver), what rules will ensure the desired 50/50 outcome?



I'm assuming the cylinder of revolver must be spun before each person play?

The probability of one surviving each trigger is 5/6 or 83.3 %, spinning the cylinder each time. However, if you don't spin the cylinder and continue the second trigger allows a 4/5 or 80% of staying alive. The third time without spinning is 3/4 or 75%.

Each player would have to take turn pulling the trigger 3 times, without spinning in between, to have a 50% of winning or surviving against a second player. If the first player survives, the cylinder is spun for the second player.

1-(5/6x4/5x3/4) = 1/2= 50%

Forgive me for the simplistic answer but wouldn't putting 3 bullets in the six Chambers create the desired 50% chance of winning

If you use 3 bullets for the 6 chambers it wouldn't be Russian roulette in a traditional sense. It's like playing craps with one dice.

I forgot to say that there is one bullet only.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Given the parameters, I think this assumes I never had, but given the knowledge I have given the fact I did have it, I don't think there is much to worry about for a slightly overweight but relatively healthy 41 year old. Even if I didn't get it in real life, leading up to it my assumption was that I a) eventually would get it and b) I would get over it. I got it on a Saturday and was symptom free by Wednesday. I felt almost 100% on Monday, so well in fact, I was denied at 2 places for a test, but had a brief relapse on Tuesday due to stopping taking Tylenol Monday evening. I did not get my test results until after I was 100%. Under most circumstances, in a non- COVID world I would have gone to work that Monday
