What would it take for you to risk it all? What would it take for you to put it all on the line and roll the dice?
It's surprising. Most humans put very little thought into the consequences of their actions. We tend to run on instinct alone at times. Giving little to no thought about what will happen after. And thinking after the fact, is way too late. It's a very dangerous why to go through life.
Even those that are relatively level headed, will make rash and surprising decisions at times. Putting their entire lives at risk, not to mention the lives of others, over something that most would consider insignificant and foolish, if not just down right stupid.
I'm not sure our brains work the way they should.
