#11. Mentally Challenged
It’s time for our next hyperthetical. I can’t stand having / seeing that horrible picture of Angina on my front page, so I’m gonna put myself out of that misery by posting another fun-albeit-insane question from the mix. This situation is pretty much straightforward, but still as audacious as the last.
You are presented with a strange challenge:
Someone dares you to count backward from 300 to 0. If you succeed at this simple request, you will be given $25,000 in cash. If you misspeak, get any digit incorrect, or make any mistake whatsoever, you will immediately be doused with gasoline and burned alive.
Do you attempt this challenge?

300 . . . 299 . . . 298. . .
