The answer is here – but do give it a go before you look. So I’m in ‘Nam playing a game of Russian roulette just like in the film Deer Hunter – that stuff really happened you know. It was brutal. I’m obviously trying to up my chances of winning, not least because the alternative is death but also because the alternative is death. Here are the details: It turns out that my rather unlikely and somewhat anachronistic adversary is none other than chatty man Alan Carr! Underneath all that front, he’s pretty rock so I’d better be on my best game. Using a standard six chamber revolver, Chatty puts two bullets into adjacent chambers, spins the gun and points at his head and pulls the trigger. Nothing doing – he survives and passes the gun to me. I’m allowed to do whatever I like from the following three options:
- Spin the barrel again and then shoot.
- Shoot without doing anything to the barrel.
- Open the revolver, take the bullets out, replace them in any positions, spin and shoot.
What’s the best thing to do? Clearly in order to minimise the chances of diversifying my head. Key facts
- Russian roulette with a six chamber revolver
- Two bullets in adjacent chambers
- Chatty shoots first and survives.
Challenge To minimise his chances of dying, should I spin the barrel and shoot; just shoot; or reposition the bullets, spin and shoot? The Answer Drop us a line….
