    OK, here's my thoughts...

    After reading many post about people "finding" a blackberry and should they keep it or turn it in... and from a healthy discussion from college days I wanted to repeat a very unscientific poll. As the OP I am not here to judge, just very curious how minds work.

    The situation:

    You're walking/driving/biking down the street and see a bank ATM spewing cash. Nobody is around, nobody is watching, just you and the machine, with cash coming out as you watch. What do you do?

    Immediately contact 911, and stand by until help arrives.

    Character is defined when you do the right thing when no one else can see you.

    Besides, on the premise, the ATM also video-records activity.

    I'd still stay away.

    Sadly, I've seen good people get in trouble, trying to do good deeds.

    Another reason why I let my CPR certification expire.

    I purposely left out the part about security surveillance inside virtually every ATM in the country...

    Let's just say if I knew I could get away with it, I would take the money and run.

    I have no qualms about taking money from a bank. The FDIC is in place for a very good reason.

    Oh who woulda called 911? You kidding me? Once you see months worth of money flying out of a bank machine, it's just instinct to take it. You can call 911, I'll be the guy running with $100 bills falling behind me

    I would've reported it. Now, if I was extremely poor and hungry.....my answer would probably be different.

    I know this is being posed as a hypothetical scenario...but Karma does exist; and it definitely does exact itself with equilibrium to bring things full circle. Never wpuld I take advantage of something like that.

    However circumstances; if dire enough... can make people do things they never even thought they would; or that they never thought they were capable of....just as with people who have or are willing to sever their own limbs to survive if need be...some resort to theft to survive.

    Is this a virtuous way to lead life? No. Is there any legit justification? No.
