Okay, imagine that for some crime you've been sentenced to 35 years in prison.
A month after you arrive in prison, you are contacted by a CIA agent, who wants to make a deal with you. The deal is this: You consent to a series of highly dangerous experiments. A test would be administered every Sunday afternoon. For every test that you participate in and survive, you get one year taken off of your sentence. You get to choose when to not participate any further, and if you do, all the tests that you've already gone through and survived will still count as years taken off your sentence.

Would you participate? If so, how many tests would you submit to before stopping (assuming you survived that long)?

What kind of tests?

Tests to see if certain drugs are safe at certain dosages, tests to see how alcohol in the bloodstream affects certain drugs, etc.

Personally, I'd keep doing it until my sentence was bearably small. Then I'd stop, since a fatal accident could destroy all my gains.

WARNING WARNING.
Suplying a answer to this question will give an observer a picture of you.
Like you would not believe.
I suspect foul play and I don't like it.
Or its a question to think about the cruelties animals are put through in laboratories.
They can't consent , they have been put in a jail, and they undergo tests.
The broadness of your question/scenario the non straightforwardness. Screams this out.
If the milks sour . I ain't the kind of pussyy to drink it. So my answer is.

I wouldn't be in jail because I don't break no laws. If I was I would do my time because I don't and have never done drugs ever. Thanks.

No, this isn't a secret plot to psychologically evaluate everyone who gives an answer.
So you wouldn't submit to any tests?

It sounds like there might be some LSD involved in these experiments. Sign me up. I'm not actually in prison, but maybe we can prorate my nest egg of freedom for when the groovy psychosis kicks in a murderous rampage.
