50 strangers had a chance to win a free vacation — but only if they agreed on one place.

Would you rather go nowhere or fly free with some compromise?

That was the option JetBlue Airlines presented to 150 passengers on a flight bound for Phoenix from Boston. “Everyone who’s willing to participate has a chance to win one round-trip ticket to anywhere JetBlue flies,” the Captain told them as they hovered some 30,000 feet above the planet.

150 people. 97 different options. That’s a 9.354306 x 10-297 chance of everyone instinctively agreeing. Or, as explained to me by our brilliant Director of Intel, “that’s worse odds than if you put every planet in the universe in a bag, and picked one out, and it happened to be Earth.”

Which I think means the odds are pretty bad.
