A man watches a videotape. Seven days later, he's dead.

And no... it's not what you think.

Did the man do something/ not do something because he watched the tape that caused his death?
Was the tape something like "learn to jump from high buildings in seven days"? A video that teaches you something?
Or was it a movie?

If he had not seen the video, would he have died in the same amount of time? Or was the existence of the video enough to result in his death?
If it was a different video, would he have died?
Had anyone else seen the movie? Would they have likely suffered the same fate if they had?
Could the video just as easily have caused him to die six/eight days later?
If he had watched the video one day later, would he then have died? More likely in 6 days? 7 days?
