Blind Guy Asks Strangers To Check His Winning Lottery Ticket. Watch What Happens…

As a society, we like to think that we look out for those in need, whether it be someone we know or a total stranger. Most people wouldn't take advantage of the most vulnerable members of our community...right? Or is it possible that honest people are truly much fewer and far between than we'd like to admit?

A YouTuber called Jahal set out to answer this question with a social experiment. The concept was simple: Pretending to be a blind man, he would visit two very different neighborhoods in Los Angeles and find out if the people there were more likely to be honest, or to take advantage of someone who couldn't really defend themselves. What he found is equal parts disturbing and uplifting, and proof that sometimes the most earnest and wonderful things can come from the most unlikely places. Check out his experiment in the photos and video below.

This is YouTuber Jag Singh.

On his YouTube channel, he goes by the name Johal. He's gotten thousands of subscribers by doing social experiments to test the limits of human compassion.

He performed the experiment in two different places.

He went to a wealthy part of town, and then to a poorer area of the Central Valley in California to see if the situations would differ.

He asked strangers the same question.

He held out a winning scratch-off lottery ticket (it was worth a prize of $500) and asked people to tell him what it said.
