I'm trying to find a post I read that gave the probability of what would happen were every person on earth to play russian roulette one time every day until every person on earth was killed. Anyone know where this was posted?

After about 36 billion plays were made, everyone would be dead. Heh. Try using Google to search the forums or the archive server.

You want to know when 6,000,000,000*(5/6)^x = 1, to know when there will be one survivor left. This comes out to be 124 days.
