Poll: What would you do for $100 million dollars?
Sarah THE chicken · 16 years, 11 months ago
Not to sound too materialistic or anything..but for somebody who has lived their short life without any kind of money...I would be willing to do quite a bit for that kind of security, and stability...

You didn't say if that were US dollars, $100,000,000 Canadian would only merit jay walking.

Yeah,$75,000,000 USD (exchange rate as of March 3, 2004) wouldn't be worth it at all. You need that extra $25,000,000 to really push you beyond jay walking.

i would be willing to anything comfortable, enjoyable, or spiritually rewarding for $100,000,000.
no questions asked.

While I really would like that kind of security...I am relatively comfortable where I am at the moment...well, comfortable enough for a student with no job anyway. If I had that much money would I be motivated to do anything meaningful with my life? Or would it allow me to have more time to spend meaningfully? It all depends. However, had I the chance to get the money by doing something that would allow me to live with myself afterwards...I don't think I'd turn it down. I'm sure I could choose to use the money wisely, take care of my needs and my family's needs, help out my friends and give some to charity, and spend the rest of my life doing something really worthwhile, whether it made more money or not.

I would not want to do anything illegal because it wouldn't be worth getting caught. I woudn't want to do anything sexual because of pregnancy/disease risks and because I'm all into the whole sex-only-if-you-love-them thing. And immoral, no way, because I wouldn't want to hurt people. I would however, do something outrageous or daring or just plain weird or embarrassing. Like:
1. eating bugs
2. wearing a chicken suit to class
3. pretending I was the Queen of Alberta and only answering to "your majesty" from grocery checkout people and other strangers
4. calling random people in the phonebook and asking them how they felt about lard (but only once, i.e. no harrassment)
5. putting a stuffed cat in the road in front of Jian's car so he'd run over it, and then crying in a horrified voice, "You killed my cat!!"

you should definitely go for #5 but do it in a chicken suit and some bugs in your mouth - that would easily be worth 100M ;-D

Sexual is a no brainer. For that price I'm a whore. I'd probably be ok with illegal as long as it wasn't immoral in my mind. Immoral is where I would draw the line, but it is MY morality we're talking about not some supreme court mandated local standard.

I thought of the same story.
and also Geoff Berner's song, "Everyone's gotta be a Prostitute Sometimes".
.oO Don't ya know, that the 20 dollar whores look down their noses at the 10 dollar whores, who look down their noses at the 5 dollar whores, who look down on the volunteers, 'cause they ain't got careers. Oo.

I'm sure I'd have a line somewhere... but.... I'd pretty much do anything for that much money.
Obviously, there are some things I would never do.

". . .who determines the definitions?"
Yep, what is illegal, immoral or even sexual in one society may not be so in another.
I would do most illegal, immoral or sexual things for that sort of money, but not all.
If I was assured of 100 million dollars if my actions ensured the felling of whatever rainforests are left, or more children are exported for child sex slavery, or some sports shoe marketeer could increase profits by operating more factories at starvation wages and with greater risk of death, the decision would be more difficult.
100 million dollars, you say? A serious temptation, but then I like to be able to sleep. There are limits.

... which happens to be an awesome song by John McCutcheon (inevitable musical reference. Y0e.)

Is this why you were singing the Eddie Money song??
