    What WOULDN'T You Do For $1,000,000? (683,313.69 pounds)

    So, what wouldn't you do for $1,000,000 (£683,313.69)?

    I don't know what I wouldn't do...

    lol!

    How many threads is that avatar issue going to come up in?

    Asides from the things that have been mentioned, I wouldn't give up my computer for a million.

    Or music. Or my sight. Or rollerblading, wakeboarding, or skiing.

    On the mushy side of me, I wouldn't break up with my girlfriend for a mil, either.

    I wouldn't remove both of my arms. I'd want at least another $500,000 to remove the second one.

    I'd give up my PC for a million ( not $). If I missed it, I'd go and get another one.

    I'd give up my PC for $1000. I only dream about being able to do that. Think about it - if you could sell your PC for the same amount as you bought it 2 years ago, you could buy a new PC that is 4 times as good for that same price. My PC cost AU$2000 but now would be worth only $500. If I could sell it for $2000, I'd get a free computer upgrade, when I would otherwise have had to spend $1500 of my own money.

    I wouldn't say no to a $1500 free computer upgrade!

    hmm

    I wouldn't kill anyone

    Any other crime would be case by case, I'd have to decide if the prison term was worth it.

    I wouldn't remove any of my appendages.

    I wouldn't give up my family.

    Anything permanent I would have to think about. but I would do just about anything temporary for a million. Whats 5 minutes of displeasure compared to a lifetime of financial freedom.

    Good ones! Music is definitely something that I wouldn't give up. I live on music. I also wouldn't give up my sight, sense of hearing, sense of taste, sense of smell....heck, I wouldn't give up any of the 5 senses!

    Hmmm...

    For a million dollars I would give up working for the rest of my life.



    I'd sell everything I owned except for [url=http://www.nachodog.com]nacho,/url].

    I wouldn't move to New York City if you paid me a million. Or Los Angeles. Or anywhere in Florida.

    hrmm

    Like Aspen says, it would depend case by case.
    I was offered $1000 to walk over hot ashes on a fire and 1500 to do it naked and put my butt on the flaming ash.....
    Did i do it for 1500, Hell no... but for 1Mil I could do some good reconstructive surgery and possibly some upgrades on the good 'ol @ss... come to think of it I had a ski go in the side of my thigh one time that could really use plastic surgery to kill the scar... why not get the *** and the thigh 'detailed' at the same time!
