What Would You Be Willing to do to Get a Bunch of Money?
What would you do to strike it rich? So far you haven’t managed to win the big jackpot even though you faithfully buy your tickets for every lottery drawing. So what would you be willing to do if you were offered a billion, a million or even ten thousand dollars?
According to the New York Daily News there is a new survey showing what people would do for a billion dollars. Can you believe six percent of people say they would murder someone for one billion dollars? I hope I don’t know any of those people. Men are more than twice as likely as women to take the deal.
Some of the people that responded to the survey would commit arson, treason, armed robbery, mug someone, or help someone kill themselves. I wonder if those people would be able to live with themselves afterward. I've heard people say silly things like they'd rather burn their house down rather than clean it but I think they were kidding.
About one-fourth of the respondents to the survey said they would pose nude for a magazine to get the big bucks. Keep in mind that those photos live on forever, probably way longer than that money would last.
Some of the other crazy things people said they would do for big bucks: fake their own death, kick a puppy (horrible people), commit credit card fraud, punch a stranger in the face, enter into a fake marriage, steal a street sign or flash a stranger.
