    Arm or 1 million dollars?

    Me and a friend were debating would you sacrifice an arm (of your choice) for a million dollars cash?
    There are no strings attached to money. An arm for a million dollars, that's it.
    Would you take the deal? Thoughts?

    You'd have to up that massively, before I'd do it 10 mills? 20? Perhaps .. I don't know.

    It would have to be in the billions before I would even consider it, but, I think I would always choose arm over money.

    Arm. I can make a million dollars with enough hard work. I can't grow an arm back.

    I have no idea, but if a prosthetic arm would cost less than 500k Dollars, than probably, yes, as long as the arm can do what the original could.

    Still... I think I'd like to keep my arm.

    Ummmmm no, I stand to make more than 1 million dollars in my lifetime with my career choice. And I kinda need my arm for that career choice.

    If it was an amount that I could live comfortably for the rest of my life without having to pennypinch? maybe.... but probably still no


    Awesome sig thanks to i4ni

    haha, so funny side note. At this point in the voting, it is more one sided then the "would you castrate yourself to live longer" poll

    With prosthetics as they are now? not a chance in hell.
    Even if the money was in the billions, as of now still no.
    in a few decades of progress for prosthetics. Possibly.

    My arm is worth a lot more than 1 million dollars, especially considering 1 million dollars isn't that much these days.

  16. #16
    hell no, I need these arms!

    At least not until we've got bionic arm replacements that cost under 1 million dollars...

    no thanks, i rather like having 2 arms. As long as i'm comfortably fed and sheltered no amount of money could convince me to part with any part of my anatomy. But then i dont really have an obsession with money and/or life's luxuries.

    I dont know, I would have to think about it. between my work and that money, we'd be set for life. make it 5 mil and you can take it!

    1 million dollars is nothing nowadays.
