    I'd keep my arm, I'm not Rik Allen and $1m is a pretty small time amount of money in the grand scheme of things!

    Keep the arm, no question. Money is good but you only live once and 1 million dollars is a small sum of money for a much larger price to pay.

    I'll pass on selling my arm. That number would have to be in the billions for me to even consider it.

    There are no strings attached to money. An arm for a million dollars, that's it.
    Would you take the deal? Thoughts?
    Don't see how you can have a debate on this. Someone who'd trade an arm for cash is overcompensating for something.

    This is like the chop your balls off for longer life thread, and just as insane. $1m is nothing to deal with what you have to go through when you no longer have 2 arms.

    10 million yes, a million no.

    arm, 1 million, seems like a lot, but you can't really "live the life" with just a million dollars. Plus I think having both my arms is really important.

    I wouldn't sell any of my arms for all the money in the world. Unless I could buy some super enhanced cybernetic arm for all the money

    I play guitar and fap with my arms. Much better uses than $1M.

    Sorry, 1 million dollars isn't even that hard to make. Note I am not saying I, personally, will ever be smart enough to do it, but these days that's within the realm of "feasible with effort and planning".

    Replacing an arm is not.

    How much is a fully functional robotic arm? I bet more than that. Then again, not before I'm so old I'm literally falling apart.

    Uhh yeah, no. You couldn't find enough money/ wealth in the world to make me want to give up an arm, let alone anything on my person.

    Which arm? i could get by on one arm and everyone is acting like you cant invest the money to make more. It takes money to make money and if it was my left arm then I'd seriously think about it. Probably not because I've thought about removing my right ankle which is almost beyond repair, but I heard from someone I know that the phantom pains can be worse than if the appendage is still there. Id still think about it.
    Edit: Didnt vote because there is no maybe

    $1 million dollars.

    I could live with one arm.

    Yeah, expect if you die from removing said arm, there really isn't a point in obtaining a rather pitiful amount of money given what you're sacrificing, right? Removing a limb is pretty life threatening as is.

    A leg maybe as there many ways to help you with walking if you got money, an arm on the other hand can't be replaced yet.

    I wonder what's the cost of a good, top-notch, latest technology enhanced artificial limb full of various quality-of-life stuff. Let's call this price 'x'. I'd sell my arm for let's say... 10 * x. Or wait, make it 50 * x.

    i would rather keep my arm. 1 million dollars would be nice but i wouldnt trade any body part for any amount of money

    lol, that reminded me of:
    Man to woman: Would you sleep with me for one million dollars?
    Woman: Sure.
    Man: How about for ten dollars?
    Woman: What do you think I am?
    Man: We've already established what you are. All we're doing is bargaining about price.
    Did you say it on purpose, or you're actually trying to pick a sweet spot for how much your arm is worth?
