Poll: Are you willing to get practically unlimited money to spend in exchange for 1 year of horrible life followed by death? (READ OP) (42 votes)

Yes, I will be willing to make this exchange given the below conditions listed 7%
No 93%

READ THE SITUATION BELOW...

Imagine you have received a huge amount of money which you can do practically anything possible in the real world and within logical, practical limits (YOUR own limits mind you, for example if you are not a gifted speaker you can't convince your fellow citizens to stir up a war or riot no matter what).

AT THE SAME TIME, you have suddenly came down with a strange and debilitating illness where:

- Your body cannot digest any food... EXCEPT for plain water, vitamin and mineral pills, and the worst tasting vegetables you have ever eaten. If you try to eat anything else you will spit or vomit it out in 5 seconds.

- You cannot have sex ever. It causes you great pain throughout your entire body if you even attempt, and you cannot achieve release even if you try further.

- You cannot entertain yourself. Anytime you have any bit of feelings of joy, excitement, fear, or fun, your whole body would be wracked with debilitating pain that stops you from focusing on what you are doing.

- NOTE: If you thrive on pain, you will find that nothing hurts you anymore instead.

- You will suffer this way until you die

- You have only ONE YEAR left to live

- There is NOTHING you nor anyone can do to stop your suffering and eventual death.

- You CANNOT commit suicide at all.

So would you want this situation or would you prefer your current life? If yes or no, explain why and describe how or what would you do in this situation.

Nah, I'm good. I suppose I could use the money for good but I know myself and I'll just use it selfishly. Then die a horrible death after an agonizing year.

I feel like the word "no" is putting it mildly. How about "Heck no, not in a million years"

What happens to all of the money after I die?

#12 Edited by GermanX (822 posts) - - Show Bio

@Penguin-Dust: sorry for the late reply. If you die, the money simply stops running in so no inheritance and any remaining money you received before you die will be taken back by the person who owns the funds.

Hypothetically you don't need to own that practically unlimited fortune to use it, someone can give it to you upon request.

That's the whole point of this thread, no way to get around to benefit yourself in anyway.

Sure why not.

One of my dream is to build an orphanges/school for orphans (because i watched to many sad animes), so with money i could build many of them.

One year of suffering and death would be worth it, i think.

I could probably fund some cancer cure research while im at it to.

Is the idea here that I would sacrifice my life and happiness for 1 year of unlimited funds to better the lives of my family, loved ones, poor people and so on?

Edit: Does the no sex thing apply to your mom as well?

Eh, not sure if you had read the Bible, but in the Gospel of John and in the Book of Isaiah (Chapter 53, a prophecy), its been implied that Jesus was considered ugly by his contemporaries.

You never thought that with unlimited money you don't have to spend it on yourself but on helping others who are suffering. That's the point of this thread, to sacrifice your well-being and life for the sake of others. Given your responses and the poll results mankind is doomed.

With unlimited money, inflation would go so high that money wouldn't even be worth the paper it was printed on, and the whole world's economy would crash. Do you want the world's economy to crash just so you can feel better about yourself? I guess that makes you the selfish one.

Its practically unlimited money, not unlimited money as in printing paper notes. Spread billions of dollars around the less fortunate like how Jesus feeds his followers with fish.

U mad? Accusing people of trolling with a non-provocative thread is just the same as labeling every other thread-maker a troll, and besides accusing people of trolling after you failed in an argument is simply the new trend of continuation of Godwin's Law. Guess someone was left pretty sorebutt after losing an argument about Goku.

@germanx: I never was upset. You bringing and being extremely clingy to the past won't help you here. Also I didn't loose the argument. Saitama beats Goku. It's the philosophy and ideology behind his entire character. Yes his best feats were planetary and not universal unlike Goku, but factual statements and lore trumps feats. Saitama is powerful but compared to someone like Goku he's laughable, but due to the lore and characterization. He stomps simply because he's Saitama. A character made to beat all of his opponents, no matter the cause.

lmao. Keep telling yourself that. The only reason why I even bothered to mention that shit media called DBZ/DBS was because it was pretty much the only thing I recalled interacting with you beyond a couple of posts which didn't even went into debating.

In any case, don't troll this thread like you did to DBZ.

I will keep telling myself that because it's simply true, and the best part about debating with people like you. IS when your argument starts making sense and their's doesn't, they start insulting you and state that the opposition is trolling when in reality they are too ignorant and mentally behind to keep up with what the real debaters are saying.

Yes, I have nothing else to say, since I pointed out someone's obvious hypocrisy and it went over his head. If Drax was here, he would have a buddy to relate to.
