Poll: Would you permanently stay in whatever city/town you live in now for a million dollars? (54 votes)

Yes 52%
No, but maybe for a higher price 22%
No, not for any price 26%
Results 0%

Here's the scenario: If you say yes, you get $1,000,000 dollars (if you're not American, convert that to whatever that is in your currency, ex if you're British that's 780800 pounds), but you can never leave the city limits of whatever city/town you live in now, not even for a short trip. You're there for life.

Would you accept the deal, and if no, would you say yes for a higher price?

IMO: No, not for any price. I love traveling way too much to be bound to any single location for life.

For a higher price like hundreds of millions, sure. Id basically make my area in to one of the best locations on earth via a ton of money put in to it and basically own the city

Hell I'd live in Mayberry for a million dollars as long as they had Wifi and Amazon.

yeah no I wouldn't be able to survive since my town doesn't have much in terms of businesses and I wouldn't be able to date cause there aren't many girls my age

Oh man, that'd nearly defeat all the purpose of having a million dollars in the first place.

Not like I can leave here permanently without that million. The only loss is short trips, which I don't do that often anyway. So, I guess being here with a million could outweigh being here without it.

No way. I mean, I'd live here for sure. But not being able to leave is too far, there is FA to do here.

Part of me is like nah...but tbh if someone walked up to me with a legit Mill, with this proposal, I’d probably do it. A mill might be much to some, but to me that’s still a lot of money to turn your nose up at

I don't even live in a town. Would I be confined to the tiny, super rural neighborhood I am in now? The only business for several miles is a gas station. I need to go to a town just to get food...

The average cost of a house in my city is 500-800k, so I’d need a bit more.

Maybe if I were limited to just my province since I am not a big traveler. But not being able to leave my city is to far.

No. A million dollars in reality is not a lot of money. And to be held hostage in your city (I live in Miami, btw) it isn’t worth it.
