What would you do?

Last night we had some friends come over. As we were gathered around the mistake I made for dessert we started talking about money and how we all wanted more. Ben asked, "what physical ailment would you live with for the rest of your life for a million dollars?" It was an interesting thought... it got out of hand eventually, but it was interesting.

One friend said he would willingly have his legs amputated for a million dollars. No one else was down for that one. As our list got more extreme, it seemed a million dollars wasn't quite enough for most things. After all, you want to be able to enjoy your million dollars, right? Here are a few things that were mentioned: walk with a limp forever, let someone shoot you in the knee (remember, once your knee is screwed up, it's always screwed up), throw up every hour 24/7, make out with a member of the same sex, let Jack Black be your roommate - he's with you all the time, be deaf in one ear, be blind in one eye, and finally... would you gnaw your own toe off and eat it for a million dollars? No thank you.

Tanner tried convincing me that throwing up every hour wouldn't be that bad. I mentioned that your teeth and throat would be ruined, but he thought that plastic surgery could surely fix all that... Tanner also does a great Jack Black impersonation.

So, what would you do for a million dollars.... or what wouldn't you do?
