Default What would you do for a million quid?

Seriously?

If someone had a million quid in cash for you and asked you to do something for it, how far would you go?

My range starts at letting Heidi Klum play with my balls down to some things I wouldn't be proud of.

What would you do? Anything disgusting?

I think the more appropriate question is what you would not do. I wouldn't take a million quid to stay in jail for 20 years.

Trust me, this question is good. Wait and see how many people think a million isn't worth doing stuff for.

Good question that, the things I would not do might be few and far between.

If I got a million quid I would leave the pit tomorrow, thats a pretty big motivator.

With the dog thing does every one know or is it on the QT and a personal shame?

Knowing some of the posters, I think the dog should get a million quid.

A collie is proper dog size, not like a bloody Yorkshire terrier or other such rat.

Did you see the UK TV programme written by Charlie Brooker (who really is one sick puppy) about a Prime Minister who had to shag a pig to keep a much-loved princess alive? Part of his Black Mirror series.


He may be old now, but one million would be enough to do Robert Redford.
