Every person has a price tag. For some it's 10k $ and for some it is 1 billion $, but does not change the fact that given right sum of money every person will do anything, amirite?

Would you go blind without the possibility of ever having your sight back for a trillion dollars?

@Framie1 Would you go blind without the possibility of ever having your sight back for a trillion dollars?

You are adding a variable into equation that is simply not possible, creating logical fallacy that helps your mind cope with "why you would not".

If someone gave me trillion dollars, I would go blind instantly, because I would have enough money to fund the technology to restore my eysight and still have at least 1/8 of that trillion dollars left.

Yeah not necessarily. Every person draws the line somewhere.

@contextrip Yeah not necessarily. Every person draws the line somewhere.

Not true. You think you have a line, but once you are face to face with the temptation, that line can disappear pretty quickly

@404ChompyNotFound Not true. You think you have a line, but once you are face to face with the temptation, that line can disappear...

There are a lot of things I would never do for any amount of money. Maybe this is true for some people, but money isn't the most important thing to me.

Depends on what it is also

Allright, imagine I give you 100 billion $. What would you still not do?

Nothing that could prevent me from using it(life in prison, death) for starters

@Calumhj Nothing that could prevent me from using it(life in prison, death) for starters

So basically anything. Obviously it would not be something that would result in your death.

@404ChompyNotFound So basically anything. Obviously it would not be something that would result in your death.

Why are things that would send you to prison or kill you "basically anything"? There are so many things that you could do that result in neither of those, wtf??? Are you mentally stable?

What a stilted outlook on life.

You have my pity.

@Vindicare-jjl What a stilted outlook on life. You have my pity.

I would say cynical than stilted.

Can you argue it is not true? Think deep, at what price point would you really do anything and you will find it.

Nah man, I would never compromise my children's well-being for all the money in the world. Or commit murder. or harm someone else's child or pets. Not everything has a price.

A Taoist monk disagrees (not me just an example. I can be bought for cheap.)

Many people are indifferent to money. I've turned down high 6 figure jobs because they'd take away too much time from my family.

Your premise is just wrong. YOU would do anything for the right amount of money. This should give you pause to reflect on your life and what brought you to this mentality.

6 figure job is not the same as one time offer, is it?

Again, you add logical argument into the equation that has not place in it to help your mind cope with "why would you not do something".

But if I told you I will give you trillion dollars to shoot your dog, you say you would not do it? Imagine how much free time would you have to spend with your family after that.

Not really. For enough money I'd probably kick a puppy but I'm not killing my family if you give me a billion dollars.

@404ChompyNotFound Allright, keep telling yourself whatever makes you sleep at night, but even that has a pricetag.

? No it doesn't. I wouldn't have anything to even do with that money. If I could get everything free for the rest of my life, I'd still miss my family and probably kill myself out of guilt. There are prices besides money to consider ofc but still none to pay for that act. For enough money I'd probably commit suicide if my friends or family had cancer or something and needed the money. I'd probably pull the lever in the trolley problem so I'd kill to save two lives. Still not shooting my sister.

You can never be so sure what would you do until you get to that bridge.

Lot of people have mental ethical compass, but given the situation, they find it is not working as they expected. That is why term "passion crime" exists

The username is in the right genre but oh so very wrong

As most people have said, I don't think this is true. Not everyone is motivated by money.

Then what is your motiviation in life? Every motivation has an end goal, hence why it is motivation. And money is shortcut to that end goal.

To enjoy life. I don't need much to be happy. More money would make some things easier, but it also takes some of the gun away from doing things. If your only happiness comes from money, you'll never be happy.

Think about the couples that pay $200k to get pregnant with their own child. You think they could be offered $100 billion and would kill that child because life is all about money?

Are you saying you would outright kill your entire family for money

There's no amount of money you could give me to put a burning hot curling iron up my ass.

It's not true. The statement alludes that you prioritise money above all else. It only appertains to a certain type of person

Pretty simple mindset you got there. Congrats, mommy must be proud of you.

That's not true. I can think of a lot of things that I won't do no matter how much money I get for it.

@Tuggspeedmen I won't kill a child.

Allright, keep telling yourself whatever makes you sleep at night.

If you really do have a price for something like that, then recommend seeking help.

I am just saying worst things are ussually done by people who could never imaging doing them, but tempation/impulse makes them do it

So...you'd kill your own children for money. Good to know.
