    ...the important thing is to find out what it is".

    --Pablo Escobar--

    Question 1) What is the minimum amount of money you would cut off the tip of your little finger off for (naughty Triad style)?

    I don't have a price. I was the stubbornest child born to Generation X. I'm not cutting my damn finger off. You can't make me.

    Not even if your price was to have Trump removed from office?

    EDIT: I guess I worded the question wrong (this is why I shouldn't create threads when drunk). Not just monetary price.

    £250000 would set me up nicely. Not enough to retire forever and considering it's the tip of my little finger it ain't worth that much, I think I'd survive.

    Touché. Yeah, I'd cut my finger off for that.

    No monetary price is important considering the general mercenary nature of most people.



    That being said, as a Brit, even I'd consider giving up the tip of my little finger for the removal of Trump.

    There is a limit my good man.


    If I have to drop to £200k I at least expect to be wined and dined first

    Let's see, I live in America, so at minimum I'll need $10 million to cover the medical expenses...

    I want to say something ridiculous like one million dollars but if you had like five thousand right in front of me I'd probably go for it.

    $5,000,000 plus medical expenses.

    I don't place great value on money so it's a low price. Things that cannot be bought would be higher prices.

    What about romance?

    Or would you say that although you would do anything for love, you won't do that?

    I play the piano. I would really miss that finger.

    So my price is: a lifetime subscription to Spotify.

    What are we calling tip? Like the fingernail portion? If it's that, I bet I could still play the piano. Assuming, that's what we mean by tip, here are my demands: number one, I would need full medical coverage for the injury. There is to be no cutting off the tip and then being dumped on the side of the road. It's done in a hospital, by an expert, with full treatment assured. Monetary. I mean, I would ideally charge a ton, of course, but if it came down to the lowest bidder gets the money I would go as low as $10,000. I think. I mean, when the finger's on the table and the knife is raised, things change.

    Now, if it's whole finger, boy, I don't know. What's the state of prosthesis these days? I could still play the drums, right? But I write a lot and I have a blog. I would need to seriously investigate the current available technology in terms of "speech-to-text" applications.

    I'd pay to have mine cut off. The rest of you are *******.

    Give me $10,000 and I'll do it.

    You cover your own travel, of course.

    I value my finger a lot more than 3,000 bucks, chief. I'll break it for 3, but I'll catch it and cut it off for 10.

    two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... and also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.
