Would you do a year in prison for $250,000?
What price do we put on our freedom? Would the money really be worth it?
I guess it would depend on the prison. It would have to be a minimum-security prison in either Southern California, Florida, or possibly Arizona. You know, the kind of place where the white-collar criminal and crooked politicians are sent. Must have at least a 9-hole golf course and spa with hot tub. Also cable TV and high-speed internet.
I would go if it were the same conditions described by buffalo49. Also, I would have to be guaranteed my day job back when I "got out" a year later.
Never! I hate such money. I believe to earn honestly without any cheating. Money is not more than respect for us. Independence is the best thing to live for. We are honest and worthy for our parents so i don't like such money that put us away from our lovely parents and family.
I would never spend a year of my life in prison for $250,000 - or really for any price. Pragmatically, it makes no sense because then it would be on your record and would follow you around for the rest of your life. $250,000 could be gone in a day.
Honestly, on some days a year in prison sounds pretty good. No cooking, no cleaning, plenty of time to write, and eight hours of sleep a night. I would have to do something to be put in solitary confinement to complete my dream.
Seriously, no I wouldn't miss a year of my kids growing up for any amount of money. That's why I work from home.
nope.....! my freedom is my ticket to wealth and all the goodness life has to offer!!!
no problem. i'd quit smoking while i was in, get in awesome shape and when i got out i'd take the family on a month long vacation.
Wow! What a very soul searching question. I've never made $250,000 for a years pay in my life, but I have a very loving family that I would miss for a whole year. When I got out I could invest that money in a business, but I have a job that I like now. With that kind of money (compared to my income level) I could take a year or two off and find my center, but I would miss the world and all that goes on in it. As I said, what a very soul searching question, but I would have to say yes. Because the truth is I've never made $250,000 for a years pay in my life.
No, because I might not survive prison to spend the money. That's the first consideration: Can one survive the experience? I assume your talking to US, the nice people, the law abiders, not professional, hardened criminals..
Like the rest of us, CaranHolidays, what goes on in prison, any prison.
The only way I would even consider it is if the prison was a federal "country club" type affair with bowling, unlimited visiting hours, private rooms, swimming, and knitting classes, and the like -- and NO VIOLENCE TOLERATED!

Before anyone starts to bash me for this topic, I would like to point out that I am NOT calling Robin Williams a coward by any means. If anything, I too was upset by his death, as he was one of the main reasons why I got into movies to begin with. Hell, even during some of his bad ones,...
