    If you could stand in line 10 hours for something you really wanted, what would that be?

    There are people that stand-in-line for shoe-sneakers for long hours.

    Tickets to a Pink Floyd concert. 10 hours is a long time though.

    Hey its like being at the DMV. Really though there isn't much I'd stand in line 10 hours for. I'm a pretty simplistic person, and I'll answer this question without actually answering it. I wouldn't wait for an item, I'd wait 10 hours and an endless amount of time to be with the love of my life. A girl that currently lives states away and I barely get to see. Yeah waiting for something sucks but it's worth it when its for something you truly want and care about

    The closest I've come to doing this is being in the Emergency Room with a loved one.

      I understand that Tamara, I would do that as well. Now that could be the difference between  life and death.

    Ten hours is a bit long but I stood in line for 4 hours in December 1976 to see the King Tut exhibit at the National Gallery in Washington.

    Off hand, I cannot think think of a single thing or person I could feel is worth 10 hours of my valuable time......unless someone was giving away bags of huge sums of money!

    I reckon I am just an old guy. It would be no problem for me as I would just pay someone to do it. It really can not be done under normal conditions. Either the person becomes too dehydrated or they have to go pee. Depends may work. Here they use tents and a sentry. But that is not "standing" in line for 10 hours.
    I suppose if it were to get into seeing a child born it would be worth it.

      That's true, one could you use someone to wait inline for them, or use a chair to assist in waiting 10 hours.
