    Throw in the IUD and we're back on.

    I hate IUD's. But I'm down with not having any more bio children, if that's God's Plan.


    I think foster mother would be cool, however.

    I noticed that, too. However, even if I wasn't in a committed monogamous relationship, I would not want an eighteen year old guy. Not only would he be less than half my age, and younger than some of my kids (which to me would be skeevy) but I assume he'd be hanging around *all* the time, because he's a person and all. So in addition to sex that would most likely involve a lack of skill and premature ejaculation, I'd have to listen to him whine about being bored. That would upgrade the situation from prison to a circle of hell.

    Perhaps you girls should pick Barry Bonds - he's quite affordable.

    Give it 3 months without seeing any male and he'll start looking very attractive.

    Other than "gun", "booze & drugs" and "Barry Bonds" (?!?), I think that most of these have at least some appeal... but would I do this? Absolutely. Even after taxes, I'd come out of this in 10 years, age 51, with more than enough to retire. And I'd do it without having to work/answer to anyone. Sure, I'd probably come out of it a little screwed up, but I'm that anyway :p. Here's my list:

    Full Kitchen w/top-of-the-line ingredients (6 points - I have a TON of time on my hands... why not cook for myself?)
    Desktop Computer (6 points)
    Video Game Library (4 points)
    Book Library (4 points)
    Movie / TV Library (4 points)
    Cell Phone (3 points)

    and

    Mayo Clinic (3 points)

    or

    Garden/Greenhouse (2 points) + Pool Table (1 point)

    Total = 30 points


    The only thing here that's an obvious miss is "internet". But without streaming/downloading, 16 points is *way* too big a sacrifice. If it were 10 points (more reasonable), I'd have taken it. I don't really want to spend points on the cell phone, but it's the only other way (other than the internet) to communicate, and even a shut-in like me would go mad without that. Chatting with family/friends once a week would be a sanity-saver. Having absolutely no medical care at all would suck - bad. So I picked "Mayo Clinic doctors" -- but if basic medical care is included, I'd swap that out for the greenhouse/pool table (who needs a skylight when you can go hang out with a book in your greenhouse?). The workout center was also a last-minute cancel - I could have worked it in with a little playing around (ditch the pool table, etc.) to fit into 35 points, but 5 million is a lot. You can give yourself a fantastic workout without equipment... so I'd just do that instead.

    It occurs to me that I have taken this far too seriously...

    I had to wiki him. It doesn't mention much about his educational background and it mentions steroid use. Considering the side effects of steroids, he might very well be the worst of both worlds.

    Does it help that he was infamous for being a world-class jerk even before the steroids? :p
