    No.

    I'd do it for 100 million.

    Left leg...I mean prosthetics these days aren't horrible...and it's not like I use my legs for anything a prosthetic can't do...
    Plus...100 million could easily sustain me and my family for the rest of our lives...it's almost stupid not to.....

    I wonder if you asked a soldier who lost a limb in battle if it was worth it.

    No. I don't think 1 million dollars could restore the quality of life lost with the amputation. I would only say yes by introducing conditions, but I don't think that's the point of this. 1 million also doesn't seem to be a lot of money these days. Though that's not to say I'd do it for an even greater sum of money either...

    I'm confident that I can earn enough to have a quality of life greater than that of a rich me with only one leg. Well, 1 million isn't that much really - I would certainly hope to have about that by retirement, especially with inflation. I'm talking about infinite money.

    Some things could change that, of course. Like if I already lost a leg, or if I had medical reasons to amputate, or some life-threatening need for money. But those seem almost as unlikely as someone offering me 1 million to hacksaw my leg off.

    Did he get a million dollars out of it?

    Depends on whether I would have a better life or make more money with them.

    Wow, an easy hypothetical for once!

    Definitely not!

    The amputation genie comes to you and says, "Jonnyboy, I want to amputate your leg and I'll give you a million dollars, but it has to be right now?"

    You say, "no thanks, bro."

    Then he says, "Okay, how about this then. You don't have to amputate today, but if your circumstances change (in the negative ways you mentioned before), then the offer still stands until you reach very old age... " Sort of like an insurance policy to fall back on. If you were hurting for money you could just summon him to amputate.

    But the condition is that if you never cash in on the offer, you still have to have your leg hacksawed off when you reach old age. I guess I'm going off the concept of someone selling their soul to the devil and him coming to collect. But in this case your buying a million $ insurance policy and when you reach old age the genie has to come and collect your leg if you never cashed in on it. I guess what I'm getting at is if it would be worth it to you to have an insurance policy like that to fall back on during your lifetime, knowing full well that if you don't use it you'll still have to amputate your leg in old age.
    I hope that makes sense, I don't even know where I'm going with this anymore.
