LOL, I haven't read this one in ages. Good scary short story.
Heh, that site will probably get more hits now than all of last week.
There was a movie series called Wishmaster. They probably read this story as kid, too.

Re-reading Pac's rules, I'm gonna say yes I'd play.

If I go in halfsies with someone and we win, I get 150 Mill and keep both my little mitts, too. Thumbs Up
Solution oriented. Cool

    I'm voting this poll "Most Stupid" so far in 2008, hands down. Instead of "stipulation" it should read "stupidlation", I just can't put my finger on it, but................ 

    Unfortunately, for criminals in some countries, stealing could cost you a hand, and if you repeat, hygiene becomes difficult.

    Now if you are a starfish............it'll grow right back in a couple of weeks.

        I know this poll was for fun...kinda sick, but fun nonetheless.  However, there was a nice family living in back of my parents when I was growing up for whom I babysat once in a while. The woman became my friend and one day she had an emergency. She fell asleep with a heating pad and didn't realize she had caught on fire.  Very long story...but eventually she found out she had a brain tumor, and when it was removed she was paralyzed from the waist up.  I remember when she said that at least she could use her legs, which she felt was a blessing.  I think she died of depression, not illness. Over time she became very frustrated because she had to ask someone to help her in the bathroom. You can't use bathroom tissue or even blow your nose without the use of your arms.  One day I was visting her and she asked me to light a cigarette for her. I held it while she took several drags. Then she asked me to scratch her nose.  So if you think losing the use of your arms or hands is worth $300 million, think again. 

        How did I know, you were going to ruin this poll with your overbearing seriousness. 

        the original question was... would you give up one hand not two?

        I can do alot of things with only one hand.

        but all joking aside

        No, I would not give up any limb of my body for a lottery win. disability is not something that I think I could ever handle.

        I would consider giving up a testical though~~

        *laughs*

                I have no idea what I would do. lol. Odds are, I would not cut off one of my hands, but part of me would think it would be awful tempting. LOL

                      i like my hands, but for atleast  300 million jackpot everytime, i think there would be more than 1 winner most of the time. and if thats not true then id just play 10 dollars worth just 5 sets of numbers and duplicate it, so now there is 2 winniner if i happen to have the tickets.

                        Something like that is insane.

                          You make an excellent point. I wonder if I'll still be able to cut my hand off if I only won 150 million. Tough one...lol

                          Just joshing....I voted no from the get go. I only did that because I play the guitar and losing a hand would be like shooting myself in the foot. One of the main reasons I want plenty of money is because I want to have a million dollar studio with the state of the art recording equipment, so I can write my own music. So it would be self defeating, but I was curious as to how people would choose.

                          Thanx for your observance.
