    "What is your price?" I'm wondering what would you be willing to sell yourself for. I've been called stupid a lot of times in my life and even told in the last few years that I deserved whatever was dished out to me here because I refused to "sell out".

    How much would it cost to purchased your beliefs?

    Are they for sale at any cost?

    If so, "what's your price"? How much would you take to save yourself a lot of headache, work and grief in this world?

    What does this mean? What would we have to do? Spend my day's going door to door preaching?

    If you owned something and you had control of something that was worth more than multiple millions and you believed that you could do more good with that which you owned long term if you controlled it would you sell it for mere cash to people who simply wanted to have control? Would you give it up for cash and the comforts that cash can buy?

    I was simply asked, "what's your price?" And told "everyone has one, what's yours?".

    Confirmation that you are a cheap date does not count.

    If I didn't need the money I wouldn't compromise my beliefs for it, if I needed the money, who knows.

    worth more than multiple millions? You couldn't do squat with that, so I say sell if they offer more then it's worth.
    Look at Bill Gates, he's got $50 billion to spend for good. He ain't done shit that I know of yet, except maybe give some poor kids computers, so they can eventually pay for an upgrade to Windows Bloz 2010.
