    He never had a choice but to be honest, I think it would follow a few key points:

    Marital status, children and family. IOW, depends on the people you love and care about. I have a wife and child so the prospect of doing sever time like that is absolutely unacceptable. I would have likely been willing if I had no family. Really, what I go through in the military is sometimes worse than what I would experience in a prison.


    Caveat: you would have to guarantee no rapes ;)


    As a side note: what happened to this individual is inexcusable and the sum of whatever settlement is meaningless.

    I wouldn't do 16 days in prison for 25 million (serious).

    Nope.

    I wonder if he was a Criminal of any kind...

    One who didn't get Busted for other Crimes...

    In that, this was a Pay-mother-fucking-day. :thup:

    I Often Wondered if that's what drove Cash to Fixate on Prisons...

    :)

    peace...

    Nope. Johnny Cash had an overriding concern for the down-trodden, Mal. It's called empathy, compassion, tolerance - look 'em up.

    Warning: Hijack alert . . .

    The title to this thread reminds me of a philosophical question we used to debate when I was a lot younger: would you sit and watch your wife have sex with another man for $10? Most would say no. $100? $10,000? 1 million? 100 million? 100 billion?

    At some point, as the ante goes up, most guys will pause more and more before they answer. And there's the ancilary question of, what do your think your wife would say about this proposal if it was reversed? At what point might she start to pause before answering?

    Johnny Case is a relative of Terry Typo.

    Didn't bother to look up those terms, hey?
