Would you rather be given $10,000 for your own use or $100,000 to give anonymously to strangers? What if you could keep $1,000,000 or give away $20,000,000?

Sorry Joey, I'm not THAT altruistic - the only thing that would keep me from taking the money for myself is if the others wouldn't be able to manage without it. Otherwise, it's MINE, all MINE! re: here's an interesting one...

oh the dilema -- option one I'd rather give the 100k to friends who need it -- don't get me wrong, 10K in the pocket would be nice in the pocket, but not that much

the million???...selfishness is starting to creep in....

I wouldn't take money to only then give it away to complete strangers. If I could share the wealth amongst my friends and include myself (naturally) then I would.
Nothing precious, plain to see, don't make a fuss over me. Not loud, not soft, but somewhere inbetween. Say sorry, just let it be the word you mean.

i'd go popculture's route... when it comes down to it, i need to take care of myself first... $10,000 wouldn't be enough to get me out of debt, but it would go along way toward getting me debt free... as far as the $1,000,000 goes, i think it would help redhot and i achieve some of our goals like owning our own businesses, a bakery for me and perhaps an all-Sondheim theater troupe for him...

I'd def give the $100k away--it would make you feel WAY better than the 10k for yourself!

now the million i would keep....

joeyjoe, I really don't think the casting couch would work out at all well in this instance.

I think I'd rather give away the 100k, the million? Well that is a harder question. If invested right it could be worth more than 20 million someday, and then think of the good that could be done. (I know I know take off the rose colored glasses!)

mom, great response!!!

popculture, i don't think so either... he wouldn't have a casting couch anyway... when it comes to Sondheim and redhot, you MUST stand on your own stage abilities...
