I was under the impression that you lost your dignity a long time ago.

define dignity?

are you talking about making me look dumb on the internet type dignity?

or are you talking raping my sister (that I don't have) whenever you want without me caring type dignity?

because one is much more expensive than the other...

Your dignity would have to be sold at a discount rate because it has been used already. You let a imaginary Mike Tyson take it already. There is not telling who has used and abused your dignity in real-life.

it depends on what dignity you're talking about and how desperate you need the money.

if you're talking about something that's embarrassing for a day but you'll forget in a week, it doesn't concern me long-term.

if you're talking some shame that lasts for a lifetime with everyone not respecting you until you die, then there's probably no price that would compensate. who cares if you have money but you are depressed? (think of michael jackson)

but let's say you are in a desperate situation and a loved one needed help, and the only option was to acquire money for a life-saving operation or whatever, then you might have to consider the sacrifice if you have a greater purpose.

every situation is measured differently. it's more important you know what you value most.

there's no concrete figures for these kinds of life questions. fortunately, i don't have any of these problems to consider. so i can't really tell you since i haven't even ever dwelled on it. it's not something you'd know just off the top of your head. you'd probably have to think it thoroughly and consider everything and weigh in the options.

if you're asking would i consider humiliating myself for the rest of my life just so i can afford a lamborghini and live in a giant mansion, i would tell you straight up no. materialistic things won't compensate for the misery.

but if you're asking if i would consider sacrifices to ensure a life-death situation of a loved one would guarantee a solution, i don't know how i'll feel. but i don't think a straight up no would be my answer if i really wanted that person alive.

once you get into the type of money that saves lives you have to forfiet any dignity ou have...

I am not a Christian but Jesus was crucified for our sins...I would do the same if I knew it would save everyone.

So 20 Bucks and a case of Milwaukee's Best should seal the deal?
