What Would You Do For $1 Billion? Porn? Murder? New Poll Reveals Things People Would Do For Money
Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot has surged to over $1.5 billion, but to claim that fortune you have to be one lucky S.O.B., one in 292.2 million to be exact. But what if you could increase your odds of receiving $1 billion remarkably just by performing a simple task, such as committing arson, treason, armed robbery or murder? Would you do it? Wouldya? Be honest. You’d probably do it wouldn’t ya?
To get the mega moolah, many Americans would be willing to star in porn and perpetrate horrendous acts just to get paid according to a new study. OnePoll.com conducted a survey of 1,000 people who were asked if they would commit various dubious acts for money.
Let’s start out small with illicit activities that someone would commit. It turns out that 15 percent of respondents said they would shoplift or illegally bet on a sporting event for $1,000.
Here’s a scary finding, 13 people, approximately 1 percent of the respondents, said they would kill someone for $1,000. Damn son, you could have held out for at the very least $100,000 before you agree to be an assassin. The crazy part is that fewer were willing to poison a stray animal than to commit murder.
