A friend of mine has made the following statement:

Someone asked me if I would be willing to eat a croissant and film my reaction to it and offered to pay me $150 for it! :rolleyes:

I said no way! But having thought about it for a little while, I'm thinking it might not have been such a bad endeavour. I'd want to bargain with them a little bit and I think I'd want a higher price though... More like 10-100 thousand dollars maybe???


What do you think? Would you eat something laden with gluten so that you could earn a certain amount of money?

For $150, I wouldn't do it, but I think would do it for a lot more money.

It would have to be more than $150 but I've got a kid going to an out of state college. :D

And it has to be something really tasty!

It's the filming that would make me ask for more money. I mean, what are they going to do? Follow me into the bathroom? Seriously?

There is too much depersonalization fostered by the internet and reality television, so people are thinking that games and gambling, combined with voyeurism, have the better outcome than real life doing the right thing.

I recently was glutened at my daughters wedding reception and the "effects" are still very fresh in my mind (and body).
No I would not.No amount of money is worth that .Not to mention the fact I would not want a camera there during the explosions :blink:

I may do it for $10K or more but would feel conflicted inside knowing what I did after being soooooo careful for nearly six months. :o

I would be all over that. But it would need to be a hell of a lot more than $150 for me to purposefully eat gluten. I'm thinking over $3000.

Reminds me of an old joke

He: Would you have sex with me for a million dollars?
She: Yes
He: Would you have sex with me for ten dollars?
She:What do you think I am?
He: We have established that, Now we are dickering over the price.

I think I'm going to hell for snickering over this one as loudly as I did. :lol:

You know, for a million, I'd do it. Think I could advertise on craigslist and find a willing rich person to offer? I've got some student loans and medical bills...

At this point, absolutely! Not sure about later when I've been completely gluten free and feel better though.

After being to hell and back, health wise, and now living each day as a gift and a day of grace, there is no amount of money you could pay me to ruin what is otherwise priceless.

If someone gave me 100K, I'd definitely eat gluten. I'd do it for as low as $3K but I also have a wedding and honeymoon to pay for :)
