If you had the choice to make great to insane amount of money or Fluther, which would you choose?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (21111 points ) November 11th, 2011

If in order to make, create, or produce a great amount to an insane amount of money you had to sacrifice 80% or more of your Fluther time, would you? Or is Fluthering something you have to do, and money will not get in the way of it?

Sorry, my lurvlies, I’ll take the cash.

lillycoyote's avatar

Me too. Sorry guys, I love you all, but I am going to take the money and run.

AshLeigh's avatar

.. Out of the time I spend per day on Fluther? I’d still be on Fluther for an hour, or more every day. So I’d take the money. Hah.
If I had to give up Fluther all together, I wouldn’t be able to do it. :)

cash, then you could hire your own team of geniuses to answer any questions you have… maybe I would just pay you all to be at my beck and whim on a website such as this (but obviously wouldn’t be fluther) then I would have the cash too…

Bellatrix's avatar

I love you little jellies, but I am jumping ship for the cash too.

FutureMemory's avatar

I’d quit Fluther for $35 and a six pack.

JLeslie's avatar

Money.

Show me the $$$$$

augustlan's avatar

Fluther is how I make my money. It’s certainly not a ‘great to insane’ amount though, so I’d take the cash, too!

rebbel's avatar

I don’t get the question.
But if there is money involved I am gone (too).

SuperMouse's avatar

I love me some Fluther but I’d go with the cash.

marinelife's avatar

I would go for the money and temporarily give up Fluther.

zenvelo's avatar

This is a silly question, we’d all take the money.

lifeflame's avatar

Ok, the stakes don’t seem high enough.
what about… if you had to give up (a) facebook; (b) emailing; or© the internet entirely?

$$ of course

blueiiznh's avatar

I would carefully white board the pro’s and con’s of each.

Only then can I make a decision.

blueiiznh's avatar

tic tic tic…..

without knowing more information, I would do what I need to to survive and keep me happy. If fluther is one of those things that keeps me happy, then I will find a space of time for it no matter what.

Lightlyseared's avatar

Fluther. Just to be different.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Since money is the main reason I can not have another baby, I’d drop Fluther like a hot potato, get rich and get pregnant! I’d keep up with most of you on facebook or something. =0)

I love you guys an awful lot, but we needz another baby, precioussss.

wundayatta's avatar

What would I have to do to make the money? If it was something I believed in, and would be as interesting and engaging as fluther (like being Dr. Wundy or something on a TV show), then I’d take the cash. If it was representing investment banks in Washington, you can forget it. It also depends on the hours. I am not doing more than thirty hours a week of work, and only 20 hours of that is work directly related to my job. Unless it is so much fun, I want to do more.

A lot of conditions, dude. You gonna be able to hire me away?

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

Of course I would let Fluther go.

HungryGuy's avatar

Define “insane amount of money:”

harple's avatar

Well, given that fluther is what I do in my spare time, I guess I have already made the decision that it’s fluther… I could be working in an all-hours job that presumably meant I earnt decent money (which for me would translate into an insane amount of money), but I’ve chosen not to… and so I have more spare time, less money, resulting in more time on here! :-p

Seaofclouds's avatar

It depends on what I would have to do during that time I’m taking away from Fluther for the money.

digitalimpression's avatar

I would sacrifice fluther in a heartbeat. Jellies live outside too and you don’t have to type to them. Just talk.

YARNLADY's avatar

I would take the money.

JilltheTooth's avatar

I don’t really need more money, I’ll take the Jellyfish Group.

ratboy's avatar

I’d take the money if doing so only entailed abandoning Fluther, but if I actually had to expend some effort (euphemism for four letter word “w*rk”), I’d stay here.

wilma's avatar

Money.

XOIIO's avatar

Since I spend so much time on Fluther, it would probably leave me being on as much as anyone else normally is on, so yeah, the money.

cockswain's avatar

Cash rules everything around me. C.R.E.A.M, get the money, dolla dolla bill y’all.

reijinni's avatar

It depends on how the money is being made.

jonsblond's avatar

husband was just laid off again :(

$$$$$$$$$$

augustlan's avatar

@jonsblond Mine is still out of work, too. I feel you. :(

woodcutter's avatar

Where is the cut off between not so great, great and insane ammounts? of money.

Only138's avatar

Been Nice knowing ya. $$$$$
See ya.

FutureMemory's avatar

Someone should have flagged this for not explaining how much a great amount and an insane amount of money is. :P.

Symbeline's avatar

Christ, would I ever. Sorry.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@FutureMemory Someone should have flagged this for not explaining how much a great amount and an insane amount of money is. :P. I see, I mention X amount of money is great, then Joe Blow can come back and say, “I can live with ⅓ of that”, or John Q can say it was too little. I am sure the smart people of this Lagoon, have some idea above what level good money is. If they don’t, maybe they are really Amish and do not know it.

FutureMemory's avatar

Does this make sense to anyone?

woodcutter's avatar

Well, some here are trying to only be polite and to find out how much…or how little, it would take to blow everyone off here. An insane amount is a no brainer. Everyone could accept that, but how little money would it take is the real curiosity. It’s putting a value on friendship, or lack of, isn’t it? It’s an answer I’m sure some would rather not know :/

wundayatta's avatar

I think $200K a year would keep me off here for a job I liked. For a job I didn’t like, it would be upwards of $500k a year, but I’m not sure about that. I’m not sure any amount of money would get me to leave fluther—or anywhere else—to do a job I hated. Still, I guess I might put up with it for a few months if they paid me $1.2 million per year. I doubt if I could do it for more than 3 or 4 months, though.

Bellatrix's avatar

I am not sure how much it would take. If someone said to me, “you can earn this $xxx,xxx.00 but for this legitimate reason, you have to give up Fluther”, I would do it (it would need to be a big figure and a legitimate reason). However, if it was just “this job is really busy and you can earn $xxx” I don’t know that I would want to stay away from Fluther. For me it is relaxation. If you have a busy job, no matter how much you earn, you need some downtime. For me, Fluther IS downtime.

augustlan's avatar

It’d have to be enough to pay off all my debt, and give me a good head start on the future. Anything less, and I’m staying.

woodcutter's avatar

But will money be worth anything in the future?

Symbeline's avatar

My dad used to say, banks are the Devil’s temples.

And so it shall remain, until we have a zombie epidemic. Irony.

woodcutter's avatar

It would be cool to make a fire with money,if thats all it’s good for.

wundayatta's avatar

Tell you what, @woodcutter. You give me all your money, and I’ll give you ten times as much stuff that will make a really great bonfire. Deal?

XOIIO's avatar

@wundayatta photocopy hundreds of bills so they look real, rent a suit and burn them on your front yard.

wundayatta's avatar

@XOIIO What drug are you on? I never said I wanted to burn anything. I am, however, interested in taking custody of @woodcutter‘s cash, since he thinks it’s worthless and wants to burn it. I don’t think a photocopied substitute will do for him, either.

XOIIO's avatar

@wundayatta Meth, ecstacy, cocain and weed.

Nah, just chose the wrong person.

AshLeigh's avatar

^^ Haha. :D

woodcutter's avatar

@wundayatta Ha, I didn’t say build a fire with all the money, just enough to get it going for a while. And also to a response from @augustlan about getting a head start for the future^^, and the consideration the way it’s being printed up so fast would it not be worth anything but to make a fire with. If you had all my cash to get a blaze going right now, there wouldn’t be much of a heat signature.
