Would you be willing to eat a bowl of live crickets for $40,000?
Heck yes I would.
Actually, I say that… But I also think it’s kind of gross when I watch people like Rhett & Link eat bugs for the sake of entertainment. I think I could do it, though.
No, $40,000 isn’t, in the grand scheme of things, a great deal of money. But it sure would solve a great deal of my personal debt problems in the short run, particularly where student loans come into play. And how great would it be to not have those monthly payments to debtors? It would be like receiving a huge raise in my paycheck. And that’s the gift that keeps on giving.
So I’m a yes for the bowl of crickets. They’re just crunchy Cheetos! That probably taste like… well… not Cheetos. Where do I sign up? Seriously, I want to know. I could really use that 40k.
What about you? Would you eat a bowl of bugs for that particular sum of cash? Would you do it for less? What would it take to get a yes from you? Let me know down in the comments!
