Question of the Week #206

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!

  1. I would say yes as well! That $40,000 would completely clear all my existing debt! And give me enough to get like a pretty decent second hand car! Or at least pay a huge chunk of it! 😂 but my question is how big is this bowl? And is there some chocolates sauce to dip them in? I’ve had chocolate covered grasshoppers before so I imagine they would be similar?

      • Haha the live thing is the only part that could give me pause. Like I’m sure there is a way to eat them without it being overly nasty… hmmms what is up with this book and these questions 😂 some of them are totally out there!
