People Would Do Some Pretty Horrible Things for $1 Billion, Including Commit Murder
What would you be willing to do for an exceptionally large sum of money? Run naked down a busy street? Smuggle drugs across the border? Punch an old lady in the face?
How about murder?
According to a recent poll of 1,000 people, given the opportunity, many Americans would be willing to do some horrible things in exchange for a big payday.
Surprisingly, 6% of people say yes, they'd murder someone for $1 billion. And men are more than twice as likely as women to take the deal.
Here are some other awful things people would be willing to do if the price was right.
For $1 billion, 10% of people would commit arson, treason, armed robbery, mug someone, or help someone kill themself. And 22% would pose nude for a magazine.
For $100 million, 25% of people would lie to the police, or sell their sperm or eggs without telling their significant other. 15% would fake their own death. And 10% would kick a puppy, take steroids, or beat up a stranger.
For $1 million, 10% would commit credit card fraud, punch a stranger in the face, smuggle drugs across the border, or star in a porn.
For $100,000, 10% of people would enter into a fake marriage, cheat on their taxes, steal someone's purse, or perform a sex act on a stranger.
And for $10,000, 20% of people would steal a street sign or flash a stranger.
Some people have no soul.
