I'd like to self-publish a book of hilarious questions that ask how far you would go for an easy – or perhaps not so easy -- million dollars. Read more
This project was successfully funded on January 2, 2010.
About this project
Q: You know what I love? A: Making up and asking insane questions to gauge how far my friends would go for money. (No, really. I even have a blog about it at www.livewrongandprosper.com) I know, I know: We all like to think that we have principles and convictions and morals and junk. But what would happen if a fat million-dollar paycheck was dangled in front of you -- and all you had to do was forget all that morality crap? What then, huh? I mean, everyone wants a million dollars. The question is, how low would you go to get it?
It's also the question at the heart of the book Live Wrong and Prosper: Your Morals for A Million. I'd love to self-publish this hilariously twisted exploration of the alternately ridiculous, disgusting, immoral, amoral and outlandish things we would do for money. In LWAP's pages will lie the opportunity to ask yourself and your friends, quite literally, What would you do for a million dollars?
A tiny sampler of questions -- again, for more, visit www.livewrongandprosper.com:
* Would you become a regular at a sex/swingers club? You must participate regularly and enthusiastically!
* Would you willingly ingest a tapeworm?
* Would you spend a year as a prisoner at Gitmo?
* Would you be willing to learn the exact time and date of your death?
* Would you disappear for a year, leaving only a suicide note for your friends and family to find?
They say everyone has their price, but LWAP is the best way to find out if you and your friends can be bought. Because what’s more satisfying than realizing your best friends are as greedy and morally bankrupt as you? What greater self-satisfaction is there than the kind derived from knowing you wouldn’t stoop as low as the roomful of degenerates you’re drinking with? What greater pleasure is there than that which comes with proudly announcing that, yes, you would go back in time and slap Gandhi?
The answer is: There Is None.
Live Wrong and Prosper: Your Morals for a Million will be approximately 100 pages and only 100 copies will be produced. While all questions will be left up to you, I'll also offer my own honest answer to many of them myself! The $1,200 will be used solely for costs related to printing the book and shipping costs.
I'm so excited to share this game that I love, and which I know you will too!
