    Yeah, the whole point of working on this damn box is to be able to get away from it..

    Might have to, Iunno... Go fishing, or camping or maybe take a trip... Sounds terrible.

    That's only $200,000 a year or $3846 a week.
    You can make more then that in IM if you try.

    Hells yeah I'd do it. Ive gone 2 weeks with no withdrawals, I go live in Alaska in a custom built cabin with a bunch of guns and snowmobiles and hunt for ten years. I finally get around to reading the hunger games and oh also take a bunch of chicks and get my gang bang back in motion.

    I wouldnt actually not do it i think, Of course its nice just going on holiday etc and just doing nothing.
    But it would eventually bore the shit out of me. Internet is just like a big adventure, there is always something to do. 10 years is a long period without

    Very true, however IM isn't guaranteed for ten years. Plus, if you were earning that you'd have to pay tax on $3846. $2million earned via IM is $1million take home. Add onto that inflation, and the $2m straight up cash is a much better deal.

    $2million in the bank and with a few wise investments it'd be soon turn into much more. I'd take the $2m. Thought I love the internet, so it's a tough choice.

    No way unless like someone said you can use the money to make more money then return it. Who knows what things will be like in a few years let alone 10. Imagine the technology you would be missing out on.

    Could you imagine using regular cellphone, phonebooks, tv guide, newspapers? Information at your fingertips is too valuable. If you ever worked on computers before internet was around you wouldn't want to go back. I use to be a network admin and the internet made the job almost too easy. Just to make capped 200k yearly or $500 day I'll pass going backwards in time. In a few years time I would think things are going to be so connected it def wouldn't be worth it.

    Even though I can't imagine my life without internet I would definitely do it! It is a lot of money and I could live with that amount for 10 years straight. C'mon, there are so many things to do besides internet.
