    I was out fishing today in the Atlantic ocean and I saw a five dollar bill. Well, I happen to like money, so the sensible thing to do seemed to be to jump in and get it. The water looked shallow, but before long I was up to my neck in water, fully clothed and shoed.

    Everyone around me told me there was no way in hell they would have done that for $5. Come on, $5 can buy a lot of great things. So, that leads me to wonder...What would YOU have done?

    Depends on what I was wearing. Probably would've stripped first.

    Also probably would've tried to hook it with my line first.

    Well don't you think if you would have taken your clothes and left your bra and underwear, then am sure you would have not gotten all of your clothes wet, and the guys around you would have surely thrown a few more 5 dollar bills into the water.

    Whenever something related to money comes up, I always compare it to my time. I figure my time at any given point in the day is worth around $100/hour. Therefore, for $5 I would have to do something that would take less than 3 minutes to complete.

    So no, I would not have jumped into the water as the time taken to get back into the boat, and dry my clothes off would not have been 3 minutes or less.
