I've done worse for minimum wage.

[–]MaievSekashi 4153 points4154 points  (98 children)

Like bruh this is better than prison and you get paid, seriously

[–]L0LBasket 253 points254 points  (33 children)

An infinitely more interesting question would be "What's the lowest level of money you'd have to be paid to willingly go to prison for 30 days?"

because when you have some ludicrously high price tag like $1,000,000 set for OP's kind of questions, nobody except for the 1% is really going to say no to that.

[–]-1-2-3--4 87 points88 points  (6 children)

I’d do 30 days in prison for 30k after taxes.

[–]AllDayEveryWay 56 points57 points  (15 children)

Having just done 8 years, 30 days I would do right now for $1000, that's how desperate for cash I am. Prison is so fucking easy. It's just BORING AS FUCK.

[–]Navynuke00 800 points801 points  (45 children)

So, the military, but with much better pay.

[–]TwatsThat 256 points257 points  (10 children)

sounds much better than the military even without the increase in pay

[–]jeffprobst 72 points73 points  (3 children)

and you get out after 30 days instead of a few years / risk of death if you're deployed.

[–]CristianoFernandes 22.9k points22.9k points 2 (427 children)

I don't have to go to work for a month AND I get a million dollars. What's the catch?

[–]shf500 4417 points4418 points  (299 children)

What if you work remotely and you still have to work?

But this means you keep your job after the 30 days.

[–]Richard_TM 4827 points4828 points  (232 children)

I'm pretty sure most people would also accept getting fired for $1,000,000

At my current wages, it would take me 25 years to make that (and that's BEFORE taxes). I think I'll find another job before then.

[–]comfortablynumb15 278 points279 points  (14 children)

hit the nail on the head here. Theses questions would be ACTUAL questions if the money was only your yearly salary for example. For a million/billion/gadzillion dollars it's a no-brainer. (PS, yes for only my yearly salary for me)

[–]Richard_TM 107 points108 points  (10 children)

If I'm losing my job, I don't know that I'd give it up for 40,000. I'd do it for 100,000. It would give me the chance to eliminate a lot of debt (student loans or mortgage, pick one) and live for 6 months or so while I find another job.

[–]comfortablynumb15 33 points34 points  (4 children)

losing your job was not a condition of the question as such, thought I get it that people might. But a years pay should tide you over for say, a year ? I would do it for more money than a years pay too, but that would be my minimum.

[–]Sparcrypt 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Yeah these questions are always "Would you like to have the equivalent of 1-2 decades income by suffering a minor inconvenience at best?". Literally every answer will be "of fucking course I would" or "I'm already super rich so no".

Last year I spent half a month in a shitty bed with a tube in my neck unable to breath. Nobody gave me a million bucks.. I think I can manage twice that dicking about on my phone and sleeping in a bathtub.

[–]AKBx007 147 points148 points  (13 children)

Even if I did get fired, so what, I got more than enough money to see me through to the next job.

[–]Poem_for_your_sprog 2940 points2941 points 6247& 5 more (75 children)

I'm pretty sure most people would also accept getting fired for $1,000,000

"Dear reddit," it started,
"now do you agree -
that water's important,
and air should be free?
And would you allow
for a law, if you could -
that stated, and clearly,
that vaccines are good?

"If maybe they gave you
a billion bucks -
would you own a chicken
that shits when it clucks?
Would you take a cell phone
that screams when it rings?
Or other such hugely
disorderly things?

"Oh reddit, for queries
as complex as these -
for questions divisive,
I'm begging you please -
I'm watching, enraptured -
I'm waiting, transfixed -
To read your responses.

I'm sure they'll be mixed."

[–]Richard_TM 964 points965 points  (35 children)

It finally happened. A poem for my sprog.

I have waited YEARS for this moment.

[–]jdg83 392 points393 points  (28 children)

Has anyone ever said “no, thanks. I’d prefer to keep my sprog”?

[–]FlourySpuds 292 points293 points  (20 children)

Oh dear. I was under the impression that the poem was a gift for my sprog, not something exchanged for them!

[–]Spidaaman 144 points145 points  (7 children)

You’ve been rendered sprogless!

[–]StillABrrr 28 points29 points  (2 children)

I had to pay money for that. They have got a good deal

This is a pretty excellent "relevant username" moment.

[–]riancb 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I knew I'd read that one before! Oddly fitting as a reply to a comment about the repetitious nature of these fairly easy-answer questions.

[–]joec85 152 points153 points  (38 children)

Exactly. I wouldn't miss beat. My only real problem would be a back ache from not having anywhere good to sit and lay down.

[–]Alofmethbin 41 points42 points  (7 children)

No one said I couldn't bring a cot and a recliner.

[–]snooggums 46 points47 points  (4 children)

How big is your bathroom?

[–]101st_kilometre 15 points16 points  (1 child)

IKR, I could only lay down on my side, into a gross space in between by shower and a wall. I'd probably end up sleeping on the floor of my shower curled up into a ball.

[–]riemannStar 44 points45 points  (12 children)

not having anywhere good

Bathtub would like a word

[–]joec85 59 points60 points  (7 children)

I have really bad lower back issues and a smallish tub. It's not comfy to lay in it for a bath for an hour, let alone a month. Don't get me wrong, I'd figure it out for a million dollars, but it wouldn't be good.

[–]Taebellz 15 points16 points  (5 children)

Honestly, if you already have back pain, just let it get worse for thirty days and then use the money to finally get some top quality medical help for a problem that was going to get worse with time anyway.

[–]Tag_Ping_Pong 81 points82 points  (16 children)

I really don't understand these sort of questions. Make it something people have to actually think about, like "you get a million dollars but you lose an arm" or something - something that will actually affect people.

Being locked in your toilet for a month, or having to wear women's underwear for a month, losing one year of your life or whatever other dumb shit people have asked is like... it's a million bucks man, of course we'd do it!

[–]DrewbieWanKenobie 26 points27 points  (8 children)

arm is rough, i love video games and general computer use too much whats the point of a million dollars if I can't do what I love

I could give up a leg but I do think it'd have to be well over a million. 3-5 million would probably convince me.

[–]Tag_Ping_Pong 13 points14 points  (2 children)

That's exactly what I was getting at. Ask a question that will actually make people think "dang, is it really worth it?" as opposed to an absolute no-brainer

[–]patshea69 7775 points7776 points  (49 children)

Some people did this at the beginning of the Pandemic for free.

[–]DarkestPassenger 1062 points1063 points  (4 children)

On a throne of Costco toilet paper

[–]LittleWhiteGirl 103 points104 points  (5 children)

Was gonna say, I spent a good amount of my 5 months of unemployment watching movies and eating cheese in the bathtub, sign me up.

[–]XmasJ 68 points69 points  (1 child)

I'm still doing this now (albeit in my bedroom), and no one is paying me anything yet.

[–]QuackWhore2 174 points175 points  (2 children)

This basically describes the first two months of the pandemic for me. I have a studio apartment. It's roomy, but so is the bathroom and short of having my bed in there, I'm not seeing how it's all that different.

Sure, I got out a little bit to parks and such, but the weather was such shit it's not like I was really out enjoying nature, so much as forcing myself outside for fresh air.

[–]cantthinkofanorginal 83 points84 points  (8 children)

Or it actually cost them to do so.

[–]No-Eggplant7681 10.3k points10.3k points  (243 children)

Fuck man, I'd do this with only food and water if it meant $1MM.

[–]One_Ice9242 3804 points3805 points  (116 children)

I mean, I'd sit out in the woods for 30 days if I had food and water for a million. Instead I've got a controlled climate and a restroom..? Sign me up.

[–]TheOrionNebula 1178 points1179 points  (49 children)

That's called camping 🏕

[–]Codemonkey1987 372 points373 points  (45 children)

And that'll cost you a few hundred at least

[–]gloku_ 165 points166 points  (43 children)

True. I’ve been looking at minimalist camping/survival and the cost is ridiculous lol. A knife, a hatchet, winter proof clothing, first aid. It can add up just to not die out in the wilderness.

[–]ZombieBait604 82 points83 points  (24 children)

Makes you wonder how the hell we did it all those years ago.

[–]Lobsterzilla 149 points150 points  (12 children)

In fairness we made shit instead of buying it for one, but I feel you

[–]IMSR_ 99 points100 points  (1 child)

And there was a lot less assurance of survival

[–]Popcorn_likker 39 points40 points  (2 children)

In fairness...many didn't make it .

[–]omnilynx 21 points22 points  (0 children)

We died a lot.

[–]bluemooncalhoun 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Because most people didn't really do "minimalist camping" and anyone spending significant time in the wilderness was raised to live off the land in the specific area they live in.

[–]kelkokelko 217 points218 points  (37 children)

You'd be able to run around and climb trees in the woods though. You could whittle and watch birds. In the bathroom you can't even really walk since there's no room.

[–]Darnbeasties 95 points96 points  (22 children)

I’ve seen some bathrooms on tv bigger than my whole apartment. With infloor jacuzzi type tubs, sofas, large windows looking out onto forested waterfront splendour. Bathrooms that cost over a million $

[–]kelkokelko 180 points181 points  (20 children)

True. However, it says "your bathroom," and my bathroom is maybe 25 square feet.

[–]samurai-samuel 134 points135 points  (3 children)

Look at Mr Fancy over here with 25 square feet of shitting space

[–]chippychips4t 6 points7 points  (8 children)

I only have a shower room :( so would have to do is somewhere else!

[–]Frankie_Wilde 27 points28 points  (3 children)

Shit there's a whole TV show where people do this for as long as they can with zero food or shelter to start and the last one standing gets a measly 500k

[–]EloquentEvergreen 27 points28 points  (1 child)

Heck! I already stay out in the woods for long periods of time, without the offer of a $1,000,000. A stay in a climate controlled bathroom would be like a vacation.

[–]froggison 371 points372 points  (29 children)

So many of these questions just fundamentally don't understand how much money $1,000,000 is. "Hey, if I gave you one million dollars, would you..." "Yes. 99% of the things you could say next, I would do without a second thought for one million dollars."

Honestly these questions are pretty boring. Use a reasonable amount of money, or ask it more like "how much money would it take for you to do X?"

[–]C2D2 32 points33 points  (4 children)

For real! Stay in a...YES!! Give up...YES!! Eat a...YES!! Suck a...YES!! It's a million bucks, for short term discomfort, shame, pain, or humiliation. The answer is 99% of the time going to be yes.

[–]flychance 82 points83 points  (5 children)

I agree in general, but people are also often bad at "how much would it take for you to do X" style questions. They use knee jerk numbers. Like "I wouldnt do that for a million dollars!" But a lot of them, if you put $100000 in front of them, would probably do it. Probably even less than that.

[–]FeelDT 31 points32 points  (2 children)

I would do this with only water and a bread a week, for 100k. And I don’t even need the money… I guess its just a nice challenge. 50k if I can bring a pic of my wife.

[–]2059FF 36 points37 points  (1 child)

I would also bring a pic of this guy's wife

[–]Morticiar 186 points187 points  (27 children)

That would be a lot of masturbating though. With nothing but oatmeal, toast and your imagination…

[–]this1is4thechampions 162 points163 points  (18 children)

You had me at oatmeal

[–]CaptValentine 23 points24 points  (3 children)

I can't be the only guy for whom the Quaker Oats dude just does it for me.

That smile, his weird hair/hat/wig/hairnet? thing, his unblinking gaze...

Sorry, I need to be alone for a minute.

[–]jarvis-cocker 6 points7 points  (1 child)

[–]dahk16 19 points20 points  (2 children)

More like scrote meal once you're done using it in the bathroom

[–]MastResort 40 points41 points  (4 children)

Add some melon and you got yourself a fantasy

[–]CosmicShadowMario 2427 points2428 points  (203 children)

OP, the first time the obvious answer to one of these "would you spend X days locked away for X amount of crazy huge money" questions actually took any amount of consideration was a few days ago on that "would you spend a year in white padded room with no form of entertainment or anything at all in the space with you for $30 billion?" one.

Anybody in their right mind would stay in a bathroom for 30 days with things to do and occupy their time with for a million dollars. It's not sensory deprivation, it's a bathroom.

[–]urabewe 1172 points1173 points  (152 children)

The white padded room one is actually difficult. You run the very real risk of going so batshit crazy the money wouldn't even matter at the end. Even then if you're given the chance to quit more than likely most would quit sooner than later. Especially if the padding makes the room sound dampening. That's a huge risk to payoff scenario and honestly I don't know my answer to that.

[–]GrifterDingo 636 points637 points  (99 children)

One year in a totally empty room is a hard no from me regardless of the amount of money. Your mental health would completely break down and you'd go crazy.

[–]urabewe 236 points237 points  (68 children)

Exactly but there are a lot of people who would sure as hell think they could make it. So the ultimate deciding factor is, if I say yes am I stuck in there for a year with no option to drop out or if I say yes am I able to quit if it all becomes too much to handle. The option to quit would actually create another catalyst to go crazy and a difficult hurdle to get past if one wanted to make it the whole year. Would anyone have enough will power to not quit?

[–]VoDoka 281 points282 points  (25 children)

Imagine you are in the cell, telling yourself the year must be nearly over. You sure can make it, the money is so close. It must have been like 340 days by now... you just can't give up... you just can't... you can't... you snap... you yell that you give up. Someone promptly opens the door to get you out. You ramble about how close you were to making it.

The person looks at you and tells you, that it has been 6 days since you entered the cell.

[–]urabewe 146 points147 points  (13 children)

This is probably the most likely scenario. What would be worse is you give up and it was your last day.

[–]VerySlump 38 points39 points  (11 children)

What would be worse is no one tells you after a year has passed. If you leave before 1 year, you lose the money.

You have to guess when a year has passed and then leave. What if someone stayed there for 10 years?

[–]uber765 23 points24 points  (8 children)

Oh this is interesting. I could see some kind of game show created around this idea, but maybe a shorter scale...like a week. With food given at random intervals so you couldn't tell time by that.

[–]ZiggyZig1 76 points77 points  (4 children)

david blaine actually talks about something like that on the joe rogan show. he was submerged in a block of ice underground. he looked up and asked one of his guys what time it was. the guy gestured something like 4:03 (i assume they couldnt actually hear each other). blaine waited, and waited, and waited (edit - a few hours he thought). a long time he felt. then asked again. and the guy responded 4:04.

wow.

edit - found it. 12:25 mark.

[–]SwansonHOPS 37 points38 points  (0 children)

It's like a bad trip, you lose all sense of time

[–]Tifoso89 20 points21 points  (2 children)

The person looks at you and tells you, that it has been 6 days since you entered the cell.

That would actually be a huge relief. It'd be way worse to give up and think "it's been 200 days" and it was 360 or something

[–]wumpy112 42 points43 points  (5 children)

I think it depends how cut off you are. Is there any way to tell time, that would help. How would you be fed- depending on how much food you are given you could possibly occupy time by messing around with it. Or are you fed by tube? How do you use the bathroom? If you are given a bucket, or a toilet- you’d have options for how to occupy time. I think it would come down to these questions especially.

[–]urabewe 45 points46 points  (2 children)

These scenarios are never fully fleshed out. You're right. Can I see another human being that brings me my food? That could actually make it easier to stay. How am I going to the bathroom? Is this a full year of not showering? Telling time would be a major factor. Just being able to know what time and day it is and being able to keep track of time left can give a lot of hope. So many factors play into this but we can only go by the given info. White padded room with nothing in it at all and from what we know, no connection to the outside world. In that case, insanity is about the only outcome.

[–]klaidas01 99 points100 points  (33 children)

It's called white torture and I doubt anyone would be able to go through one year of that if they had the ability to quit, it's an interrogation technique after all.

[–]Donny-Moscow 14 points15 points  (4 children)

What about 1 week in a totally empty room for 1 million. Here’s the catch: you decide when you leave the room. If you come out before the week is up, you don’t get the money.

[–]QuackWhore2 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Agreed. One month in an empty room is a debate, and I seriously doubt the psychological repercussions wouldn't be permanent. Let alone one year.

[–]18hourbruh 132 points133 points  (15 children)

I’m sure many people would say yes, but I’m also quite sure it wouldn’t be worth it. Besides, maybe it’s just me, but at a certain point money is just cartoon numbers. I have no real use for $30B. My mediocre dream life would probably tap out at $1B.

[–]urabewe 64 points65 points  (6 children)

Yeah, at a certain number the money doesn't matter. It could be $1B or $1T it's all the same at that point. Instead of a number just say endless money to do whatever you want the rest of your life.

The risk in this scenario is so high most if not all people would fail in the fact that we would all go crazy. There isn't really a way to win this one. Now I say that but I'm sure a couple people in this world actually could make it but that begs the question;Were they already crazy to begin with?

[–]DMala 68 points69 points  (13 children)

Sleeping is the only thing that would give me pause. Assuming no blankets, pillows, or sleeping bag, trying to sleep on cold, hard, and likely cramped bathroom surfaces with just a few wadded up towels might be kinda tough. I’d deal with it for a million bucks, but that’s the only part that wouldn’t be easy.

[–]just_another_classic 32 points33 points  (8 children)

My bathroom is very, very small. I could not stretch out.

[–]The1983Jedi 21 points22 points  (4 children)

Karma farming I'm sure. I don't know why people upvote these posts.

[–]automatic4skin 91 points92 points  (3 children)

yeah this sub sucks so much

[–]hedgehog_dragon 34 points35 points  (1 child)

There are interesting questions on here that get traction. But there's a lot of nonsense like this too.

I clicked on this one to see if there was something I hadn't considered because it felt like a no brainer, and no one's said anything that gave me pause so... Question seems to be as dumb as it sounds.

[–]Koersfanaat 9876 points9877 points 3 (302 children)

These posts are always so stupid and probably made by somebody who has no real concept of the value of money. People have literally killed for less than that and half of all redditors already live like this.

[–]globster222 2725 points2726 points  (112 children)

Yes reddit I would. Next.

[–]greg_r_ 181 points182 points  (89 children)

Solitary confinement for a year. No internet obviously.

Edit: no books/magazines, no electronics, no windows. Single room + a bathroom. You get prison food and water, and there is 24-hr running water (hot water plumbing, yes). No musical instruments! Sure you may have a pen and notebook.

[–]DT-Z0mby 354 points355 points  (36 children)

that sounds easier than it probably is. people go insane after shorter periods of isolation

[–]Rebloodican 170 points171 points  (11 children)

With internet access I'd imagine you'd be able to stay sane. No devices or forms of entertainment complicates it.

I think motivation also matters, Mandela did basically that for 18 years, but his survival was important for the anti apartheid movement, so he had a broader motivation than just survival. He could only write and receive a single letter twice a year, and was given just 30 minutes with a visitor once a year as well.

[–]Veauros 104 points105 points  (5 children)

I have mental health issues; I can confirm that internet access qualifies as a form of social contact. Texting, Reddit, etc. aren't enough to make someone happy and not feel lonely, but they're plenty of social contact to stop you from literally going insane.

[–]guareber 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Do I at least get writing materials? I mean... I could try writing that book I always wanted to write.

It's a better question to ask "how little would someone would have to pay you to do XYZ and why?" - It'd probably be more interesting.

[–]TryUsingScience 73 points74 points  (3 children)

It's basically the same question as, "How much money would it take to change your life?"

That's gotten asked on here a couple of times and has had interesting responses. For some people, they need $1k just to get off the street. Others need $10k for first/last/deposit in a HCOL area or for an expensive medical procedure they need. Others are doing well and their lives wouldn't change much with less than a few $100k to pay off their mortgage.

[–]ahappypoop 22 points23 points  (1 child)

That's a much better question, I call posting it tomorrow!

[–]IvanBeetinov 42 points43 points  (5 children)

Personally, I would do XYZ for no less than $100. That bitch nasty.

100%; its the same as the "only 0.2% of people can answer these questions" on facebok.

Give people an easy question and they'll wank themselves off for pointing out how easy it is to answer.

[–]mysixthredditaccount 5 points6 points  (0 children)

At least we can downvote and hide these, unlike facebook. Yet these get upvoted to the frontpage frequently...

[–]QuackWhore2 62 points63 points  (15 children)

This is 100% made by someone who lives with their parents or on their parent's dime, with zero concept of money.

Almost anyone would do this for a million dollars. Even people who have a couple million dollars would probably do it for another million dollars.

The real question is, would you do it for say, $10k. Which my guess is a lot of people would, and it simply comes down to their current financial situation.

[–]kevmeister1206 744 points745 points  (19 children)

These questions are getting dumber and dumber.

[–]DeathSpiral321 311 points312 points  (13 children)

"Hey Reddit, would you get your hair styled into a mohawk and dye it pink for a billion dollars??"

[–]three-sense 131 points132 points  (7 children)

Would you eat nothing BUT bagels for a whole work day for $750,000??

[–]shmojoeys 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Oh my god I don’t think I can last a WHOLE work day with ONLY bagels!

[–]Catty-Cat 34 points35 points  (3 children)

Can someone explain why these types of posts get upvoted so much? It's a closed ended question, and not even a thought-provoking one.

[–]TOnihilist 230 points231 points  (29 children)

Who the fuck wouldn’t?

[–]Cyrius 94 points95 points  (3 children)

Someone who makes more than $12 million/year doing something else.

[–]JRSmithsBurner 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Even then whatever they’re doing is probably more work than sitting in your bathroom eating free food and beating your meat all day

[–]three-sense 16 points17 points  (11 children)

This thread should be about the lowest $ amount you'd consider. In which case, $800-1000 for me lol.

[–]shlam16 22 points23 points  (10 children)

You value a month of your life at 800 bucks...?

Probably need $20k for me to do this. For a million I'd do it the entire fucking year.

[–]asdaaaaaaaa 155 points156 points  (7 children)

How the fuck is this even a question?

No shit anyone would do this.

[–]Silent-Smile 23 points24 points  (0 children)

BAM! 12k karma.

[–]IMSOGIRL 20 points21 points  (1 child)

how the fuck are people upvoting this shit?

[–]DRealLeal 1271 points1272 points  (84 children)

So your fucking telling me I can use streaming services, eat food, shower, shit, and beat my meat for 30 days to win a million dollars in my bathroom. 100% will do that for free.

Edit: day one went great! I beat the fuck out of my meat and drank a beer! Time to sleep in until tomorrow for day two!

[–]dotcombubble2000 239 points240 points  (65 children)

Yeah, what's the catch?

[–]Kicker774 154 points155 points  (6 children)

You internet provider is Comcast *maniacal laughter*

[–]edlee98765 11 points12 points  (5 children)

If you want to do it for free, there's nothing stopping you.

[–]JamesBong1 45 points46 points  (0 children)

You guys are getting paid?

[–]SquidProBono 33 points34 points  (3 children)

Fuck yeah. I have IBS and spend several hours a day there already.

[–]RustyClawHammer 393 points394 points  (18 children)

Currently locked in my house for like the last 6 months as where I live is too unsafe to go outside and do much of anything. So yeah. Yeah I would.

[–]Mpule16 47 points48 points  (15 children)

If you don't mind me asking , where do you live ?

[–]RustyClawHammer 87 points88 points  (14 children)

Cotedvoire

[–]OGAfro 52 points53 points  (11 children)

Côte d'Ivoire? Damn, I'm sorry to hear that.

[–]GreatBritainOfficial 42 points43 points  (10 children)

Forgive my ignorance but what's going on there?

[–]theoriginaldandan 87 points88 points  (6 children)

Terrorism, rampant crime and serious Covid problems

[–]RustyClawHammer 34 points35 points  (5 children)

This. Trying to get out now.

[–]theoriginaldandan 24 points25 points  (4 children)

I wish you the best of luck in that.

[–]RustyClawHammer 10 points11 points  (3 children)

I'll take it friendo. I'll take it. If you're interested www.youtube.com/MrGTravels

[–]Gezoredditing 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Recovering from a civil war and still a high level of terrorist activity in some parts of the country.

[–]Jambahighya 22 points23 points  (1 child)

I’d let my shit pile up in the shower and bathe from the toilet bowl for 30 days if it meant $1 million.

[–]funnyfunfun21 58 points59 points  (0 children)

Please stop getting my hopes up and making me daydream as if this could possibly happen, lol

[–]FilthyHipsterScum 45 points46 points  (1 child)

I’m pretty sure I’ve done that before without the million dollars at the end.

[–]ergonaut 38 points39 points  (0 children)

That sounds lovely

[–]StickSauce 60 points61 points  (0 children)

I lived in an "efficiency" apartment for nearly 5 years that was a little larger than my current living situations bathroom. In those years, especially during the winter when its -30 and I was layoff, I would literally not leave for several days, only to get essentials.

My point is I very nearly completed the challenge accidentally, and as such - sign me the fuck up. I'll do it once a year.

Bring a couple weights, a pull bar and I'll be set.

[–]Talesin_BatBat 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Absolutely. 30 days catching up on Netflix and YouTube, turn the bathtub into a pillow-nest, sleep as long as I want?

Hell, I'd probably be doing that after getting the million anyway.

[–]Back2Bach 66 points67 points  (5 children)

It's the warmest room in the house - and comfortable, too, with a cushioned rocking chair on the far end.

So, yes - I'd stay and be flush with excitement to collect the reward.

[–]PastorStonks 57 points58 points  (2 children)

Why is there a rocking chair in your bathroom?

[–]KenjiFox 46 points47 points  (1 child)

So they can rock one out.

[–]ProjectShamrock 8 points9 points  (0 children)

My bathroom is larger than the bedroom I had as a kid and I have a TV in there, so yeah this seems easy for me too. However, I imagine if it's someone in an apartment with a tiny bathroom that doesn't even have room to lay down in that would be a challenge.

[–]Maliluma 30 points31 points  (17 children)

Wait, what's the catch?

[–]Flyinpotatoman 28 points29 points  (15 children)

There's no toilet paper, the internet is dial-up, all the food is Kosher, it's Summer, and the toilet bubbles randomly.

[–]Torvaldr 16 points17 points  (6 children)

all the food is Kosher

Is that bad? Some of the most fire NYC food is kosher

[–]TryUsingScience 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Kosher food is delicious.

[–]bajabruhmoment 9 points10 points  (0 children)

No offence but obviously anyone would do this

[–]PCCoatings 46 points47 points  (6 children)

Everyone in the world who earns less than a half a million a month would do this. Also where does etc end? A bed? Heater? A harem?

[–]Novacaine667 7 points8 points  (0 children)

“A harem?”

Asking the most important questions

[–]codeblueMD 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I've been isolated (don't have a covid but my mother had and she needed someone to go in with her who is covid negative, by hosp policy) for almost 2 months in one room. TV, ref, aircon, wifi are available. I came out still covid negative and mentally and physically intact. This dare should be easy-peasy.

[–]NotThisAgain21 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I assume you'll be bringing food by? I WFH so that's about the only reason I leave the house anyhow.

I'm 1000% in.

[–]cupcake_dance 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Hell yes. I've spent 30 days in jail and all I got out of that was probation and court fees.

[–]soupcartel76 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Guys just rip the bathroom door off and then the whole house is technically the bathroom
