    Somebody with a lot of money loses an eye. They decide they don't want to go through the rest of life with just one eye. You happen to have the same blood type as this person...

    You are offered $10,000,000 for one of your eyes to be used as a transplant. (Whichever one of your eyes has better vision)

    Yes, that's 10 million dollars. Let's say USD for the sake of consistency.

    Would you do the deal? Assume you can't get a replacement eye of your own.

    I would not do this for any amount of money. Sure it's a lot but it's just not worth it to me.

    I wouldn't do it either, it'd be a bitch to have no depth perception.

    I kind of like my eye. I am very attached to them after all. The whole process of selling my eye would go against my "Eye for an Eye" philosophy on life.

    I'd really have to think about that one. Would it be painless? Is there risk of infection? Is it legal?

    I'm trying to think about it, and once I'm out of the Army, I might not need the 2nd eye so much. Sure, it's handy, but so's 10 mil. Some of the stuff, I could just hire someone to do for me.

    Umm, hopefully you have depth perception right now. Losing an eye makes you LOSE depth perception, it doesn't give it to you ;).

    I would keep my eye aswell, I dont really care about the money and I dont know what i would do with it anyway, and I like how I see life at the moment.

    Sorry, but I like both my eyes and I've had them since I was born. They've seen a lot so I'm not willing to part with them.

    Heck no and you could even triple that I still wouldn't bite. They can get an implant just like anybody else just as fast and then wait for a transplant.

    My vision is worth more to me than any amount of money so I wouldn't take the offer.
