Would You Rather

Would You Rather… Rich 100 years ago, or Avg. now?

June 3, 2011

OMG this is a good one :) Big props to NPR and Brad from Time’s MoneyLand for circulating this around – very clever!  I was starting to run out of some good ones over the years, haha…. so here we go – a new Would You Rather! Courtesy of MoneyLand: Would you rather: A. Live in 1900 and make $70,000 a year. or B. Live […]

Would You Rather… Millions vs. Teleporting

February 4, 2011

Hahaha… oh man, it’s been WAY too long since our last Would You Rather… remember the “1 year of your life vs. $100,000” one?  I miss these crazy things :)  And also, I’m way too tired to write an actual post today, haha…my brain is so fried right now. In fact, I had to use Google to help me come up with a good one! […]

Would You Rather… Life vs. $100,000

June 25, 2010

Woohoo!  My first “Would You Rather” of the year! Remember when I used to do these like every other month? I guess there’s only so many you can do until you run out of ideas though, at least if we’re sticking to the financial mold.  It’s probably good that I can’t throw out any of my REAL feisty ones anyways ;) If you ever make […]

Would You Rather… Sex vs. Money edition.

November 6, 2009

It’s Friday, and I think we could all use a Would You Rather! It’s getting harder to pick out some goods that we haven’t done already, but I think today’s is juicy enough to stir up some action ;) Although technically, it’s more of a “Would you give up ___ for ___” kinda deal, but the concept is pretty much the same – you have […]

"Would You Rather?" Case Study – Less Money, More Time

October 2, 2009

Guest Post by Brian Scheur A couple of weeks ago J. Money did one of his “Would You Rather?” posts where he asked individuals what choice they’d prefer in a given situation.That specific post focused on the choice between an extra hour every day or an extra $100 a week? Most people that commented said they would prefer the extra money (including myself). Now, let’s […]

Would You Rather…Have extra MONEY or extra TIME?

August 28, 2009

It’s time to play another rousing game of Would You Rather! My brain is still reeling from the $50 vs Sex poll I wrote about earlier, but since we already covered that one I thought I’d bring up the ol’ “money vs. time” dilemma. It might not be as sexy, but it’s still interesting to think about: “Would You Rather…Have an extra $100 of income […]

Would you rather… Money vs. Job edition

July 10, 2009

Wow it’s been a long time since I’ve done a “would you rather“. I feel like we need one of these to get our brains in think-mode today. After all, it’s Feisty Friday! So here’s the question – give it some thought and drop a line w/ your answer. You never know when it just might come true ;) “Would you rather be rich with […]

Would You Rather…Be UGLY and rich, or HOT w/ less?

March 5, 2009

It’s been 57 days since my last “would you rather”, and I have missed ’em dearly. So not only do we bring ’em back today, but we reach into the classics and pull out a favorite! We go all the way back to ancient times when Old Babylon was ruled all of the lands…or not, i’m not entirely sure. I don’t even know if Babylon […]

Would you Politically, and Publicly, sell out for $10,000?

November 21, 2008

This one may be my favorite yet. It’s not exactly a “would you rather” question, but it should definitely do the trick. You know why? Because it involves politics…..AND money. Both of which coule rile you up in a heartbeat ;) And what fun would this world be without testing your limits? So while the elections are still in the rear view mirror and nobody’s […]

Would You Rather: Take a big $ loss now, or slowly over time?

October 10, 2008

Today’s “Would you rather” question comes from one of our readers here – my boy Philip – and it circles around the economy these days. I don’t know about you, but people around here are starting to freak out more every day, and it’s starting to get out of hand. So with that in mind, Philip and I bring you the latest from our fun […]

Time for another "Would you rather" question! (a hard one)

August 19, 2008

So here it is. You’re sitting in a room with all of your closest friends and family, and the mayor of your city singles you out and asks you to come up to the front. He/she tells you that the city has a proposal for you, and you MUST answer it no matter what. The question is: “The city would like to offer you money, […]

Would you rather…take $500k now, or $1 million in ten years?

June 20, 2008

I know some of you can’t sleep without a “would you rather” question every now and then (that someone being me), so figured i’d throw one out there to celebrate this glorious Friday. That, and I’m also trying to procrastinate here at work….only 12 more minutes to go ;) I came up with it when i was commenting on Mrs Micha’s “question and answer” post: […]

Would you rather…Default on all loans, OR…

May 26, 2008

I know i just did one of these last week (the George Bush deal), but they’re so much fun! And plus it’s Memorial Day – which means it’s a holiday, and I can do whatever i want ;) That, and it’s also my blog. haha… Since I won’t be up bright and early like usual on a Monday morning, I was sure to plop this […]

George Bush offers to give you $2 million, BUT…

May 19, 2008

One of my favorite games EVER is playing “would you rather” – especially on long road trips with all of my friends. While most of the questions end up turning out pretty graphic and need censorship (sorry, can’t post those here!), they always start out nice and thought-provoking like, “would you rather be super hot but smell horrible, OR would you rather be ugly but […]
