What would you do for a million pounds?

Last night 'Indecent Proposal' was being shown again on TV.

As always when I watch it I think 'Oh come on Demi and Woody! take the money... its Robert Redford! I mean if it was some fat ugly, sweaty, horrid millionaire then maybe It might take a bit longer for the two of you to consider sleeping with him! but it's Robert Redford we're talking about here!

Steve and I have discussed this issue over the years and have agreed that if Robert Redford were ever approach us and ask if I'd sleep with him for a million dollars we would both ok with it! no probs. LOL.

This reminded me of the 'What would you do for a million quid' game that my friends and I played after the film came out, which very quickly changed into the 'How much money would it take for you to...'

So...
If someone was really showing you the cash, ready to give it to you, how much money would it take for you to ...
(at today's rate $1,000,000 is just over £500,000)

1. Sleep with Robert Redford?
2. Eat a Mealybug?
3. Do a Parachute Jump?
4. Be locked in a room full of thousands of spiders for an hour?
5. Sing solo live on stage at Live Aid to be broadcast around the world?
6. Eat Black Pudding?
7. Sleep with George W. B?
8. Walk naked down the street?
9. Be locked in a room in total darkness for a day?
10. Walk a tightrope across Niagara Falls? (how much with safety harness and how much without?)

1. Sleep with Robert Redford?

LOL £1? no seriously, as he is now maybe £5!

2. Eat a Mealybug?
£100 maybe.

3. Do a Parachute Jump?
Hard one - I'm scared of flying so jumping out of a plane is a horrid thought - I'm not sure I could even do it for £1,000,000 but that's a hell of a lot of money to be offered! maybe I might - I think I would maybe give it a go for £2,000,000.

4. Be locked in a room full of millions of spiders for an hour?
£1,000 and an hours not really that long. I'd be scared of being locked in the room. I'm not scared of spiders!

5. Sing solo live on stage at Live Aid to be broadcast around the world? (I know it was a charity event! but still...)
£1 I'd have loved to have done it! If I was bad It would be forgotten about by now.

6. Eat Black Pudding?
£1 I like black pudding! maybe I could pretend I didn't and get £10!

7. Sleep with George W. B?
Hmmm.... £3,000,000 maybe.

8. Walk naked down a busy street (not a nudist place)?
Depends which street. If it's my street where people know me about £400,000 as it would buy me a very nice house in the area afterwards! (if I wasn't too embarrassed to still live here!) If it was somewhere where It was guaranteed that no one would know me about £1,000. (I'd have no probs walking naked at a nudist place)

9. Be locked in a room in total darkness for a day?
LOL Isn't that what I did for a living for years as a Photographer only earning a pittance?
£24,000 (a thousand pounds an hour) again not scared of the dark but would be scared of being locked in.

10. Walk a tightrope across Niagara Falls? (how much with safety harness and how much without?)
£500,000 with harness (again it would be enough for a very nice house)  wouldn't do it for any amount without - I can't walk a tightrope and I'd be too dead to spend it!

How much money would it take you to do these 10 things?

Please ask me any other questions but put how much money you would do it for first!
