What Would You Do for $10,000?
Well, I'll tell you what I would do. Today I applied, for the first time in my life, to enter a "reality" type contest where the prize, if you can vanish for a month, is $10,000. I saw this contest advertised a couple of days ago and thought "I could actually do that" as opposed to say Survivor (I don't eat insects) or Amazing Race (I don't go face first down a 25 story building no matter how many ropes are tied to me). But could I actually disappear and evade a small army of people trying to find me? Me thinks yes. So I downloaded and filled out the application, rounded up a few (not so great) photos of myself, and spent hours trying to figure out how the video camera works so that I could make a two minute video of myself as part of the application (I'm hoping they put more weight on the written application as opposed to my oh-so-unprofessional video). There is probably a one in a million chance that I would actually be selected and then, if selected, a one in a million chance I could evade some of the best techies in the US trying to hunt me down but it is so worth the opportunity to try. Plus that $10,000 would really come in handy to help me reach my 400 goals!
