You are being forced to spend the next 10 years of your life in a basement. After those 10 years, you will receive $10 mil. Your basement comes fully furnished with a good bed, sink, a toilet, a shower and a trash chute. You are also being given a bonus 30 points to spend on items/amenities that you can take with you to your basement. BONUS BONUS: If you half your $10 mil payout to $5 mil, you will receive 35 points to spend. If you reduce your payout to zero, you receive 40 points.
Stumbled upon this from a Stoolie email. Not sure if its new or old but either way I don’t think we’ve ever done it on Barstool. $10 million for 10 years in a basement, minimal items/amenities can be brought. What are you bringing? Take some time to overlook the point totals, decide whether you want $10 mil/30 points, $5 mil/35 points or $0/40 points.
Its a harder question than you think. Lets start with the basics that we’re absolutely eliminating.
The Doctor. You know how many times I’ve been to the doctor for like a check up in the past 10 years? Like once. No chance a doctor is worth 2 points. Neither is some Mayo Clinic idiot for 3. Doctor is out. If I die, I die.
Satellite radio - Satellite radio completely sucks. Whether I’m trapped in a basement for 10 years or not, I ain’t listening to that shit.
Gun – I guess in case you wanna kill yourself? Or in the event you’re picking Barry Bonds to live with you, you need self defense? I dunno. I won’t need a gun to chill in a basement for 10 years.
Full model train set in a warehouse – Uhh. What? Train model set? To keep me busy or some shit? And let me guess you health freaks want the warehouse so you can run or something. Keep your eye on the prize you fucking assholes. Model train and warehouse is out of the question.
Get your money up front and you get access to the stock market – I have absolutely no idea how to make money in the stock market right now. If I did, I’d be investing. Now all the sudden I’m confined to a basement with minimal knowledge of whats gonna be going on in the world and I’m gonna be some sort of Warren Buffet? Fuck that. If I still knew how to calculate the net present value of 10 mil invested at a risk free rate for 10 years, I’d figure that out. But I don’t. So fuck that too. Either way, not worth 7 points.
Workshop/drawing table with tools – I ain’t Bob Vila or Picasso now. I won’t be in that basement either. Out.
HD Camera – No.
Ok. Those are the automatics outs I think. The rest are forms of food, technology, recreation, entertainment and life for the next 10 years. Lets start with basics.
