SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
Not to be confused with Spock’s ”Live LONG and prosper.”
This blog entry is actually the sequel (answer) to yesterday’s Question of the Day! : ”What would you do for a million dollars?” I found a fun and at times absolutely hillarious site that deals with this very question. Apparently a book is also in the near future…
Kali Holloway (

WHAT WOULD KALI DO FOR A MILLION DOLLARS?

In essence, readers can write in to Kali and make dares (and questions) that she has to consider. Naturally, if she accepts and actually follows thru, then the reader(s) would have to give Kali a million dollars (!)….I am not certain if Kali has made any money from this so far, but here are some of the things that readers suggested:
WOULD YOU EAT A SERVING OF HUMAN FLESH?
Kali accepted this!
Find out why! Link
The only real debate was on how to prepare and cook the meat!!
WOULD YOU HAVE SEX WITH A SHEEP?
Sorry, but you will have to read this Link
to find out her answer!
WOULD YOU LIVE IN CHERNOBYL FOR A YEAR?
Find out why not! Link
Would you be homeless (meaning “living on the street and/or in shelters,” NOT “couch surfing with friends”) for a year?
No way! (Kali was worried about the high mortality rate of the homeless. Also afraid of being raped.) Link
Kali accepted! ”I love the getting-down-like-David-Duchovny-at-a-drunken-office-Xmas-party questions because I am pretty much always willing to do dares that would get me fired real quick like and then ”punish” me with a million dollars. It’s like, “Oh, no! Please don’t give me a way out of this 40 hour a week Sartre play and then, double please, please don’t give me a shitload of money I can and will use to buy happiness.” As far as I can see, this is win-win. Yes all over this one. Very, very yes! I would love to never see half my co-workers again anyway, and I think arousing myself to orgasm (real orgasm, ladies! The Spice Girls did not sacrifice their lives so we would have to fake our orgasms!) in front of aaaaaallllll of them should just about do the trick. I mean, who would say no to this? Who cares what people at work think of you? You’d never have to go there again (duh. Is this thing on?). I am so into this one it’s not even funny.” Link
Kali is a real trooper! Yes! ‘’Can I ask who wouldn’t? …But I am not paying for the croissant out of my million dollars. Cuz that croissant kind of sucked.’’ Link
And many, many more (entertaining) dares LinkSPRAGGETT ON CHESS
