If you could kill someone you knew, and get away with it who had a winning lottery ticket of let's say the Euromillions of £25,000,000, would you go through with it?

The topic title seems a little misleading, I came in thinking it was going to be about how Neowin displays ads or uses the money they get from Sub's. You should change it to something like "How Greedy are you" or "How greedy are the members of Neowin" Just a thought.

 

And no, there is no amount of money you could give me to take the life of another human being. You can't put a dollar amount on a life.

Definitely would not... all the things that money could buy would not erase the guilt I would carry. Plus, karma's a b****, who knows what would happen later. Not worth it.

Someone losing a life over a lottery ticket is cockamamie. The gov't takes half of your money anyways.

What if that person was terminally ill, in pain and asked you do to it, and you would still get the money afterwards. Does that change your perspective?

Of course not, it's just Money. You think 25m will make you happier or better off? We already have a house, a computer, internet and enough food to survive but clearly we need more.... :/ Whoever thinks they need more are naive and whoever would kill for more should be killed.

If he/she asked I would let that up to his/her doctors to handle and then I would only take the money if I was given the money by the person who one it. Anyways, I would never kill someone, life is much move valuable than money.

I like how the pollers are not hidden so I can see who is a closet murderer.
