    It would take a lot more than $500 for me to do any of those things.

    I think I'd drink my own urine. I know where it's been. Plus I could drink like a gallon or two of water before hand. After the piss is coming in nice and clear I figure it wouldn't have much taste anyway. Then bottoms up!

    You'd definately have to 'up-the-ante' to get much outta this poll.

    How about going from $500 to $5000..???

    I like eating wasabi. Mixing it with tartar sauce and vinegar would be easiest $ I ever made.

    You should see the looks on the chef's faces when I go out for sushi...

    Wait a minute. Do you mean US currency??



    Ummmm... no.

    I have eaten sauteed baby eels (and asked for more!), egg shells (boiled), and orange juice on breakfast cereal. I've slept in train stations in various places throughout Europe.

    But $500 won't even buy a good wheelset.

    I'd drink the urine for sure. I'd probably not talk for a week, except it would be hard on my kids... not really fair to them as they are too young to understand. I'd also live homeless if I could shower/dress for work (so I don't get fired).

    Well, duh. Of course, $500 was the equivalent of $7000 now. :p

    Shoot... I'd do the tartar sause, Vinegar and Wasabi for $5

    In fact, I may try it tonight just for kicks

    Ricewine vinegar, Wasabi, and a little Mayo blended up right might make a good salad dressing.

    I wonder if the warm urine would help wash away the tartar/wasabi/vinegar burn...

    Heck $500 doesn't even pay for two trips to Costco for my family. Darn kids and their affinity for food...

    I ate eel before too, but it was in a soup with tiny fish and other scary aquatic things. It was tasty. I used to work with some dudes from Cambodia who were great cooks if not a little eccentric in food choices.
