There's an old joke I was told once by my
grandfather that relates to this:
A man walks up to an attractive young lady at a
social function and asks her if she would sleep
with him for one million dollars. The lady laughs
and tells him for one million dollars, she'd
sleep anywhere. So the man then asks if she would
sleep with him for $25 and the lady gets
indignant, asking what kind of woman does he
think she is? "We've already established that,"
he tells her. "Now we're just haggling on the
Yes, everyone has a price. If someone walked ip
with one million dollars in their hand and
offered to buy my Larva and Garline cel, I could
not turn them down seeing as that money would buy
a house, pay off all my husband's and my school
loans, pay for the rest of our car, and still
leave hundreds of thousands in savings for us.
But what the people here are saying is that the
lowest price at which they would no longer
reply "what kind of collector do you think I
am?!" (^_~) would be so insanely high that no one
in their right mind would pay it.
I don't consider such to be a character flaw - I
consider it to be *COMMON SENSE*. ^_~ The fact
that "everyone has a price" still does NOT mean
the whole world is, or should be, for sale. And
it does NOT ethically excuse profit-mongers, even
if they are excused by law.
