An eccentric millionaire offers to donate a large sum to charity if you will step--completely naked--from your car onto a busy downtown street, walk four blocks, and climb back into the car. Knowing that there would be no danger of physical abuse, would you do it?
A large sum of what? Money? Tangerines? Pencil erasers? This is a very non-specific kind of question. And to which charity would we be donating the erasers? Is it a charity of my choice? That may effect my decision. And what city's downtown area are we talking about? 4 blocks in Roanoke, VA is a lot different than 4 blocks in Manhattan.
What it comes down to is that I wouldn't do it. And believe me, any charity would be thanking me for making the choice to remain clothed, no matter how many erasers they could have gotten from the crazy rich guy.
