Earlier this week, I brought up the topic of tipping. Everybody assumed I just meant the food serving industry, but I meant all tipping in general. Who do you, and I mean you as the person bearing your journalname, do you tip if service is adequate?

You have a choice. Serve 5 years in prison, starting next year, or serve 10 years in prison, starting at the age of 60. Which do you choose?

5 years starting next year

10 years starting at 60

Speaking of old age. I've asked before if you'd be willing to lose the use of your leg for considerable wealth, or the ability to properly achieve orgasm for considerable wealth, and both times, the vast majority of you said no. Here's the latest offer. Would you be willing to cut your life expectancy short by 5 years (off the back end of your life) in exchange for considerable wealth now?

Yes
