Question of the Day: 26.
I call this The Donny Osmond Dilemma:
Would you accept payment of enough money to live comfortably for the rest of your life if doing so meant that you would never, ever, ever be taken seriously in your chosen field again?
Say you're a writer: you'll get paid, say, $20 million but the moment you cash that check, nobody will ever take you seriously as a writer again. Or you're a singer, or a doctor, or oceanographer... whatever it is, you'll be comfortable, never worry about money, but everybody will simply shake their heads when they hear about you and maybe even chuckle.
