    And yet there are many people who do. This is one of the reasons why so many people aren't wealthy, this idea that money will corrupt you. Have a little more respect for yourself. Money doesn't have to corrupt you; it can give you the opportunities to do more important things.

    Example:

    What amount of money would convince you never to participate/play anything related to StarCraft II ever again. If you do, all the money/assets go poof.

    A. $1,000

    B. $10,000

    C. $100,000

    D. $1,000,000

    E. $100,000,000

    Feel free to answer.
    $1,000,000 for me. It's enough money to start/buy a company and make even more money!

    No thanks. After hearing what happened to some people who won the lottery, yeah, I don't want to get suddenly rich at all. If I want to get rich, I would want to work for it.

    My StarCraft Hardcore Fan Pride made me take option #3 but I'll keep the money.

    Yes money = power
    Yes power currupts weak people
    No, I will be the same guy
    but would the people around me do the same?

    Spent all of their money, almost lost their "new" house, and generally had their life ruined.

    And that's because they were hanging out with the wrong crowd and had blood-sucking lawyers and gold-diggers at their throat?

    Which usually comes with large loads of money that is gained in a small amount of time. That is why I don't want these riches. If I had it, it would kinda of defeat my rason detre, my reason for being. I have a goal in life, I do not want that usurped by anything.
