how many points for a 42 yr old fat girl? Since that is what i get in real life why change it just for a basemant.

Adding a mother owning said basement, a person living there, with computer and internet access, describes a Chiefs fan...

How do you get a garden with a green house in a basement?

Is it like how they grow weed and stuff?

Its not an option man, no matter how much you love the wife, you're just gonna have to go in that basement with the tight, perfect looking 18 year old, there's nothing you can do about it man, its out of your hands.

Stinks doesn't it?

That's true. You could blog too. I'd love to read about someone in a mini-biodome.

I might not last 10 years with an 18 yr old. Getting the medical care will be next on the list. Also if i can't bring my saxophone i couldn't go. They should have a choice for a musical instruments instead of video games. Only kids and untalented adults want to play with them.

The BALLER option (+40)
18 year old girl – 18
Unlimited drugs – 5
Kitchen – 6
Medical – 2
Movies/tv shows – 4
Hygeine – 3
Skylight-2


** if the 18 year old can come and go. She can be my drug mule, I can make an unlimited amount of money, and I wouldn’t have to be chaste for 10 years.

I need a pic of the 18 year old before deciding if he is worth 18 points... I'm not crazy about bony knees and stuff.

I hate that it would hypothetically take me losing 10 years of my life to earn only half of what Peyton Manning made last year.

This is a tough one, because if you take the 18 year old, you basically have to choose between the money up front/stock access and having healthcare.... plus you give up the gym and internet.

Okay. Got it. 30 points for the $10 million. Once I have the 10 mil, girls won't be a problem, so in the meantime the trick is to stay alive, in shape, and healthy:

Mayo clinic - 3
Hygiene/Jacuzzi - 3
Kitchen with all the goods (healthy food) - 6
Skylight (need sunlight) - 2

And for exercise:
(A study and library that can hold every published work is going to be enormous, so I can just go jogging in there every day. Not to mention all the reading, plus take the ten years to write a book or three) - 4

For mental health:
Sound system (got to have music) - 4
Garden and greenhouse (hobby) - 2
Train Set (another large area to exercise plus hobby) - 2
Pool table (entertainment) - 1
Cell phone - (Got to have human contact) - 3

The money up front and the stock market is essential....

So internet is 16 points.... what would a subscription to the New York Times/The Economist cost?

kitchen, garden/greenhouse (this also makes the skylight worthless, for the record), workout room, library, cell phone, doctor, computer (only because I need to be able to write--who the **** would care about all the tech? you can't even do anything with it), radio.

it is really sad that every book ever written is only 4 points.

you have no means of writing without taking the computer. good point on the jogging, though.

Here's my cut: You are going to have a ton of time to kill, so the full kitchen, garden, library, and workshop seem like good bets. An 18 year old is going to get super annoying, unless you are really fortunate. It seems the only way to watch Bronco games is the 52" TV package. If there was a cheaper way to do that, I might switch. I'm also banking on sunshine with the greenhouse and hygiene with the medical care. Internet access with the cell would be a plus, but I'm not expecting it.

- Full kitchen, unlimited amounts of the finest ingredients and an iPad that is programmed with every recipe on the planet (iPad for recipe use only) 6 points
- Garden with greenhouse. 2 points
- Medical care from the medical school of New Delhi. 2 points
- Workshop with industrial tools, drawing table and supplies. 6 points
- A cell phone that can only be activated one day a week. 3 points
- Library and study with every book ever published. 4 points
- 52" TV with all the cable channels and premium packages. 7 points

A number of loopholes or interesting side effects, for those bored and interested:

-the greenhouse/garden, as already mentioned, is a source of light that far outstrips the skylight. it is also possible to grow any number of fruit, vegetables, or even drugs in the garden.

-$10 million is a pittance compared to the money you could make from some of these options, including unlimited drugs, the library (more on that later), every movie, etc.

-the doctor counts as human interaction. there also appears to be no limit on visits/calls. barry bonds is also human interaction, which everyone seems to be forgetting. is sex with the girl worth 11 points over bonds? there is no telling how terrible or annoying she could be. barry bonds is also worth bonus points if you are a woman (or a persuasive gay man).

-the radio brings with it news from the outside world, which cuts into the value of the internet. same with the TV.

-every video game ever made would also come with a cell phone and a many, many computers, though it is possible they would not be able to do anything save play the games in question. there are, however, a great deal of games that require an internet connection in order to function, which would presumably be provided. facebook games and the like are also an open question.

-the gun is completely pointless. there a million other ways to kill yourself and/or the girl, the dog, or barry bonds

-if the girl is willing to have sex with you, she is able if not willing to get pregnant as well. you may be able to convince her to start a family in your basement empire. the same holds for barry bonds for the women.

-the library with every book ever published presumably also contains all works that are lost or otherwise no longer extant, which is both an incredible boon to scholarship and global culture, as well as a means of making obscene amounts of money.

-the library should be picked by anyone with an adventurous mindset or a proclivity toward cabin fever, even if they are entirely illiterate. a library which contains every work ever published would be an impossibly colossal structure. it is likely you would not even be able to explore it fully in the ten years given to you. the downside of this is the inability to even obtain certain books without tremendous or even potentially impossible effort, which cuts into the value of the library in some sense. there may, however, be extraordinary automated book delivery systems in place. or the library may be magical. and really, who the **** wouldn't want a magical library?

-the workshop could allow you to construct a number of the other options, including the pool table, the model train, and large portions of the workout room. this only holds if you are talented, of course, and while ten years is a lot of time it is not an eternity. the library would also come with innumerable books aiding you in your attempts to become a skilled blacksmith/carpenter/whatever, as well as the plans for anything ever made for which plans were made public. along similar lines, the library also doubles the kitchen recipe list, provides all written info on gardening and cultivation, and houses extraordinary technical information regarding all of the mechanical or digital objects on this list, which may be used to extend or enhance their functionality.

-the internet, the library, and the all movies/shows options also provide endless amounts of pornography.

-coupling the money up front with the internet would allow you to purchase anything which is sold online, provided you could have it delivered to your basement empire. coupling the internet with any of the other money making options on this list could have the same effect. one of the benefits of these possibilities is increased human interaction. I'm sure we can all think of plenty of ways to turn money into various people arriving at our doorstep.

No not really, lets say you get a cell phone for 3 points and have your buddy take out a loan up front with the guarantee of $10 million in 10 years, which comes out to something like 10,000,000/(1.01: roughly libor)^10 = roughly $905,000. The fact is in this hypothetical there is very little risk to the bank since there is no chance that the money won't come out unless you die which will compare most favorably with other lending risks (since it clearly says ur forced into the basement for 10 years, so ur getting the money alive or dead).

Your buddy can be working with 800K to 900K upfront that he can then give to money manager that takes a cut to manage it for you all the while you bang out a hot piece of 18 year old ass.

Guys, its not that hard, you take sex, food, and medicine and you don't look back.

If you just want to take these hypotheticals to the very edge of logic, then you can get a gun and barry bonds, force him to transfer his money to you over the internet, then shoot him and use the internet to call for help from a private paramilitary group to break open the basement and not even have to do 10 years.

You have to draw the line somewhere.

I'm thinking that once you, along with any companions, goes down into the basement that none will leave for 10 years. Any Dr visits would have to be done in the basement with little contact as possible. Since you are being forced in this situation, its safe to say that the interaction will be monitored.

Regarding the greenhouse, plants can grow thru man made light, so those of you expecting sunlight thru the greenhouse need to account for that.

Regarding other forms of interaction, there is none. You are shut off from the outside world unless you spend pts on that interaction (Girl/Bonds, computer, radio, etc). Your supplies will be lowered to you.
