    I'm spreading the buying of the biscuits across weekends. Last weekend I got raspberry BN's, orange chocolate digestives and jaffa cakes. :yy:

    No. BPD thoughts are not something other people wish to experience.

    Would it be a 1:1 ratio? Obviously we think faster than we see or hear so would the thoughts occupy the same amount of screen time as they do in our heads? Or would the instant it takes me to think "I need milk" or "that girl's cute" appear as a few seconds displayed/read aloud?

    Are the viewers able to rewind, skip about and so on? Or do they have to watch in real time? Is this live or recorded? Is it anonymous?
    The viewers watch it once and it gets beamed into their minds - it plays in one straight line and never stops (like at a cinema). It's shown to the whole world and they can stop and watching as and when they want (just like at a cinema, it still goes on when they're not watching).

    They see the thoughts like you see them and basically see every thought you've had up until now (and no further).

    That makes it a definite no from me then. Effectively it means would you allow the entire world to read your mind for £1,000,000. Most definitely no. Not if it were impossible to reverse. You'd be screwed in pretty much every possible way and £1,000,000 certainly isn't enough to live the rest of your life on.

    I would be interested in trying it out to see how many people I could influence. Are these your thoughts or mine nonsense. But it isn't worth 1 million if it's permanent and forever.

    A million should be enough to live from if you find a good investment plan to yield, say, 4 percent per year.

    Well of course there are things you can do with £1,000,000 but the money itself is not sufficient. Furthermore you're options become pretty limited as to what you can actually do with it.

    Attempts to invest it will most likely fail. If you find something to invest in that actually gives decent returns then great. Until some of the 7 billion people seeing your thoughts decide to do the same thing. And as soon as loads of people jump on the bandwagon you'll be unable to make any money. It'll become oversaturated and will soon stop yielding any sort of meaningful return.

    So I think investing is a terrible idea in this scenario. And I've assumed you actually know what you're doing. If you have no business experience you're in an even worse position.

    The only thing that prevents me from investing right now is that I do not have a million. I think it is a big showstopper.

    Theoretically unless someone announces to everyone, how would anybody consequential know that my thoughts are available?
    Might consider a deal in that case.
