    It all depends on the conditions. If I can come out of jail after a year, with no criminal record, the 500k and return to my job then yeah I would spend a year in a jail. That's a no brainer and if the OP has made the scenario like this he/she has made it a bit too easy?

    Perhaps the OP should have added that you would have a criminal record and would have to look for a new job after you come out of prison (after a year) with the 500k? That sort of scenario would really make people think harder?

    It depends. I wouldn't if it was one of those prisons for the most dangerous criminals, or if it was a prison similar to that shown in the series "Oz."

    Could be interesting to experience but would need all the info before deciding. Might still be difficult to get a job after..."what have you done for the last year?" "well i went to prison and got paid 500k for it"...awkward.

    True that, true that.

    But I'm 98% sure I'd say yes to be honest :P

    It depends? Would I be in Jail of the rest of my life or would I be released after 10 years having saved a few million?

    Also, what would you spend £500K on in Jail anyway? It's not like you could nip out to Tesco or Currys to buy a 100'' TV?

    Also, you've said nothing about the prices of commodities in prison. The black market of goods could contain very inflated prices. For example, the person who smuggles inn a mobile phone for you may want £100K because of the risk they face of getting caught.

    After working in a prison for 4 years, I would definitely say I would, though it would have to be on the proviso that I could continue with my current job after the year was up.
