    Definitely not.

    10million can be earned, I would sooner have full ability to move.

    A lot of people willing to have a leg cut off for 10M....

    But how many of you are willing to work equally as hard for it?

    Because willing to lose a leg is a hell of a commitment and shows you REALLY desire the money, if you were that commitment to getting the 10M you wouldn't need to lose a leg anyway.

    Nope, I am not sure of what ten million pounds would buy me that would make up for the disability. I enjoy climbing and running (and generally getting around easily) more than I would enjoy limping around a mansion.

    Definitely! I'd get prosthetic legs and buy myself an isolated house of my dreams and also invest the money in successful businesses.Then I'd sit home and have fun for the rest of my life.

    No, I need both my legs.

    I presume that you didn't think of the possibility of bionic legs costing less than 10 million when you made this post. Despite this, the answer to your question from me is no. Money is a made up concept with no real value. Yes it's good for making exchanges simpler (the days of bartering are long gone) but besides that it is something we can live without. Similar to any other animals, we need food, water, heat and shelter in order to survive and of course both our legs too! (survival of the fittest and all that). Money is just a made up number, giving people a false sense of hope and satisfaction and skewing their image of reality. No matter how much or how little you have, you don't need it to live and of course the government always gets their hands on it somehow!
    If you don't want your made-up numbers I have a Paypal account that you could send them to.

    That sounds real inspiring and all but you got a bit carried away. Money is a placeholder for the value of things. Gone are the days of trading and money is an exchange for the value of a product or service, the value of the coins or note remain the same within the country but can fluctuate internationally due to exchange rates. Money is not a made up number.

    As far not needing it to live, unless you can live completely self-sufficient, that being growing your own food, making your own clothes and form of transport, electricity, water supply etc, you rely on someone else's skills to survive. That someone would require something in exchange for you using their products or services, and that my friend would be money.

    [[EDIT: Although I wouldn't get my legs removed for any price]]

    I was going to say yes, but then I thought of the actual operation and the whole "not having a leg" thing, and I don't genuinely think I would do it.

    I know that prosthetic legs can give you the freedom to do pretty much anything - but there are limits - and I don't feel that there should be a price to put on purposefully limiting your own life.

    That's seriously stupid to do. You can get those artificial legs even for 5mln but it won't be the same. It can be the ugliest thing in the world, in my opinion removing parts its just silly. Opinion.

    I'll assume that it' cheating to get a bionic leg

    No, if it's one leg permanently I would become depressed, movement outside is one of my greatest pleasures in life
