Many people study is for a good job and make money, if somebody give you 10m pounds and ask you totally stop studying from now on until your whole life, would you do that?


ps:somebody said it's not a good english sentence, hope someone can help make it correcter,

I dunno if it'd be a good idea for you OP, seems like you need a few more english lessons.

Be more specific on the 'stop studying' part. Does it mean I can never learn anything new again, i'm stuck with the only the knowledge I have now? I'd probably leave the money. I have to drop out of formal education? $$$.

For how long? And is studying the same as gaining knowledge for the fun of it? If so, I think I'd refuse.

I'd take the money and run.
There are so many business oportunities which can be had for £10 million I wouldn't really need 6th form anymore.

Holy God, yes.

In fact, if I did drop out, I'd be entitled to an Ordinary LL.B Degree anyway.

If I was asked would I do it for £500,000 - that would be a rather more challenging question.

Can you define 'studying'? Do you mean merely formal study? Because it's a bloody good question if the definition is wider.

lol @ the blatantness of louisedotcom's answer.

No. I actually like learning, and I wouldn't be able to get the jobs that I want without the degree. And ten million pounds won't even get you anywhere nowadays. Most people who'd take the money would probably blow it in a few years and then end up poor and without an education. Heck, it's what happens to a lot of lottery winners.

I entirely agree with her. Hell, I'd suck off a 90 year old bloke for ten million quid.

Yeah, but most intelligent people generally suspect themselves to be a bit more prudent than that.

I'd only really need to spend a couple of million of that on myself. The rest I could happily invest in other things or use for my own business ventures. You really couldn't ask for a better head start if you were looking to become enormously wealthy.
