    Assuming no other readily available source of water. (You're alone in the desert or somesuch)

    I'd rather use that million dollars to get me off the desert vs using the money to get a glass of water, and then die of thirst a few days later.

    I think the question should be "How rich would you have to be before you'd pay 1$ million for a glass of water?"

    I would play dead, wait for some vulture to come near me, then grab it really quick, snap its neck and drink its blood.

    Saves me $1 million.

    I'd just punch the guy with the water and steal it. Then when he comes to, blame Durf.

    If it meant the difference between survival and death, such as me being 2 days away from civilization/water sources but knowing I'd die from thirst in less than that, obviously I would. Can't spend money when you're dead (I assume :lol: ). Besides, I don't wanna die from thirst cause then I won't go to Valhalla!

    Come on, get real.

    I'm assuming what Steve means is that the glass of water is the only thing standing between you and certain death. If you had a million dollars, you'd hand it over gladly for that water. I think it might occur to you eventually that the milbuck was useless without you being alive to spend it.

    i d die of thirst since i dont have so much money

    apart from that, if i had the money and if no other unlogic element of this question would come into game ( like rather use the money for leaving the place / more than 1 glas of water; stealing it, and all the points mentioned ) i d surely pay since, as also mentioned, there s no use for money when u r dead

    I'd be thirsty enough to ask a stupid question about how much I would pay for a drink; but that's my limit.

    if i ever come to the point in my life where i ask myself the question "My god, the only way i can survive is to spend this well earned million dollars i got playing seniors in bingo on that single glass of water that just happens to be over there." i'll wish that i had cared more about this thread.

    how long is one glass of water going to fight off death?

    and I don't have a million dollars, if someone made me the offer I'd say sure, what an idiot they must be thinking a dying fool in the desert has $1 million to blow

    Suppose you and your partner robbed a bank (and by some odd chance you managed to get away with a million bucks in cash) you took off into the desert and then your vehicle broke down.

    You're carrying the cash he's carrying the water.

    Depends on how big the glass is. I don't want to be ripped off!
