If I was being selfish, I would take the million. To be honest, I would not want to be in control of a vast amount of money, because I believe that it
is very difficult to have possession of such an amount without being negatively affected by it.
However, if I was being fair, I would go for the one hundred million. You see, with a million pounds for instance, I could make myself comfortable,
provide for my son, provide for my mother, offer something to my sister and her husband, look out for my friends, invest a little, and maybe do a
little charitable donating.
With one hundred million, I could do all of that, but with a vastly extended ability to expand the charitable angle. Hell, with that kind of money, I
could make a significant difference to the lives of a huge number of the worlds poorest and most poverty ridden people. Digging huge numbers of wells
and installing pumps and purification systems to prevent people dying from thirst, or because they slaked their thirst, would be something which one
hundred million pounds would really help with, especially if it was all dropped directly on the problem, rather than on organisations operating in
Just pay the money, get the plumbers on a plane, get the holes dug, the pumps installed, and then out again.
