    A thread from another forum got me thinking about something. There are tons of time in life that guys will say, "I'd give my left nut for that/one of those/etc." I've said it countless times, but it can't always be true. It could really only happen once.

    So here's the scenario:

    You only have one left nut, so you can only exchange it for one item.
    It has to be a material item...not a woman, an amount of money, or an intangible.
    You have to keep the item...no trading for something really expensive and selling it.
    No groups of items...no truckloads of Ferraris, harbors full of boats, or vaults full of guns.
    You must be selfish...no houses for parents, buildings for churches, or firetrucks for your town.
    Since I'm not sure what the female equivalent of a left nut would be (I know what it would be anatomically, but not psychologically), ladies get to decide what body part they'd give up.

    You've got the ground rules...what would you choose?

    All of those restrictions kinda ruin the point of giving up a nut don't they? And why not a right nut?

    There have to be rules, or it would devolve into complete anarchy...anarchy I tell you. It can be the right one if you want; I've just always heard folks use the left one in the expression.

    I've already got my kids, I'd give both nuts. One for a really sweet civilian-legal military jet (the Hawker Hawk jumps immediately to mind) and one for a nice small airport with a hangar to keep it in.

    Failing that, I'd exchange my nut for something that would give me a source of income. A painting I could charge people to see, or something (your rules say I can't sell it).

    I'd give my left nut for 500 acres, a decent sized house built in the middle and off the grid, with a shooting range, all located in a conservative state.

    Crap...I meant to specify that you couldn't give up both to get a complementing item. I like your painting idea though...thinking outside the box.

    I'd give my left nut for the Arc of the Covenant. While not a religious person I could really milk that one. Probably even take over countries holding that type of power.

    I might possibly trade it for one of those incredibly lavish, HUGE yachts that billionaires just love to entertain guests on. I'd live on it year round, traveling the globe and picking up the most beautiful women every port had to offer. Eventually, I would have a harem with an incredible selection of women from around the globe and I'd become the worlds most prestigious pimp the world has ever seen, capable of hand delivering said beautiful women to these multi billionaires by pulling right up to their dock. I would frequent all of the great parties and hang out with Hugh Hefner at the mansion on my "off days". :wavey:

    Don't you think doing that might put a damper on a recent event in your life? No not the job.

    I was going to say there want nothing I wanted enough for the sacrifice, but this is something I'd do (make it 5,000 acres, though).
