What's the bottom limit at which you'd revise that?  Would you be willing to cut off a pinky?

for moderate sums of cash, hell yeah I'd cut off a pinky.

I've got $5 (but, you have to use that money to pay for the postage to mail me the pinky.)

There was a very recent case of two hikers who died in Colorado or California who could have been found in a matter of hours if they had paid $5 to rent one of the Forest Services' transponders from the base camp, but chose not to.

That level of stupidly is very entertaining.  Do they get the Discount Darwin Award?

See, get 5 bucks from Joel for cutting off your pinky, and you can rent a transponder so you don't have to cut off your pinky.

To make matters worse I think some searchers died looking for them.
