How much money is your little finger worth to you?

I don't use my right pinky. I need the left one to play bass, but I've never used my right one for plucking, or anything else but typing. Three and a thumb are enough. So, the least I'd settle for is 300 dollars.

Well, I reckon it's worth whatever someone will give me for it. I think I'd hold out if the highest bid was 300; that's some mighty fine DNA right there.

Can't put an exact amount on it, to be honest. If someone were offering me a huge chunk of money, maybe. But it would have to be a life-changing amount of money. Otherwise, no way. That's a lifelong disability, and your pinky is actually not as useless as most people think.

Is there a market out there for little fingers? Rich industrialists needing little finger transplants, perhaps?

$300? Something tells me you'd change your mind at the cutting block. That's 3 days of pay...

It'd have to be at least $100,000 for me, probably more like $300,000.

Five figures for left pinky, six figures for right. I do ALL of my shifting and entering with my right pinky. The only thing my left pinky sees any use for is the three keys it hits, plus the four right pinky characters that need shifting: aqz P:"?

My right pinky is broken and useless.
I can bend it sideways almost 90 degrees with little effort.
I could post images if you like.
I am tempted to remove it myself.

I would like to keep the bones as a keepsake.
Is that possible in your business plan?

I guess my pinkies sort of get used as additional muscle while drumming. Anybody want my pinky toe? It does nothing but sit there and look ugly, and it's always the least parallel to the other toes.

You wouldn't think so, but pinkie toes are crucial to your balance. Take your shoes off, lean to the side, and see how much work your pinkie toe is doing.

This to me has arrived a VERY diffucult decision to make. I mean, If I were a girl, I would be the baddest whore on the block ... hell if I had customers i would whore myself for the moolla ... come to think about it after this post I will try craigslist. But back on topic, my love of money, now that I think about it very carefully, is only matched by my love of self.

So no ... I dare not put a price on my limbs.

Well it depends...
If we're talking about it just being gone with no pain or healing required, 250,000 dollars sounds like a nice round arbitrary number. If you're interested in taking it off with a cleaver, It'll cost a lot more.

Will Cristal be served beforehand?

Regardless, I cannot put a price on that amount of flesh. Though I would want to be handsomely compensated--out of hand--in the event of an accident: to the tune of several hundred thousand...at least $300,000.

I would not give up the left for any amount, since I am left-handed and make my living by typing. The right would have to be enough for me to retire comfortably and give up writing, playing guitar, and piano, so at a minimum, $2 million.
