Sacrifice 10 seconds of your memories for $10 million dollars? Sounds
like a pretty sweet deal to me. I would take it, no hesitation. If
it were longer, like a month or something, then I'd have to think
about it. If anything really significant happened in that month, I
would want to hang on to those memories rather than disintegrate them.
