9. I take killing things very seriously, but for 10 million dollars...
yes, I would do it.

A lot of good can be done in the world for 10 million dollars. (Including helping animals.)

That being said, I'm a vegetarian and really find the thought of killing anything extremely disturbing.

(I strongly suspect that there's a story behind this that I don't know. I'm assuming that this is a legitimate question though rather than a copycat.)
