However, we all have a sort of parabolic scale we apply to any activity
indicating our willingness to do the work related to our relative need
at the time, the amount being paid, and the amount of risk or drudgery
the work entails. For each of use there is a point along our axis of
personal wealth where you couldn't get us to do anything we weren't
intererested in for any amount of money. I imagine that the people on
this list could be gotten to do things they were interested in, but
there are plenty of drones in society who have points where they would
not want to do ANYTHING.
