I'd go with clear skin forever with never having to worry about it. I'd also rather earn my money.

I think it comes down to how much your skin bothers you and whether you believe you could clear your skin if you had enough money.

Personally, I'm not convinced any amount of money could buy you the ideal, porcelain perfection look.

I'd rather have it over the money. If you feel uneasy, its prob cuz your jealous and overwhelmed by its beauty.

Take the money and learn how to not care about what people think of you. If you're a millionaire you'll have everything you've ever wanted--even hot chicks (for the wrong reason but still) =)

I choose perfect, flawless skin.
I figure if I chose money, I would have two problems to worry about - people trying to scam me for money (trust issues), AND bad skin.

I've often pondered the scenario, after all half my time is spent thinking about acne especially this week.

When my skin is under control I'd probably take the money. I've socially isolated myself so much, that my ultimate goal is to have enough money to be self sufficient and live in isolation out in the desert somewhere. Never having to worry about seeing anyone, or any responsibilities that require you to interact with other people. Ahh bliss. 100 million would allow me to do that comfortably.

Of course if I had perfect clear skin, that might all change. But would it? Would I actually become more outgoing overnight? I think I might just obsess over my clear skin looking for the slightest imperfection to justify my anti-social behavior. Also, if I really did change, I just know it wouldn't be for the best. Most people I know with clear skin appear happy on the outside, but harbor other issues not visible on the surface. What those issues are I don't know because my issue vault is packed tight with worrying about acne. Would these issues possibly be worse? I kind of like be ultra independent, no have to deal with a lot of friends and family all the time.

Hmm, either choice is selfish when you think about it, so that's not really a variable.

I would have to say money. Money that would allow me to disappear into the bliss that is total isolation.

I'd choose the money. Hey, with all that money, and so many things to do with it, who the heck would have time to worry about bad skin?! eusa_dance.gif
