NASA was interviewing professionals they were thinking of sending to

The touchy part was that only one guy could go and it would be a
one-way trip, the guy not ever returning to Earth.

The interviewer asked the first applicant, an engineer, how much he wanted to be paid
for going. "One million dollars," the engineer answered. "And I want
to donate it all to my alma mater--Florida University."

The next
applicant was a doctor, and the interviewer asked him the same
question. "Two millions dollars," the doctor said. "I want to give a
million to my family and leave the other million for the advancement
of medical research."

The last applicant was a lawyer. When asked how
much money he wanted, he whispered in the interviewer's ear, "Three
million dollars." "Why so much more than the others?" the interviewer
asked. The lawyer replied, "You give me three million, I'll give you
one million, I'll keep a million, and we'll send the engineer!"
