NASA was interviewing professionals they were thinking of sending toMars. The touchy part was that only one guy could go and it would be aone-way trip, the guy not ever returning to Earth. The interviewer asked the first applicant, an engineer, how much he wanted to be paidfor going. "One million dollars," the engineer answered. "And I wantto donate it all to my alma mater--Florida University." The nextapplicant was a doctor, and the interviewer asked him the samequestion. "Two millions dollars," the doctor said. "I want to give amillion to my family and leave the other million for the advancementof medical research." The last applicant was a lawyer. When asked howmuch money he wanted, he whispered in the interviewer's ear, "Threemillion dollars." "Why so much more than the others?" the interviewerasked. The lawyer replied, "You give me three million, I'll give youone million, I'll keep a million, and we'll send the engineer!"
