...without talking for a million dollars?
You would be monitored in a room/ house; day and night such as in Big Brother.

Could you ? Would you? How long would you last?

Money isn't worth my sanity, so no.

For sure. I would just speak to you telepathically. :pi:

I literally cant go about ten minutes without singing to myself.

TRULuverzz
21-02-12, 17:29
I wouldn't give up talking for all the luxuries in the world, so NO!

I'd try, but fail veeeery badly :o

i'm sure i'd go nuts, and i sometimes talk to myself, loud or silent, so no :vlol:

I live a life of a loner as it is, I often go several days without physically speaking a word to anyone. I'd certainly give it a go, no idea how long I'd last. Would I be allowed to occupy my mind with things to do, or would I just be sitting there and staring at the wall? If I'm allowed to do things then I'd say my chances of doing it would be higher.

Mikky
21-02-12, 17:30
Sure. I practically do it all the time, anyway; I talk to people online. :D

Ha, same here!

21-02-12, 17:31
Yes.
Talking is so overrated.

21-02-12, 17:32
Ha, same here!

It gets really bad sometimes :pi: haha

klona
21-02-12, 17:35
If I had a laptop with internet 24/7, I'd do 10 years. :p

Yes.
Talking is so overrated.
I agree, it is too mainstream! :rolleyes:

TRULuverzz
21-02-12, 17:36

Yeah but you don't seem so quiet when we're talking on Skype :pi:

This.

Would depend what other things would I be allowed to do. And only if there wouldn't be anyone constantly babbling in your presence. :pi:

Mikky
21-02-12, 17:38
Yeah but you don't seem so quiet when we're talking on Skype :pi:

Then I guess I'd have to give up Skype for a while. :pi: :p

patriots88888
21-02-12, 17:41
I imagine stubbing my toe or hitting my hand with a hammer would present some problems. Shouting out those obscenities always eases the pain... well, not actually, but it is the normal reaction to such occurences.

TRULuverzz
21-02-12, 17:41

NO! D:
Who else will I talk to :/

Mikky

Fine, we could go on Skype, but I'd reply only using the text box. :p :hug:

make it three. XD i suck at it though, good thing nobody can hear me.

21-02-12, 17:54
I'm pretty quiet, so I think I could do it :p

Cali
21-02-12, 17:55
No don't think I would...and I don't think I could anyway xD

Hell no o.0

I am very loud and like talking very much.

Sir Croft
21-02-12, 17:59
I could make more profit being able to talk. :p

patriots88888
21-02-12, 18:00
I'm wondering what the OP's answer might be.:pi: I think I already know. :p

Nah^ you wouldn't caught you off guard too :whi:

patriots88888

^ Say what? :/

RAID
21-02-12, 18:07
Not in a million years. I talk even to myself, and when I am not talking to myself, I'm singing.

There is no quiet moment if you're around me.

Rai
21-02-12, 18:09
So, I'm stuck in a house on my own? Even presuming I'd be given tons to do, after a while I'd cave and start singing or mumbling to myself. I may manage a few days, but that's the limit.

knightgames
21-02-12, 18:10
I can see it now. Day 364.5 and I'm playing Tomb Raider to pass the time. I feel like a challenge so I do a speed run without any saves. I've killed the big mutant and am making my escape. After killing Natla I climb up to the very top of the pyramid stones to the exit. On the last outcropping I fall to my death. I know it, and I can't avoid it.

"FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuudge!"


I also have a habit of doing this stupid thing when I flight sim. I occasionally fly the Focke Wolfe 190. It's a bad ass fighter plane from WW2 and it reminds me of something Darth Vadar would fly if he flew WW2 aircraft. Well, the stupid thing I do is when I swoop down on an unexpected foe I have a habit of saying in my best Darth Vadar voice, "I have you now" and blast the unknowing Luke Skywalker...... I mean WW2 fighter pilot from the sky. I've done it so often it's almost involuntary. It's past my lips before I know I've said it.

So while I MAY be able to consciously keep quiet for a year and a million bucks, I'm sure I'd find a way to ruin it.

TRfan23
21-02-12, 18:18
I'm a loner for most of the time of my life, if you exclude my family that I live with that is. The only times I'm with someone other than my family is when I'm at Uni, I used to go out with my main friends when I was in my last year at school (2009). But then we stopped and that was that... :/

Now I've become a lot more socially inept, that I even barely talk to people at Uni. But I think it's partly to do with the fact that I'm sleep deprived :p

So yeh I could give it a try, providing that by the end of the year I haven't lost the ability to speak :p

tampi
21-02-12, 18:24
I can not deprive to the world of my beautiful voice for a year, the doctor will not let me.

StefanJ94
21-02-12, 18:29
I could survive a year being in a house like Big Brother, monitored and stuff however, I can't go that long without speaking...heck I can't even be quiet for 10 minutes :o

tomekkobialka
21-02-12, 18:40
Probably...I don't know, it seems like an easy task for me but if I try I will probably go insane after a week. :p

King.Louie
21-02-12, 18:44
I would have to my mouth sewn shut xD I would just find it impossible to not talk for a year. What about all those people who talk in their sleep? :p

Cochrane
21-02-12, 18:57
As long as it is simply not verbally communicating with other human beings, why not? If I can still talk to myself, and can still talk to others (in text form, e.g. over the internet), I could definitely manage to do so.

Chocola teapot
21-02-12, 19:57
I would have a go. :p

21-02-12, 20:25

I was a select-mute for long enough, there's no way I'm going back to that.

Sgt BOMBULOUS
21-02-12, 20:34
It'd be kind of hard to do my job...

jackles
21-02-12, 20:36
I find it hard not to talk so there would be no way I could do that...and as for a BB style house not unless the loos didn't have cameras.

Alpharaider47
21-02-12, 21:13
I went roughly 2-3 years without speaking hardly at all, so I'm more than certain I could do it. Granted I did have a lot of text based communication and whatnot. But for a million dollars? One million dollars isn't what it used to be. Make it one million pounds and you might have a deal ;)

Giraffe3
21-02-12, 21:14
I couldn't, I talk about every 2 minutes at least!
But if someone would do that, it would probably physically hurt to talk because you haven't used that part of your body, and it is weak.
Is it even possible without getting your vocal cords removed?:confused:

larafan25
21-02-12, 21:14
I'd try it.

robm_2007
21-02-12, 22:41
Nope. I would at least try. I mean, I am always talking to myself, or yelling at the dumb bitch on tv to look behind her, so I would f-a-i-l big time.

Take it or leave it. Be lucky you ain't getting 1 million yen, cuz that's like 12 thousand USD.

EDIT: ...I totally thought that I was underexaggerating at how much 1 million yen would be in USD, and I was like 550 dollars off :P

I would so win if I was on The Price is Right :pi:

1 Year of not talking for 1 million -- Money isn't everything so no, I wouldn't.

Legend 4ever
21-02-12, 22:46
Even though I sing pretty much every day, I think I could try and pull it off. But not for a measly million, I could spend that in a year by living not much better than I do now. A hundred million sounds much better.

Paddy
21-02-12, 22:47
Nope.

Gracious Days
21-02-12, 22:53
I would give it a go, but not sure I'd make it. I'm not a huge talker but it takes a lot in me to resist correcting someone when they say something really off the mark, which is not a rare occcurance in my house; I could write it down but by then the conversation's probably moved on. :p A million is a nice incentive to try, though.

Shark_Blade
21-02-12, 23:07
I'm not sure I will be in the right state of mind after not talking for 1 year.

Heck even Tom Hanks had Wilson the basketball to talk to.

Think about that again, dear.

21-02-12, 23:09
I don't care about money, so hell no.

DgoOdz94
21-02-12, 23:10
I would try. I would most likely epic fail it, but something says I just might be able to.

Shark_Blade
21-02-12, 23:12

I was sure as hell the ball was basketball, the ball was orange in my mind. But I guess it's been a long time since I saw the movie. :p

I could go a year without talking, but constantly monitored? No thanks. :o

Absolutely not. Nu-uh.

I'm the most talkative ****er you'll ever know -- I wouldn't even last an hour! :vlol:

Yeah monitoring would drive me totally CRAZY! I think I could go a year without talking for money if I could write things down.. otherwise I'm not so sure..

Mmhmm
22-02-12, 18:37
lolno.

I'd like to try (it's a lot of money) but tbh as if you'd get me to shut up for even an hour!

Draco
22-02-12, 19:27
I could do it. I've already gone weeks straight without doing it.

22-02-12, 20:01
I wouldn't even dare. :rolleyes:

NRO.
22-02-12, 20:06
I wouldn't even dare. :rolleyes:

We couldn't live without your pwetty voice. <3

Anyway, if I could use Internet, hell yes I could. But I don't want to.
