Would you rip the wings off a living butterfly for a million dollars? It is one of my favorite questions and one I think about on occasions. My answer has always been "yes" but the more I think about it... the more I realize the answer should be "no!" The real question is about about our conscience... you know the little thing that tells us if something is right or wrong. If you would rip the wings off a living thing... just for fun... then this questions doesn't make much sense but if under normal circumstance you would never think of harming a butterfly then doing so for money illustrates how flimsy your conscience is. So yes, the answer should be "no" but it is still "yes".
