    Wonder can a 100 million fix me?

    I was wondering if i came up with a 100 million can i be fixed. Im talking about using the best everything.

    100 million US dollars I assume? 100 million Zimbabwean dollars wont get you fixed

    Seriously though, it would depend on how you spend it. If spent wisely you could advance the field dramatically without a doubt. But give it to one of our esteemed SCI Organisations then you might find the sum disappears into the abyss.

    I have heard on the grapevine that there is a wealthy SCI who has personally paid a number of labs $$$$$$ to 'fix' him. Will it work? I dont know.

    One innovative way to spend $100m would be to create a $50m x-prize to cure paralysis and use $50m to fund several teams to compete and win the prize. Incentive-based science!

      We often talk of funding. Although the emphasis in disability funding appears to be care centered, we cannot pretend that a lot of money has not gone into research. Just how much goes into admin. executive posts, glossy hype, plush offices etc is always a something we all must ask ourselves. I've heard it commented time and again how luxurious some charity "fronts" are, and from experience I know that we offered a stack of coat hangers to one charity shop, only to be told that they were not quite stylish enough! What's that all about?

            you know if someone did find a cure. they would win the nobel prize be on time mag as the man of the year also they will become bill gates rich! this is why a lot of researchers don't share info with others as they claim.

              Simple Answer, 100 million won't fix you. Get on with life, spend it there.

              Why do you think the bigwigs want a cure. People with disability is who they make their money off of.

                Ummmm, I thought this was a Cure forum! What an ironic statement.

                  moneymaker744 - I guess the crux of my message was - we are not yet in a position to back a horse to the tune of $100m.

                  Hence why the x-prize is an innovative way of incentivising science, encouraging collaboration through competition and bringing more talented researchers into the field.

                  Or maybe a better answer would be to stick the money in the bank and fund science via the interest accrued.

                    As of this day, Patrick is 110% right. Money CAN help you stay in peak physical condition, get you the best proteins and supplements and stage you to be a great chronic test candidate when something comes along.

                    If you are hearing anything else, anywhere else, then at best it's anecdotal - worst, a twisted, corrupt sales pitch.
                    And the truth shall set you free.

                      Yeah, don't mean to be a downer, but there are some things money can't fix. So far SCI is one of them.

                      In the meantime as NDP says, maximize your potential in case one does come down the pike.

                      now that Chris Reeve is gone, do you think the corporate heads of the foundation really want a cure. If they have no vested interest in one, eg. sci themselves, why would they want to lose their big salaries and bonuses. It may sound cynical, but it seems any corp,foundation or otherwiase only think about the bottom dollar and benefits to themselves and the shareholders.

                        Sorry moneymaker - I thought you asked a theoretical question. My bad. There is no cure. Enjoy your $100m. Dont overdose on protein shakes.

                            To Patrick Madsen simple answer FUCK YOU DUDE. You dont kno shit. How do you kno? Exactly you dont kno so do me a favor and roll off the nearest biggest CLIFF YOU CAN FIND.
                            Some of yall are the most negitive, ppl i ever met.

                            But besides your sci/brain injury opinions i believe money talks..with all the syuff we got to work with..............i kinda find that hard to believe............

                              Question is would the cure come along a lot faster if lets say Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gate, Steve Jobs or one of them got injured. That would be interesting to see. I bet they would fix them in no time.
