The Cliff Clavin Experiment

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ryan Jones @ 12:00 am

Anybody remember that episode of Cheers where Cliff meets his long lost dad? I watched it last night, and I want to run a hypothetical by the readers of this blog. Sort of a, what would you do in this situation. I thought about it last night before falling asleep, and I wasn’t sure what I’d do. Everybody Comment. It’s no fun if you don’t.

I’m gonna change it a bit though.. here goes

Imagine your father, who you haven’t seen in a long time, suddenly comes back into your life. You spend time together and have a great time. You end up wishing you’d have known your dad better and long to spend more time with him.

Now, your dad tells you he’s leaving the country tomorrow and he’s never coming back. You learn that he’s made millions through illegal means, and he’s leaving to avoid prosecution.

He’s invited you to come with him. You’ll be rich, be able to afford anything you want to buy, AND be able to live with your dad. Let’s assume you don’t have a wife or kids or anything yet to tie you down.

What would you do? Would you go live in paradise never having to work again? Would the way his money was acquired bother you? Would you turn your father in to the police before he left? How would you handle this situation?
