(J) Nasa's employees

NASA was interviewing professionals to be sent to Mars. Only one could
go, but with one catch - he couldn't return to Earth.

The first applicant, an engineer, was asked how much he wanted to be
paid for going. "One million dollars," he answered, "because I want to
donate it to M.I.T."

The next applicant, a doctor, was asked the same question. He asked for
two million. "I want to give a million to my family," he
explained, "and leave the other million for the advancement of medical
research." The last applicant was a lawyer. When asked how much money
he wanted, he whispered in the interviewer's ear, "Three million dollars."

"Why so much more than the others?" the interviewer asked.

The lawyer replied, "If you give me $3 million, I'll give you $1
million, I'll keep $1 million, and we'll send the engineer."
