Want to go into space?

NASA was interviewing professionals to be sent to Mars. Only one could go and couldn t return to Earth.The first applicant, an engineer, was asked how much he wanted to be paid for going. “A 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 $2 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?” asked the interviewer.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 to Mars.”
