71% of people in a British study were 'willing to trade their office computer password for a candy bar'

It says so right here (down at the bottom).

Seems fair: I mean, if "a penny for your thoughts" is the going rate, a Snickers for a password seems almost too generous.

Comments

I don't know about trading my computer password, but when I'm presented with an extra-large crispety-crunchety Butterfinger, I always flop down on my bed, roll around a few times, purr, try to yank it out of the presenter's hand before they let go of it, scratch my ear with my foot, lick my nose with my tongue a few times, play tug-of war with the candy bar, and stare with wildly dilated pupils into the eyes of whoever's around.

Well, doesn't everybody?
