36M for 7 years is still a helluva deal

That's $14k per day. I would certainly spend a considerable amount of time in jail for $14k per day, but not 7 years. At that point you're just missing out on too many life experiences that you can never get back. No amount of money can buy your 30s back.

Yes but you get to have 7 years of new experiences you would have missed out on if not in jail.

Indeed, I'm just stating my personal preference. It could very well be worth it to some people depending on their other options and what they want out of life.
