How much would you pay to see your future?

"A Stanford bioengineer has become the first scientist in the world to decode his own DNA with a machine he invented, allowing him to peer into his genetic blueprint to see his risk for disease — and expanding the frontier of medicine... [His] machine, the size of a freezer, sequenced his human genome in only four weeks, for $50,000. The procedure is expected to cost $10,000 by the end of this year."

If you're able to scrounge together the resources, would you pay $10K and wait 4 weeks to map your complete genome?
