From the hip: I would be tempted, but would not just for self-respect.
Thinking about it: This bypasses the spirit of the question, but I'd grab a paper towel, fold it up, grab the money, take it right to the sink, wash it off, and go. No piss touched, and 15 bucks buys me one and a half orders of Five Guys.
I'm sure I'm not the only one to have been inspired by fictional characters, not just as a writer, but as a person in general. Who are some of your fictitious inspirations?
Happy, healthy, handsome, fit, middle class fathers with stable jobs, loving wives, strife-free homes, and respectful, obedient, self-motivated, helpful children.

I remember reading that, and wanting to find a massive old tree and use a fire to hollow-out it's trunk to build a home.

Although fairly enough, one might argue the people in present-day Sumer are a few centuries behind in terms of political, religious, and gender liberties.

I lost my life savings in the dot-com crash a decade ago. If I sold near (not even at) the top, then bought near (not even at) the bottom, then sold again at any one of several points in the past decade, I'd have several million dollars. But alas, I'll now work until I'm 70+, if my health permits and my skills remain relevant. Hey, I may not have a sure path to retirement, but at least I still have my NHL Hockey!! internet hockey message boards!!

PM sent with address to which you can send more of those $1 you won't miss.

Polish mint. (heard that along time ago; no longer politically correct)
Re: pics above - I guess that's what pissing your money away is...
I had a 5-minute presentation yesterday to the CEO of my company, a couple VPs, and another member of the Board of Directors (retired CEO of another company). It went well. Thankfully, I still remember how to tie a necktie.
