Scenario - what would you do?

Whilst down the pub last night we came up with a hypothetical scenario and it raised some interested debate so I thought I would give everyone a crack. Scenario is this.

You are 25. You get offered by some devil/genie type thing 2 options for your life. You can either get infinite wealth, a guarantee that you will never fall unwell and do whatever you want, BUT you die in your sleep on your 50th birthday. As you die everything you had goes and can't be left behind. OR

You go through life having just about enough to scrape by, never wealthy but never on the street just average living and the same guarentee about never getting unwell and you subsequently die in your sleep on your 80th birthday.

What would you do?? 25 years of doing whatever you please enough or are you more of a long game person. What we found was that men under the age of 25 now went for money and older men/women chose life. For the record I chose money!!!

this earlier on sat morning?? I'll give it a go. Money would be nice but is it not the most important thing in life. Seeing your kids smile and laughing and having fun as a family/friends is very important. and I think gives you a better feeling about about life than counting money.( We all need a balance of life fun and money). So i would choose 80th birthday.and yes I am over 25. brain ache now need another tea :D

at the age of 25 I too would have chosen the money but at the age I am now ( over 25 :) ) average living and making it till I am 80 will do me just fine.

I think that's a good discussion, at 25 I would have choosen the money, but alas im 26 http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ICenn8aqtuL28M:http://www.rletc.com/forum/images/smilies/extras/smiley20whistling.gif&t=1 but the more mature in life you get your outlook on life changes, when you were younger things that you thought were important are no longer, Its called maturity, as a few posters in this forum will hopefully find out one day! Having kids certainly throws a whole new meaning to life !

but there again if you didnt spend friday nights down the pub but on some self improvement plan you might actually achieve both.....
#11
What nights should I spend down the pub?!! Also it's a hypothetical scenario game which has no relevance on anyones current standing. Just a bit of fun which started a good debate

Im 21, and i'd take the money in a heartbeat.

Here's another one for you - How much money would you take to have your little finger surgically removed ?

I think this should be in the for sale/trade section, you paying by PayPal or cheque, & do you want the left one or right one ? have you got to wait 7 days now to list this ?

I don't want to live to 80 so would choose the former, although I would just have 14 years left.

Id pick money and im 25 :)
