Who would ever want to live forever? I'll take the money every day of the week.

I'd much rather a long modest life than a short wealthy one. But forever...?

Sitting alone on an extinct Earth for several thousand years, waiting for the sun to swallow me up, and then somehow not kill me. Good times.

I'll take the cash.

Money. Why? Just imagine seeing all the people you love DIE. 'All of them'. In fact you are the only one who lives forever and shit that will always hurt digging graves for others plus you just can't put off your own misery by shooting yourself to death. If you do that you'll be deformed forever. Do you want to grow old each day? I'm telling you forever is a very long time and in the end you will look like a bag of skin. No sir i'd rather die rich young and pretty.

I'd rather be wealthy. Money is money. And wouldn't you get tired of living forever?

I'd take the money, do something good with it, and live comfortably and happy. Forever is a long time to live. Now, forever at the age of say 25......... It's a harder question now.

That is a tough one......maybe live forever because if I lived forever I would have all the time in the world to make all the money I could dream of..also I am assuming I would have super powers so I could do just about anything....

I grew up in a wealthy family, and it's no guarantee of happiness. I doubt immortality would be either. You can only make your own happiness with whatever you've got in life. And I've been pretty blessed already.

Hmmm... Live forever: even if you just invested money modestly, in a few decades you could be wealthy, in a century or two, rich as stinking shit! But you might not be very happy watching everyone you care about pass over and over again.

The best wealth is in the people you love, the way you live your life and the positive way you improve the world around you. I'll take giving that my best shot.

Live forever? No way, I wouldn't want to see or learn about family members passing away, watch the suffering in the world, friends dying....there comes a time for all of us to meet our fate, so I'll take the loot and enjoy it as long as I can.

Wealthy...what's the point in living forever?

"Find me the sweetest boy, with a heart
more hopeful than spun sugar on a hot day,
I will teach him the meaning of meaningless
nights. The whole time, every moment, wishing
he’d crack me open, rib by rib, to see
how I work. How I bleed.”

The key term is "very" wealthy... I'm happy to be just averagely wealthy and live forever :P

Others have mentioned the constant pain and suffering of losing loved ones, but I would take my endless years as an opportunity to learn and help others.
Money has little value to me, knowledge and ability rank far higher.
Who knows, I may just invent something to increase the life span of folk so that others don't have to make this tough choice!

I have lived with money and lived without it. (Lost a business and a lifestyle in the recession). I can say without reservation that I miss the money more than I miss my youth. So I guess I wouldn't want to live forever.

I'd rather be wealthy, my grandfather lived well into his 90's and he was miserable the last decade. He was sad all his friends had passed and he didn't have the ability anymore to travel and experience like like he did in his younger days. He too was very wealthy, so I would wish to mimic his life. He was an incredible man.

Neither.

Have always been much more interested in people than money. And the women in my family tend to be virtually indestructible and live to a great age anyway!!

I'll take wealth over eternal life any day

I'd rather have a lot of money and live my life to the fullest than live forever and witness the death of every person that's special to me
