    Hello,

    Let's say, you are in the hospital and you know you're going to die in 2 days.

    And the messenger of death stands beside you and offer you a deal.

    He says $1 million for 1 day time, and you can purchase as much as you want.

    And let's say you have $5 billion in your bank account.

    What will you do ?

    Give the $5 billion away to people who need it, and accept my fate.

    Do I still have to lay in the hospital bed the whole time in agony?
    Do I have all of my affairs in order?
    Do I have family members asking me to take the deal?
    Is it a trick questions and I still die in 2 days with less money?
    Does he come back each day to sell more or is it a 1 time transaction?

    Too many variables to make an informed decision, sorry.

    You gotta redo this scenario, I don't think people fully appreciate how large $5 Thousand-Million (5 billion) really is.

    A year is only $365 million. You have over 13.5 years to live, and by then you'll be able to easy make enough to live forever.

    With wise investing, you can live forever and help people out, so...Yeah, I'll take the deal as it's practically immortality

    No, you will be perfectly normal after you pay the money and you can do anything in your life.But after 1 day, you will die if you pay for just 1 day.

    No need, you can buy it everytime your times runs out, you can buy as many times you want, the life line will be in your atm machine and you can pay when ever you want, you can even check how many days left in your life.

    MY MIND WAS JUST BLOWN.

    I'm going to hug my pets now.

    OP sneaking in a life lesson about our true value and how much life really means to us even if things are currently going down...Word.

    Its all relative to the amount of money someone has. If I had 5 Billion, I would probably buy enough to live 2-3 more years, and use the rest to make sure my family/friends were taken care of, and share some around to charities, and make sure I was able to get myself in the position to be "ready to die". If I only had 1 million, I would go down with a smile on my face knowing that my family would have an easier life with my 1 million cash in hand.

    I don't want to turn this topic morbid, but I am sure many people here would give up their lives for 1-10million being given to their families.

    I would buy up all the days I could and then go step in front of a bus to see what would happen.
