    lol It's great that I inspired you to make this poll ;) I think i would choose money because we don't stay young forever. I'd rather have the money to help my family and do everything I always dreamed of and just live the life.

        Good point! That's my sentiment also. This is why I voted for Lived enough, show me the money.

            Such spirits are no good, either fallen angels or some sort of evil spirits, I would have nothing to do with them. They are trickstiers they trick you. Same goes for so called spirits of the dead that some people talk to, fallen angels that is who they are, as the dead can't talk to you, neither from hell nor from heaven, only angels can talk to you, fallen ones or the ones from heaven.

              When did the choices get so hard?
              With so much more at stake.

              I'm surprised so many people are choosing money over youth. One question from me would be "could I keep the knowledge and wisdom I've gained in my life?" When I look back, I often quote Seger from "Against The Wind" when he says "Wish I didn’t know now what I didn’t know then" 

              I think it's great that people with families want to have money to help them, but I'd like to go back and undo all the stupid mistakes I made, although I'm sure I'd probably make many of them all over again, but I'd plan better. I'd go back to the 80s, buy land in Florida,  invest in tech stocks (get out in 2000) and then I wouldn't need any money now! I know I'm over-analyzing this, but health wasn't mentioned, so I'm going to assume the choice would be young & healthy.  As badly as I need money today, if that genie appeared in front of me now, I think I'd still choose youth. Both money and youth give you choices, but I'd choose youth because it would give me more time and you can't put a price on time.

                  Nice area. Very peaceful, although I don't often travel on Old 41. Sometimes I take it to the library if 41 is jammed.  I sent you an email when I joined in Nov because we had posts on many of the same threads, but you never responded.  FYI: I live on the west side of 41 off of the beach road in that old area behind 7-11 near the beach around Imperial River Shores, Tarpon, Esplanade.

                    Right now, my vote is for money because I hope to win a jackpot one day.

                            I've had youth, and seen people with money.  I'd like to emulate those with money more then I want to go throw the pitfalls of youth.  Money can't buy youth, but it can make old age a lot more appealing. A choice between being broke and able to ride a bicycle through France, or rich and able to ride in a limo through France? Give me the money for the limi every time! A choice between being broke and having cancer or being rich and having cancer, show me the money!

                            Cheers
