Well I'd be unborn with the red pill so that doesn't leave me many options
@RAM Card, same. Either wait 4 years to be born or be 26 with $20 million. This is a tough one, I tell you what
@RAM Card, same
@Deer Jesus, plus the blue pill gets you closer to the sweet relief of death
@RAM Card, red pill it is
@RAM Card, but they didn't specify if the whole world aged 5 years. So think about all you could miss. Especially if a family member passed away within the time. Yeah 20 Million is great but finding out a parent, sibling, or loved one died would be messed up.
@RAM Card, you could keep the red pill as a reset. Go through life and If you make wrong turns.. Use it and relive your life... Although your kinda stuck with a new problem. If you're 30 and want a reset. You're 5 years old. Does your mind go back 25 years. Because if you're under 18 like I said being 30-25=5 who would take care of you. You would hope that it ages the world 25 years younger. So you have insurance. Or just use it near your death... but who knows that stuff.
@RAM Card, id be 22 with $20 mil. Not bad. But this post was made for moms on fb so that explains the 25 years younger one
@Lord Palpatine, actually it does, "you wake up tommorow", so it just biologically ages you
@IdeasAreHard, ahh..... Still 5 years off your life. Really that's what it is. 5 years for 20 million dollars.
@IdeasAreHard, well if I went to sleep now. And woke up in 2003. Wouldn't it be technically tomorrow? Even though it's in the past?
@Lord Palpatine, honestly I'd take that, the amount you could do with 20mil would be well worth it assuming your job prospects are not going to net you much more then enough to get buy
@Lord Palpatine, no
@RAM Card, ditto...
@Deer Jesus, same here haha
@Deer Jesus, exactly the same
@Deer Jesus, hwat*
@Wakeley, why would you want death if you had 26 million dollars?
@Lord Palpatine, you could spend your time training to be the 2017-2020 president.
Blue. Everything in my life has made me who I am. If I have a complete redo, I wouldn't be me anymore.
@Maluhia Po, unless you still remembered it all. Then you'd be able to make experiences decisions as you went through life again and be more able to seize those opportunities.
@I Are Lebo, still, that would ultimately change who I am. Every decision I have ever made in my life has made me who I am. Every mistake, every bad decision, every scar. To change one single choice could have a drastic effect on my present day life.
@Maluhia Po, but nobody is talking about changing that. You don't go back in time, you just get younger. You get a do over on your life, but your life up until now still happened. You still remember it. You still had those character developing moments, you just get to build more on top of it.
@Maluhia Po, while I agree with you to some extent I know personally there are plenty of things I would like to go back and redo, from relationships (missing evident signals, peer pressure, just being afraid to talk to girls, etc.) to dealing with bullying, and beyond. My short 18 year old life is full of plenty of stupid regrets that in a heartbeat I would go back and do. Just in the last 2 years because I followed the crowd and listened to rumors about a girl that I had (and still have) the hugest crush on and clearly liked me too. I ended up pushing her away and every time I see her I feel guilty and just want to do it again. From simple regrets to life altering changes, there are so many things I wish I could go back and change. As long as I have the knowledge I do today so I can prevent them
@No Sjit, see even from that I see stupid wording mistakes that make me want to redo that comment
@Maluhia Po, my wife died about six months ago. We were together for about 22 years. I wouldn't need a complete redo, but I'd certainly take the time over the money. Besides, with 25 years of knowledge, even with giant gaps in knowledge of future events you'd know enough to invest money at certain points that 20 million ultimately would be chump change.
@Sarcastic Wombat, I'm sorry about your wife.
However, I maintain my position. Suppose I went back to redo my entire life, knowing what I know now. What about the people I've met? My friends? If I were to change any part of my life, I would likely lose my friends. My friends are more important to me than correcting past mistakes. Even without the money, I wouldn't change my past.
@Maluhia Po, it'd be less about the redo and more about the re-experience in my case. Whichever decision one would make likely depends on where they are in their life. Ten years ago my answer would be different. Now however, many of my friends are thousands of miles away or gone. The option to change your past doesn't mean the need to do so, reliving my life with some foreknowledge is appealing; I wouldn't make a whole lot of sweeping changes. It occurs to me, as silly as this sounds, that this was basically the choice that one of the men made it Hot Tub Time Machine.
@Maluhia Po, that's a pretty fair point. It doesn't apply to me, unfortunately. I've never had a friend be that close enough to me. I wouldn't take a bullet for anyone I know except for my brother.
The missed opportunities would be a far greater thing to have than money. Especially since many of those opportunities would have been very profitable for me.
@I Are Lebo, that's a fair point as well. Everyone has different experiences that makes them unique. I enjoy hearing other views on subjects like this, because everyone is just so different.
@Maluhia Po, absoloutely. The whole point of imaging and sharing hypothetical situations is to get new and interesting points of view.
A would-you-rather question that has a definite right and wrong answer is a crappy question.
@I Are Lebo, *imagining, not imaging.
@I Are Lebo, I totally agree!
I would take the red pill, then 25 years later I would take the blue pill.
Would my kids be 5 years older? I wouldn't take any amount of money to lose 5 years of time with my kids. It is already going too fast.
Well... I'd likely waste my life again if I started 25 years ago... unless I had the knowledge I had now. And it WAS 25 years ago. I'd just plunge all my expendable income into Apple.
I'll take the small loan of 20 million dollars
@Bigmatter, This is by far one of tbe most creative comments ive ever seen.
@0ff brand burrito, I know right
@Bigmatter, IM AN IDIOT!!
@Bigmatter, I dont get it can you explain
@Laquadatarf, YOU'RE AN IDIOT!!
BLUE! I don't think four or five years will make America great again.
Blue pill without a second thought. I could f*cking retire at 32, I'd waste 5 years of my life for that. All the stresses of having a job and worrying about money and savings gone
@Jolee Bindo, this is exactly my thought. Retired in my early thirties, able to help my family ( not just me and my husband, but my extended family too) and getting to on adventures!
Investment opportunities 25 years ago would make more than 20 mil.
Look up winning lottery numbers and then take the red pill and make sure to place them when you reach the right date
Red pill. Buy stock in apple. Make 20 mill. Chill.
With the red option, do I get to keep all my knowledge and wisdom?
So I either become a rich 24 year old or basically cease to exist. Ha that's a real brainer.
*takes red pill*
Aren't those pills the container for those expandable Dino things when exposed to water?
@Taquito Speedo, the mad clown offering the "candy" shushes you
*Takes red pill* *loses the sperm race* *Dies forever*
Red pill, stock market, meet wife sooner, retired at 25 lol.
I'd take the 20 because you could work 5 years at a normal hourly rate and not have that amount of Monet (15$ an hour times 43800 hours in five years equals 657000$) therefore saving a bunch of wasted time
Either you care about you're past or you think 20 mill is enough to forget mistakes
Well as 16 year old this work out terrific for me
Blue cuz I'm 11 lol jk I'm 17
Blue boys. I wouldn't want the loss of family or pets, though. I'd do the red if it meant having to lose them. If I could wake up tomorrow and be 23 and have everything be the same (except the 20mil) I'd do that 100%. Plus I don't want to do 13yrs of school again, not including university....
Red pill, hands down. I'm 31 so I would only be 6 years old but it would give me enough time to fix the wrongs I have done in my life and make them right. And I've lost a lot of my family members due to unforeseen accidents sickness and cancer... to have those moments back, whether or not preventable, I would give anything.
I'm fifteen, so I'll take blue.
I would be 19 and 20 million dollars richer so here we go red pill
Sooo 25 and 20 mill? I'll take it!
red pill!!!! straight to the bookies!!! put my life savings on Leicester winning the premier league....brexit happening and trump becoming president......as a treble.....3million to one....ya can shove yer 5 years and 20 mill up yer hole 😂😂😂
Have my 21st birthday in a few weeks with 20 million to spend or wait 5 years to be born. Tough one
Blue pill, he|l yeah! I'd be 21, so I could drink, plus I'd be a multimillionaire!
Why would you choose the red pill?
Red pill all the way.
Hmm the choice for be is to become unborn ooor be able to drink legally with 25 million decisions decisions.
I'm 20. Being 25 would be cool. Blue pill.
Well if I take the blue one, my contract in the AF would be over and I'd have a ton of money. Sounds good to me
Yea im 20 so its kind of obvious i need that 20 mil for college
Considering I'm only 20, BLUE PILL
There is no question the blue. 5yrs is nothing with 20mill. What's being young gunna do I'll still be poor and end up probably where I am today working just to live barely.
So kill my self couse im unborn or have money for life and be allitle older
Sweet, sweet nonexistence, or something that'll make life living. Hm.
Blue pill, I'd be old enough to drink and I'd be 20 million richer
i don't want to be a sperm again
Millenials: woke up next day, disappears
Hmm do I want to be 14 again? Or loose 5 years of my life for money, no you keep your pills thank you
I would take the redo. Be 25 years younger would allow me the chance to do more. As you hit that point in life when your metabolism slows down. You find it's hard to suddenly take up an active life style. How quickly my body put on muscle and repaired itself from aches and pains when I was 10 compared to now is incredibly different. Hell even 10 or 15 years ago I could'be exercised and lost weight and gained muscle much faster than I do now. Those of you who are in, near, or over your mid 30's know what I'm talking about. Those of you who are still very young. We laugh knowing all the while you'll have to deal with what we do soon enough. Once you leave high school. Life kicks into high gear and the years disappear.
Well, im 21 so the red pill would kill me...
Don't want either?
So 23 years old with 20 million dollars? , I'll take it
Blue. Because I am 12. So easy
I cant take the res one because i wasnt born 25 years ago
Blue pill. I'd be 26 and living it up, saying goodbye to my student loans and be opening the restaurant of my dreams!
If I take the red pill and end up 4 years old, do I get to remember this whole life or is it a complete do over, and I start with no memory?
Either way, I can't exactly see my parents being happy and willing to raise me all over again.
