Would you rather live 50 years as a ridiculous wealthy Billionaire, or 500 years permanently poor?

I think the more appropriate question would be 'sad but rich' and 'happy but poor'. In that case, I'd still pick the 50 year billionaire. :P 500 years in poverty? Oh my gawd. I don't think I can even stand 100 years. O_O hihihihih.

I think this is a trick question. When do we beome ridiculously wealthy? I mean I don't want to live for just 50 years, and if I had money I could afford things such as life and health insurance. Being poor, I would be cold, hungry, and more than likely sick. If I could get my wealth by the age of 50 and then live the next fifty years happy, then I would choose 50 years as a ridiculously wealthy Billionaire and then I would be able to help those less fortunate than myself.

Ohmigosh. 500 years in poverty? Yikes. No thanks. I don't think I would want to live for 500 years... Thanks but no thanks. I'd take the 50 years of being a ridiculously wealthy billionaire, and not because I'm greedy - but because I just wouldn't want to live for 500 years (unless my friends & loved ones could live for that long too!)
