What value if any, can you place on a year of your life. If someone could magically do it, Would you be willing to take a year off your life in exchange for 2 million dollars now?

Let me ask this: how would that year be taken? by stop doing what I am doing? by dying? what? Right now, I have a parttime job; I am not into much as we speak; Two Million would be great because right now I'm not into anything; Funny you mention this: someone on the bus today said well if it's between Five million or your mother, which would you take? Someone said well, Id have to have some conditions first.

LOL... Let's say the year would be taken off the end of your life so if you were to live until you're 70yrs old, then you'd only live to be 69yrs old. The gamble ofcours for anyone would be that no one knows how much longer they have to live. If you only had a year left, you'd get the 2mil and die. Uh Oh.

I would NOT trade a year of my life for money. The last year of my life has been filled with many experiences that have helped me grow as a person. I wouldn't want to lose that!

Wow!!! Rosey, you're the first person to say that a year of life is worth more than money. You're making the rest of us look pretty shallow. LOL :-) Thanks for your comment.

Well, I'm 23 years old, and in the past year I've learned a lot. I've had a relationship, I've lost my job, and I've been in school. Maybe if I was like 60 years old, MAYBE I would trade in a year. I suppose it depends on what has happened to me.

I would mind. Even 2 million dollars can't repay what I'll go through for one year. All the experience and memory is not to be bought by money. I prefer to go through it. But I am one someone who in debt or terrible financial crisis, so I can talk. If I am someone like that, I may agree to trade my life, even ten years for two million so I can clear the debt.
