I guess living for 1000 years costs a hell of a lot more than $100 bucks eh?

Since I am crippled by anxiety? I'd pick:
No Anxiety for $25 
Fantastic Sex Life $25
Lifetime Political Power $50

I'd pick other ones if I was younger of course, but I'm OLD! :tears:

And I have the Beauty and Intelligence ones already, saved $125 right there :-)

A fantastic sex life with my lifelong best friend with no anxiety ever and a high level of athletic ability. The rest I can work for. :)

I'd go for lifelong financial stability and no anxiety ever.  

That may be because I define financial stability a bit differently.  To me that means my home(not a really nice home or anything, just a simple roof over my head, think efficiency apartment for single people) is paid for and there is food on the table and I have clothes to wear.  Basic needs met and no more. 

As a side note, this is really how I think welfare should work too.  Instead of giving poor people money/food stamps they can sell, we should have military barracks/college dorm style housing available.  No internet, cable or anything like that there.  Just a room, a shared bathroom down the hall and a cafeteria that provides 3 healthy meals that taste like crap a day.  If you want more than that, get a fucking job.

Financial stability, to me, does not mean I am rich and can afford every single thing I want, just that I have my basic needs met for the rest of my life.  If I want any more than the basic needs met, I'll have to work for it.  

Not having any more anxiety means I'll be able to kick ass at interviews and get a decent job to have all the extras in life.

It's all just a setup haven't any of you seen Bedazzled?.
Amazing artistic skill?  Look at how many die in poverty.
Extreme intelligence?  Sure - the catch is you end up like Stephen Hawking.
Political power - sure, then you get impeached or assassinated.
Lifelong beauty and an inability to find true love and an unhealthy dose of narcissism.
An amazing marriage - until your partner dies unexpectedly.
A fantastic sex life - but no emotional partner or long term relationship.
A lifelong best friend - probably someone completely inappropriate like Charles Manson.
High level of athletic ability - probably an idiot who gets his finances ruined and then suffers an early career-ending injury.
Perfect health - while everyone you love around you dies or suffers.
A happy, loving family - see the Mansons again.
Lifelong financial stability - and an early death.  Alternatively one could argue that a vagrant is pretty financially stable.  I'd aim for secure personally.
No anxiety?  Anxiety keeps us on edge.  Otherwise your are just going to be a vegetable in the looney bin dosed up on tranquilisers.

Be happy with what you've got.  If you get a windfall, look to those around you and see what they need.  Take care of the people around you and you'll be the richest man/woman on the planet.

I'd still have $100 bucks when walked out of the store.

I've already got the things on this list that I need:

1 nope, but its good enough
2 already got it
3 already got it
4 nope, but its good enough
5 nope, and its good enough
6 already worked and got what we need.
7 nope, its not good enough, but I've got time to practice
8 nope, but its good enough
9 nope, but its good enough
10 NOPE, but its good enough
11 nope, and don't fucking want political power.  I couldn't trust myself with it, and I'd hate to turn into the kind of person I despise (professional politicians).
12 already got it.

Thinking outside the box: 
I'm putting the money in the bank.
I'll buy the items that can be resold for maximum profit. 
An amazing marriage for me, and lifelong beauty for my wife. 
If I picked Extreme intelligence, I'd immediately regret not picking lifetime of political power. Unless "lifetime" implies your lifetime and you could soon get assassinated.

Perfect health for me, because it will cover both mental and physical health.

On second thought, I think I’ll take 4 helpings of Fantastic Sex for $25 a pop (no pun intended).

That would have to be like one constant, continuous mind-boggling orgasm.

I guess i would have $100.  a lot of this stuff isn't difficult, some is a bit vain, and the remainder seem more about the journey and effort than the final result (suddenly getting it would feel empty).

I’m buying perfect heath for $100. Based on my open enrollment options, that is the fucking bargain of the century.

Next year I may have to go to Home Depot and get the Mikita Home Amputation kit.  It’s an 18V sawzall with spare blades and a roll of gauze:)

Speculate in crypto and then tell everyone to fuck off while you drive away in your Vanquish.

Gerry1of1 It's basically a comment about how fucked up everything is.  Where if one person could spend $100 for self-improvement would they do that or would they speculate on something arbitrary like cryptocurriency (Bitcoin, Ethereum) to make quick money and say fuck you to anything but material goods.

"Extreme intelligence" and "Fantastic sex life" -- extreme intelligence gets me everything else on the list.

Wait, does the sex include anal?

fancylad disagree with intelligence getting you everything else.  Studies show Alzheimer’s is more prevalent in highly intelligent people - a cruel disease.

You can’t outsmart cancer.
