    I would choose the red pill, with $50, I can at least be able to give my family a better life, if something happened to me, there would still be some money for them to survive. My 20's were good times but as we get older, our responsibilities changes. While I would get to relive those years again, the outcome may not always be the same or would it make me feel happier.

    I think the problem with the blue-red pill question lies with the $50 mil. I will take the blue bill if the $50 mil is changed to say $2 mil.

    I think with the blue pill, even though you will be young again, the age of your friends and family have not change. Although you retain your knowledge, you may not fit in with your current classmates if you are put in school again since you will 10. Also, what will you change in your life and will you be able to change it?

    Very tough decisions...

    I guess at 2million, it really depends what your current financial situation is.

    Alternatively, what's if the age is changed to 60 but you have 40 more years to live?

    Am I assuming that only the person who takes the pill will age? Because we have to factor in that the spouse may not be happy that you have aged so much and then will go and have an affair.

    Good question. To be fair, I think we can assume that the person will age from 20-25 years old to 60 with $50 million in his/her bank account.

    With thinking back and forth between which pill to choose, it seems like we should be happy with the way things are now. Charbydis is right, with only you aging and not the spouse, they probably won't be happy and would have an affair. On the other hand while you are young again, the friends that you know and have been through a lot will not be young again. Makes me think, would the best choice be to not take either pill?




    Happy New year everyone!!! Been very sick... looks like the flu is hitting a lot of people... stay healthy and warm everyone.

    Thanks, you take care too. A fall is very painful.

    Nan Ling, I've been quite busy with work since my coworker is on Maternity leave. My work has doubled!
    Baby shower! Fun... I haven't had one of those for awhile.
