I dont think I would even want to be famous. It would suck getting mobbed by people when you go out to public places and stuff.

Fame is a fašade... you never know who really has your best interest, you loose most of your privacy, and end up making an unequal amount of money in comparison to what fame makes you lose...


And if you do make decent dollas.. if you are not level headed, you will end up squandering the benefits, and end up making poor choices

80 years. I have an chance of being more famous than pistol pete. Unless you gave me the chance to live as one of the Big Three (Jesus/Mohammed/Buddha) or maybe someone on the Genghis/Napoleon tier I wouldn't consider it.

The obvious answer is 80. 40 is way too short of a life, and fame has many negatives to it.

I think inside of the quantity of age, you can build a quality of life, that will suit you well regardless of what other find attractive.

I don't think the OP necessarily just meant being famous period. Being famous at what you want to be famous at. Like if you loved basketball, become a basketball legend and die at 40. If you are into politics, live JFK's life.

Just the best quality life you would want, but die at age 40 instead of 80.


So if you are into money and riches, become the next Bill Gates but live up to 40 and so on.




Thats where quality vs. quantity comes in

In such a case, I would end up having a conflict of interest, because as one who would like to thrive as one who writes, prime time arrives at a later time in life, usually later than the year of 40

Keep the fame, give me the $. But still, the allure...

80 for sure. 40 years is nothing. Plus, "I don't give a f*ck about fame".
