Default Would you rather die, or spend the rest of your life in maximum prison?

I'd rather rest with the worms. What is the point of living life, when you're not really living it? I would hate to wake up every morning, only to see metal bars.


Which option would you take?

Seeing as you could probably spoil something as great as skydiving or going to an awesoem house party with your retarded, boring, whining, b!tching personality; I'm sure you've never lived life. There's too much trash floating upstairs in your undeveloped head for you to really live in the moment.

I, being oh so awesome, would make the best of both.

actually, the life you have now (free) only makes jail look like a very low life. but once you get use to jail life, there can be things that can be exciting to live for even thougth your in a jail cell for 23 hours a day.

1 hour of free time is exciting.

I see your point.

I agree, if not for those reasons, but I don't think I could bear knowing that I was just about to die when I was to be executed.

Wouldn't feel too bad serving life in a Greenland prison. prisoners are "served breakfast buffets, allowed to go on snowy hikes, and given permission to handle firearms. They can also leave the premises during the day to go to work or school."

Making proclamations about end of life decisions are easy... as long as they're hypothetical or pertaining to someone else.

Having been in a situation where my demise seemed imminent, I can tell you that a lot of dispassionate thought goes right out the window in the interest of self preservation.

When it comes down to nut cuttin' time, there's a whole different perspective.

it's a deal, if I get a tablet along with 24 hours wifi. Tv shows, NBA league pass, games, skype, ebooks, comics, youtube. Definitely a much better deal than death.

You say that now you have something to lose. Once you have nothing, even the dreary and dangerous life of prison will be something.

What if you're delusional and have been raised on believing there is an AFterlife and it's a freedom that lifts you from all the burdens of physical Earth life and that every day and night you meditate 20 minutes a day on how you will die and imagine being torn apart and accepting that and choosing death?
