I sold myself for 20 years to earn my first million, 1 year at the end of my life for 1 million upfront seems like a much better deal.

I vote yes just because I could use the money to become richer easily and then use that money to invest in science to help create stuff to make me live probably more than just one year longer

No way. First, time is worth more than money - and that isn't even all that much money. Second, I might already be in the one year window and not even have the few hours left it would take to spend and enjoy the cash.

Hell yes. Why wouldn't I want to drastically improve my life in my physical prime in exchange for a year of what will most likely be pain and illness?

I calculated that if I work every hour 24/7 for the entire year my gross income would be about 718,000. Obviously sleep and the need for food and other things would detract from this so I would gladly give up a year to have 1 million.

If I were 20 (I'm not, that birthday is long lost in the mists of the Paleozoic) the answer may well be yes.
It might might well result in a longer life: Stress is a huge life-shorter. $1 million, used wisely, might go far to reduce stress enough to gain me back that year, plus some.

Statistically, my husband is likely to die quite a few years before me and life without him won't hold nearly as much value for me. So, I'd go for it to make our lives much easier and hopefully to gain him a few more years since he wouldn't have to work and be stressed so much.

The last year of my life most likely won't be that great. Meanwhile a million dollars will save me a lot of time and stress. I'll probably get more than a year of my life back from the time I would've been working. So yes.

I would leave it for my grandchildren in trust. I might've died several months ago. Because we do not know the number of our days. Actually I'm gonna change my vote. I just thought of my granddaughter. I think she rather have more time with me than have her college paid for. I think she'd be very upset if I gave up my life so she could have more things. She has had some anxiety about me eventually dying .

Can I do 5!?!? I would just do 5 years for 5 millie n actually enjoy the rest of my life. Every second of it being unburdened by any sort of financial stress or need to work.

No thanks. I hate all that pocket change. In all seriousness the older I get the less value money has and the higher value time has. With that kind of money I could retire much earlier but I'm still not sure this is a deal I would take.
