    Fill out the poll and give all of the juicy details, please.

    I think I would pick eternal loyalty. I feel like I was born to be a leader but a lot of people are disrespectful and I have never been given leadership opportunities even when I ought to have been. I understand how people think very well so they wouldn't be sadly serving against their will or anything. I also know how to put people to good use. They wouldn't be slaves either, I wouldn't like forcing people to be under my control 24/7.

    People are not meant to be alone, and yet I have always been alone without support. If I were to go to the afterlife, I would probably serve as an eternal servant to someone instead. I do my best to help communities and civilizations thrive but they give me so very few chances. I would think being an ally to something so great would be an enviable position yet people avoid such things it would seem.

    As for the options left behind.... If I did have a super power, I would want teleportation or invisibility so that I could be with people I want to be with all of the time and we would never be forced to part ways or never get to meet. If I had immortality, I would become wise enough to do anything and I highly doubt I would get bored or depressed of it. With the money, I think it would be second choice since money is essentially social weight in material form. I wouldn't use money in a typical way - I would use it to strengthen and guide others.

    Immortality, because if I have infinite time I can get the other 3 things.

    Immortality as I can probably get the money from it, and I cant have eternal friends/slaves/lovers if I dont have eternal life anyway... Once I get to use my immortality to amass money, I will now also have a super power..

    Immortality...but only if it came with the caveat that I was capable of ending my own life in some way. Love the idea of the opportunity to experience multiple generations rise and fall but I have a feeling that seeing everyone you care about die multiple times while you remain the same would start to take it's toll on one's mental health. Also you never know maybe the 12 year global warming doomsayers are right and it'd really suck to be the only living thing on a dead planet in a perpetual state of suffocation but unable to actually die. so immortality without limits actually seems more scary to me than death overall.

    I don't want to live forever. I picked never running out of money, I would quit my job and open up a restaurant somewhere. I assume that means that I would always have enough money to buy food for the restaurant, pay the employees well, pay the mortgage on the property, etc.

    I picked super powers,
    I have a wish I'd like to grant someone, and powers would be cool.

    Money is available in my country easily if you work hard.

    Loyalty is something you earn, and I believe it doesn't exist in everyone. I like showing it more than counting on it.

    As far as eternal life, life is long if you're lucky. I'm not that old, and I already feel like it's long in a tiresome way.

    You gotta keep it interesting, and that's another reason I think super powers would be fantastic.

    Money please. It is not the be-all and end-all, but a lot of problems go away when you throw money at them. And when you have enough, you can help others as well.

    I'd have a superpower so I can rob banks for money. With that never ending supply of money, I would buy loyalties to serve my purposes, and I would live forever in infamy.

    Power over space and time, makes pretty much all the other options easy to get.

    Superpowers!

    I don't want to live forever, at once point I like to have the opportunity to take my hat. Imagine humanity goes to hell and you're the only one who sticks around because you just can't die...

    Also, I already have my eternally loyal minio......friends. They like to be called friends.

    And with Superpowers, I simply take all the money I want.

    A lot of people here said they'd take superpowers because they can get money with them (like steal a bank...). I seriously question the morality of this forum lol.

    I didn't say steal... I just take it from those who stole it and be the hero who takes a moderate 70% rescue fee.

    Of couse superpowers, immortality can backfire if you are stuck somewhere, eternal friends/lovers feels wrong and the money wish doesnt sound that useful to me.
    With superpowers I could found my own empire (unite the earth), get loyal servants who share my plans, amass money and if die I will left something to remember (which is some kind of immortality, too).
    Probably kick off a new vampire myth, since I would never leave my castle because I dont like people. xD

    Let me come back with an argument for immortality: with time you'll amass a huge fortune. Also, in many many years, science will be so developed that we will be able to have what today we call superpowers. With all your fortune, you'll be able to buy every necessary technologies to gain superpowers.

    I'd rather be immortal. I live in the hood so i see death all the time so now it bothers me less. I don't have many friends and i don't go out of my way to make new ones so when when the friends i do have age out and become dust I'll just focus on my work that makes me happy. I can do it forever as technology constantly changes and I'll never get bored
