An idea came over my head earlier, would you want to be born into a rich family if you could go back? The catch would be that since you're rich, you grew up secluded from "common" people, you view down on them and basically turn into a bratty, snobby, rich kid. The pros would be that you can basically have what ever you want, live where you want, and be what you want. The cons would be that you are a complete prick to everyone that isn't rich(Knowingly or unknowingly), all you friends are most likely "fake" and only want your money or some small fame, and everyone else thinks of you as that useless "celebrity" that we hear of but all don't like.

So what will you choose? Your current life,or the easy life of an untalented celebrity?

Me personally, I'm happy with what I have. Arrogant, show off people piss me off anyway so, I could never choose a life like that. Having everything you could want sounds nice but, I wouldn't enjoy it as much as earning it. Earning your way up is what keeps you down to earth and real person. So my answer to the poll is No, I would rather struggle my way to the top and remain real and humble, then be born into the success of others work. If I ever do become rich or whatever, I would want to always keep in touch with my childhood friends, be humble, and be approachable by everyone.

i don't see a downside to being born with a silver spoon in your mouth? lol how is this debatable. why people deliberately put themselves in unnecessary positions of struggle and useless work is mind boggling to me

If it meant being hated by a lot and becoming a media prostitute then no. Seriously what makes them different than us? Social status? Finances? They do the same things we do eat, sleep and breathe. I mean when we die we can't take any of that with us. So my question is can they do what we normal everyday people can't do when they die?

Seriously? I really question that would solve anything and I was being rhetorical.

I was a prick to start with.

Could help with some money.

Give me the time machine. I'll rob a bank.

Nope nope nope. My birth family is quite well off and all they care about is more money and more things. When my grandparents on that side died all anyone talked about at either funeral were how much money they had and gossiping about the estate.

Ain't got time for that worthless yripe.

Money won't change a person's personality.

That'd be nice, but I'd rather not.

Well, despite being well off now I wouldn't mind having been born into a rich family. I grew up poor and considering I don't give a shit what others think of me... yeah I'd be alright with whatever the media did lol.
