I would like to be the most awesome.
Either that or a Ninja.
Its a toss up between money and knowledge/info. I wouldn't mind being a genius, have an endless memory and speak multiple languages. Knowledge can lead to money but I think life would come easier if you could comprehend everything without any problems, it would just be natural. Money would be nice because there is a lot you can do with money and can relieve stress about bills. Seems like most problems in life revolve around money or the lack of. How much money are we talking about though? I still think knowledge would be awesome, be able to have a conversation with anyone about anything. Prob be a professor or something.
That's why I picked information/intelligence. I would love to know what happened to JFK, roswell, govt conspiracies, military coups. Having all the money in the world doesn't get you access to that. Who knows, you may be able to do a little insider trading .
With money I could buy myself equipment for a race team and spend my "spare" time bulding, racing, and fixing race cars.
With money I could spend months touring Italy and all the finest establishments there (i.e., Ferrari).
With money I could rent out wineries, fancy restraunts, and have enjoyable get-togethers with my family and friends.
With money I could fly anywhere I wanted on a whim.
With money I could buy an island retreat for my downtime.
With money I could have season tickets to events I WANT to go to.
With money I could travel around the globe in whatever manner I deem fit.
With money I could impact charities and worthwhile foundations.
With money I could be president.
The list goes on and on.
I just envision having all the knowlege looking like this:
Let me clairify and at the same time avoid slamming your question . As the original question was posted on 3/5/12 and I was lucky enough to retire 12 years ago at age 54 I'm not too worried about poverty. Good taste and talent made it all possible (great luck didn't hurt either ). I learned years ago that one of life's great pleasures is playing the part of a fool every now and then and it can be great fun .
So, in my case, I'm sticking with 'healthy' as my responce to the original question. If I ever win the Mega Millions Lottery (yea, I play it as I'm sure I can make room in my garage for a couple of Ferrari's ) perhaps some day I can add 'stinking rich' to my title . While not likely, being healthy affords me more time to be a winner .
