Don't be lazy explain why you picked the second choice.

Honestly this would be a hard choice for me.

1) Not really an option for me I'd get bored after a few days trying out my immortality by killing myself in humorous ways but traveling around the world free as a bird would be fun.

2) This would be a good choice for me because i love history and could explore every inch of my favorite historical civilizations (Greece, Rome, Egypt, Japan, and China) and i could alter the time line in my favor (meet my birth parents, get Kooay to work on rule breaker, make it so sandow was never born).

3) This is a pretty safe choice be married to whoever you want be it a real person or a fictional person made real and will love you forever, money for the rest of your life, aging gracefully, and a great survivability rate.

This is a tough choice for me but I'd pick option 2. I'd enjoy being able to change my appearance at will. Going up to one of you guys as Rena with a knife with a slasher smile would be great laugh and walking around looking like dark Sakura would freak my brother out a bit. Traveling through time would be fun as well.

Before I pick, I have a question. In the third point of option 2, it says that dying resets you to when you first got the power, keeping memories. Does it reset the 200 year counter?

To make it fair because the second option has so many loopholes, no it does not reset the 200 years. And those are subjective.

1 - My unrealized potential to troll the world, and test the limits of mortality and the universe are by far the best option. Also anytime you have a "nothing can kill u" or "can eat anything" type of clause you can find one way or another to become god.

Deciding between 1 and 3. I suppose 2 would be interesting for a while, but it would take some of the fantasy out of life; some things sound cooler when you don't know what really happened.

Unless you found some way to change your appearance using Option 1, you would probably stand out physically after the human race has gone through a period of evolution. Also, it would be pretty saddening to see your descendants die before you.
On the other hand, you would be powerful enough to protect your offspring from any danger, acting like a guardian angel. Hard to tell if you would care enough about them after living so long though, or even empathize with someone from such a different culture.

Option 3 sounds like the best to me. You could exploit it to create a line of seemingly God-given royalty. Of course this all depends on if your offspring manage to procreate or not. Initiative and self-knowledge all play a part too. Your descendants could either become the greatest conquerors in history (Invincible Kings that won't die unless they commit suicide), or a series of misinformed government tools.
Add in an option to communicate with your descendants by bringing them to see you in Heaven, or visiting them in person, and I'm completely sold.

EDIT: Really nice OP Kooay. rep++

i would be too lazy to choose and continue to live my normal sh1tty life

choice 1 - being immortal sounds boring (i would prolly end imortality at 100 years =.=), and going etheral and trolling with ur infinite energies at 2000mph is pointless

choice 2 - being able to control time gets too complicated, and i'd eventually just stop trying, sure i can control time and make myself unbeatable, but that would defeat the point of competition in the first place

choice 3 - people want more, and if u have everything, wut is there to want? i'd prolly suicide from the lack of want for anything in life as everything is already mine

if u force me to choose, i'd choose choice 2 cuz it make my life slightly easier, altho more complicated as i have more choices to choose from. but... as i said bfore, i prolly won't take those choices anyways

its amazing how preferential the responses were.

I was dictated by self.

Vroopmaster was dictated by family.

Kai-Wario was dictated by lack of motivation for anything more complicated.

Michael was dictated by...hrmm I don't really know.
For me I have to make a sacrifice between 1 or 2, the only one there is no way I'm choosing is 3, because essentially it gives you a seemingly normal life but removes all the challenges and difficulties like finding love or making money, so I tend to think of it as a 'wuss' option, character and virtue is built by overcoming these challenges and if you just obtain it without any effort you will suck socially, which is the only mundane problem option 3 doesn't solve. I suppose it isn't that bad, but the other two have a lot more to offer.
Benjamin Franklin wrote:There are only two things that are certain in life: Death and taxes.
Option 1 makes these two things not certain at all, which technically leads to the conclusion that anything is possible. While immortality gives me the time to accomplish great things, I'm lazy and a procrastinator so having unlimited time would actually make me accomplish less, since besides the ethereal ability, everything else has to be done the same old way, through hard work. Option 2 seems the most lucrative to me, since I have temporarily decided my life's goal to be to experience everything the world and possibly universe has to offer, and this fits the most with that goal. But my attitude may change over time so if possible I would save making the choice until middle age.

with option 1 you can go do everything to a point where everything has been done before for you and you have nothing better to do than to slowly do whatever the hell you want to do, sounds perfect.

really? because right now life seems pretty boring too. I think that being immortal changes what life is, even if you have to do everything through a mortal way, your mentality changes, how you achieve things change. You know in the end you will always win because you can always , always, ALWAYS out last your enemies. And so it becomes how can things be interesting to you, and finding more and more the unexpected things in life.

So is he saying he wants to live a simple life where he usually doesn't have what he wants, but free of complications and boredom? It sounds as if he has nothing he wants to achieve or accomplish, not even interested in winning bouts or discovering some sort of meaning or place in life. Truly, the mind of Kai-Wario-sama is beyond my comprehension.

Number One definitely, I would hone every skill I can possibly obtain to the peak and beyond and since my body forever remains 25, it makes it much easier.
I could also witness the death of the universe and live beyond even that, even the death of our universe would not kill me, and I can see what exists beyond the end.

As Number Two you would die at the collapse of the universe and be reset, but you can do anything else Number One can, plus more, its just that if someone really wanted to kill you, they could sneak attack and knock you out, make you brain dead so you can't use your power for 200 years and you would lose your power and die.

Oh, romance interests me. Number 3 for sure. And for those of you calling it dull, think of it this way. You can have fun manipulating it's loopholes, while still having a FAGGOT KERN-PERETS. Oh, and not that I would personally do this,but as your partner loves you unconditionally, remember, you can sleep around, and have as many of your glorious invulnerable conqueror spawn at your disposal. And that money could multiply so easily and quickly now that you have enough backup to do INSANE investments.

It was a tough choice between 2 and 3 for me, but 2 I think is better. I mean, you can take you and your lover on historical joyrides! Ride history like a mechanical bull! And besides, 3 just kinda seems like mind control.

This is a lot of bs.

all of the "Getting trapped" problems and "being chased" problems that the article puts up are negated since you can go ethreal and thus nothing can hold you down. You are truly impossible to capture, even the master ball couldn't capture you.

Then the alzheimers point is just "oh yeah sure, you will just get alzheimers, even though we know nothing about it"

The WORST one is Time speeds up until you are insane - it says that each year goes by faster because it represents a smaller portion of your life - CEPT that you live for an infinite amount of time and so this doesn't hold up. Not to mention that this article was most likely not written by someone age 95 who can vouch that time speeds up. "but amos there is an article attached" the article says that the choice for a proportionality constant is ARBITRARY, meaning he could very well be wrong. I have my own personal opinion that we become desensitized to new things, and life feels extremely monotonous and everything seems similar as we grow older and thus time spent on things that you have witnessed thousands of times before don't stand out as much. But at the same time, I too could be so very wrong, like this crazy person from the article.

The writer of this article is pretty wrong on a lot of points besides being stuck - but you outlast everything, even the break down of stone, because you are IMMORTAL.

Debunking Cracked's 5 vs immortality.
#5 Never gonna happen.
#4 Just hide ethereal for like 50 years and nobody will know you again. Or you can learn ethereal fu and beat the crap outta the army without even trying, sleep ethereal just so you don't get low blown.
#3 Yeah, true, but not necessarily a bad thing.
#2 Thats just relative perception.
#1 You can go ethereal
