Eff no. You'd have to hate yourself and love money more than your own self lol.

Actually, I'm working on getting stronger and stuff, so my future self would probably kick my ass hard if I tried.

Greed is deadly. Money doesn't matter in the end, especially when you have to kill yourself in order to obtain it. So no I wouldn't kill myself. That's just foolish.

Lol. Money is important. You wouldn't work for it if you truly felt that it were not. It's as important as the food it buys, the shelter it provides and the the bills it pays (quoted someone there). Not to say that it is the most important thing but don't kid yourself about its importance in a world where bartering is the rule. For 8 billion? I just might.

Yes. If I kill future me and age and can't figure out a way to get out if it, despite knowing when, where, and how young me is coming, then I'm a fool and deserve death.

If I had a chance of being able to kill myself, then still no. Why would I kill myself for money. You might as well become a hitman if you feel that is right.

@taichokage: Then think of this. When you look into your own eyes, the second before your futures death, would you think "is the money worth more than your own life?" or "hey why not? Might as well spend it quick since I shortened my life span!" Thats what I meant. I know just how important money is now, but what I was saying was would it be just as important when deciding at that moment in time. Sorry for the confusion.

It depends entirely on who my future self turned out to be. If I just happened to be a scumbag with no job or house etc. then I would do the world and myself a favor and take my 8 billion and 30 years to leave my mark. If on the other hand I had a good job and a loving family and kids, I doubt I would see the money as a substitute to that.

For the sake of this I will go under the assumption that I end up being some kind of scam artist in later life, I which case I would shoot myself and take the money.

I would first find out why I have to kill my self... if my future self did something horrible than I would kill my future self... but if it was for no reason than I wouldn't

Naw... I'd become best pal with my future self and ask so many questions to prevent bad things in happening in my future ^_^
