Yes, there are some things that are more important in life...

New reader here... lots of really great info on this site. I'll be sure to come back.

Forget exchanging the money for more life, why would you not spend that while you're living? It doesn't have to be on yourself - Bill Gates and Warren Buffet (like Carnegie and Rockefeller before them) have paved the way of demonstrating the best use of your money - seeing it do good while you're still around to appreciate the difference you made.

I would hope she wouldn't have traded all or most of it for a little more time. Not with so much more productive uses for it. Death comes for all of us. Enjoy the time you have and leave what legacy you can. Leave futility behind.

That actually brings up an interesting health care question.

A lot of money, time, and resources in hospital are spent on keeping people "alive" on machines. Is this worth it? Would it be better if more resources are allocated to people who are truly in need? (After all, we are just rationing in the health care system)

Personally, I wouldn't spend the rest of my fortune to keep myself alive just to "hang in there". My money can be better used by other people. (It's better to make sure my grandkids get their college educations than for me to be kept alive on machines for another 3 months)

Brings to mind the question--how many people on the Titanic didn't eat dessert?

News reports indicate that Ms Wang left her $4.2B estate to her feng-shui master. Seriously.
