Would we be removing month(s) from the backend or skipping ahead month(s) beginning at the snap?

Like others, typically the end isn’t all too great assuming in old age. May be a decent trade off to shave off poor time. Could also get hit by a bus next week.

Immediate loss of months to “fast forward” wouldn’t be as well received. Had a great time with my daughters this weekend that would have been missed and wouldn’t be worth the coin.

Single event? 10 snaps easy.
On demand? Different strategy altogether.

It takes the month on the front end, hence the risk of immediate death if you were set to die within 30 days.

Back end is a no brainer, I'd do at least a year's worth of snaps. It would let me retire from W2 life a few years early or significantly reduce financial stress - that's worth a year on the back end. Considering how much of my life is spent for the sake of earning money, it feels stupid not to do it.

Front end is too hard to wrap my head around. The world jumps a month ahead and I miss out? Definitely changes things, and I'd avoid unless absolutely necessary. If I didn't have kids, I'd probably do a few.

No, the world remains as it is, but your expiration date is moved up 30 days from what it’s scheduled to be.

Example #1: God already knows your life is coming to an end on May 15th, 2025. You snap once, so now your date moves to April 15th, 2025.

Example #2: God has planned your death date for March 27th, 2024. You snap today……….you’re done immediately!!!

The other side to the question is: would you spend $100K to add a month to your life, one month at a time?

Oh in that case, I'm snapping away. Just like I live my life not scared of dying imminently, I would snap with the same assumption. Let's get that money!

shiiiiiit.... i'm losing a lot more of my life working myself to death anyway. I'd snap a few times a year and quit my job.... would gain a lot more life by not having to work than i would working but having a slightly prolonged life.

Just cause you're alive longer doesn't mean you're living life longer.

I think $500K would be the magic number for one snap from me.

We are in a really good place to be able to retire quite comfortably in a few years and this (tax free) would be enough to let us say the hell with it and retire immediately. I would happily trade one month at the end, that I will be in who knows what state, for a couple of years much earlier!

So if its on the front end does that mean if you were to be sick for a year you would still be sick for a year but your sickness would start a month earlier?

If that's the case fuck that I wouldn't snap.... however it's on demand.... so as long as you don't die suddenly it's a great insurance policy. Just start snapping on your death bed.

Essentially yes. For example….


…God has decided you will die 04/01/2025 after a year long battle with cancer, meaning you’d be diagnosed with cancer on 04/01/2024. If you snapped today, it would effectively move all death related circumstances forward by a month. You would be diagnosed with cancer today.

Bollocks to long life - my body is falling apart as it is. That said, I don't have much need for money, so I'd probably take it easy for the time being.

Probably you can retire way before you're 90, like me and many others, and kick back and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Life is grand and would not want to lose any of it. Not for one-hundred thousand bucks or for any amount. Hopefully I'll die in my sleep, if I'm lucky. 🍀

…when I’m old(er) but not in pain.

Yes, for sure, but instead of working till 55 thereabouts, how about not working at all?

Life is grand, that's why I would prefer to enjoy it to its fullest asap by actually living it instead of wasting years upon years at a corporate desk.

It's a no-brainer for me! As much as I like a lot of things about the 18th & 19th centuries, I wouldn't go back at all! In those time periods, I'd be dead. Modern medicine, and direction from Above, are why I'm alive today.
