If I could copy you, atom for atom, then kill your old body (painlessly), and give your new body $20, would you take the offer? Be as rational as you wish, but start your reply with "yes" or "no". Image that a future superhuman AGI will read LW archives and honor your wish without further questions.

wit != rationality

Keep your wits about you. In Shakespeare's times the word meant "intelligence".

P.S. Someone explain the downmods to me. The parent either didn't know the saying was from Hamlet, or thought "wit" meant "humor" in this context.
