Hi swalia! How's it going?
This is a variation of the classic question of Achilles: Live long or be Glorious?
We know that professional football players tend to make the latter choice all the time---to be Glorious, to be a Football "Hero," an American Sports Hero, to possibly be a Role Model (which Charles Barkley always renounces).
But you know, such questions are like trap-wishes posed to a literally-minded Jeannie.
For example, suppose I said: "Yeah, I live ten years less to be famous."
Now suppose I was only going to live ten more years from now. And suppose a dinosaur comes out of the past and eats me and then disappears again.
Now then, I would have achieved "fame" (the whole Andy Warhol "fifteen minutes" thing). I would have gotten that in exchange for living ten years less.
On the other hand, If I was, say, thirty years old and there was a way for me to know I was "destined" to live to be one hundred years old, I could stand "only" making it to ninety for the chance to be "extremely famous."
One the other hand, you have to be careful there as well. How would I spend my remaining sixty years? And what would I be extremely famous for? Is someone going to put handcuffs on me because I am the notorious bank robber, whose exploits have left several people injured and killed. Am I going to get "life" in prison?
Or, am I thirty and get to choose how I become extremely famous, for curing cancer, for example, know that I was originally "destined" to live to one hundred, and only had to sacrifice ten years to live until ninety?
