I wouldn't mind being a ghost haunting the Metropolitan Museum of Art.   Cool

I suppose I could spend a few extra thousand years improving my clarinet skills and jamming with deceased greats... Eternity, though? No, it doesn't appeal to me.

Personally I can’t think of anything worse. Most seem to want one though in my experience.

I'd probably end up as a hostile spirit or poltergeist haunting somewhere random and scaring the shit out of ghost hunters.

Wouldn't that be fun?

Nope lingering forever is stupid when you die it should be a true ending with true resolution to all things .

A funnier thing would be to haunt the corrupt politicians!

There aren't enough angry spirits for that.

I guess it would depend on the version of an afterlife.

As long as I could choose when it ended, there were always new activities to learn, new placed to explore, new things to learn, etc, I might be ok with it.

All of the afterlives as described in any religious text (Quran, Bible, Book of Mormon, Bhagavad Gita, Vedas, etc) are horrible sounding to me. I would definitely choose death over any of them.

You'd believe if you just opened your heart" is a terrible argument for religion. It's basically saying, "If you bias yourself enough, you can convince yourself that this is true." If religion were true, people wouldn't need faith to believe it -- it would be supported by good evidence.
