Would I use a transporter? Fuck and no.
I don't care if it's a difference that makes no difference, I'm too go damn egotistical for that shit. Plus, I'd rather risk a shuttle crash over being scattered to the molecular winds or turned inside out if the transporter fails or the operator's hand one to many with lunch.

Exactly. The transporter is a machine that kills you and create a duplicate who thinks he's you and gets to sleep with your wife. They'd never get me to use it.
The plot of "The Prestige" is exactly that.
