I tend to say "while" to mean an amount of time ("for a while" or "in a while") and "whilst" to mean "at the same time as" ("I'm wanking whilst typing").

whilst I would use while, if I were to use while whilst using the word whilst, it may cause me to look a fool for a while.... whilst skydiving.

"Whilst" makes you sound slightly more cultured.

I've said 'whilst' for a while, though only because I used to think it made me sound smart, and it became force of habit.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

It depends on the person. Or on the continent, really.
'While' was really taken up more in American English and so 'whilst' wasn't used as much in common, general conversation and died out, whilst it was still quite used in the U.K.
Friends, applaud the comedy is over.


I'd dance with you but...

British people are better. That's why we use the word 'whilst.'

Hit this once or twice, and you'll be twice as nice.
