A genie offers you a choice: the powers of superman, the wealth of bill gates, or the wisdom of solomon. Which do you choose?

Which Superman? Because if it's the stronger versions, he's basically super smart already. And even vanilla Superman can easily attain ridiculous wealth. He could conceivably use his super vision to find an asteroid full of platinum, and then he'd have the strength to retrieve the whole thing himself. He could become the greatest surgeon in the world. He would be able to diagnose people by just looking at them, and possibly do surgery on them with just his eye beams. With Superman's powers, I could get wealthy just by turning a crank that generates power =P I could easily be richer than Bill Gates, then just hire wise men. And in my spare time, do wth I want without having to worry about people trying to kidnap me for ransom or even that my private jet might crash as I fly for my monthly Kobe beef dinner, in Kobe.

What if instead of the power of superman, the option was the Death Note?

David Ramirez said...

Oo. Hmm. Probably pick Gates money then. I would try to use the Death Note for good then just turn into a supervillain.

Roy Tang said...

I need to balance this better

an unwise man will eventually lose gates's wealth, and the wisdom of solomon includes longevity and riches for choosing it wisely. :P

Liz Garcia said...

Balanced naman, im just lazy to earn from powers/wisdom.

Death Note. Unlimited money still has limited power, and a financial crisis could make you useless. And there could conceivably be some bum somewhere with the wisdom of solomon but no one believes him. Without an L to find and stop me, the Death Note would be so powerful.

Powers of Superman will do. Not his weaknesses, ha. :v

Death note! Kill all the peole wealthier than you and all the people wiser than you. Lol

Wisdom of Solomon beats everything, every time

Wisdom of Solomon has one weakness: 300 wives and 700 concubines. Bill Gates is both loved/admired and also hated. I'd go for Superman. πŸ˜‚

Wisdom of Solomon please. It reduces the cost of happiness to nearly free without giving you security paranoia, envy issues. It doesn't passively give you responsibility, and doesn't create enough identity / cultural difference to cause distance between yourself and friends or kin. (Classic wealth and power problems)
