    What if you had to choose a wish?

    Okay, another stupid question just came to my mind, answer the best you can,

    What if you had a choice of three wishes, you could choose one, which would it be? :

    1. Get gold, equal to your weight
    2. Be someone else, anyone, your soul will be transported into that someone's body, you live his/her life
    3. Get a specific skill, like, a footballer's football skills etc, any skill you want, corresponding to a living person.

    you get one shot at this, what would you choose?

    Edit: Your weight, as of that moment counts, you cant eat and cheat! and if you choose a skill, mention a living person and his skill.

    Re: What if you had to choose a wish?

    I'd choose Option 1, I'm capable of developing all the skills I need myself, and I have no desire to imitate somebody else.

    With Option 1 though, I'd have the money to pursue a career as a racing driver, and have plenty money left over to be comfortable after I retire from racing - I'd eat a lot before being weight for getting my gold though!

    THats a bit mean.

    I would choose 2 - even though its not like I hate my life, but just to see what another life is like, you know, the whole "how are they thinking" or "what kinda life do they have"

    With regards to who? Probably a hollywood A-list star (yea yea i know how lame and cliche) but it would sure be intruiging! Or a politician (god help me ) and run the country differently and probably more logically.

    I think I'd wish that this sudden burst of inane threads you've been posting... stops soon.

    EDIT - What SiM said, didn't read the thread before posting.
