    which one would you choose?

    If a genie appeared and was willing to grant you one of the following four wishes, which one would you choose and why?
    (1) you would immediately receive one million Euros (tax free)
    (2) you would have the undying love of any one woman (or man) of your choice and she (he) would love only you for your entire life, regardless of your circumstance
    (3) with the snap of your fingers, you would eliminate every buried landmine from the face of the earth
    (4) would could make one phone call a day and receive 30 minutes of free investment advice from any investment advisor(s) (e.g. Warren Buffett) you choose for the rest for your life

    Hold the genie hostage and demand all four, starting with #3. #2 would have to be changed to a dog for me, anyway, and I never needed a genie to make them love me their whole lives. I think it was called food and affection.

    I'd go for the one million Euros.

    If eliminating world poverty and greed was an option I would go for that, land mines are a nasty problem but one of many many others and with 1 million Euros you could help and also raise awareness using the countless TV appearances you would get:- having been visited by a genie, everyone would want to know about it.

    If I stay with Sandra she will love me forever and I can get free investment advice from Moog, 12Call and Blake 7.

    My advice: Just keep movin' straight ahead. Every now and then you find yourself in a different place."

    Process of elimination...4 by far eclipses 1 unless you're Thai, so that's narrowed it down to three.

    Then, never mind clever words, 4 would also very soon start earning you the undying love and respect of very special people.

    So we're down to having as much $ as you would need to do your own good, which would more than compensate for failing to rid the world of landmines that will anyway reappear from the very next conflict...

    ^ It doesn't state that the investment advice would be fruitful or not.

    Keda, you make great logical sense by choosing #4, but I probably don't have enough time for Warren Buffet to improve my finances very much. Getting the woman of my dreams (#2) so easily might become boring after a few years. As a long-term investor, #3 eliminating land mines has some appeal, since many lifetimes of good karma could come from such an act. I'm not quite Buddhist enough to really believe that, so I'd probably go for #1. With a million Euros, some could be squandered on quality Asian women and some could be given to charities. That way my willie and my karma both get in on the action.

    Cool

    No. 1

    Money on that much is not easy to get. I might spend my whole lifetime to reach that. You can see how stingy I am.

    what's more, Love with no money hardly work out these days.:-)

    Option #3 without doubt. I have #2 already, and more money would not significantly improve the quality of my life.
