Would You Rather Wednesday: Be Rich or Be Smart?

Would you rather be the richest person in the world or be the smartest person in the world?

Richest Person in the World: You are somehow magically the richest person in the world. You are sort of a celebrity for  having that much money and you don’t know where your money comes from but you get large deposits into your account every week.

Smartest Person in the World: You are Matt Damon from Good Will Hunting smart (SHOUT OUT TO ROHAN SHENOY). If you don’t know something, you can instantly learn it. You have a photographic memory and you can read amazingly fast. The possibilities are endless.

    I’d rather be smart… if i was rich and stupid i’d end up poor. If i was smart like Steve Jobs I’d PwN you all and be rich!

      Given my rules, you would in theory just keep getting money every week even if you keep blowing it.

      Being Steve Jobs would be kinda fun though …

    I feel like there’s a lot more good you can do in the world being ridiculously smart so I would definitely choose to be smart rather than to be rich. It’d be really useful for ‘gettin numbahs’ at bars and could curing medical diseases.

    If you’re really stuck on cash, you could always go on Jeopardy and kick butt.

    I’m picking smartest. But I don’t want to be Will Hunting. I want to be Leonardo da Vinci.

    Not worth it to be the richest. If you’re the smartest, you can instantly make a good living doing something you love. Maybe I’m the smartest hotel reviewer in the world, so I just travel around for my entire life. The next day I’m the best mystery shopper and I’m being sent to buy expensive cars.

    Smarts>Riches every day of the week.

    Just because I’m rich doesn’t make me completely stupid…

    Smart. Just because I’m smart doesn’t mean I’m dirt poor right? I’ll take what I have and make magic happen. 🙂

      Tell me more about this ‘magic’ you speak of.

    I’ll go with rich as long as I’m not a idiot. If I’m brainiac smart then I’d have to drop all the fun, childish and idiotic things from my life. People would say oooooh you’re to smart to pick up a girl by asking how she would feel you pooped on her chest

    Well, this one isn’t as creative as last weeks…

    but I’d definitely say smartest. Life is more interesting and exciting if you can learn anything instantly. I don’t want to be the richest person in the world, cause everyone will probably want to kill you and I sure as hell don’t want to be famous because most people just spend their money on drugs and become lonely and have nothing going for them and end up a piece of dirt. Smartest takes my vote, hands down.
