As long as you're puff-puff-passing, s'all good.
Either blue or rainbow
Blue: Who gives a shit whether or not believe me, as long as I can personally gain from the ability.
Rainbow: I don't smoke, so I'd just sell it. Free money.
I can see your point about blue and its benefit, but consider all those stories and movies that have the crazy person that can see the future. That person is crazy because they can see the future. Shit like that will fuck with your head.
right? I think that ones more of a curse. i.e. the case of Cassandra from Greek mythology
Seriously. Blue and sports betting or lottery tickets...
They'll believe you when you're running the most successful hedge fund in the history of man.
They. Won't. It's the. Rule. Why the. F*ck. Are these. Dots. Appearing. Between. My . Words. Dammit.
Well if they don't believe you that just means your odds go up in sports betting.
It's better to have people not believe you if you know the outcome in betting...
Hmm... valid point. Still, bad things happen right? What would you do if you predicted, say, your son's marriage with a crazy woman that has a cheating fetish? Or to take it further down, with a murderer? Or simply the death of someone in your family? Would you sit and play with your thumbs? Wouldn't you try to intervene? And when you did, you would be trashing over your son's freedom, so he will be mad at you. How will you justify your attempts to stop him from being with her?
What I mean is, predicting validly stuff, can be extremely tiring for you, and the people around you. Your newfound "power" will change the way you think, and make everyone around you think you are weird, thus destroying your life in the community, possibly make romance go bad. All for a chance to predict the future of bets, because you see PARTS of the future. Instead, why not take the gold one, which won't strain anything else than romance, while allowing more chances of succeeding in money, because you don't have to wait for unpredictable events to have an edge over others; you have luck on your side, which allows for gains even if you DO make a mistake, or simply do not try at all. It is simply a better choice if you have money in mind, because it pays off more consistently, and doesn't strain your mind.
But honestly, if I had to choose, I would go with rainbows all the way. Well, I DO live in Greece, "Where the law is above all else, and all power comes from following it."... NOT! Here, especially because I don't live in a big city, but close to one, I have everything I need. Police doesn't even come close to my house unless something big happens, no nearby shops with security cameras looking at the street or such, and I live in a house. Not an apartment. This gives me the freedom to use it without being suspected by anyone, or sell it easily, because I have the ease to transport it freely, and I do live close enough to the city, to have clients. Well, unless the satchel is delivered to my mail, which means that the mailman might leak... Then, I go with the red one, provided that the aging process slows down along with it. I don't want to be a crumbling old man forced to be alive... If it doesn't, sh*t I go with purple, changing my muscles into responsive carbon fiber, to allow any amount of force to be used, without the possibility of strains, and to give myself a permanent full body bullet vest.
That's why I leaned toward the rainbow as well.
the one about the future!
I would choose the grey one. Because being super intelligent can basically give you all the other things.
After you get the grey one, you'll realize that your statement is not logical, and the realtionship between cause and effect will become clear.
You ever see the movie Limitless?
I'd pick the grey one. Not necessarily to gain all other things, but mostly to make a lot of change happen without having to worry about old age. But could you explain your comment, please? I'm intrigued.
Maybe he's saying that by picking the grey one, he would gain the intelligence necessary to realize that he could not, in fact, get all the other things merely by being extremely intelligent.
Was it a veiled burn? I hope so!
You are correct Dude. I meant that even being a super genius would not be able to grant the traits of the others. Especially luck, talking to animals and increasing your lifespan.
Well with the grey one, I figure out how to make other people attracted to me. I wouldn't have to be lucky, I could just excel through school and get a high paying job. Going for a stretch here, say I'm intelligent enough to figure out how to increase human life span. By studying animal behavior, I could learn how to communicate. Maybe not talk like you and I, but I could get pretty darn close. With all that money I would make, I could change my whole body if I wanted to. I could study events, economics, behavior, whatever, and be able to accurately predict upcoming events.
And then you get hit by a drunk driver and there goes the lifespan increase. Could you pass me that bottle? I'm predicting the future.
The novelty would quickly wear off when you realized that those in power to affect change never listen to the voice of reason or intelligence. The frustration would be unbearable.
Not the ability to talk to animals lol...
Though you could definitely make that monthly satchel of weed happen!
Seriously especially if you've ever fapped with your dog/cat in the room...
Oh god why...
I wouldn't want weed showing up in my mail. If this is a magical statue why couldnt it show up somewhere that my mail carrier isn't going to flip shit and call the cops about?
I could argue that the green would would be VERY useful in the sense that if your senses become keener, you can use this to your advantage. Consider if you became knowledgeable of all the intricacies of body language and you used your keener senses to detect these things. You could essentially read people and influence them. That's just my two cents.
Also, on a side-note -- I think someone could make a kick-ass movie using these in the story.
Am i the only one who wants to talk to animals?
No. Me too. Its one of the ones with zero down side. Plus, you know, Eliza Thornberry shit would start happening.
right?! plus the keener senses, which would be awesome. id teach squirrels to spy for me.
Zero down sides? But what if your cat turns out to be a huuuuuuuge asshole?
No problem. Even if he IS an asshole, you would learn that he wanted to kill you anyway. Thus, you would throw him in the mincing machine earlier. [evil laugh]ku ku ku ku![/evil laugh)
Mmmmm delicious kitty burgers.
With barbecue sauce!
The purple (in between the green and blue, just in case people view the first one as purple too).
Sigh. You know that this choice begs a question, right?
And just to make this begged question more obvious, which part would that be?
I've replied to Renard's comment if you want to know - I didn't see the point of posting it twice.
I have skin condition which is also on my scalp, so my "part of the body" would be my skin. Fortunately, it doesn't effect my face much, but there are times when it results in my eyes swelling to the point where I can't see.
It's kinda the reason why I won't wear anything that reveals my skin much, and makes me feel really really ugly.
dang... that really stinks...
Yeah, I have stuff for it now, but my legs got hit with it really really badly and as a result have scarring on them from it.
Nothing I can really do about it so yea.
I wish up-voting could express empathy... I'm no good with words.
It's fine. But yea, that's why I'd go with purple
interrupts you before you finish your sentence
MAKE MY DICK 5 FOOT LONG.
Have fun with that...
I will. My penis will be my best friend. We will cuddle, and watch movies together, and play catch.
He'll be the father I never had.
We all know what the bottom purple one is for...
I think I'd pick either red of grey. Red if I stayed healthy while I was older, but not if I was just some super old invalid.
Anyone who picks yellow is an asshole.
Id pick the green...
purple plz. i want wings :D
blue: use thr ability to see the future to tell lottery numbers instant millionare
I'd either pick green or grey...
green of course, makes the rest peanuts to get.
for the purple one can my one body part i change be my brain, and can i change it to be imortal
Green one please. Don't need love, sight of the future, or drugs. (Or any of the other stuff)
Purple and into porn I go! Btw, the rainbow is a lie. It's really just oregano but you're too fucking stupid to notice.
any of them but the blue one.
purple, giant penis
Talk to animals, lifespan, or weed... gg.
GREEN! I'm happy with everything else
