    Three goddesses approach you and ask you to vote who you think the most beautiful is.

    The first says that if you vote for her, she will grant you wisdom. You will be the most wise person on the earth.

    The second says that if you vote for her, she will grant you athleticism. You will be the greatest athlete of on earth.

    The final says that if you vote for her, she will grant you love. Any person of your choosing will fall madly in love with you for life and stay loyal to you to the death.

    Who do you choose? Justify your answer. What would you do with your new found skills.

    I think taking #2 you still have a reasonable chance at acquiring 1 and 3 in fairly good measure.

    I'd ask to sample each gift for five minutes before making my choice.

    Option 1 is tempting, but with 2 i'll have enough cash to cover any bad decisions i make.

    I choose numero tres. I am at that age where I need to try and settle down and start family, but I need someone smoking hot who wont damage my fragile ego.

    You would think, but empirical data suggests that is no guarantee.

    According to Sports Illustrated, 78 percent of National Football League (NFL) and an estimated 60 percent of National Basketball Association (NBA) players go bankrupt or are under financial stress in just two years and five years, respectively, after their retirement.

    http://www.msn.com/en-ca/sports/more-sports/21-sports-stars-whove-gone-bankrupt/ss-BBlmIiX

    An attorney referral firm, Pro Athlete Direct, issued a news release Thursday citing research that it says indicates that 60 to 80 percent of pro athletes divorce at some point in their lifetimes.

    Stunning, I know. They ain't goddess because they don't know what's going on.

    I want to say the third, so I could make the first two fall in love with me and give me their gifts, but I suspect Goddesses aren't people.

    So I choose wisdom.

    NHL is where the wisdom is at.

    #3 would actually be a curse to my thinking. Going through one's life not knowing if those that love you, love you or do so at your bewitching. I've seen much to believe that the meaning of life is having shared that life with others. (shout out to @TeTe) I would prefer that this togetherness with others be as genuine as possible...

    I agree with @BisexualMMA and would opt for #2. Wisdom is gained through experience, IMO, while knowledge is much the same without the experience, so I wouldn't want to have it without myself attaining it - come hell, high water or happiness because of those trials.

    Sorry, too long. Outski.

    Very wise. You are right, Goddesses aren't people ;)

    I feel so corny. I'd choose 3 :oops:

    Loyal for life is good. Loyal people can be hard to find tbh.

    #1 is extremely tempting. I dunno if you can really trust a bunch of goddesses though, especially when you're asked to favour one over the other.

    "To the fairest one" and all that...

    1. While I am tempted to say 3 because I am madly in love with a girl I can't be with, a truly wise person knows that you it isn't true love if you need wizard intervention to make it happen.
