  • Reread all three volumes of The Feyman Lectures on Physics, doing all of the exercises in the accompanying book. Because my physics has gotten too rough.
  • I'll take breathing underwater. I can already see in pitch dark: I have flashlights! But being able to spend time in the sea exploring flora and fauna would be cool.
  • Perfect health. Because I have plenty of shekels already.
  • Number pick:1234

1. Learn Franz Liszt's La Campanella on piano, because it contains difficult patterns and technical feats that will force me to improve my abilities as a musician. Always wanted to learn it but never had the time... now I'll make the time!
2. Definitely breathing under water... very rarely is it legitimately pitch dark, thanks to the moon, windows at night, ambient light, and FLASHLIGHTS! Plus I can't swim, and I almost drowned once on a vacation in Hawaii, which was terrifying and I never want to experience again.
3. 1 Million USD, because perfect health can only help me, but it can't help my aging parents who would greatly benefit in their health and contentment with less financial struggles. I'm still young and have many more years of (probably) good health. And I could still die perfect health or not, from any number of atrocities which these days seems quite likely... natural disasters.. car accidents... active shooters and criminals in general.

Number: 3498

Thank you vinh, you're awesome!

By the ocean under the volcano
Plant a lot more bananas and papayas around my yard. They are something that could be eaten everyday.
Definitely breathing underwater. I live near the ocean and if I could breathe underwater I might turn into a fish.
Perfect health. All the money in the world wouldn't matter if you aren't healthy.
Number 1029 😉

Loose some weight and start eating better. Would like to get off bp meds.
If the seeing in the dark would improve my eyes I would definitely take that over breathing under water. Eye sight is one of the most important things to me.
Being in my mid 60s the health wouldn't mean as much to me as being able to help family out monetarily.

Start exercising regularly. Hopefully so I can avoid taking cholesterol lowering meds.

Would love to be able to see during the total absence of light. Many years back I was on the top floor of an 11 story building when the power went out. The fire escape was in the center of the building; therefore no windows. I could not see my hand in front of my face. I had to descend 22 flights of stairs all the while thinking that I could trip at any second and not be found for hours.

Show me the money! Perfect health until when? All things considered, I'd rather leave my family the money than a surprise ending. "He was in perfect health. No one saw this coming."

Thanks for the chance to play. 1157

I gold my last my very Goliath today....It was a triple. I cant keep anything good formyself...What a collection you have. I too would take 1M instead of perfect health forever. who know when my time is up. I rather secure the well being of my family and others if I can. Also I am healthy now so I am crossing my finger ;-)

I would love to see in the dark. ;-)

This year goal is to fine tune and release Genesis.

Cheers!

Must own at least 5 of my lights to participate.

Damn, so close! Maybe by next year..... Good luck to all!


1. Goal for 2019- Read at least 3 books. I have all but stopped reading books, I need to change this. Another fella above is re-reading his Feynman lectures, that's not a bad idea!

2. See in the dark, I think. I'm not big on water, and most of the water I'm near would kill you with how cold it is.....

3. I have LOTS of health issues, I don't think I could put a price on a week without Type 1 IDDM. I'd take perfect health, it would save me about that amount of money in a decade or two anyways. The freedom it would bring is just unparalleled by money.

4. Why is this interesting? I'm doing the lowest sub-lumen runtime challenge on a Zebralight SC62w! Gonna see if we can get a year on .01 lumens :)
