Aloha Friday #124

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is:

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

This was an actual question that was asked in Kacie’s class this week. Surprisingly, she chose to be the smartest person because she felt she could use her brain to make more money. :-)

    I would rather be the richest person in the world because then you could buy all the education you could possibly need and work towards the smartest :D

    Happy Friday!

    I think I’d have to go with Smartest person.

    You can go alot farther with brains than with money.

    Well, I think Kacie is one smart cookie! :-) Her answer is exactly what I would have said. Wealth without any other redeeming attributes such as intelligence, compassion, etc. is worthless. The world already has enough rich, vapid people in it!

    Definitely smart. Because I can eventually become rich. And the richest person may eventually lose it all if he/she is not so smart… =)

    Today with the amount of bills I have to pay, I would rather be rich but then again, I would rather be smart enough not to have bills!

    I would choose to be the smartest too (though you run the risk of insanity being so smart). I think this would be the wiser choice since the old addage “A fool and is money are soon parted” became an old addage for a reason!

    I don’t know that I’d honestly want to be the smartest or the richest – that’s a lot of pressure. I can tell you I’d rather be smart and have less money than have more money and be dumb, but being rich doesn’t make you stupid or vice versa… And with all that money I could pay people to be smart for me! lol j/k

    That is a tough one. Can I pick neither? I am glad that I am smart but not too smart for my own good. I know that you can not get happiness from money either although it would be nice to have a little more than we do right now.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Oh, that’s easy! I’d choose to be smarter. Because if I was dumb and rich then I would probably blow the money really fast. But if I was smart and rich it might take me an extra day or two to blow alot of money. LOL

    That’s a tough one and both could be stressful, however I have to agree with Kacie. If I had to choose it would be the smartest, because by being smart hopefully the money will follow.

    I am probably the only person who will say this, but I’d love to be rich… or at least have money. I can’t imagine not having to worry about paying bills. Plus, if you weren’t very smart you probably wouldn’t realize how stupid you really were. lol!

    Tough question.

    let’s see. If I’m the richest person, then I could hire the smartest people to work for me. But I might not be rich for long if they outsmart me.
