!!!!!IMPORTANT QUESTION!!!!!!

If you could - FOR ONLY ONE DAY AND ONE DAY ONLY - either know EVERYTHING (and I mean everything, why the world is, what happens in 2 seconds, what happened 10000000 years ago, why we exist, EVERYTHING) or know absolutely nothing (you wake up one day, and you are like a newborn child for that day), which would you choose?

Keep in mind that this is for only ONE (SINGLE, 1) day only, and you won't remember any of it the next day. Please consider the both positive and negative things of both of the choices, and choose wisely.

Well I would choose door #1. If you know everything then you know how you optained the knowledge of everything. And if you know how that happened then you probably know how to make it happen again or make other shit happen. As long as you have the four crystals that is.

Well, ghroth told you the benefit, ignorance is bliss. You would be totally overwhelmed by the fact that you know EVERYTHING, you would probably kill yourself.

What if the world is about to end in 3 days, and you know that you will suffer an extremely painful and agonizing death. You see yourself dying for like 3 days. Three days of the worst physical pain possible. I think I'd rather lay in my bed in a state of bliss and awe, looking at things I've never seen before, and wondering what the hell my arm is for.

edit: You faggots, your knowledge goes away after that one day, it's how it works, there's no way around it.

Dude, you don't know anything, you have NOTHING to worry about, all you have to do it stare at everything around you and drool in awe because you've never seen it before.

TV? A mystical black box with shiny stuff on the front that you can see yourself in, omg! Wait it turned on!! OMG WHAT IS THAT THE PICTURES ARE MOVING??? BUT I DONT KNOW WHAT PICTURES ARE THIS IS AWESOME

so knowing nothing means it takes away your intelligence?


well i for one truely believe that the ability to become a god is out there. If I knew everything for one day I would know how to become a god and after that day is over I wouldnt know everything anymore but it wouldnt matter cuz I would be a god.

P.S: I think becomming a god involves some sort of fish.
