What are the winning numbers for tomorrow’s super mega million gajillion dollar lottery drawing?
Yeah, ok, that’s sort of a cop out question, but really, there’s no reason why I shouldn’t profit from honesty.
Alright then, how about this: What are the secrets of the universe? How do I cure cancer? How do I build a spaceship that will travel faster than light?
That’s actually three questions, but I’d take an honest answer to any one of them. However, I don’t know exactly to whom I would pose my queries nor who would answer… eh, whatever.
I’d only ask if I was the only one who knew the answer. Knowledge is power, so they say, and I would hold the power. I could lord it over everyone else and potentially profit from it.
Secret to the universe + ??? = profit. I haven’t quite figured out what “???” stands for yet, but I suppose that would depend on what the answer was.
Bwa ha ha.
