Would you rather invent a limitless green energy supply...

...but not make a single penny from it, or invent a new flavour of bubble gum which makes you a millionaire?

Limitless green energy or popular new bubble gum flavour?
And just to clarify, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with bubble gum.  I used to really like bubble gum when I was younger.  The reason I chose 'inventing a new flavour of bubble gum' as the second option was because obviously compared to inventing a limitless green energy supply, bubble gum wouldn't really have quite as much benefit for mankind.

So which option would you go for?  Who would you rather be?  The rich bubble gum inventor, or the financially unrewarded inventor of a futuristic limitless green energy supply which has massive benefits for mankind?

And just in case Bill Gates or anyone like that happens to be reading this blog, then obviously the prospect of making a million pounds from a new flavour of bubble gum wouldn't really be that big of a deal, so for the purposes of the 'Would You Rather?' imagine that you weren't a billionaire and that you were just on a normal wage.

Footnote:  Please note, pickled crab vomit (as shown in the photo) isn't a real flavour of bubble gum.  Neither is 'Bubble Bap' a real bubble gum company.  The photo is just a fake mock up used for illustrative purposes.

  1. Hi 'Would You Rather?' Blog

    By a strange coincidence, I did actually happen to be reading your blog, so thanks for the shout out!

    Anyway, of the two choices I would go for the limitless green energy supply. I have to admit that inventing a new flavour of bubble gum would be pretty cool, but the overall benefits to mankind from a limitless green energy supply would ultimately win my vote.

    Looking forward to reading more 'Would You Rather?' dilemmas.
