Quick Hits 32

Sometimes I hear an utterance or catch a quick visual of something that sticks in my mind. As this sensory input rolls about in my head, several different outcomes are possible. It might be the case that after a moment of consideration, the input is deleted as uninteresting, trivial, or too much for me to deal with. However, another possible outcome is that the input keeps demanding my attention. It somehow wants me to wrestle with it and give it more than just a passing notice. In such cases, they can end up here, in my blog series called Quick Hits.

If someone were given one wish that would come true, would you think less of them if they wished to be a billionaire instead of wishing for world peace or a cure for cancer? What fraction of such wishes do you think would end up being an absolute disaster?

What do you think?
