Which two would you pick?

Probably 6 and 7?  The rest just seem like nothing.

I'm nowhere near anyone important enough to use number 2, so I'll skip that

I'll take 7 and 9. I'll finally have a large audience, and I'll have money to up the production, maybe hire a team of animators. I'd basically have my own production company and can make things exactly how I want!

Everything else is something better obtained through personal effort

4 or 7.

Weight's slowly becoming an issue because it's getting ever harder to not gain it.

Well, and money is always good to have.


6 & 7 easy.

Eating and money

I may only have reservations if despite not gaining weight, the food still deals a lot of damage to your health.

E.g., peroxidized seed oils are still damaging to one's health.  French fries and potato chips


Honestly, none of these pills appeal to me.

Look 15 years younger- Doesn't say you will have 15 additional years to your life or if any ailments you obtained in recent years will be reverted. If you got a few years to live because of recent cancer, you'll just look 15 years youngers with a few years to live.

Reading minds for three days- I imagine only practical if you're a spy, neurotic or introverted and once the three days are gone you'll probably be worse off knowing what everyone thinks of you or what people think of on a regular basis.

Forget your ex- I've not forgotten my ex, but what I had with her no longer bothers me at all that I wouldn't bother forgetting her over it. I know some find it hard to move on or let go than others but you don't need a pill for this.

Eat without gaining weight- Probably the most terrifying pill of them all. Never states if you are still capable of losing weight or not. If not it means you'll remain the physique you started with, so if you're a fat@$$, you'll remain a fat@$$, just no more or less than you were. If you are capable of losing weight then losing weight is all you can do until you end up emaciated.

Add 5cm to your height- As a tall person, I can confirm the additional height does have it's benefits, but being too tall isn't all that's good. Accounts of people with growth issues such as Andre the Giant or Robert Wadlow who suffered health issues due to challenging gravity whenever they stood up.

Become super strong- Perhaps the most practical pill, but again doesn't mention super endurance or invulnerability so more practical in a heavy-lifting workplace. Also doesn't mention how strong exactly, so careful not to let your ego weigh heavier than what you intend to lift with that super strength. Also, choosing to become a hero because of it would be a risky move. Most super-strength heroes often have other powers or skills to back them up, so again, not invulnerable to bullets.

Have lots of money- This is monkey paw territory here. Doesn't say where the money comes from and given these pills are never stated to have will or control over their benefits means the money will be constant. You'll be a living economic disaster and likely a target by the one-percenters.

Always feel happy- There are already pills for that. Prozac, cocaine, etc. If this particular pill only makes you "always feel happy" then you'll just be a psychopath. How can you understand empathy, or mourn when you're just so gosh darn chipper?

Get millions of followers- Somewhat practical if you want to start a cult, but all those people looking up to you constantly regardless what you do would quickly be a nuisance. Plus we know that negative attention is still attention so you could end up like Chris-chan or millions of people will put the effort into hating you over loving you.

It's gotta be 1 and 7.

Yes that'd mean I looked 10. No I don't see that as a downside.

6 and 7. The rest aren't useful to me.

>Yes that'd mean I looked 10. No I don't see that as a downside.

I fail to see any upside. The physicality of being a child is awful. You are small but your bones ache every night.

I realize that I'm breaking the spirit of the question in a huge fashion to say that I'd pick '6' and '9', fly to Finland, hook up with ancestral relatives, and then march into Russia straight through to Moscow in order to depose Putin and force the Russian regime to completely collapse, but I would... do all that...

If we're letting the fantasy run wild, then I'm looking to throw down with classic Soviet superheroes and other legends in the process given my powers. Probably using good ol' fisticuffs as well as some hard-core dueling weapons. Likely atop the Kremlin.

Small price to pay for being small.

But you could be beeg.

There's a reverse sweetspot. I guess you'd call that a sourspot? I'm not sure.

Anything between like 5'8 and like two stories tall sucks and I hate it and I don't want to be it.

if the one was for "lose 5cm" I'd do that in a heartbeat

7 and 8

easy as that

Eh. Not my thing. I'm tall, I generally like tall. Tall and full bodied, overly lanky is pretty meh.

But I suppose short can still embrace CHONK so there's that.

Very true.
