Dear Friends, it's time to put on your thinking cap and come up with a serious answer to the above question.
Now I know what the answer is and I'm sure, when you think about it, you do to. So don't be timid, step up to the plate and give us your very best shot, show to the world that the Seeking Utopia Team is A1, a fraternity of great minds! Who will be the first to make the right call?
Alas I can offer no fabulous monetary prize or a trip into outer space for two! Capitalism has not been kind to me, a rebel to its amoral cause. All you will have is worldwide notoriety, the acclamation of your peers, multitudes of them.
Of course, if you're offered product endorsements, movie roles, speaking engagements, I'll accept 10% if you offer it!
It's the very least I can do.
- UPDATE: WINNERS ARE GRINNERS!
Monica, tonight, has guessed my second choice! It's MUSIC.
Surely nothing has been a greater achievement in the annals of the mediocrity that is human history than the discovery of, then the gradual sophisticated refinement of music. Few people are untouched by music. It is a vital part of their growing up. I can measure and delineate my life in pop songs while the great classics still stir me immensely.
Now to my first choice. Although Lang Mack put his suggestion on my latest post instead of this one I'm still going to give him the nod for his suggestion of 'BOOZE'!
Friends, where would humans be without WINE and other alcoholic drinks! Down through the ages it has brought solace to millions, has made feasting worthwhile, over-indulgence in it has helped to blot out the grim reality of our lives for a few hours (and created a few headaches and for some, behavioural problems). It has lubricated human communication, made chilly nights warmers, has released inhibitions, has changed minds. Music and wine are perfect companions. Where would we be without them?
Thanks to all those who participated. I'm proud of all of you! And special congratulations to the winners. Yeah!
How do you like my two choices? Do you disagree with them? Why?
