Wisdom? What possible use is wisdom? I'd rank that below Clock Manipulation in sheer utility.Reminds me of an old joke:Three buddies are fishing in a boat on a lake, early one Saturday morning: Jack, Mike, and Sam. Suddenly, the heavens part and an angel descends from on high. The angel says "Sam, thou art truly a follower of the Lord, for you have been virtuous all of your life, following in the ways of Christ since you were a boy. As a reward, the Lord will give you either unsurpassed wisdom, or $100 million. Which do you choose?"Sam, the only Christian among the three, thought for a moment and said, "I choose wisdom."The angel replied, "It is done!" and there was a great thunderclap as light flashed all around them, and then the angel disappeared.Jack and Mike crowded around Sam, eager to hear of what great words of wisdom might emerge from his mouth. "Com'on, Sam! Tell us something! Say something wise!"Sam paused for a moment and said, "I should have taken the money."
