Being famous is shallow and meaningless. I would never leave school for anything. If fame wants me it can come to me, I'm no going out of my way to seek it.

well said

Not famous, but recognised for a talent. Not like paparazzi stalked, but some of the other perks you get from fame. Like money.

I'd hate to be famous as i am a very reclusive person. Intellect is way cooler.

smart!! more helpful and meaningful

and you may eveb become famous from it

Fame doesn't last, and eventually people will cast you aside like a used tissue. If you're smart and famous, like Steven Hawking or Einstein, you have something to fall back on.

I much rather be smart. Who wants to be famous for being a tard?
13 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 1/18/06 - 6:15:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Smart. Fame doesn't last as long. Assuming you don't become stupid from lack of brains after death...
13 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 1/18/06 - 6:47:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Smart! Why would I want to be famous?
13 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 1/18/06 - 6:53:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Smart. I'm too shy to be famous
13 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 1/18/06 - 6:57:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh I will go with smart on this one. Being famous would be nice, but your most likely to eventually become a has-been. With smarts I could use my genius to succeed all throughout life.

Plus, I could finish school more easier and probably faster (because I could work full-time and go to school full-time...as in max credits per semester) without killing myself!

I'd rather be smart. It's no fun being in the public spotlight your entire life.
13 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 1/18/06 - 7:05:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
I's rather be smart
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 4/3/06 - 3:01:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd rather be smart, i feel sorry for celebraties. They can't do anything, say anything or go anywhere without the media following them and making up stories etc. So for that reason i'd rather have smarts, and become successful at something that dosen't put me in the spotlight.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 4/14/06 - 5:09:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't like the media being perfect and I wouldn't want to be a super-genius. All I'd want is to make enough money to have a nice house and stuff.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 4/14/06 - 5:10:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would *much* rather be smart. Fame is useless.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 4/14/06 - 5:13:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't find fame very desirable. On the other hand being smart and handicapped like Hawkin ? I'll take 'smart' anyway.

I was gonna say something along these lines.

i'll take smarts over famous. though being famous looks like fun, it would get annoying being on t.v. all the time
13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 6/2/06 - 11:30:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
Smart, for sure. Being famous doesn't really appeal to me.
13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 6/3/06 - 5:16:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
If I could remain just smart enough to set some money aside in the case that I do lose my fame I'd rather be famous. Why? Because like I said, I'd set aside some money for me to live off of after my fame has faded unlike most other famous people. I'd be paranoid that I was only a one-hit wonder or something.
13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 6/3/06 - 5:21:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
Honestly, I find nothing appealing about fame at all, it's a complete loss of privacy, and being reduced to an object by a pathetic populace that finds nothing more amusing then relishing in your own life and failures just because they have no lives of their own.

I already consider myself intelligent though, but if the question was between money or smarts, like I said, I would rather be rich right now than somehow smarter. But while fame implies riches, I'd rather be rich and obscure.

Smart, I would hate to be famous.
13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 6/3/06 - 8:08:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
Smart,being famous would ruin your life.
