    Please select in the poll what you could use most in your life. If you want, you can tell us why :tongue:

    I didn't see "a steady supply of free money" in there, so I went with the next best thing: motivation to actually make something of myself.

    Where's the junk food option? Oreos are the most important thing in my life.

    This is a very difficult question to even begin to answer for me, since at any given point in my life, what I need from my life could vary tremendously.

    I assumed freedom included free money, and women dancing around in tight bikinis while shooting guns off into the air. So that’s what I went with.

    OK, with that in mind, I chose "wisdom", since I'm constantly seeking greater knowledge within both my own subject field and facts about a wide range of areas outside of my field. Although I could have just as easily selected "understanding".

    Would it be fair if I voted for all of them at once?

    After 4+ months of dealing with annoying house guests, I'm going to have to vote for peace.

    I need sleep. Why isn't that in your poll?

    At my age I need some more energy, bit I will settle for some motivation. Sometimes when I get started at something the energy follows.

    PhysicsForums is missing in the poll.

    I also miss the option "long polls".

    Confidence and Faith. I think big changes are brewing and it's hard to make a leap into the unknown. (Btw, I don't mean faith in supernatural things - I'm atheist. I mean faith that things will turn out OK.)

    Looking at this list made me very aware of the good things I have o:): Love, Wisdom ( I hope), Peace, Freedom...I'm very lucky!!!

    Most of my life I've wanted Peace, and for the most part I feel I have almost achieved it at last (though I don't sound too convincing).

    Strength, wisdom, peace, creativity, selective forgetfulness and umm...time to gripe about boredom.
    (And another whiteboard...this one has a huge 'bubble' in the center.)
