What would you pick?

A genie appears to a philosophy professor and offers to grant him a wish: wisdom, beauty or 10 million dollars. The professor picks wisdom. There is a flash of light and he is transformed into the wisest man on earth. But he just sits there staring at his desk. A colleague of him who witnesses the event approaches and says: “You are a wise man now, say something.” The professor says: “I should have picked the money.”
