The funny thing about this would you rather is that invisible cloak’s are actually on the verge of existence. I’m sure the US government developed the technology back in the 70’s but I know for a fact a few private companies are developing prototypes, notably this Canadian camouflage-design company (cannot reveal the actual name due to security purposes, the moment I say something I’ll get a blow-dart logged into the side of my neck). They claim their real-life invisibility cloak tricks the human eye by bending light around a person or object.
Can you imagine owning an invisible cloak? You could sneak into every major sporting event unpaid. You could trip Rajon Rondo and no one would ever know. I guess that’s a bad example — “get well Rajon, it’s a long road to recovery.” You could sneak into the hottest parties around the world and if security has a problem with it, throw on your cloak, steal a few drinks, and make like a tree and branch…. You could even sneak into the Victoria’s Secret Supermodel dressing room and just chill eating a tub of Turkey Hill ice cream and not even feel creepy about it — because technically you’re not even there right? You could even sneak into a bank and rob money — it’s not going to be a billion — but you could get away with some pesos you feel me.
Now on the other hand you could just take the billion dollars and be out. I mean with a billion dollars you could possibly have an invisible cloak made, but judging from the demand, it’s not likely even a hefty price will get you one. Now a billion dollars and you’re set for life. Scratch that… your entire family for the next 20 generations is set for life. Your great, great, great grandson, who will probably be a Jetson will be set for life — eating caviar pills and riding around in a hovering SL500 with automatic retina display and shit. With a billion dollars you could buy the Cleveland Indians and rename them the Cleveland Caribou. You could wingsuit or zipline to work. You could probably even purchase a gold plated snapping turtle and have him swimming around in a gigantic fish tank in your bedroom just for kicks.
I’d go with the billion dollars because I’d set aside 500 Mil to engineer that invisible cloak. I’d hire that MIT prodigy from Sierra Leone to build uncle Jada a fur invisible cloak and I’d still have 500 Mil to spare.
